Get Ready to Entertain with Your New Outdoor Living Areas

Summer will be here before you know it. Warm weather and longer days will sneak in when you aren’t looking. Weekend cookouts and pool parties will become the norm, and many an evening will be spent outside sipping lemonade and watching the sun go down. 

Outdoor living areas can enhance your summer experience in many ways. Whether you are a summer chef, a fish at heart, or an observer, your summer will be improved by some simple backyard adjustments. Here are a few of the ways you can change up your yard to make it perfect for you.

 

 

Resurfaced Pool Deck

No backyard pool is complete without a nice surrounding surface. A beautiful new surface surrounding the water makes for a much prettier and enjoyable backyard landscape. Add some chairs, a grill, and a table for the perfect summertime hangout.

Fire Pit

Everyone loves late summer nights sitting around a fire. Campfire songs and s’mores bring back wonderful childhood memories and create fond new memories too. Custom fire pits built into your deck are an excellent way to add to your outdoor living space, and are a perfect addition to any summer party. Be sure to keep fire wood handy for those impromptu hot dog roasts and you’ll be ready for a summer full of fun.

Covered Patio

Sometimes the summer sun is too hot to handle. During these days, a covered patio is an absolute life saver. A covered patio gives you the ability to spend time outside without sitting in direct sunlight, so you can enjoy the great outdoors without the sunburn and sweating to go with it. Additionally, a covered patio area with a fan blowing is the perfect setting for an afternoon board game on a hot summer day. 

 

If these items sound like a good addition to your summertime fun, we would love to help you out. Please contact us today at Allied Outdoor Solutions for more information. 

 

 

 

Three Ideas for Outdoor Living Areas That Add Style And Function

Three Ideas for Outdoor Living Areas That Add Style And Function

Many homeowners invest considerable time and resources into updating a large portion of their home’s interior, and with good reason. After all, your home is your castle, and if you truly want to reap the benefits of a comforting and inviting residence, you must make periodic updates. Often however, homeowners overlook the outdoor living areas when going over their update options. Sure, they address issues with the roof and siding when they become necessary, but what about adding style and function to outdoor spaces beyond those basic necessities? The following are three great ideas for outdoor living areas that add considerable style and function:

  1. Colors and Heat – Don’t be afraid to go bold when choosing accessories for outdoor patios and picnic areas. People tend to want to go neutral indoors because it is a safe option. The outside area is a little different because color goes so well with green grass and the blue sky and yellow sun of a warm summer day. This can easily be achieved with colorful lawn chairs, seat cushions for patio tables, and even a splash of color with various lawn ornaments and wind chimes. Another good idea is to add the warmth of a fire pit as a center piece to the patio. This provides a little added color and style as well, not to mention the function of making chilly winter nights a perfect time for gathering outside with drinks under some blankets
  2. Outdoor Kitchen – Why just have an almost mandatory grill with a few fold-up chairs for an outdoor cooking space when you can have a full-fledged, state-of-the-art kitchen? Think about installing more appliances like a refrigerator, a sink, and even a pizza oven for a little added distinction. Most people who create a second kitchen outdoors realize that it becomes a beautiful centerpiece for outdoor entertainment.
  3. More Living Space – Creating a second living area outdoors can be a wonderful way to add style and function. Set up cozy sofas, comfortable chairs, inviting tables and even decorative lighting in a way that people can gather for a variety of purposes. This way you and your guests are not restricted to being indoors for intimate conversation, friendly card games, and other activities suitable for a living area.

“Allied Outdoor Solutions” has over 25 years of experience in the Texas home improvement market. Please contact us today to schedule a free consultation for your outdoor living area project.

Freshen Up Your Outdoor Living Area with a Concrete Overlay

Freshen Up Your Outdoor Living Area with a Concrete Overlay

Although the idea of spending time in your backyard might sound extremely nice, many homeowners do not take advantage of their outdoor living area for a number of reasons. If you want to start spending more time outside, you need to eliminate any problems or negative qualities about your backyard. For instance, whether you initially created a beautiful outdoor living area or you bought the home with one, it may not have aged that well, and now has become a deserted place on your property.

Fixing it up does not have to be hard when you take advantage of a concrete overlay.

Take the Old and Make it Look New

Without attractive flooring, you will have a tough time selling any space. As for the outdoors, your concrete may not be in the best condition, but you can take the old and make it look new again. Whether you want a design that is simple, intricate, or matching, the choice is in your hands.

Start Enjoying the Space Again

By taking your old concrete and making it attractive, you can start using the space again. It might be necessary to take on some other projects, such as repainting, refinishing, or buying new furniture. However, instead of trying to avoid looking outside at your unkempt outdoor space, you can be proud to open the windows in the day and start inviting family and friends for backyard gatherings.

Improve Outdoor Safety

Another important quality that comes with a concrete overlay is improved outdoor safety. If you have cracked concrete, you do not want people walking around with the danger of tripping and falling down.

3 Occasions When You Will Be Glad You Invested in an Outdoor Living Area

As spring rolls around each year, you promise yourself that this is the year you are going to make improvements to your outdoor space and enjoy it. For one reason or another, you put off adding that new patio or outdoor kitchen, and the summer passes you by. This year is the right time to improve your outdoor space with an outdoor living area. With a new outdoor kitchen, patio or fire pit, you can plan some amazing events this summer for your family and friends. Here are three occasions when you will love having an improved space.

