806 Outdoors offers both residential and light commercial concrete services with an emphasis on precision finish detail and structural integrity. Our services include both traditional and decorative concrete scopes:

TRADITIONAL CONCRETE

Traditional concrete is gray and either concealed or topped with a basic smooth trowel or broom finish. Project types include:

  • Patios and slabs – flat or slightly sloped surfaces that carry low to mid-level loads
  • Driveways – thicker flat or slightly sloped surfaces that carry mid to highly-level loads
  • Sidewalks – narrow, flat or slightly sloped surfaces that carry pedestrian traffic
  • Retaining walls – short vertical walls that restrict and direct soil movement
  • Stem walls – short vertical walls that separate open spaces
  • Concrete removal – saw-cutting and jack hammering that does not compromise the integrity of adjacent structures

DECORATIVE CONCRETE

Decorative concrete requires advanced finishing techniques that can be combined to create exquisite results. Project types include:

  • Stamped patios – provides the durability of concrete with the aesthetic appeal of wood, tile, stone, and other traditional floor patterns
  • Countertops – polished and sealed, concrete countertops are customized to fit countless shapes and special applications
  • Precast objects – benches, tables, and other objects built off site and then assembled after the components have properly cured
  • Integral color – color additives mixed into the wet concrete that provide consistent color throughout (often combined with other finishing techniques)
  • Stains – surface-applied color that provides visual depth and highlights finishing details
  • Sealers – surface-applied compounds that protect against stains and water infiltration
  • Slip-resistant additives – ideal for wet and/or sloped surfaces

Anybody can mix and pour concrete, right? Just add water and make the top smooth? Wrong! Although it may look plain and simple when it’s finished, the critical details of top-quality concrete work lie in what you can’t see. You’ve seen poor attempts: cracked slabs, separated patios, flaking driveways, and leaning retaining walls and chimneys. What do all of these have in common? The answer is poor preparation and bad installation techniques.

Despite the fact that these concrete failures often look like they’re 30 years old, the sad truth is that many of them occur within the first one or two years (and sometimes within a few short months) after they were initially poured. The contractors who install them either don’t understand the importance of proper preparation and installation, or they cut too many corners in order to be the cheapest guy on the market. Whatever the case may be, the old adage “you get what you pay for” is especially true regarding concrete.

806 Outdoors designs, prepares, and installs every concrete job to last a lifetime. We consider the intended use, weather exposure, and working loads the concrete will sustain, and we consult with structural engineers when particularly demanding loads require unique anchoring or reinforcement. The following is a list of standard conditions 806 Outdoors will consider for every concrete project in order to design a structurally sound product:

  • Subgrade conditions – compaction density and temperature of the underlying soil
  • Integral steel reinforcement – type, size, and spacing to provide tension strength
  • Concrete mixture – consistency and compression strength rating
  • Footer design – thickened edges and perimeter/intersecting beams to prevent movement
  • Slab thickness – the ideal thickness provides necessary strength and reduces waste
  • Control/expansion joints – number, location, and size to manage settling movement

These factors must be considered on every concrete job, regardless of size or location. Additional factors come into play depending upon whether the concrete is traditional or decorative.

When it comes to a relaxing landscape, few features compare to the ambiance created by a Fire Pit or Fireplace. An outdoor fire feature is the anchor of true Outdoor Living Area as the inviting flicker of the flame invites guests to gather around to enjoy one another’s company. If you are considering a landscape transformation, you should certainly consider adding a beautiful stone or brick fire feature the design. 806 Outdoors provides turn key design/build construction of fire pits and fireplaces in Amarillo and throughout the Texas Panhandle.

A proper fence provides more than just privacy from alley traffic or nosy neighbors; it also shields your landscaping from harsh Panhandle winds and reduces noise levels from nearby activities. Although many fences appear similar, the true value of a good design is present in the details. Before you select a fence that simply matches your neighbor’s, let 806 Outdoors help you evaluate the many options available!

WOOD FENCES
The High Plains is the windiest region in the nation, which means wood fences in our area should be built to sustain heavy lateral loads. Many contractors underestimate this requirement, but using light gauge posts, anchoring posts too shallow, or spacing them too far apart only results in shortening the lifespan of a project. In contrast, 806 Outdoors designs every fence to be appropriate for its location and builds each one to last a lifetime.

Wood fence types range from simple gothic point pickets to artistic board-on-board designs with decorative trim caps. Regardless of the design, however, we always consider key components such as:

• Materials: wood species, pre- and post-treatments, finishes, etc.
• Fasteners: mounting brackets, exterior screw types, gate hardware, etc.
• Post thickness and anchoring depth based upon loading demands
• Post spacing that balances loading demands with efficient use of pre-cut lumber lengths

In addition to new fence construction, 806 Outdoors also offers staining and sealing services for existing wood fences.

ORNAMENTAL IRON FENCES
Ornamental iron fences are perfect for locations where you want to separate spaces without obstructing your view. If you live on the canyon rim, have a swimming pool, or love how your landscape is complemented by the surrounding area, this type of fence may be exactly what you’re looking for!

Iron fence types include prefabricated modular designs, custom designed welded fabrications, and powder coated models. If you’re considering a decorative fence that provides separation rather than privacy, 806 Outdoors can help you determine which option best suits your needs.

MASONRY AND CONCRETE FENCES
Masonry and concrete fences provide ultimate privacy and security. Built upon a well-stabilized concrete foundation, this fence type is customized to match the architectural details of your home and bestow an upscale, fortified appeal.

Elements of continuous masonry fences are often blended with other fence types to produce unique designs. Stone and brick columns between board-on-board wood sections can create upgraded privacy fences, while concrete or masonry stem walls with ornamental iron can form attractive partitions that enhance surrounding landscapes.

GATES
Regardless of its type, any fence can be undone by a bad gate! 806 Outdoors builds every gate as a sturdy door that opens easily and closes with a solid latch. We position and orient your gates to best fit your entry/exit patterns, and we use top-quality hardware to ensure long lasting and smooth operation.

A well-built fence is an investment into your property that increases the value and curb appeal of your home. For a free consultation and estimate regarding your fence project, click here.
