Cypress Patio Covers, a division of Southern Mills Custom Builders, LLC is a family-owned and operated business since 2009. Husband and wife team David and Wendy Mills have a long history in the community, and have formed many relationships during this time with their clients. Today, Cypress Patio Covers is primarily a referral-driven business – this is a testament to the skills and personal attention David and Wendy pour into their work. By virtue of his tireless work ethic, exceptional customer service and dedication to establishing best practices (setting benchmarks for production, quality and customer service), David has won awards for excellence at all of his employers over his career. As David says:
“Quality and craftsmanship mean everything to me, because the goal of Cypress Patio Covers is to improve the quality of life for those families who place their trust in us.”
It is a very personal decision to select someone to work on your home, so the relationship with a builder can make or break the project. Cypress Patio Covers knows that home improvement is an industry scarred by dishonest and shady characters. Integrity, honor, and a strong work ethic are in short supply, but these values are what sets all the companies under the Southern Mills Custom Builders umbrella apart from the competition. David currently lives in the Cypress area with Wendy and their two children. When not bringing smiles to the faces of homeowners, he stays active coaching youth sports, enjoying family time and exploring the Texas outdoors.