 

Fourth of July

This year, celebrate the birth of the country in style with a new outdoor kitchen. You will be able to take your burgers and hotdogs to a whole new level. With an outdoor kitchen, you will have plenty of work area to prepare the sides that go with your meal. If you add an outdoor refrigerator, you will have space to keep easily spoiled items without constantly running in and out of the house.

 

Dinner Party

Invite your favorite friends over to enjoy your new outdoor space. Instead of hosting the dinner party inside, move your party out on to your new deck. If you invest in an outdoor kitchen, you can prepare the food there while visiting with your friends. You will find your friends angling for dinner invitations for the rest of the summer.

 

Kid’s Night

You do not want to leave the youngest members of your family out of the fun. Let your children invite their friends over for an evening of outdoor fun. You can bring out the board games and let the kids play on the new patio or enjoy a pizza cooked in your outdoor kitchen after running around the yard. At the end of the evening, you can start-up the fire pit, and let the kids make their own s’mores.

 

At Allied Outdoor Solutions, we are ready to help you plan your new outdoor space. Contact us today to learn more.

Carvestone Surfaces for Your Home

Carvestone Surfaces for Your Home


The Carvestone process originated in Europe where it has been used in restoring monuments and historic places. Carvestone Coatings received a United States patent and trademark in December, 1979.

Adding a coating of hardened, treated, colored and carved concrete and quartz compound is an economical and decorative way of resurfacing. It has become a popular way of refinishing patios, driveways, walkways and outdoor extensions of the home.

When we saw your ad in the magazine, we knew that we had found what we were looking for, but when we saw it applied in person, we were blown away!

We love the versatility of your product. Your ability to create the pattern and color that we wanted really made our decision easy.

Your product has the look of real stone, but has the unique ability to be crafted into virtually any design and color, a great combination.

Carvestone can be installed over old concrete

The Carvestone coating can be placed over old concrete, undamaged tile, brickwork, and various kinds of deck and pool coping. It can bind smooth pea gravel into an unbroken surface. It makes an excellent pool deck surface. It creates a very hard surface, three-eights of an inch in thickness, rated strong.

The exciting thing about Carvestone is that the unbroken surface is carved, colored and grouted during installation by expert technically trained artisans. The look of Carvestone goes way beyond the appearance of mere treated, died or stenciled concrete. The un-repetitious patterns and tints can’t be distinguished from rich, beautiful tile of your choice. The tile look is applied right on site while the coating is laid.
Carvestone is also a seamless surface. It has the look of individual paving stones. Realistic grouting is applied in a decorative way. However, there are no spaces. Weeds will never grow through the it. It will not crack along seams from ice or moisture.

Carvestone Surfaces for Your Home can be installed without tearing out your original paving. The work goes much faster than it would if original surfaces would have to be removed. It minimizes damage to your lawn and structures. The economy of Carvestone comes from the fact that you do not have to buy volumes of paving stones and the substrates to support them.
If you are looking for paving to enhance the outdoor enjoyment of your home, call us today at 1-800-GO-STONE.

CarveStone a Better Choice than Stamped Concrete

Adding to your home’s curb appeal can augment the enjoyment of your outdoor living space. However, cracked and slippery surfaces can devalue the experience of having a beautiful outdoor patio, driveway or pool deck. Some try methods such as stamped concrete to improve their outdoor area; however, they present issues such as unrealistic stone surfaces and can involve messy tear outs. If you are looking for long-lasting value, no messy tear outs and want to be able to custom design your outdoor living area, then choose Carvestone from Allied Outdoor Solutions as the ultimate outdoor coating.

Allied Outdoor Solutions has an experienced crew of workers who have completed hundreds of concrete resurfacing projects and treat each project as if it were a work of art. Driveways, pool decks and outdoor patios can be made to match the personality of your home, which is very important to homeowners who place so much of themselves into making their homes beautiful.

Being 100 percent customizable is another appealing option about Carvestone for those who want to put their own sense of style into beautifying their concrete. It also has the look and feel of real stone because we use actual quarried limestone. People who do not know you have Carvestone will not be able to tell the difference. Also, Carvestone is nowhere as near as slippery as stamped concrete. We trowel Carvestone by hand and use sponges to help give it more texture, thus making your outdoor area safer. This is especially important for customers seeking pool deck resurfacing, since pools decks have an increased potential for slipping. Most importantly of all, there are no messy tear outs with Carvestone. You do not have to deal with heavy construction going on in your backyard or driveway while having Carvestone installed. Carvestone is so reliable that even Randy Lemmon of KTRH’s “Gardenline” says it is the perfect solution.

Concrete coating in Houston has never been easier or more practical than it is with Allied Outdoor Solutions and Carvestone. Our commitment to you is second to none because we aim to achieve satisfaction in any and all aspects of your concrete beautifying project. If you are in need of a new look for your outdoor area, call Allied Outdoor Solutions today for our expert concrete coating services before you try stamped concrete or another method. They are also longtime members of the Better Business Bureau. You can find more information here
