PATIO PARADISE

Covered Patios are a great way to add outdoor living space for you and your family to enjoy!  Whether you are entertaining guests, relaxing by the pool, or sitting in the shade watching your kids play in the backyard, your patio will be much more enjoyable and useful, as it will protect you from the hot summer sun and rainy weather.

Magnolia Patio Covers also provide an outdoor living space that can provide shelter for outdoor furniture and outdoor kitchens, or serve as a weather-friendly outdoor family room – a great place for your family and friends to hang out and enjoy the outdoors, rain or shine!

OUR PROCESS

From start to finish, we handle all of the details!  When your patio project is complete, you will have a brand new patio that can add value to your home!  Here is a step-by-step approach to ensure a smooth project throughout the construction process, resulting in a beautiful and very well-built structure:

We will come out to your house to discuss your ideas and offer a few solutions to achieve your outdoor living-space goals.  You will select your finishes, such as brick or stone columns, tongue and groove ceilings, paint and/or stain colors, light fixtures/ceiling fans, concrete finishes, and address any concerns you may have about the project.  We will also discuss which type of roof system will work well with your home, whether it be an open or closed gable, a hip-style roof, a shed roof, or some combination of all three.

Once we have a clear idea of what the design will look like, we will give you a FREE ESTIMATE for your review.  If you are agreeable to the terms, we will sign a construction agreement and ask you for a copy of your survey of the property that you received when you closed on your home.  We will use this to assist with obtaining approval from your HOA.  If necessary, we will have our in-house designer or a third party architect submit any applicable drawings that the HOA requires to approve your project.  HOA’s typically take a few weeks to get back with us with an approval letter to start construction.

After we receive the approval, we will have a pre-construction meeting with you and the construction manager.  In this meeting we will go over the details of the project to ensure that we are all on the same page before we schedule the start date.  We will discuss scheduling and logistics as well as things like colors, finishes, and selections and then set a date to begin work!

Once we have scheduled a start date, we will order materials and have them delivered to your home and have the framers begin the demolition work, such as removing the eves to expose the framing of your home where we will tie in the structural components of your new patio.  We will also begin digging the structural concrete footings to support the columns and structural beams.  The footings are a dug a few feet underground and we tie in rebar for added strength.  We use 5000-psi concrete, with rebar, to give your structure a solid foundation that meets or exceeds windstorm specifications.

After the electrical is “roughed-in” (all wires are ran and all fixture locations are placed), we start the cover-up phase.  This is when we install the ceilings, which will be a James Hardie fiber cement board ceiling or a tongue-and-groove plank ceiling (painted OR stained).  Once the “cover-up” is completed (all exposed framing is wrapped with the exterior finish), we will have our painting professionals come out and paint the patio to match your existing home, or you can customize your paint colors and paint scheme to whatever fits your style.

When the painting is complete, we move on to the concrete and masonry phase of construction.  This is when we pour the concrete, which you have many options to choose from, such as stamped concrete, stamped overlay, spray deck, stain or broom finish.  If you decided to go with brick or stone columns, once the concrete cures we begin the masonry work.  If there is to be an outdoor kitchen, we begin building it at this time as well.   You have the option of using natural stone, manufactured stone or brick for your columns, OR we can use round columns, decorative columns, or hardie-wrapped columns.  Most of the time we are able to match brick and stone that may already be installed on your house somewhere, or something that complements your existing brick or stone.

Once your patio is built, we will do a final cleanup and inspection of the work and correct any issues we see or any issues the customer wants corrected (if any).  We use strong magnets to sweep through your yard for nails, and haul off all trash and debris.  Then, we will perform a final walk-through with you to ensure that all cosmetic issues are corrected and perform any paint touch-ups that you want done before we turn the project over to you.  After all punch-list items are addressed, we collect final payment and the warranty period begins.  We offer an industry-leading 7 year structural warranty, a two year mechanical warranty, and a one year FULL warranty!  Now all you have to do is move your patio furniture in and begin enjoying your new covered patio!
