Susan’s Kitchen

Susan was ready for an updated kitchen; she contacted Quinta Contractors, LLC with a list of desires for the new design.  The galley style kitchen of her 1950’s home just did not meet her needs and failed to match the rest of the home’s interior which had been improved throughout the years.  She requested a design be drafted for new cabinets, counter tops, flooring, windows, and wall and floor coverings.

 

 

 

 

 

What emerged from the design process was breath taking in comparison.  The determination was made that removing an interior wall would leave the seemingly small room with a much larger feel.  Color was the next component used to introduce change.  The existing darker wooden colored linoleum and dark green painted cabinets lead to little distinction; the walls had been painted a lighter more neutral color.  The designer elected to swap this palette completely; the new cabinets were finished with a light to medium tone, the ceramic tile floor utilized lighter earth tones, the walls changed to deep rich red lending to burgundy, and the new vinyl replacement windows were white to match the paint on the new trim.

 

Pot and pan drawers below the new five burner cook top was a great addition to the convenience factor.  Storage in the remodeled kitchen was greatly increased by the new pantry integrated into the cabinetry.  Frosted glass doors added some depth to the appearance as well.

Other enhancing features in the cabinetry included open shelving and an appliance garage.  An lazy susan was integrated into the two lower corner cabinets.  A pot filler was set into wall and tile back-splash for the cook top.  Finally the stainless steel appliances, brushed nickel cabinet knobs and pulls, and chrome faucet all accented the gray tones in the solid surface counter tops.

Jack’s Vinyl Siding

Jack’s house was built in 1981 and was clad in masonite siding. As is so often the case, even his best efforts to keep his home’s exterior painted regularly, were not preventing the deterioration to his siding. Removing the existing siding to replace it would have come with a price tag Jack just couldn’t afford.

Quinta Contractors, LLC was able to offer him a solution which did fit right in with his budget. The premium vinyl siding we supplied and installed fit right over his
existing siding. The phrase “cover the wood and make it look good”, proved true yet again.

His new vinyl siding came with a limited lifetime warranty from the manufacturer
covering everything from chipping, pealing, to fading. The bright white he
chose for the trim on the fascia and door and window surrounds provided him
just the right contrast to the gray on the walls.

 

The “maintenance free” aspect of the vinyl siding is what really sold him on the idea. Knowing he would not have to drag out the ladders to paint it himself or pay for continual costly repairs, gave him peace of mind. Best yet, his home was transformed into one of the best looking ones on the block!
