Enjoy The Space You Truly Deserve In Your Backyard With A Round Rock Patio ExtensionEnjoy The Space You Truly Deserve In Your Backyard With A Round Rock Patio Extension

Often times when we buy a new home there is one or two things we would change about it. This is a classic example.

This generously sized two-story Round Rock family home has a sprawling emerald green landscape of turf in the backyard – and an existing covered porch.


The family wanted to extend the patio area to enjoy the fresh air with a custom Round Rock patio design. They also wanted a way to ward off the hot summer sun in the afternoons as they enjoy their covered patio, so they called the patio and porch experts at Archadeck.

Getting What You’re Wishing For Is Easier When You Know Who To Call

Luckily for this family, they made the right call by contacting team at Archadeck of Austin. Within seconds of their call to our team at 512-886-8367, they had scheduled their complimentary design consultation.

Just as quick was our team’s response time to set up a meeting at the family home to see how we could help.

The good news is that the backyard was expansive enough to house virtually any size outdoor living space, but the family also wanted to keep the green vista as unspoiled as possible – balancing what they wanted with what they currently loved.


After the consultation, we recommended that the new Round Rock patio extension was plumb with the horizon of the great room window expanse, ensuring clean lines for architectural aesthetic harmony. By the end of construction, this window-based width scenario proved to be the right move – looking as if the new patio extension had always been there!

For visual interest, instead of plain concrete for the new foundation, we recommended using concrete with a TPC overlay in a flagstone pattern, which is especially noticeable along the Round Rock patio picture framing.

Privacy Blended With Graceful Outdoor Air Flow Design With This Innovative Drop Screen

When the sun’s exposure gets a little too intense – or to just provide a bit of private solitude for the family while enjoying their updated space, we protected the front of the frame-enclosed area with a custom Corradi drop screen.

Here are the top 10 advantages of this Round Rock drop screen enhancement:

1. Weather Protection

Sun Protection: Texas experiences hot and sunny weather, and a drop screen can provide shade, reducing the impact of direct sunlight on your patio and making it more comfortable.

Rain Protection: Protect your outdoor furniture, flooring, and other items from rain, preventing damage and maintaining the overall aesthetic of the patio.

2. Temperature Control

Cooling Effect: By blocking the sun's rays, drop screens can help maintain a cooler temperature on your patio, making it more enjoyable during hot summer days.

3. Privacy

Visual Privacy: Drop screens can create a sense of seclusion, offering privacy from neighbors or passersby, enhancing the comfort of your outdoor space.

4. Insect Protection

Bug Control: Round Rock, Texas, is known for its insects, especially during warmer months. A drop screen can act as a barrier, keeping out mosquitoes, flies, and other pests, allowing you to enjoy your patio without constant annoying interruptions.

5. Wind Control

Wind Reduction: In windy conditions, a drop screen can provide a barrier, reducing the impact of strong gusts and making your outdoor space more comfortable and usable.

6. Versatility

Adjustable: Custom drop screens are often adjustable, allowing you to control the amount of sunlight, airflow, and visibility according to your preferences and the current weather conditions.

7. Enhanced Aesthetics

Customization: You can choose a design, color, and material that complements the overall aesthetic of your home and patio, adding a touch of style to your outdoor space.

8. Extended Use of Outdoor Space

Year-Round Enjoyment: With weather protection and temperature control, your Round Rock patio and porch combination outdoor living space can be used throughout the year, not just during specific seasons.

9. Increased Property Value

Investment: Enhancing your outdoor living space with a custom drop screen can add value to your property, making it more appealing to potential buyers.

10. Low Maintenance

Easy to Clean: Depending on the material chosen, drop screens can be relatively easy to clean and maintain, ensuring a hassle-free outdoor experience, making them a win/win.
