Kitchen Cabinets

Jo Ann's Kitchen (3)

Is your kitchen looking a little dated to you?  Are you tired of the flaws in your builder’s grade cabinets or have you grown weary of replacing the failing hinges and hardware? Perhaps you believe there just has to be a more functional layout for your kitchen.  These are all standard reasons given by our clients during the initial interview regarding the remodeling of their kitchen.

 

So, lets focus on one element of the kitchen, granted a big one, kitchen cabinets.  All to often home owners find that the cabinets selected by their home’s builder are just not satisfactory.  The cabinet industry has made many improvements in the last decade or decades (depending on the age of your home).  We now can include options like roll out shelves and drawer units which are large enough for pots and pans, talk about getting organized!

We have the ability now, to add matching end panels whether you choose full over lay or half overlay doors and drawers.  Accent lighting can be integral to the cabinets and even be used behind glass to draw attention to your individual decor.  There are spice racks and appliance garages which can be included in the design.  Wine racks and plate racks are great as accents to your new cabinetry.

Okay, envisioning a remodeled kitchen is enticing, but where do you begin?  Contacting Quinta Contractors, LLC for an appointment is your best starting place.  We will schedule a time to meet with you (and your spouse) in order to gain critical input for the design of your new kitchen.  The initial consultation takes one to two hours in order for us to gain a proper scope of the work to be completed.

You know you want it; you just need a plan.  The benefits of using a design/ build firm, such as Quinta Contractors, LLC, to provide remodeling services allows you to entrust the process to qualified professionals.  The secondary meeting is comprised of providing you with a detailed scope of work, 3-D rendering of the new layout for your cabinets, and an estimated cost for the project.  You will have a choice in the species and finish that will adorn your new kitchen cabinets.  The functioning side of the cabinet design also allows you an abundance of options and we will guide you through the process from start to completion.

Quinta installs each set of cabinets with great concern for the details.   After all, the finished appearance of your cabinets will be the cornerstone of your kitchen’s appeal to you, your family, and your friends.  The upgraded quality will prove to enhance the future selling features of your home.  Why delay, when you could be enjoying the new features and benefits of a remodeled kitchen today.  Give us a call and we will make your dream kitchen a reality!

Kitchen Island Makeover

New Island Makeover

Becky and Michael called from Desoto County looking to upgrade the island high-top bar in their Memphis Area home.  The existing outer wall was covered with sheet-rock.  Metal corbels were being used to hold the edge of the counter top and the gray from the living room wall was carried over to the bar wall color.

Island before

 

 

Island Before 2

Quinta Contractors, LLC was able to transform the look of the island in keeping with the home’s existing decor.  Bead board was installed in between newly constructed wood columns.  Trim applied to the columns added a little more detail to the project.

Island Bar During Remodel

Trim for the base and cap of the remodeled wall matched the existing window and door trim in the home’s interior.  Once primed the new wood was painted with a semi-gloss paint matching the trim color of the rest of the kitchen and living room.  Quinta Contractors provided Becky and Michael with a remodel they could be proud of and display to their friends and family.

Custom Bookcases and Fireplace Surround

Yes, we do custom carpentry!  The pictures displays some work done in Brandon’s own personal home.  This project includes open shelving and lower doors with one set of upper doors.  The shelving is completely adjustable to accommodate changing decor.

Obviously (from the picture above), displaying photos is paramount to Brandon and his family.  The 12″ deep upper shelving provides ample space for pictures and knick knacks alike.  Keeping games and puzzles organized and most importantly out of sight is also important.  The kids know right where to find their favorite things but the parents are quick to point out that, “everything has its place”.  The half overlay, raised panel door style accents the other trim in the room and surrounding the fireplace and mantel.

The lower left and right portions of this family center are 18″ deep and the center unit projects 22″ into the room.  The white enamel paint provides a very durable finish.  Bead board panels line the rear of the open shelves for a dramatic and classy touch.

Brandon's Fireplace

The fireplace surround boasts of upper and lower square columns rising from floor to ceiling.  The simulated inset panels give a majestic feel to this center piece.  A quick run of base and cap installed above the mantel yields a stunning look contrasted by the mocha colored wall paint applied to the inside remaining drywall.  Let Quinta Contractors, LLC design and fabricate some custom bookcases for you.

Sue’s New Windows

Sue's Windows 1

Sue’s wood windows had become a real problem.  The winters proved to be cool even inside the house if you found yourself near a window.  The upper sash (movable panels) had started to sag and were failing to properly close on two of the upstairs windows.

 

 

Wood Grain Laminated Interior - Double Hung

 

Her home had 14 original wood windows.  The house was now twenty four years old and these drafty windows had to go.  She was impressed with our line of Vinyl Replacement Windows which offered a wood grain laminated interior finish.  This was truly paramount in her decision making as four of her windows were trimmed with stained wood as opposed to the others merely being painted.

