Areas We Serve Friendswood, TX Patio, Deck & Porch Builders

Welcome to Friendly Friendswood!

If ever a city had the perfect name, it’s Friendswood, TX. Friendswood has been a friendly place ever since it was founded in 1895 by the Quakers, also known as Friends. In the beginning, Friendswood offered plenty of farmland for orchards—figs and satsuma oranges—and rice fields. Quakers came from other parts of the country to join this wholesome, hardworking community.

Development started flowing into Friendswood after WWII, and by the 1950s folks from Houston had discovered the warmth and beauty of this wooded area crisscrossed by four creeks. The nearby location of NASA’s Manned Spacecraft Center in 1962 also contributed to Friendswood’s residential and commercial development. Incorporated as a city in 1960, Friendswood has seen substantial growth but has maintained its small-town, neighborly feel.

Today residents of Friendswood enjoy numerous parks and recreation areas, two of the best school districts in Texas and easy access to all of the cultural and sporting events Houston has to offer. The city that once had only religious meetings for Quakers now has churches of every denomination and quite a few non-denominational places of worship, too.

Large Lots Allow Combination Outdoor Living Spaces

Homeowners in Friendswood’s many upscale neighborhoods love their outdoor living spaces. The large lots here give residents plenty of room to expand their enjoyment of outdoor living. Larger lots mean space to accommodate today’s ultra-popular combination outdoor structures. Examples of these deluxe combination spaces include a patio with an outdoor kitchen or deck with adjoining patio, for starters. Who can resist a patio with a fire pit or a covered patio with an outdoor fireplace?

Patios, a Basic Texas Necessity

No Friendswood, Texas, home wants to be without a patio! The variety of patio designs and materials available today can make you dizzy. Let Archadeck of Southwest Houston help you sort through the options because we are Southwest Houston’s patio builder of choice. From popular paver patios to stain and stamp concrete, and natural stone too, we can help you narrow down the selections until you settle on your absolute favorite.

Hardscapes Take a Patio to the Next Level

Good times happen out on a Friendswood patio. Kick it up! Beyond the basic patio, consider adding a seating wall made of the same pavers or perhaps choose a contrasting color or different paver shape. We love a fire pit in the center of a patio because you know everyone will gravitate toward it when darkness arrives. A stone seating wall, maybe in a half-circle cradling the fire pit, will be a crowd favorite. If you love plants nearby, how about expanding the paver patio to include built-in planters for container gardens?

Covered Patios Guarantee Shade

If shade is high on your priority list, Archadeck of Southwest Houston has you covered. We can design the right size patio cover for your outdoor living space. Many homeowners elect to cover a large portion of the patio for shade while leaving a part uncovered for the days you need the warmth of the sun. We can build a free-standing patio cover or tie it into the roof of your home, depending how close your patio is to the house. Today’s covered patios feature room for several seating areas including a dining area, a lounge/ TV area and a bar, too. Stock that bar with a refrigerator and a sink and you’re all set.

Outdoor Kitchens for Friendswood

Why stop with a refrigerator and a sink? Bring the whole kitchen outdoors for the ultimate in outdoor living. Entertaining just got easier and a lot more fun when you add an outdoor kitchen to your paver patio. Let Archadeck of Southwest Houston show you how it’s done in Friendswood. There are so many ways to cook outdoors, from a simple gas or wood grill to the whole ensemble adding a smoker, a griddle and granite or stone countertops for a prep area. If you enjoy an audience while you cook, add bar seating to the back of your outdoor kitchen.

Decks and Pergolas Welcome Here

Let’s not forget the deck! While in Texas we love our patios, our decks are also a favorite with Friendswood homeowners. Will you go for traditional wood? What about low-maintenance composites or synthetic decking for the carefree lifestyle? Ask us about the beauty of tropical hardwoods. No deck is complete without a stylish pergola, whether it’s made of wood, composite, aluminum or vinyl. We can recommend a pergola material based on your decking choice. While pergolas offer partial shade, we can add a cover if you want protection from UV rays and rain.

Archadeck of Southwest Houston is the preferred builder of custom outdoor living structures in the Friendswood area. Whether you are looking to expand your outdoor living space, replace an older deck or patio—or start from scratch—we can work with you to design the outdoor living space of your dreams.
