Style Your Houston-based Home with Carvestone

Schedule FREE Consultation

The custom design possibilities are almost endless with a Carvestone overlay in Houston. Whether you live in West University and would prefer a geometric pattern or in Old Town Katy and want a more traditional design, our goal is to craft something that enhances the existing style of your home. We say craft because our rigorous, hand-applied carvestone overlay process allows us to control the texture, color, shade and grout that best fits your space. From there, it’s time to sit back and enjoy a custom Carvestone overlay built for durability and crafted for beauty.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why choose Allied Outdoor Solutions?
Our biggest strength is a commitment to two related issues: installation quality and customer satisfaction for our Houston customers. We remain committed to ensuring every stage of the process is carefully outlined.

We’ll have a thorough pre-job walk-through. All the necessary Houston permits will be secured, drainage and irrigation considered, inspections arranged, HOA approval received, layout confirmed and, finally, work can begin. After completion, your project manager will perform a post-job walk-through.
What makes a Carvestone application unique?
The process of hand-texturing, carving, coloring, and grouting will ensure we achieve the most realistic look possible while drawing in the character of the objects, materials, colors, and textures in your Houston surroundings. Small site-specific details like expansion joints, cracks, height variations and the sealing process will be discussed and handled on site during pre- and post-job walkthroughs with our construction operations team, and you can be sure at every step our artisans and their supervisors have the expertise to address them in the most structurally and aesthetically sound methods available.
What is the process for a Carvestone project?
First, we meet with you. We do more listening than talking to discover your vision for the space. Using a sample board, you’ll be able to direct us on the color, pattern, and aesthetic details of your piece. Secondly, we properly prepare the existing surface so that your new look will properly bond with your existing surface. Finally, the artistry begins and your experience becomes entirely yours, as our craftsmen apply every subsequent layer by hand to accommodate your desires and your hardscape’s demands.
What surfaces can Carvestone cover?
Durable and adaptable, Carvestone should never be limited to just concrete. Pea gravel, cool deck, and even vertical surfaces can benefit from this beautiful and durable option in the Houston climate. Additionally, if you’re in love with what Carvestone has to offer but don’t yet have a concrete slab where it can be applied, we can plan, produce and pour a concrete base to facilitate our Carvestone application.

Not 100% certain a potential surface will work with Carvestone? Please, don’t hesitate to reach out to us. Our project consultants have gone through extensive product training and can readily discern the types of surfaces where a Carvestone application will be most successful.
Is Carvestone slip resistant?
Walking on wet surfaces is always a bit tricky, especially wet decorative surfaces. Carvestone is no exception, but we’ve built two layers of defense against slipperiness into our process. The first is the texture itself: our methods of troweling and sponging the fresh Carvestone are specifically designed and create an irregular, contoured surface that helps provide traction. The second is the sealing process: popular sealers tend to create smooth, slippery surfaces, so we blend non-skid agents into our sealer to combat this effect and maximize slip resistance.
How thick is the coating?
We typically apply our Carvestone application at approximately 1/4 of an inch. There are many site-specific items that will influence the overall depth of the system. Substrate changes, tapering, texturing, and design preferences can play a role in determining your Carvestone’s final thickness.
Can it withstand the wear and tear of cars on a driveway?
Yes! Carvestone has a PSI rating that exceeds that of a standard concrete installation. Accounting for normal wear and tear and problems caused by substrate defects, Carvestone driveways have proven extremely durable. Some have existed for more than a decade and still look beautiful.
What can you do about cracks?
If you decide on a random pattern, such as flagstone, we incorporate any cracks into the pattern. On a geometric pattern, the cracks are carefully epoxied for added strength. Carvestone is extremely durable, but we cannot guarantee against future cracking or the recurrence of substrate cracks.
What do you do with expansion joints?
We fill the joints with a color-coded, self-leveling mastic. As it’s curing, we sprinkle sand on it, giving it a natural finish.
Are there any surfaces Carvestone can't cover?
Wood, pavers, and concrete that’s in very bad shape. However, we can repair or pour concrete to prepare your surface for Carvestone.
What maintenance will be required going forward?
Carvestone should be cleaned and sealed every two years. With this proper maintenance, any color fading should be minimal and uniform.
Is there a warranty offered?
Yes. We are proud to offer you a seven year (residential) and one year (commercial) limited warranty that covers the bond between the Carvestone and your underlying surface. The warranty protects against chipping and delamination of your Carvestone from the substrate. Carvestone is exceptionally durable and not particularly susceptible to these problems that are often seen in other overlays on the market.

The warranty does not cover cracking, color or sealer loss, or mastic failure.
