Custom Patio Covers
As the old year ends and the new one begins many homeowners start thinking about the warmer months ahead.
Outdoor birthday parties and other occasions, backyard barbecues with friends and family, and splashing in the pool to cool off after a long day of summer fun are just a few of the things that come to mind for those dreaming of what is to come!
Is your patio ready?
Here are a few things to think about when remodeling your existing patio or, if you don’t have one yet, to consider when designing your outdoor palace!
Whether replacing one that is weather-worn or having one installed for the first time; you have quite a few options when it comes to patio covers in Houston.
Pergolas are patio covers that offer a stylish look to any outdoor venue. These patio covers are typically made of wood and are ideal for outdoor entertaining that lets the sunlight in a while offering a great visual aesthetic.
For a more private and enclosed setting consider a patio cover that you can enclose with a screen to keep the mosquitoes at bay while allowing you to relax outside with close friends and good food!

Stone and Concrete Accents
Statues, outdoor fountains, stone benches, pathway stones or tiles: these are just a few of the accents you can bring to an existing patio design (or include into a new construction project) to add further elements of style and appeal to your home’s exterior.
Stone and concrete elements can be purchased in a wide variety of colors and textures to match any design theme or color scheme. If you have a sample of concrete or stonework already present, you can share it with a supplier to have them find a match or create one when it comes to pathway stones, tiles, and other items.
Including a row of evergreens to enclose your patio from view, blooming seasonal plants in hanging pots, or an old-world looking rack of succulents are all great ideas to bring the constructed and natural into a stunning visual harmony. There are also a number of seasonal blooming shrubs, bushes, and small trees that do well in Houston weather with a little care.
Thinking about this element of your patio area is also a great time to plan other backyard landscaping projects so that everything can be done at the same time to have your place looking photo perfect!
Deck or Concrete?
Whether you are having a patio built from the foundation up or thinking about a redesign; choosing from concrete for the flooring and other areas or deciding to have a deck built takes some serious consideration.
The pros of a concrete patio are long term durability (assuming proper care of course), the ability to have colored concrete poured that matches your home’s exterior color scheme, and many other benefits.
The advantages of having a deck built are in the visual appeal of a rich wood finish, the sweeping and eye-catching design patterns available as well as the speed in which they are typically completed.

The most significant investment people make today is their home, and protecting your investment by extending the life of your roof is a great way to get the most out of it.
Here are five things to consider when you want to extend the life of your patio cover’s roof:
Inspect the Roof Regularly
Getting up onto your roof every six months or more often is a great way to extend the life of your roof as this will give you an idea of maintenance that is needed before they become a serious issue.
Inspect the sealing around skylights, the flashing on your chimney, and other areas, as well as checking your vents to be sure they are not blocked by any debris or damaged.
Finding any trouble areas early on and addressing them can lead to money saved from what would eventually be costly repairs.
Replace Worn or Missing Shingles Quickly
Worn or missing shingles are like holes in the armor of your roof: holes that let rain and wind in to deal severe damage to your roof system as well as the structure of your home itself.
There are tons of DIY tips and videos on how to replace shingles, and it’s not as difficult as you might think to make this kind of minor repair yourself with a few necessary tools and supplies you can purchase from just about any home improvement store.
If you don’t feel comfortable making the repairs yourself, the cost to have a roofing company do it for varies by the contractor and the complexity of the fixes in question.
Invest in a Liquid Polymer Roof Coating
This type of liquid coating does for your roof what weather sealant does for a wooden deck- help to keep out moisture and make your shingles more weather resistant.
Application of a liquid polymer roof coating typically only takes a few hours and the benefits you will reap from that time can’t be overstated regarding extending the life of your home’s roof.
This roof protectant is available at most home improvement stores, and is most effective on newly shingled roofs so if you have just had your roof replaced now is the time to apply this weather resistant coating.
Trim Tree Branches Near Your Roof
Untrimmed tree branches represent a severe threat to the roof of your patio cover, especially when the wind blows during storms.
You can avoid the need to pay for costly roof repairs by making sure that branches near your roof are trimmed back, unable to scratch shingles off of your roof and exposing your home’s roof to moisture and other elements.
Make sure to look into local laws before trimming tree branches that hangover from a neighbor’s home to your property to see what your rights are.
Keep Your Gutters Clear
Keeping your gutters free of leaves and other debris also help to protect and extend the life of your roof.
Trapped leaves and other objects keep your gutters from adequately diverting water away from your home, which can damage your shingles and soak through the underlayment into the structure of your roof.
Cleaning or having your gutter cleaned at least once in spring and fall (or more often depending on your property’s individual needs) is essential to protect your home from damaging water build up from blocked gutters.
