Benefits Of A Patio

Adding a patio to your home provides many benefits that upgrade your outdoor living space both functionally and visually. It’s easier to spend time in your backyard, and to get the most enjoyment out of it, with a patio equipped with cozy outdoor furniture, a fireplace, and other features to gather around.

  • Extended Living Space: Patios extend your home into the outdoors, creating additional space for dining, relaxing, and entertaining. In Texas, where outdoor gatherings are a cherished tradition, a patio becomes the perfect setting for backyard barbecues and family get-togethers.
  • Increased Home Value: A well-designed patio not only enhances the visual appeal of your property but can increase it’s resale value as well. This is especially valuable in Dallas, where the housing market continues to grow, and outdoor living spaces are highly prized by potential buyers.
  • Outdoor Enjoyment: Patios offer a perfect platform for enjoying the outdoors throughout the day, from your morning cup of coffee to relaxing after dinner. In Texas, where we enjoy warm weather most of the year, your patio will become a second living room for your family.
  • Customizable Options: With a variety of materials and designs to choose from, patios can be customized to your style and taste, adding as much visual appeal as functionality. In Dallas, where homes range from modern urban designs to traditional ranch styles, this customizability allows each home to retain its unique look and feel.
  • Low Maintenance: Depending on the materials chosen, patios can be incredibly low maintenance, requiring only occasional cleaning to keep them looking great. Homeowners who value durable, hassle-free solutions, love the simplicity of maintaining their home’s patio.

Patios are the foundation for beautiful outdoor living spaces, and our team of Dallas patio builders are experts at getting this done well, quickly, and hassle free.

Patio Designs

There are many popular patio designs that cater to different styles and functional needs, and you should consider carefully which designs are the best fit for your home as well as exactly what you need from your patio, beyond just space and convenience.

Here are some of the most popular patio designs requested by Dallas homeowners:

  • Brick Patios: A classic look, brick is durable and weather resistant and can be laid in various patterns like herringbone or basketweave to maximize its aesthetic appeal. Since most homes in the Dallas area are brick homes, brick patios feel right at home.
  • Paver Patios: Offering versatility in color and shape, paver patios can be customized to match any home design. They are also highly durable and easy to repair, which contributes to their massive popularity.
  • Concrete Patios: A  popular choice, concrete patios are both affordable and flexible in design. Concrete patios can be stamped, smooth, or broom finished to create a unique look and this makes them a great option for Texas homeowners looking for a cost-effective yet stylish outdoor space.
  • Tile Patios: Porcelain tile comes in various patterns and in large format for modern designsl, and can be used to create very luxurious outdoor living spaces. And their heat resistance make them especially comfortable on the feet during hot Texas summers.
  • Slate Patios: Slate offers a refined appearance with its natural color variations and texture. It’s also durable and slip-resistant, making it an excellent choice for patio areas frequently used for dining or entertainment.
  • Travertine Patios: Travertine is a natural limestone material with very organic tones and textures that feels equally right in a rustic setting as something much more elegant. Much like porcelain tile it comes in many styles and can be incorporated into many beautiful designs and is also heat (and slip) resistant.
  • Deck-Patio Combos: Combining the best of both worlds, these designs integrate one or more wooden decks with a stone or paver patio, varying the textures and levels for entertainment and relaxation. This design is especially favored in spacious backyards for connecting multiple different outdoor living spaces.

Each design has its pros and cons but we’ll help you navigate all these options to create a custom patio to fit your lifestyle and enhances your home’s appeal.

Our designer will work with you to design and customize the ideal patio to meets your needs and complement your home perfectly so that when our team of Dallas patio installers arrives you have an excellent experience and a stunning new centerpiece of your outdoor living space.

Patio Installation

After managing patio installations all across Dallas, Texas, our process is honed enough to be able to construct your patio quickly and efficiently, in a matter of a week or two, depending on your design requirements.

Here’s a detailed look at each step involved:

  • Initial Consultation: Start by discussing your vision for your patio and your requirements with our experts. We visit your home to assess the area, take measurements, and understand your style preferences and functional needs.
  • Custom Design: Based on the initial consultation, our designers create a 3D rendering of your custom patio to help you visualize the final layout and to help us plan for sun exposure and drainage to ensure the durability of your investment.
  • Material Selection: Next you’ll choose from a variety of high-quality materials to fit your aesthetic preferences and budget. We guide you through selecting materials that not only look great but also withstand the Texas weather, from intense sun to occasional heavy rains.
  • Site Preparation: Our team will prepare the construction site by clearing away debris, leveling the ground, and ensuring proper drainage. This preparation is crucial to prevent future settling and water issues, which are quite common in Texas due to its clay-rich soils.
  • Construction: Our team of builders then begins the patio construction, closely following the approved design. They will lay the foundation, set pavers or stones, and apply finishes. And we’re evaluating our progress at each step to ensure that it is executed with precision and craftsmanship to create a durable and beautiful patio.
  • Finishing Touches: After the main construction, additional features like lighting, landscaping, or custom-built elements are added. These enhancements are designed to integrate seamlessly with your new patio and the overall aesthetic of your outdoor space.
  • Final Inspection and Walk-Through: We conduct a thorough final inspection to ensure all aspects of the patio meet our high standards. During the walk-through, we review the work with you to ensure your complete satisfaction and address any final tweaks that may be necessary.

With Clark Outdoor Designs, every step of the patio installation process is handled with expert care and attention to detail, ensuring that your new outdoor space is a perfect addition to your home.

How Much Does It Cost To Put In A Patio?

The overall cost of installing a patio is determined primarily by the size of the patio, the types of materials chosen, and the complexity of the design.

Using economical options for materials like concrete pavers versus premium choices like natural stone can change the cost of the project significantly and the complexity of the patio design also plays a role.

Additional features like intricate patterns, multiple levels, built-in seating, fire pits, and so on, require additional labor and materials and increase the total cost of the project.

Testimonials

“What a great experience overall. They transformed our outdoor space. Matt and his team were great. They made sure we were completely satisfied before taking the final payment. He has also been around to answer a few follow-up questions and add some details to our outdoor kitchen after completion. Highly recommend!”

“We hired Clark Outdoor Designs to tear out an old and outdated concrete patio. They provided computer images of what the final result would look like – we have worked with several larger contractors and no one has ever provided renderings like that so it made a difference in our choice. We are very happy with the results (we went with pavers).”

“Clark Outdoor Designs turned my ordinary patio into a beautiful screened entertainment area with a vented gas grill and paddle fan. I love using it and having family and friends over. I highly recommend them.”
