Patio Cover Design & Build in Houston, Texas


Custom constructed shade structures for Houstonians

Schedule FREE Consultation

A beautifully designed patio simply isn’t complete without a place to escape the summer sun in Houston. A hand-crafted pergola or awning will help provide that much needed shade while a custom-built patio cover will not only provide the necessary shade, it can protect you from the rain and other irritating elements as well. The materials selected may change as you move from Memorial to The Woodlands but a shade structure’s purpose remains the same regardless of your geography: allowing you to escape the heat and enjoy your outdoor space no matter the weather.

Our Build Process

1. Design

We’ll start by discovering how you’ll use your new space as we work through elements like the pitch of the roof and raw materials we’ll build with.

2. Prepare

HOA approvals, 3-D renderings, architectural drawings, and engineer’s stamps are often standard components of our preparatory work.

3. Build

Whether cedar, steel, stone, hardie or other raw materials, our experienced carpenters will cut and craft until your shade structure is complete.

4. Live

We firmly believe in starting with the end in mind and delivering an outdoor space you’ll enjoy for years to come.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much shade does a pergola provide?
It depends on the number of tiers and how closely the slats are constructed to one another. It also depends on how those slats are oriented as they relate to the sun. We’ll discuss all of this onsite.
Does my structure need to be architected and engineered?
Most of the time, yes, but every city throughout the Greater Houston area is different. In some cases, the city won’t require a permit on a smaller pergola. Even in these cases, we’re likely to create an architectural plan so that we’re all on the same page.
Do you offer alternative building materials to wood?
We do. Our structures can be constructed out of treated lumber or cedar. From there they can even be wrapped with stone or painted hardie. Beyond that, we commonly build with aluminum products and less commonly construct with steel.
Can you weather-proof a pergola?
We don’t install polycarbonate. While great in concept, our experience has driven our decision to move away from this product.
How do I get this approved by my HOA or city inspector?
We will handle all HOA and city permitting required by the city of Houston.
