I need some recommendations for someone who can turn my little back porch (just a small slab) into a nice, covered patio. Any experience on this? Thanks.
In Westcreek, go down Military Drive W to just before the third stop sign at Westcreek Oaks. Look to your right and you'll see a two-story gray/white brick house that has a covered patio that matches nicely with the house. The house would be on Crossing Oaks in "The Pointe." You could check with them as the patio was done less than 2 years ago.

I looked into that last year and did not have much luck finding anyone I would trust, plus the cost was quite a bit higher than I originally thought. One thing to keep in mind is access to your back yard. If the truck can get to it by taking down the back fence it won't be bad. If you don't have that kind of set up, having guys haul it by wheelbarrow significantly increases the price. This will make a lot of sense when you realize just how much cement it takes to make a patio..It was quite a bit more than I had first thought and you also have to pay for the rebar and other things I can't remember about. The other reason I didn't get it was because nobody knew anything about colored cement and stamping and those were two things I absolutely wanted. Quite a few said they would figure it out and I said no thanks..

I know a person, that does cement, he did my mom's backyard, and I think the price was reasonable, his name is Jorge, PM me if you want his phone number.

I've posted these folks before and I still would recommend them. A neighbor of mine called recently and I think he was about a week to 10 days out to come give her a quote because he's pretty busy. But he and his wife are the nicest people I've dealt with as far as construction goes. Give 'em a call---it doesn't cost anything to get a quote. Moderator cut: contact info

Will definitely have to go the wheelbarrow route but had already thought of that. I have a friend whose husband does the colored cement/stamping. I have no personal experience with his work but know he has a website -- if you're interested I can get the info. Thanks for the input.

Talking Experience w/new dentists around Potranco/1604?

Now that this side of town is getting built up with resources, it doesn't make sense to go x-town for services that are in the 'hood now. Does anyone have experience with any of the new dental clinics that have opened around Potranco/1604? I'd appreciate recommendations!

Feel free to reply here, or DM me.

Thanks!
