Custom Stick Built Covered Patios For Your Home

  • Would you like to extend your exterior living space?
  • Are you unsure of what type of covered patio structure you should select for your home?
  • Are you overwhelmed with where to start?
  • Not sure who you should trust with such an important project?
  • Are you worried about being taken advantage of?
  • Do you want to make sure that you get the most value for your money (meaning that it's not only a safe and attractive structure but it increases the value of your home)?

If any of these questions apply to you
then you're in the right place.

The home-improvement industry has been plagued with unprofessionalism and dissatisfied homeowners for many years.

This is due to the low level of requirements for contractors before they are allowed to legally perform work on your home. Combined with an overall lack of professionalism throughout the industry.

Instead of focusing on the negative. The content on this page was created to give you enough information to make an informed decision that best serves your specific needs.

Extending the living space of your home. And entertaining family and friends outside in your very own customized living space.

It is much easier than you may think. Once you find the home improvement contractor that aligns with your vision and has a proven track record.

We know the entire process can be overwhelming at times. When figuring out where to start.

However we have found that there is a series of questions combined with your preferences will take you down a path that lead to the type of contractor that matches your preferences.

Understanding the Value Triangle

Option 1: Getting the Cheapest Price.

If your main focus is to get the cheapest price and you are not concerned about quality of materials or installation.

This also means that you are forgoing the other aspects that protect you as a homeowner. Things like liability and Workmen’s Comp. insurance. Also it typically means that the work on your project will not be warranted or held to a higher standard that would meet or exceed code. Then your best option would be to find a low cost contractor in the green sheet. Or some other local source in your neighborhood.

We have found that the majority of clients that choose this option are in a financial situation that requires them to focus on price alone. If that is you I would recommend that you use our information to help you make informed decisions along the way.

All-Tex Home Improvement Services would not be an option for #1.

Option 2: Getting the Most Value for Your Money.

If your main focus is quality materials combined with a high level of service and quality as it relates to design and installation while eliminating the potential of risk…

Then, All-Tex Home Improvement Services is your best option.

We are known for excellence in construction, project management and customer communications.

We excel in these fields because we have refined our systems over the last two decades. Plus we’re passionate about what we do.

In an effort to help you better understand the process for building a custom stick built covered patio on your home, I've listed the 17-step process that we go through for building your project.

There are more granular steps to this process internally however we decided to outline the most important ones that you need to be aware of (from the homeowners perspective).

Step 1. You contact us to schedule an On-site Assessment And Quote Of Your Project.

Step 2. We meet you on site at the scheduled time. We will perform an on-site inspection, so that we can make sure that your ideas for this new outdoor living space can be accommodated from a structural standpoint as well as a water flow perspective.

This is where we use our experience to make sure that all of the proper roof transitions and structural elements can be installed. We will use this time to help you design a space that suits your functional and aesthetic preferences.

Step 3. Once we have a clear understanding of your goals with the project. We will create a detailed outline reiterating our conversation along with a proposal listing the exact details of the project based on the agreed design and layout.

Step 4. Once you have decided to move forward with your project and your contract has been executed and the down payment has been made. We will begin CAD drawings for your new structure.

Our in-house team will send you all of the details to make sure that all channels of communication are open throughout the entire project. This is the initial on boarding phase to make sure we have an initial point of contact. And everyone is on the same page.

We excel at project management and communication with our clients. This ensures that the project meets and exceeds your standards as well as the industry standards.

Step 5. You will need to submit your project to your homeowners Association. We will help you with any questions you may have. The homeowners associations does not like to deal directly with the contractor. You can skip this step in some cases if it's a preference of yours.

Step 6. If your project is in the city and requires inspection. We will run your project through the inspection process of approval. This also includes the management and collaboration of on-site inspection by city inspectors (a city permit is not required in all cases).

Step 7. Your project is given a start date that everyone involved agrees on. Keep in mind that poor weather can affect the starting date if excessive conditions exist.

Step 8. Materials are ordered and coordinated for delivery to site.

Step 9. Demolition of work area begins on scheduled start date.

Step 10. Construction of new covered patio area begins on same day (time permitting). This is the framing stage. Where are we install decking, facia, soffit, etc..

Step 11. The roofing phase. We have a highly skilled roofing team that will match your existing shingles is closely as possible. And then perform proper transitional valleys into your new roof structure.

Step 12. The wiring phase. This is where sound wiring and electrical wiring is installed into the structure.

Step 13. The exterior painting phase. This is where all exterior surfaces are painted as spec’d on the agreement.

Step 14. Clean up phase. We keep the worksite clean and organize as the work progresses. However this is the final worksite cleanup.

