Paula’s Master Bathroom

Paula and husband Jeff had already used Quinta Contractors, LLC for projects such as vinyl replacement windows and replacing a storm door.  This time the request was a bit larger, gutting the master bathroom and starting the design with a clean slate.  Paula contacted Quinta and requested that Bryan design her new bathroom.

Custom Built-in Cabinets

Custom Built-in Cabinets

The ideas would need to be bold and striking in order to transform the outdated bathroom.  The existing bathroom housed what we in the business refer to as a “cave shower”, a small and dark 3 foot by 3 foot square shower with a fir down which created a lowered ceiling.

Previous Shower

Previous Shower

These showers often become laden with mold and mildew.  The cause of these unwanted guest are two fold: the shower pan (a thick rubberized liner) under the shower floor tile begins to leak and the second problem is the lack of natural light and air ventilation for the shower stall.  The lack of room to move freely in these types showers is also a constant source of frustration for their owners.  Once the shower pan has failed repair is not really an option; replacement is the only fix for a damaged shower pan.

Bryan’s design would require removing a non load bearing wall separating the double vanity area from the bath tub, shower, and commode section.   The floral wallpaper was a constant reminder of days gone by (most of our remodels do not include wallpaper as a part of the design).  The small glossy white floor tiles required an abundance of grout lines.  The bathroom actually was host to a stand alone shower and a bath tub/ shower combo.   Bryan and homeowner, Paula, were in agreement the bathroom lacked adequate storage and had some wasted space that needed to be reclaimed.

 

 

So bring on the creativity, please!

 Once the wall was removed from the foot print or flooring plan, the designer had a new and empty canvass for the design.  Eliminating the stand up shower was a must.  The tub/ shower combo wasn’t needed or useful any longer either.  Bryan created a concept board revealing the new foot print (including a 4 foot by 6 foot shower with frameless glass walls), the new vanity, granite counter tops and shower seat, sink and shower faucets, wall coverings, lighting fixtures, floor and shower floor tile, the addition of crown molding and custom cabinets.  Paula was elated to see the possibilities for her new bath.

After some minor changes to the over all design concept, the demolition began.  Out with the old and in with the new.  Paula’s budget and expectationswere ultimately satisfied with another custom renovation performed by the crews at Quinta Contractors, LLC.  She  was pleased to find herself in a new bathroom which met her needs and definitely provided her a bathroom to be proud of for years to come.

James and Cathy’s New Roof

James and Cathy Before 1

James and Cathy’s before improvements

James and Cathy had several exterior projects in mind when they contacted Quinta Contractors, LLC.  First and foremost of was the roof.  The shingles showed major signs of age and de-lamination and needed to be replaced soon to avoid any future leaks.  The home had 20 year three tab shingles.  James elected to upgrade to 30 year architectural shingles (also called dimensional shingles).

 The next issue raising concern were the galvanized gutters.  Galvanized gutters are truly a thing of the past.  We removed their existing gutters and down spouts and replaced them with seamless aluminum gutters and down spouts.  The color white was selected to match the final element of this exterior home improvement project: namely, vinyl siding.

Roof has been stripped to the decking

We made the necessary repairs to the fascia, freeze boards, and soffits.  Quinta installers then installed premium vinyl siding to the walls and soffits, followed by vinyl coated aluminum which was custom fabricated on site applied to the fascia and freeze boards.

New felt has been applied and shingles are being installed

The new asphalt shingles, vinyl siding, and gutters gave the home a new crisp appearance and increased the home’s overall curb appeal.  The project was done quickly and the site cleaned thoroughly before the last work truck pulled away.  Cathy and James couldn’t have been prouder of the improvements to their home’s exterior.

Nancy’s New Roof

IMG_0010

Nancy had sustained damage to her roof in a recent storm which moved through her neighborhood in North Mississippi.  After seeing many of her neighbors receive new roofs, she contacted our staff here at Quinta Contractors, LLC to request a roof inspection.   Nancy and her husband had been long time clients of Quinta.  A couple of the completed projects included replacement of her master bathroom shower enclosure and new carpeting in her living room.IMG_0086

Upon initial inspection of the roof by a one of our trained roof inspectors, the recommendation was made that Nancy contact her insurance company.  An appointment was then scheduled for Quinta to meet with the insurance adjuster on site.  The approval was made that day for Nancy to receive a new roof paid for by the insurance company.  Nancy’s only expense was the deductible (required by her insurance policy) and a minor upgrade from 3-tab shingles to architectural shingles.

IMG_0089

She couldn’t have been happier with the excellent customer service provided by Quinta.  The roof was installed promptly and professionally.  Yet again, Nancy’s expectations were met by the staff at Quinta Contractors, LLC.

Keith’s Master Bathroom Remodel

Keith had been in his Collierville home for nearly 4 years prior to determining it was time for an overhaul on the master bathroom.  The footprint of his 1987 constructed home remained the same with the exception of an enlarged shower.  The man-made marble bath tub was retained as it was in as new condition and its color was complementary to the newly selected color scheme.  A reduced step was added to the front of the tub in increase the flow of foot traffic in the room.

The original shower was more reminiscent of a darken cave as it lacked any natural light and the dimensions were very diminished.  A failed shower pan was revealed through the constant trace presence of mold that just could not be cleaned away.  These thick rubber pan liners often fail within 10-15 years of construction.

Master Bath After (17) - Copy

The shower valve (or faucet) and sink faucets were upgraded from polished chromed to brushed nickel finish.  A clear glass interior window with brushed nickel frame was added between the larger shower and bath tub.  Framing of this new opening allowed for a channel to be above this window for increased air flow to the shower.  A properly sealed shower can light was installed to increase the lighting.

Cabinets After

An elegant glass door was feature as the entry from the master bedroom to this remodeled master bath room.  The white cabinets offered a strong contrast to the solid surface counter tops which coordinated with the tile flooring.  Over all this project worked to satisfy the needs and desires of the homeowner and Quinta Contractors, LLC gained another well pleased client.
