Builder was responsive. Builder presented options and alternatives, took time to adjust design before building. Came back to repair and correct problems after initial build was complete.

Description of Work
Backyard retreats added a single story cedar covered patio with gabled roof to the back of the house.

The process with Bill was very smooth. He handled getting all permits and HOA approval. His crew worked very fast, although we had a few weather delays. The electrical crew was amazing and worked with us to install switches that we wanted in 2 different rooms and even hung our fans and programmed them for us. When we informed Bill that we had an upcoming party he quickly worked to finish the job so we could have it in time. The crew cleaned up everything and were very professional. We had quotes from 3 other companies and Backyard Retreats was in the middle but they were the only ones that stained the ceiling and did not have to have a support pole in the middle of the patio. So in our view he was by far the best price with the highest quality. The quality of their work for the price we paid is why we highly recommend them. Every person that worked on our patio was very professional and knowledgeable and when we decide to add an outdoor kitchen we will be calling Bill and his crew back out.

Description of Work
Demoed existing concrete pad, repoured larger concrete patio, built roof with 23' engineered beam (to avoid having a support pole in the middle), installed pine ceiling and stained to our choice, installed electrical for outdoor TV, 2 fans and 4 can lights (also provided LED can lights for us so we didn't have to purchase them), removed and re-bricked where existing lantern lights were.

Backyard Retreats is a great company. I had a hard time finding a company that wanted to work with me because I couldn't spend $15,000 to $20,000. Bill came to my home and gave me an estimate and worked within my price range at no cost to me. He is very professional and kept me updated every step of the way. The entire process from start to finish for my backyard kitchen was about 4 months. It took time due to my home owner's association and city permits. All of the workers were always very professional and friendly. They always introduced themselves and explained what they were going to do that day. My outdoor kitchen is amazing. I use it every day! I couldn't be happier! You will not be disappointed if you choose this contractor!

Description of Work
We were looking to build a patio floor with flag stone and gravel, I called Backyard Retreats because it was in Angies list and in the Pearland magazine. Mr. Bill Salazar of Backyard Retreats came to our home to take measurements, our patio is about 442 sq ft. It also needed some relocation of a portion of the existing sprinkler system. After he spoke with me and my husband on the phone, he said he would send me an estimate via e-mail by the next day, August 10 -2011. I did not receive it so I called him and ask if he had it . He said there were others in from of mine , he also said I would get it by the next day, August 11, 2011. Today is AUGUST 22 -2011 AND NO ONE HAS CALLED OR SENT ANY THING . I WILL NEVER CALL THIS COMPANY FOR ANY THING ELSE EVER ,THAT TELLS ME THE KIND OF COMPANY THEY ARE . IF THEY DO NOT WANT THE JOB THEY CAN SAY SO BUT NOT KEEP TELLING PEOPLE TOMORROW , TOMORROW .ETC.

Member, I must admit, I was very surprised when I read your compliant, as your estimate was sent the very next day we had met. I regret that you did not receive it. Being a consumer myself, I know how important it is to give estimates in a timely manner. I met with you on Tuesday, August 9, 2011 and as promised, your estimate was sent the next day (via e-mail) Wednesday, August 10, 2011. It was sent to the email address you wrote on the tentative drawing. (I must also note, that I did not receive a notice that it was “undeliverable” ) However, one of the letters/numbers could have been transposed or mistaken for another letter/number. Nevertheless, we are very sorry to hear for whatever reason you did not receive the email. We wish you all the best for your project.



We were very impressed with Don from the start. He came to our house (in the evening, after we got home from work) for a free estimate/consultation. He was patient with us while we looked through his numerous samples to pick the pattern and colors. He made a separate trip to leave us samples of the possible colors. He called to say they had another color we might like and made yet another trip to drop off the new sample. He kept us up-to-date on expected arrival of the pavers. Work was done very quickly. Meticulous and diligent crew. One paver wasn't perfectly flat, so they busted it out, rearranged the sand underneath and replaced with new paver. Final product is very nice, very professional. Excellent crew clean-up - no trash or remnants at all. Don was easy to work with and always returned our calls. Fair price for the quality of the product.

Description of Work
We had a 20' x 12' paver patio built by Backyard Retreats.
