Summer is on the Way

Summer is fast approaching with graduations and kids getting out for the summer.  Travel plans are in the works.   Even with high gas prices, we still can’t wait to hit the road and visit family and friends.  A weekend at the lake is often just the getaway we need to relax and enjoy the summer.

Weekend at the Lake

This time of year is often the busiest time for Home Repair and Improvements; we see a large influx of calls for all types of projects as soon as school lets out.  Whether it is a new kitchen remodel, outside painting, a new roof, you name it and Quinta is always your best call.  Our professionals install and refinish hardwood floors, lay carpet and tile, and will help you choose the best floor coverings to fit your style and needs.

Your Home, Your Style

Downstairs Bathroom

Options, options, options… that is one thing that takes a little time to sort through when you select Quinta Contractors, LLC as your contractor.  Think about though, isn’t that one of the most important aspects of choosing a contractor?  You want someone who will listen to your needs and desires and make plans and take appropriate     action(s) to ensure you are satisfied.  That is what we do: we listen to you.  We know that it is your home and your style.

 

 

Upstairs Bathroom

 

 

We constantly strive to remind ourselves and those who we are fortunate enough to work with that it is your home that we have been entrusted to improve and/or repair, and that fact demands respect.  We focus on our folks staying as organized as possible as we embark on a project at your home.  At Quinta, we intend to keep the job site free of debris and clean.

Style: what is your style?  When I meet with home owners for the initial consultation on a bathroom or kitchen remodel or to discuss an addition or attic conversion, I pose questions to generate answers defining your style.  I am careful to consider your specific use of the space to be added or improved.  I want to bring as many options to the table as necessary to support your intended function and schemes in home decor.

You may have a flair for a modern or contemporary look.  You may have a strong affinity for more traditional furnishings.  Paying heed to these details, ensures that your style is carried throughout the scope of the new project.  We can select wall coverings that accent your personal preferences.  The bottom-line is that your complete satisfaction is integral to our customer service goals.

Carport Conversions

Carport Before Conversion

A carport is great for sheltering your vehicles from the sun throughout most of the day, however it may leave you and your vehicles susceptible to more than just morning or evening sun exposure.  Most new construction homes this day and time include at least a double garage, but some older homes only have a carport.  Converting an existing carport to an enclosed garage is an affordable way to upgrade your home’s value.

Enclosed garages offer more than shelter from the sun.  They provide ample protection from wind, rain, and snow as well.  Enhanced security is also an advantage from a garage vs. a carport.  Quinta Contractors, LLC makes the conversion process simple while remaining flexible to meet the needs of the homeowner.  Some clients would prefer to have open stud or exposed framing, while others desire to have the interior walls and ceiling finished with sheetrock.  Our carpenters, framers, and sheetrockers are professionals who understand the value of providing quality service for each project we undertake.

Garage After Conversion

 

The pictures attached with this article depict the before and after of one such conversion performed by Quinta.  The cost of the remodel can at least in part be offset by the increased value added to your home.  The safety and security can prove to be priceless.

Vinyl Siding

Board and Batten Vinyl Siding 2

Manufactured primarily with polyvinyl chloride (PVC), the product has unparalleled impact resistance, rigidity and strength.  A wide array of color options are available to suit the home owners taste.  Styles range from the traditional horizontal lap and vertical panels to the newer decorative panels such as hand split shake and half round options.  Most manufacturers have limited lifetime warranties on the products protecting against cracking, fading, chipping, etc.

Rotten Masonite Siding

Vinyl siding offers a great way to “cover the wood and make it look good”, a common catch phrase within the industry.  After all, maintenance free is a dominate benefit when it comes to your home’s exterior.   While the material cost of painting is minimal, the labor cost of painting and the labor and materials cost for repairs increase year after year.

So, with no-cost estimates isn’t it time you called Quinta Contractors today for an appointment.  We can aid you in selecting a style and color that fits your home best.  Whether you plan on selling soon or remaining in your home for years to come the worry-free nature of vinyl siding will keep the house looking great for years to come.

Fencing

 

Fence with Wrought Iron Gates

 

Fencing? Yes, we certainly do!  Most any kind of fencing.

Quinta Contractors, LLC repairs and installs vinyl, wood privacy, chain link, wrought iron, even split rail wood fencing if that suits your needs more.

Split Rail Fence

 

There are many options in  each of the above named categories of fence and we gladly provide the same level of customer service with every job we undertake.  Wood privacy fencing is perhaps most common in a neighborhood setting and as with wood   decks, they often get neglected in the maintenance department.  The pickets, posts, and stringers can be pressure washed and treated with deck stain to prolong the life of the wood.
