Front Porch Entryway and Backyard Pergola and Patio Transformation in Heath, TX

Archadeck of Northeast Dallas-Southlake rejuvenates this beautiful home front to back!


— Front entryway boasts new Travertine in walnut and noche – so inviting!

When we saw this stately Heath, Texas home, we knew that we wouldn’t have to perform a total tear-down and re-build of their outdoor spaces. We simply saw a beautiful home in need of a few particular updates. This was not so much a story about a diamond in the rough, but more along the lines of polishing up what was already beautiful. For Archadeck of Northeast Dallas-Southlake, it is not always about a total makeover, and this home is a testament to how the right design and materials and quality workmanship can bring outdoor areas up to par.

These Heath, TX homeowners were looking to breathe life back into what had become slightly outdated tile on their front porch entryway. The existing tile was very dark and had a very inorganic feel to it. The grid layout did not play well against the very organic feel of the multi-colored brick façade, and we worked to find a way to complement the saturated colors of the brick and the dark door and windows, without clashing or overpowering either. With that in mind, a combination of walnut and noche Travertine was the chosen medium. The mix of light and medium earth tones is a great way to create a whisper of pattern and movement without becoming too busy. We think you’ll agree that this home now has a warm and inviting front porch entryway.

When sun protection is a question, a custom pergola is always the answer.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a typical Archadeck of NE Dallas-Southlake project if we didn’t include backyard amenities updates, and that we did! As with the front of this classic brick home, the backyard was well-appointed but required resuscitation. We built a stand-out custom cedar pergola, which we stained dark walnut, in perfect contrast with lighter stone elements surrounding it. The pergola boasts standard 8”x 8” posts and beautiful chopped stone columns with flagstone tops. The same materials were used to build the seating wall on the exterior of the pergola, which will not only provide seating but also a bit of privacy. Decorative hardware provides the perfect ornamentation on the rustic-looking cedar. The pergola also has an oversized ceiling fan for maximum airflow on hot days!

Stamp and stain custom patio brings harmony to the entire space.

We didn’t stop with just a pergola and seating wall, though! The home had an extensive aggregate concrete patio, accompanied by a tile patio in the covered areas. We replaced the concrete and extended the patio, all with stamp and stain. In the covered area, we removed the old tile and replaced it with a stamp and stain overlay to match the exterior patio expanse. The stamp was created with Roman Slate texture, with 4’ x 3’ custom cut tile. Each tile section was done by hand, and grinders were used to create the borders. We stained with an interior mix of bone and ivory and outlined the border in walnut stain for contrast.
