Southlake, TX, Covered Patio Takes This Backyard From Better to Best!

What do you do when you already have an above-average backyard but want to make it even better? You contact Archadeck of NE Dallas-Southlake of course, where we make good backyards better and better backyards the best!


Our most recent project in Southlake, TX, is a prime example of a backyard that was in its own rite, beautiful, but needed an updated design to speak to the functionality needs the homeowners wanted. You see, they already had a patio, fire pit, and outdoor kitchen they really loved. However, the existing pergola did not provide the protection they craved to truly utilize their outdoor living area in all types of weather. They found the pergola offered little cover from the sun, and when it rained they were forced indoors.

— Backyard before we began the project.

As Southlake’s premier covered patio builder, we knew exactly what to do!

We began this backyard transformation by removing the pergola over the patio and outdoor kitchen from the back of the home. We then started construction on the covered patio that was to take its place. The new covered patio will increase the function of the entire backyard for the homeowners. A covered patio provides a refuge from the sun and inclement weather. In addition, if the homeowner is entertaining or utilizing the outdoor kitchen, they can continue to do so without being forced indoors. This patio cover is a win/win!


The covered patio/porch addition features a gable-style roof that is open-ended to aid in increased ventilation and added aesthetics. The decorative truss adds charm and elegance to the footprint of the porch, too! The cedar support beams are natural cedar that Archadeck stained in dark walnut. The patio cover interior ceiling features a pine tongue-and-groove ceiling which was also stained in dark walnut.


Of course, in true Archadeck fashion, we made sure to add ceiling fans and a pair of innovative infrared heaters to keep the covered patio comfortable in any kind of weather!


We made sure to match all the finish trim materials with those present on the existing home. The covered patio looks original to the home, and if you didn’t know better none would be the wiser.
