New Covered Patio Construction

Before covered patio construction Finished Covered Patio with tile roof, paver floor & bar

We recently added a new covered patio to this home in Kendall. The homeowners purchased their pre-construction home in 2012 and wanted to add outdoor space.

The new covered outdoor patio adds an additional 500 sq ft of outdoor entertaining space with paver floors, ceiling fans, a bar & sink. The Dining Room window was converted to Double French Doors, giving access to the covered patio through he Dining Room and Guest Bathroom.

The roof on the covered patio was built to match the pitch of the main structure and covered with the same double roll cement roof tile.

Below are before & photos of the building process for this new covered patio.

Interior & Exterior Remodel

Formed Concrete Driveway

Rausa Builders Corp completed this complete Interior & Exterior Remodel in Southwest Miami. The exterior remodeling included a Formed Concrete Driveway with Interlaced Grass, Travertine Pool Deck, Ledge Stone Columns and some Landscaping.

Inside, Filled & Honed Travertine Tile was installed throughout all Floors and Bathroom Walls giving the home a unified feel. The new floor plan called for an Open Kitchen Design which required removal of previous interior walls enclosing the kitchen. The Master, In-Law and Guest Bathrooms were completely redone with Cultured Marble Vanity Tops, Glass Shower Doors and Travertine Tile on Shower Walls. Bedrooms were fitted with individual Vanity Sinks and Jack & Jill Bathrooms with Tubs and Toilets.

Driveway Installation Process:
Lime Rock Foundation

After preliminary designs & markings meet our client’s satisfaction the sod and dirt is removed from the designated area. The area is then filled and compacted with a thick layer of lime rock which makes the foundation for the driveway pavers.

Concrete Sand for Leveling

The next layer is filled with concrete sand, necessary for leveling and creating a smooth area for the pavers to be installed over.

Finishing Sand & Retaining Wall

Driveway pavers or travertine pavers are installed, compacted and sealed tightly together with a concrete retaining wall. Finishing Sand is then applied over the pavers to fill all gaps between pavers, interlocking them together creating a solid yet flexible driveway surface. This also allows for easy paver replacement should one ever break or crack in the future.

Driveway & Travertine Paver Sealant

Optional but highly recommended is the addition of 2 coats of paver sealant giving the pavers or travertine a mild shine and extra protection.

Complete Remodel With Home Additions

This is a complete remodel with multiple additions to the original structure and roof. We built an addition to the entrance of the home requiring a new roof and decorated support columns, giving the home a complete new look by itself. We also added part of a dettached garage to the homes living space and keeping half of the garage for storage. The addition of the previously detached garage to the home added an additional 900 sq ft of living space. The original concrete floor had to be cut to run new electrical and plumbing to accomodate the interior remodeling design. The home was completed with an all new look and new roof.
