Outdoor living in Phoenix, Arizona is a lifestyle.
While outdoor cooking and outdoor entertaining go hand in hand, having the perfect environment to do so can be a challenge. JM Contracting has many years of experience in designing and building outdoor kitchen areas in Phoenix, AZ. From a basic barbecue island with grill, to a fully functional outdoor kitchen, JM Contracting is your design-build company for outdoor living in Arizona! The days of just rolling your grill back to your patio are over. Outdoor living has taken over, and the center feature of this trend is a well-designed outdoor kitchen. Our designs are functional enough for everyday use, but savvy enough to show off at your next backyard party. Outdoor kitchens range from super-practical to super-chic. You might wish for your outdoor kitchen or patio seating area to be sheltered from the heat of the sun beneath a solid roof with thick walls yet open to catch every breeze. Large covered porches make the perfect starting point for full featured outdoor rooms. Working with JM Contracting makes it possible to renovate or extend the structure, and also adding one from the ground up.
Quality Design and Construction
All of our Arizona outdoor kitchens start with a solid concrete footer with a ½” rebar grid (@ 12” on center). This creates a solid foundation for which to build the structure. Next, the block base is built, using our skilled masons. Finally, the entire structure is filled with rebar and solid grout to secure the corners and top block (bond beam) – creating the best possible base.
The base is typically coated with a stucco texture to match or complement the house, or finished off with a variety of options, which may include veneer stone or tile. Our counter top options include, tile, flagstone, granite slab, decorative concrete and more. We can procure a full line of grills and accessories to finish off the look of your outdoor kitchen. Popular items are stainless steel grills, stainless access doors, stainless sink, stainless drawers, stainless barbecue light and stainless side burners. Although stainless is the go-to finish on outdoor kitchens, other options are of course available.
Exceptional outdoor living spaces offer so much.
The Sonoran desert lifestyle is perfect for outdoor living spaces and open air outdoor rooms. In the summer, courtyards in Scottsdale, Phoenix or Glendale, AZ are a bonus, especially if shade is provided by ramadas or pergolas and large trees. Many designs feature seclusion that is enhanced by cooling flagstone or paving stone floors, lush flowering plants and a water feature such as an outdoor fountain. These are spaces that one is always drawn to experience.
