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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
