Spruce up Your Outdoor Living Areas for Fall Entertainment In Houston – Dallas – Austin, Texas

Three Ways to Spruce up Your Outdoor Living Areas for Fall Entertainment In Houston – Dallas – Austin, Texas

One of the best things about living in Texas is that the weather is generally nice, year-round. You can truly enjoy your outdoor living areas, to relax and spend time with friends and family. However, the amount of pleasure you’ll get out of your space is directly related to how well it functions. Here are three fantastic ways to enhance your outdoor living areas so you get the most enjoyment possible from them this fall.

Start From The Ground Up

If your patio, sidewalks and pool deck are cracked, broken or stained, fall is the perfect time to get them back in shape. In most cases, replacement isn’t an absolute necessity, it’s actually easier, less time consuming and less expensive to resurface them. Concrete overlays hide imperfections, create a smooth surface, and enhance the beauty of your yard. Whether you have a modern, conventional or rustic home, overlays can be created to match the style and colors that best suit your tastes. What’s more, they will last for many years to come, making them a good investment.

Create A Focal Point

Perhaps one of the most attractive, and useful, additions to an outdoor living area is a fire pit or outdoor fireplace. Placed in the center of a seating area, it provides warmth and light, creating a cozy retreat. It also gives you and your family the opportunity to roast marshmallows for s’mores, or to cook hotdogs on a stick, just like at camp. At the other end of the spectrum is a water feature. From a small fountain to a larger waterfall and pond, water features are a beautiful, soothing addition to your patio, yard, or garden areas.

Make It Comfortable

The whole idea of having an outdoor living area is to enjoy it as much as possible. Comfortable, weatherproof furniture and adequate lighting, therefore, are a must. A beautiful patio cover or pergola will help keep the rain and sun from dampening your enjoyment. Large potted plants and trellises help create a cozy, private space without enclosing the area completely. And, of course, nothing beats a fully-equipped outdoor kitchen, conveniently located near your lounge area.

If your outdoor space isn’t fulfilling your needs, contact us at Allied Outdoor Solutions. Whether you have small yard, or a sprawling estate, our experts will help you achieve the look and feel you’ve always dreamed of.

Resurfacing your pool deck can be a fantastic way to breathe new life into a backyard after moving into a house, but the process can be confusing if it’s your first time getting this project done. Instead of being concerned over costs or the work that’s involved with resurfacing the deck, it’s helpful to look into what to expect. Carvestone is a great option and can transform your backyard.

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.

Free Ideas to Update your Pool Deck

-Power Wash to Take Care of Grime
The first step to resurfacing a pool deck is getting the surface power washed. While this can be done on your own, professionals can help get the deepest clean using power washing equipment. The powerful jet can help remove grime and debris that have been let to sit on the pool deck.

-Grind Away Any Damage
If your pool deck has any kind of damage, it may be a good idea to get it grinded away. A wood grinding tool can help buff out any splinters and minor damage, leaving the deck smooth.

-Adding Vibrancy to the Deck Color
Wooden pool decks are unique in that they can become dull in color after a few years. To take care of this, consider getting the deck updated with a new stain. With all of your options for stains, you can add new color to the deck.

-Pouring a Cement Overlay on Top
If your pool deck is cement or has natural stone, you may want to get it resurfaced using a cement overlay. In this case, you can be picky when looking over the variations in colors and patterns.
Please contact us for more information regarding resurfacing pool decks.

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 is a Great Option for Pool Deck Resurfacing

Pool deck resurfacing is something homeowners face when they want a pool deck that has a solid, stone surface that does not become slippery when wet or develops cracks after a short period of time. Some try methods such as stamped concrete or spraying on concrete-like substances. However, these tend to lack durability, involve messy tear outs or end up costing the homeowner a bundle. With Carvestone, you can get pool deck resurfacing that is light years ahead of the competition thanks to its many benefits. Carvestone is available through Allied Outdoor Solutions, a premier resurfacing company in Houston that has an experienced crew of installers who perform each job by hand. One of the first things people notice about Carvestone is that it looks like real stone. This is important for homeowners who want to have the look, and feel, of real stone for their pool deck. This also works for driveways and patios as well.

One important factor that applies especially to pool deck resurfacing is that Carvestone is not slippery like real stone or stamped concrete. In Houston, people use their pools a lot, so there are always people getting in and out of pools. A slippery surface has led to accidents before, but with Carvestone, this will not be a problem. Carvestone is trowel by hand and we use sponges to give it even more texture. Also, Carvestone is durable and can last a long time.

Also, Carvestone can cover just about any surface. Concrete coating is the most common, but it can also cover pea gravel, cool deck, brick and pool coping.

The work our installers do for pool deck resurfacing will astonish you. They look at each job as if it were a work of art. Our workers do the job by hand, allowing for a more detailed finish and one that is custom-fit to your specifications. They trowel, carve, color and grout with their own hands to give you a pool deck that looks great and will hold up over the years. Our first priority to our customers is satisfaction. We will prepare a custom sample board for you before we color. In the end, you will be amazed at how Carvestone looks, feels and lasts.

Carvestone Provides a Beautiful Coating for Driveways in Houston

Installing Carvestone on driveways will provide homeowners with a quality, time-tested surface that can be custom designed for any home. Expert craftsman can use Carvestone to transform a driveway that is experiencing cracking or discoloration, or can spruce up one that is just too plain. In Houston, these problems are prevalent; however, Carvestone by Allied Outdoor Solutions can provide a long-term solution for driveways that will significantly upgrade a home’s curb appeal.  Allied Outdoor Solutions has laid down jobs that have lasted longer than a decade. You will not have the problems with material cracking when you install Carvestone unless there happens to be a considerable substrate issue. Cheaper, quick fixes like stamped concrete or spray-on will not last as long as Carvestone, so the chance of cracking increases if you cut corners. Taking a cheaper route for an overlay project involving driveways in Houston is not a good option for long-lasting quality because in all likelihood, a homeowner will have to spend money doing the job all over again in just a few years.

Carvestone can also make your driveway become a beautiful addition to your home, rather than just a place to park cars. It is 100 percent customizable, so the design options are endless. Each application of Carvestone is detailed, with all of our projects being completed by hand. Our design experts will hand-trowel, carve, color and grout each job to create a driveway the way the homeowner wants it.

Also, Carvestone has a realistic stone appearance. It has real quarried limestone mixed in, making it suitable for exterior application, with compressive, flexural and tensile strengths unequalled by other types of coating. In addition, Carvestone can cover almost any type of surface including pea gravel, cool deck, brick and concrete. Houston residents who want quality when applying a concrete coating should make Carvestone their first and only choice. Even Randy Lemmon from KTRHs Gardenline” says that Carvestone is the perfect solution for resurfacing driveways.

Allied Outdoor Solutions sets out to provide superior satisfaction for each and every customer with professional coating for driveways in Houston. For more on our concrete coatings, Houston residents should call us at 1-800-GO-STONE.
