Double the Pleasure – Archadeck of Northeast Dallas Receives Two Archadeck Design Awards for Q4 2021!

Dallas award-winning outdoor living spaces are twice as nice with these masterworks from Archadeck of Northeast Dallas-Southlake.

Q4 award winners Archadeck of NE Dallas

This premier Dallas patio builder cannot think of a better way to ring out 2021 than with a double dose of praise and recognition from our global outdoor living space peers.


For starters, the homeowners of this stunning Northeast Dallas property wanted us to extend their backyard patio. Beyond that, they asked for something magical, with a touch of elegant whimsy.

So our design team drafted a subtly rich color palette of natural flagstones to augment the original structure that the family enjoys.

Our patio extension solution begins at the backyard’s existing pergola’s support post. From there, we meticulously added the new hardscape elements so that the marriage of the old patio and the new materials is absolutely seamless.

The enhanced patio space is an ingenious blend of soft textures against vibrant foliage in this well-manicured backyard. The casual and playful symmetry of the flagstone patio extension offers a treat for the eyes with its hues of off-white, faded cinnamon tones and soft grays – all intertwined in absolute harmony.

Adding to the captivating beauty of this patio transformation is the curved patio edge and the seating wall that crowns it, adjacent to the stacked stone fireplace. All in all, it adds up to an inviting outdoor space just waiting to be enjoyed by family and friends.

As we completed this Dallas installation, a neighbor smiled and commented in a complimentary fashion saying, “My gosh. It all looks so beautiful. I would call it outdoor architectural dessert.”

Apparently, the outdoor living space designers and builders of the Archadeck enterprise agreed by bestowing the 2021 Design Excellence Award to Dallas porch builder and franchise owners Agustin and Amanda Garza.

With nine previous Archadeck Design Excellence Awards to their credit from previous seasons, lead designer Agustin hails from an extensive background in remodeling in the home improvement sector.

Agustin’s spouse and business partner, Amanda, attributes their success in part to his enthusiasm, dedication, commitment and leadership skills in operating one of Archadeck’s most successful United States locations.


Plano, Texas is where the Garzas’ second Design Excellence project can be found.

This outdoor living extension and transformation began as an exposed patio with a small shaded area which the homeowners wanted to expand.

The homeowners had a typical brushed concrete pool surround with a small patio right outside the back door of their home. While a small portion of the patio was covered, there was never enough shade to seek shelter from strong sun exposure. The homeowners asked Archadeck of NE Dallas-Southlake to design and build a space that would add shade, versatility and fun to their poolside area.

This highly valuable backyard renovation project had an unusual component, too. All of our outdoor living projects are custom-designed, but this one in particular required an extra level of customization.

The home’s brick wall facing the pool included two tall, narrow windows. Our clients wanted a different wall and a different window looking out onto the patio and pool area – a total change from the area’s previous life.


Archadeck of NE Dallas-Southlake built a custom gable porch roof over the open space, creating a luxurious covered patio. Along with the gable roof, the porch structure includes a massive king truss beam with struts. King post truss is the name given to the “crow’s feet” decorative supports under the gable roof end.

The king truss beam is the long beam running end-to-end across the width of the patio roof. An integral part of the porch cover’s support structure, this beam helps support the weight and span of the porch roof. Because of the king truss beam’s immense size, we rented a lift in order to get the beam into position – a tactic often seen in home transformation TV programs where a larger open space is desired.

Every year, the Archadeck Design Excellence honors are awarded in different project categories including patio projects, porch projects, new deck builds and upgrades, hardscape designs and outdoor living rooms.

The accolade speaks to the outdoor living franchisee’s commitment to design excellence, as well as to better building standards which have made the Archadeck brand legendary.