 

 

Wood Grain Laminated Interior - Picture Window

 

Once each set of wood sashes and frames were removed a new Vinyl Replacement Window was  installed in its place.  These new replacement windows were installed from the exterior so that the interior trim remained intact and undisturbed.  The windows were then sealed and wrapped with vinyl coated aluminum on the outside.  A thin coat of caulk was the only interior change.  The exterior color was our standard white as was the interior of the remaining ten windows.

 

Sue's New Windows 2

Our Vinyl Replacement Windows come standard with a LowE (Low emissivity – actually low thermal emissivity – is a quality of a surface that radiates, or emits, low levels of radiant thermal (heat) energy) treatment applied to the inside of the outside pane of glass in each sash and Argon (an inert gas, five times more dense than the air we breath) gas for insulation.  These windows offer a limited lifetime warranty.  Call us today for your FREE window assessment.

Tim’s Vinyl Siding

 

Tim's Vinyl Siding 1

Tim’s home was only four years old when he noticed deterioration on the exterior of his home.  The wood was clearly rotting on the cornice work of his house.  The soffit and fascia portions of his trim work had suffered the most damage from rot.

The house had two dormers on the roof which were also suffering from the elements.   The masonite siding which clad the dormers and the gables had begun to decline as well.  Quinta Contractors, LLC presented Tim with a great solution: Premium Vinyl Siding.

Tim's Vinyl Siding 2 (showing insulation)

Vinyl siding can be applied over the existing siding which makes it a quick fix for those homes which struggle to endure the elements due to inferior cladding products installed at original construction.  Quinta supplied and installed a vinyl siding “cover all” which included covering the fascia, soffits, brick freeze boards, porch ceilings, all window and door surrounds, and the walls surfaces at the gables and dormers.  The majority of this home was brick and the addition of the vinyl siding made the home’s exterior maintenence-free.

 

Tim's Fascia, Soffit, and Freeze in New Vinyl Siding

 

Tim's Front Porch Ceiling

Quinta Contractors, LLC uses materials backed by limited lifetime warranties whenever possible, and this case was no exception.  Insulation was applied to the walls prior to the vinyl siding in order to seal the home as much as possible.  Tim gained the added benefit of the crisp clean look of the vinyl without any of the furture costs of repairs and painting.

Randall’s Bathroom

Randall’s Bathroom Before 

Randy (Randall) had an extra bathroom which had suffered from years of neglect. The bathroom plumbing developed a leak and the water was shut off in lieu of a repair at the time. Subsequently this bath became a catch all for storage and the bedroom it was a attached to also saw little use for guests. That was all about to change.

 

 

 

Randall's Bathroom Before 2

Bryan Holloway, President of Quinta Contractors, LLC  met with Randy to redesign the bathroom and make the most of the small 5′ x 10′ full bath. Upon initial inspection of the existing foot print, it was determined that the claw foot bath tub would be discarded in favor of a walk-in shower. A full wall mirror had been used behind the tub in order to give the appearance that the room was larger; this too, would certainly be removed as this would be the new rear wall of the shower.

Randall's Bathroom During

Repairs were made to the damaged plumbing; then the rebuilding began. A pocket door  was selected in order to lessen the disruption to the new bathroom. Ceramic tile was used on the floor and walls alike. The tile was enhanced by a matching tile border used at approximately four feet from the floor. The new shower was built to have a curtain rod extended from a six inch wall on left and right separating the shower from the rest of the bathroom.

Randall's Bathroom After

Randy selected and purchased a free standing vanity which resembled a piece of furniture and had an above mounted wash basin. Polished chrome was used on the light fixture, sink faucet, and shower fixture. Since the existing window would be included in the shower area, a vinyl replacement window with obscure glass was installed in order to keep the room as low maintenance as possible. Crown molding was installed in the entire
bathroom. The room was completed by the installation of a low profile porcelain toilet. Randy was finally proud to invite guests to stay over, again.

Doors and Windows

 

Large Picture Window with Operating Side Casement Windows and Half Round Picture Above: all Vinyl Replacement Windows

Quinta Contractors, LLC installs all types of door and window replacement. Many of our clients prefer the advantages of vinyl replacement windows to wood or metal replacement windows. These windows are dual pane IG (Insulated Glass) units which utilize Argon gas to insulate your home. The LowE film which is applied to the inside of the outer pane of glass also prevents most of the UV rays from entering your home. When saving energy and lowering utility bills becomes a priority- give us a call!

 

Vinyl Replacement Windows

The Vinyl Replacemnt Windows (above) were in installed as part of a larger Kitchen Remodel project in Memphis, TN.  The unit has a working casement window on each end and a fixed picture window in the center.
