“I saw a backyard in Houston that looked like the Palace of Versailles, and the entire place was done by Allied Outdoor Solutions.”
– Michael Berry, News Radio 740

Our Process

Because outdoor living projects can go so many directions, there is no single route for arriving at the backyard you want. The first step in our free estimating process, however, is for one of our project consultants to meet you at your house. Our goal for this initial visit is to understand your vision for your backyard, and that vision can be almost limitless. Our project consultants go through rigorous training to assist you no matter the direction you choose to go, and they bring an iPad filled with pictures of completed projects in case you need a few ideas. From that point, some projects are simple and require very few decisions up front; some require several meetings, rendered drawings, and hours of preparation before a quote can even be given. Regardless, Allied handles the project from cradle to grave: whether it’s HOA, permitting, or helping with specific design aspects, you can count on Allied’s experience to complete the process and build the backyard you’ve always wanted. Our goal throughout the process, no matter the size, is to make sure you see your dream become a reality.


Allied Outdoor Solutions - Build Your Dream Outdoor Living Area

The Outdoor Living division at Allied Outdoor Solutions completes a wide variety of projects: we custom build patio covers, pergolas, summer kitchens, fire features, water features and anything else that can be dreamt up. We can custom-build anything with any finish necessary to ensure the new project complements the already unique features of your home. Your project could be tied in to the house or freestanding; it could incorporate stucco, natural stone, ledgestone, travertine, granite, or Silestone; your floors could be an overlay, pavers, concrete, or wood decking; and the structure itself could be built with cedar, aluminum, treated lumber or hardi- products. Given our wide-range of expertise and resources, rest assured we can work with you each step of the way to build your personal tastes into each layer of the project.

Frequently Asked Questions

Our goal is to get you pricing at the completion of the initial visit. Due to the complexity of certain projects, though, it can sometimes take a few days to get you accurate pricing. Typically, pricing and drawings (if necessary) will be back to you within a week.

That is a difficult question to answer. Some of our projects can be completed within a week of the start date but that is not the norm. Most of our projects can be completed within a few weeks but it can take longer than that as well. Things like inspections, permitting, HOA, scheduling delays and design changes can slow us down during the project. Quite frankly, while respecting your time and property, we’d rather take a little longer and get it right. Rest assured, you will be given a projected timeline and then communicated thoroughly the whole way through.

We have a variety of ways that this can happen. Often times, homeowners are able to select materials used on the job from our iPads but sometimes more is required. We will meet you at a stone yard, deliver samples to your house or whatever else is necessary for you to make your decisions.

Yes. We maintain general liability insurance to make sure you are covered. We handle the gathering of all required permitting, scheduling of any inspections and the entire HOA application process as well. Our goal is to make this a much simpler process than you anticipate.

It’s understandable to feel some reservations when a project ties in to your home. But that’s why you chose Allied: first, you know we’ve already done the work to find contractors who will correctly handle the difficult, technical sides of your construction project; second, you know we honor our workmanship warranty. In other words, we don’t anticipate a leak; but if there is one, we’re the company you want addressing that situation, too.  

Every outdoor living project we complete comes with a one year workmanship warranty, which is a guarantee that the installation will meet our internal standards. In some cases, product lines may come with an additional manufacturer’s warranty, which warrants against defects in the materials themselves. These manufacturer’s warranties vary in length, and can be discussed with your consultant.

We can use anything from Viking to Wolf to RCS but we prefer to use Coyote. We feel that they provide the best value, a great look and a dependable product.

Absolutely. We have several “standard” packages available and we can also construct a custom landscape design for your space. We offer a great variety of different plants and trees specifically suited to fit the needs of our customers in both Texas and in Arizona. As a design/build firm, we will not only provide the plants but will also provide the installation of your gardening elements.
