Yes, its me again. Obviously, I just found this site today and it is a great source of local information. So here goes my thrid post searching for information....

Good morning. We are moving to SA this summer (281 and Sonterra) into a new house and have to do the typical new house stuff. I would appreciate any recommendations from the experts on these boards:

3) We are looking at putting in a 10 x 15 (roughly) stamped concrete patio off of the back of our house. We would like to put a standard wood arbor/trellis over the stamped concrete patio. Can anyone recommend a local reliable installer that won't cost an arm and a leg?

Thanks for your continued help.

Well, I just did my own patio and walkway last week. Have you considered trying to do it yourself? It's the perfect DIY project. Just go to barnes and noble and get a book on how to create patios (it's really only 2-3 pages of pictures and diagrams for a basic patio). It's quite simple, but will take about 2-3 days if you are working by yourself. If not, then time flies. The hardest part was taking the grass sod out and make a 3-4" depth for laying a base of sand. That was back breaking work doing it all by hand (shovel).

I bought all my materials at home depot (i know, not the cheapest place) and it cost me a total of around $300 to buy all the materials and tools I needed to make a 12' x 8' patio. 90% of the expense was me buying awesome cobble stone looking pavers instead of boring old tile slabs. I don't know if that thelps, but that's an idea of what my expenses were.

Good luck. I have called about 6 different people/businesses listed in the yellow pages last week to have a 23x9 concrete patio poured. Nobody has called me back...

These guys specialize in decorative concrete but you may want to see what they can do. Good Luck.

We hired Creative Concrete after seeing them at a Home and Garden Show at the convention center.
They did a great job. Only draw back was that they didn't take credit cards. Their web site
is creativeconcrete.biz 210-342-7933 Hope that helps.
