Outdoor Kitchen Contractors Near Ashburn

Outdoor Kitchen Builders In Your Area

With numerous options to fit into almost any budget, your dreams of building an outdoor kitchen can easily become a reality. Outdoor kitchens take the party outdoors, giving you a space to entertain friends and family in your backyard complete with seating, kitchen islands, refrigerators, built-in grills, and more.

When planning your outdoor kitchen, be sure to keep in mind the following:

  • Flooring - materials such as tile or marble can become slick when wet. Other materials may not be able to resist stains. Be sure to understand the weight of appliances you are installing as well.
  • Location - don't build it too far from your home so people have to walk a good distance to get there. However, don't build it where you grill is too close to your home and areas where kids frequently play or smoke could create a hazardous and unpleasant experience.
  • Comfort features - consider adding features that will keep everyone comfortable no matter the weather conditions. Heat lamps and a fire pit can make an outdoor kitchen comfortable even on chilly days. Misters and overhead fans keep everyone cool. A roof or pergola can help keep moisture out while netting around the eating area can keep away the pests.

Constructing an outdoor kitchen is not a DIY job. From building structures to code to running the electrical and gas lines out to the area, you'll want qualified professionals to help you make your dream a reality.

"We wanted to add a patio to our backyard but really did not have any idea exactly how we wanted it to look. Maeckie spent a lot of time giving us ideas so that we were very secure in what we decided. Maeckie, owner, is very helpful and respectful of customer and their wishes. We have been very pleased with the project and the workmanship. We have added other things that we wanted worked on at our house. The workers have been very agreeable about adding them to the list.to fix. Maeckie, the owner, is onsite and does a lot of the work. I have been very impressed by Maeckie being present all the time as I have had experiences where the site manager is only seen when you sign the contract and when the money is due. This experience of adding a patio has been very positive and gives me courage to do other projects around the house"

"We had to replace our crumbling retaining wall and patio and had been searching for a reliable and experienced service - the lot is steep and the construction site is difficult to access, and of course the old wall had to be demolished and piles and piles of material had to be removed first. Upon researching (and we knew what we were doing and what to look for because of our bad experience with the first wall which taught us a lot), we signed a contract with C. Dod Landscaping - it was the right decision, and if we do something like this again (or any similar project) we would go without any hesitation again with Chuck and his company. Same way, based on our experience and the job done, we highly recommend C. Dod Landscaping to anybody looking for the job done. Here is why: 1. Expertise in building retaining walls, patios and any sorts of hardscape projects. I also want to add that Chuck is a good designer always offering good ideas and designs tailored to a particular situation. He has a very extensive portfolio of projects completed covering a huge variety of solutions. 2. Very competitive costs. This comes from several approaches Chuck uses in his projects - a) good knowledge of the market, b) an effective and efficient design and use of materials where the cost of the project is an important consideration, c) customer oriented approach (see below) and d) good knowledge of available technologies and techniques to do what he does to keep costs lower while delivering quality solutions without compromising on various aspects of the construction. 3. Customer service - in Chuck's world this is the most important thing. He does what customer wants but at the same time he would not hesitate (and it happened) to give you his expert opinion about what he thinks is good or bad for the customer. In his crew there is always an experienced team leader that supervises all daily operations and makes decisions on many minor details. In our case, such person followed the same customer oriented approach fostered by the company ready to communicate, explain and address various details and concerns when we had them. We also had Chuck's cell phone number and on a number of occasions used it (also sending texts with photos if necessary). In most such cases Chuck was available immediately or, if not, was getting back to us quickly. When necessary Chuck was coming promptly to discuss in more details when the supervisor didn't have an authority to make a decision. Finally, I want to add that Chuck does extra things to make sure the construction and its structural elements are solid and withstand the tests of time and elements - his five-year guarantee is a standard in his contracts. We are really impressed with C. Dod Landscaping and Chuck's team and what they did for us (and we are not associated with Chuck in any way - Homeadvisor.com is the place where we learned about his company earlier this year)."