Step 15. Punch-out phase. You are asked to walk the project and inspect our work and the cleanup we’ve completed. This final step is used to ensure that we’ve met all of your expectations. Any issues that you see are addressed immediately and resolve to a level that meets or exceeds your expectations.

Step 16. Completion - We ask that you fill out a “happy sheet” rating everyone that you came in contact with at throughout All-Tex Home Improvement Services.

The happy sheet gives us a 360° view of your experience. Our goal is to build this project to a level that exceeds your expectations.

We also want to build a lifetime relationship with you as well. We hope to do this by demonstrating our care, compassion, respect and accountability for your home and our project with you.

Step 17. Final payment is made and all project documentation and invoices are sent to you from the office.

Keep in mind that size of your project plus the number of add-ons or customizations i.e screen walls, custom glass walls, brick columns etc (which we love to do for clients because your customizations add your personality to the project) will add cost and time to the project.

This is our 17-step process to ensure that you're project
meets our own level of quality and time-frame.

Building a custom project on a home with a variety of conditions that include constant changing weather, pets and people along with many other potential unknown variables is a challenge.

Things do happen and issues will arise on occasion.

This is another important aspect of experience and professionalism. We take pride in building long-term relationships with you by treating you and your home as if it were our own.

A big part of this is done by being consistent and following through in until everything is complete.

It's very easy to start a project although you'll find that it's very rare for most contractors to complete what they've started in a professional way.

Quite often it's difficult to tell who you're dealing with and what level of integrity they have until you have some type of problem or unforeseen challenge arises. This is another place where we excel.

Our best clients understand that they are not purchasing perfection, because it does not exist.

We excel with Accountability, Professionalism and Integrity.

Things to Keep in Mind

Texas does not require you to have a license to be in construction.

This means that anyone with a truck and a few tools can start building weight-bearing structures on your home.

There is an alarming rate of construction companies that are building structures that will cause damage to individuals and devalue the home. Instead of adding value to the home as your project should.

The construction industry is the second most common source of the Better Business Bureau complaints.

There is another major issue with virtually every home improvement company out there.

Workmen's Comp. Insurance

If someone gets hurt, maimed or killed on your project at your home, you could be held liable for the loss of income for an individuals medical and personal damages.

At All-Tex, we eliminate those issues by providing workman comp Insurance. To our knowledge we're the only company that does this.

These are just a few of the important issues that you're completely shielded from when you go it will All-Tex Home Improvement Services.

There is a reason why we've served well over 25,000 happy clients. And have been in business for as long as we have.

We love our new patio installed by All-Tex Exteriors. The crew worked very hard to get the job done on time, even in rainy weather. Once it was done, they immediately came back to address a few touch up items I requested. I would definitely recommend this company to my friends and family and would use them again.

All-Tex did an excellent job on a large project, which consisted of a Patio cover, stamped concrete, pergola and new windows. All construction projects have challenges and changes weather delays etc. etc. During this process I emailed or phoned Aleck Miller over 40 times. His quick responses and followup where like clockwork and is the mark of a true professional. As we are fairly new to the area we did obtain multiple bids and the All-Tex bids were also the best for comparable work. On our next project we will save a lot of time because I will be only be calling Aleck.

Over the last two decades of being in business we've developed systems and strategies to create predictable outcomes.

Here's a quick list of the type of homeowners that we can help serve the best:

  • If you're looking to eliminate as much risk as possible and ensure a level of quality and professionalism when having work performed on your home.
  • If you're looking for the best value for your money rather than JUST the cheapest price.
  • If having all the proper coverages that virtually eliminate your liability is important to you.
  • If you're looking for a project that will add value to your home rather than detract from it
  • If you're looking for a construction company that is ran more like a corporate business instead of an disorganized contractor.
  • If you are looking for professionalism and accountability.
  • If you are looking for someone that cannot only help visualize your dreams but can also manage the construction process and keep you in the loop of communication along the way

Here's a quick list of the type of homeowners we cannot help:

  • If you were looking for the absolute cheapest price and quality does not matter
  • If you were looking to flip your house and you want to do cheap patchwork that does not meet the ethical standards of construction.

I recently had my first experience with All-Tex. I hired them to enclose a small patio on the back side of my home. Overall, it was a very positive experience. I was a little fuzzy about the details of the project. I had a few specifications; but, needed some help with the details. The sales rep provided good suggestions and helped with the details. The quote was not cheap; but, was reasonable for quality work. The construction team had to deal with some weather issues; so, scheduling was a little challenging. In spite of that, the project was completed in a very satisfactory amount of time. The construction team had all the skills required to complete the job from start to finish. All-Tex even handled the electrical work we needed. We really like the new sunroom and have plans to use All-Tex again in the future. Based on our experience we highly recommend them.
