There are some backyards, which by their looks, seem to lack for nothing. Thing is, we really can’t know what kind of outdoor living space we require until we live in the space we have. This attractive Crystal Falls backyard patio needed more area for grilling and entertaining. Archadeck of Austin was happy to oblige!
As with many of our clients, these Leander homeowners were seeking better usability of their covered patio area. Along with a patio flooring upgrade, Archadeck of Austin achieved the additional living area they had in mind, and this new space expounds upon the stylish aesthetic that was already in place. A real backyard reTREAT!
The original salt-glazed concrete patio design created an attractive covered patio nook on the back of this beautiful home, but at only around eight feet in width, it needed expansion. That is rather narrow, even for spaces that are just meant to be private sitting areas. If you choose to grill and entertain, you certainly need more room to move freely about your patio.
Take a look at the patio before and after! A little added space goes a long way.
For this expansion, we constructed a pressure-treated wood decking structure, and created the deck with clear cedar decking. To offer ultimate protection on the expansion, these homeowners chose to add a custom cedar pergola with a Topgal polycarbonate roof, rather than typical pergola louvers.
The patio floor got a new look too!
The existing salt finish patio flooring got a beautiful new overlay with a custom pattern, chosen by our clients on-site. The floor now has an attractive flagstone pattern, and neutral tones to match the existing stone and stucco on the home.
All the cedar on this project received a rich butternut commercial-grade stain and sealer in one. The golden hues of the cedar really pull the gold tones out of the stone masonry on the home’s exterior!
Our clients wanted to recreate the railing that was original to the patio. They chose to have powder-coated iron deck and stair railings custom fabricated for the project. Each cedar railing post is topped with an LED lighted post cap.
