How Concrete Overlay Can Enhance Your Outdoor Kitchen

How Concrete Overlay Can Enhance Your Outdoor Kitchen

Increasingly, people around Texas and Arizona are adding outdoor living areas to their home. The reason is simple: you can add sometimes significant living space to your property, without having to expand its footprint. Particularly in warmer climates, this option comes with significant return on investment.

But of course, you have to get it right. Adding an outdoor kitchen, for instance, only makes sense if you plan it well and use materials conducive to handling food and entertaining guests.

That’s where concrete overlay comes into play. A number of advantages make this flooring opportunity the perfect fit for your outside kitchen, or any type of outdoor living area. Some of them include:

A Better Look

First things first: without a doubt, concrete overlay can enhance the look of any outside space. That’s because its finish is made to resemble natural stone, and can be customized to fit the feel of the overall space. In other words, concrete overlay is sure to help make your kitchen a conversation piece.

Easy to Clean

Let’s not forget about cleaning up, either. Especially with a kitchen and any area in which you expect to handle food, this variable is vital. Concrete overlay will seal your floor, ensuring that any accidental spills are easily taken care of.

Custom Applications

Finally, every overlay project is done by hand, which means it can be customized specifically for your needs. Regardless of the size, style, and type of your outdoor kitchen, you will appreciate this customizability and the quality that comes with our applications.

In short, concrete overlay is the perfect fit for your outdoor living area project. To learn more about this product, and to get a quote on what it might cost to enhance your outdoor kitchen, contact us.

 

 

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. 

 

 

 

Add a Kitchen To Your Outdoor Living Area

Outdoor kitchens are becoming a very popular way to transform your backyard into the perfect area for entertaining your family and friends. If you enjoy entertaining and outdoor cooking, then it only makes sense to combine the two into your own personal backyard oasis. Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of adding a kitchen to your outdoor living area

 

 

Outdoor Enjoyment 

Outdoor kitchens give you the ability to really enjoy the outdoors. You’ll have a lot more fun entertaining when you can grill up delicious and healthy foods during your next social gathering right in your own backyard. And cooking is not the only thing that you will enjoy about it. You can really expand your outdoor kitchen to include a refrigerator, an ice maker, a patio heater, and lots of furniture and other accessories. Let your cooking and your entertaining preferences and styles run wild. 

Adds Value To Your Home 

Outdoor kitchens are a great investment and can add a ton of value to your home. It’s one outdoor home improvement project that can give you a serious return on your investment. You will get nothing but the best in materials and components, making your outdoor kitchen able to withstand even the harshest weather. 

Let us help you take your outdoor cooking and entertaining to a whole new level by creating your very own outdoor kitchen sanctuary anywhere in the Houston, Dallas, Austin, or Phoenix areas. It’s something that you’ll definitely be proud to call your own. Contact us today at Allied Outdoor Solutions to get started!

 

 

Update Your Pool With A Pool Deck Overlay

Updating the interior of your home may seem more pressing than updating the exterior. New appliances and fixtures are an obvious place to start when updating. But the exterior of your home needs some TLC too, especially if you have a pool. A pool deck overlay is an excellent way to give the exterior of your home a more modern look. Having a pool is a luxury, but you want your pool deck to be luxurious too— not just plain, boring concrete.

There are a number of ways we can help you customize your pool deck at Allied Outdoor Solutions. We serve many areas of Texas and Arizona. So if your pool deck needs an update and you are in Phoenix, Austin, Dallas, Ft. Worth, Houston, or San Antonio, one of our locations will be happy to help you.

The great thing about updating your pool deck is we don’t have to tear out your existing pool deck. That would be expensive and messy. We can just do an overlay, either with carvestone or concrete. Whether you want to expand the area you have paved, or just give your current deck a facelift, we will leave your yard looking more beautiful than you could have imagined. Allied Outdoor Solutions does stamped concrete using dozens of stamps and rich, beautiful colors. And our carvestone overlay method is a gorgeous way of getting the appearance of natural stone without the expense and the slippery nature of stone.

Contact us at Allied Outdoor Solutions today and we can start dreaming together about an improved pool deck overlay to update the exterior of your home.

Update Your Pool With Pool Deck Resurfacing

Summer is just around the corner and now is the time to complete any projects on your pool. If your pool is looking dated and you want a fresh look for your backyard, check out Allied Outdoor Solutions for your pool deck resurfacing needs.

Whether you want to update your pool for your own enjoyment, or if you are looking to sell your home, updating your pool deck is going to add to the value of your house. Realtor.com did a study to find the top 10 cities for people who want pools in their yard, and six of those cities were in Arizona! Plano, Texas also came up on the list with 31% of homeowners having pools.

According to the article, one Arizona realtor, Carol Royse, said any home valued at over $250,000 is almost guaranteed to have a pool. She said she recently showed a very nice home to a number of people, all of whom rejected it because it didn’t have a pool. So, if you live in Texas or Arizona, investing in your pool is a big deal.

Allied Outdoor Solutions creates an overlay for your existing pool deck so you don’t have to deal with the cost and the mess of tearing out the existing pool deck. Under the right circumstances, we can also cover pea gravel, brick, and more. All of our concrete overlays can be customized with dozens on patterns and colors to make the beautiful pool deck you have always dreamed of.

Contact us today at Allied Outdoor Solutions and we can get your pool ready for summer by resurfacing your pool deck with an overlay you will love.

Schedule a Pool Deck Overlay in Winter to Have it Ready to Enjoy in the Spring

Schedule a Pool Deck Overlay in Winter to Have it Ready to Enjoy in the Spring

With Texas temperatures, it is easy to spend most of spring and summer in the pool. Unfortunately, this might not be the best option when your pool deck is showing its age. Instead of letting the deck continue to deteriorate another year, you should invest in a pool deck overlay to improve the entire area. Ideally, you should get professional assistance during winter to have the pool ready for spring.

Get the Work Done in the Off-season

Although you could certainly spend some time in the pool throughout wintertime, the outside temperature is not always ideal, especially at nighttime. However, spring and summer are the best seasons for pool time, so you should make it a top priority to get the work done in the off-season.

Enjoy Flexible Scheduling

When you make plans to handle the work during winter, you do not have to worry about tight scheduling as professionals will have more time on their hands compared to other seasons. If you want to take care of the project on weekdays, weekends, or when you are on vacation, you can do so with ease.

Avoid the Heavy Rain

It is spring and summer in which Texas receives the most rain, which can lead to postponed projects. However, winter is the season that receives the least amount of rain, so you get to enjoy fewer delays.

If you want to have your pool ready to go as soon as spring arrives, you should at least start making plans for your pool deck overlay. Contact us if you want to learn more about our professional services.

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!

B. Caswell

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

J. Svatek

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.
