Paul and Linda’s Pool Room

Pool Room Finished 1

Once again, thanks be to the home show.  That is exactly where we met Paul and Linda.  Paul approached me with plans in hand.  As I recall, he had attended the show just for the cause of finding a contractor to construct a room for the pool he had purchased.

Finishing the Pool Deck

Saying that it was simply a pool would be putting it mildly.  The pool which arrived in crates (very large crates) at his home, was approximately 8′ x 15′ once constructed and was 5′ deep at its deepest point.  The pool included a motor which generates waves to simulate lap swimming.  A heater was ordered for the unit as well so it could also double as a hot tub.

Paul’s desire was to construct an L-shaped room to house his new pool.  Quinta Contractors, LLC was more than willing to tackle such a project.  Blueprints were finalized and construction began.  The room other than housing the pool, was designed with a small sitting area perpendicular to the placement of the pool.

Paul's Addition

The carpenters at Quinta installed wood lap siding for the interior wall coverings.  The pool was skirted with wood. A deck was constructed on all four sides and topped with a blue-green mosaic tile.  Additional concrete was poured at the room’s exterior to provide a washed gravel patio slab.

 

 

Pool Room at Night

Premium vinyl windows were selected to line both the wall along side the pool and the front which was vaulted, creating one amazing view.  The operable windows were side sliding and the remaining windows including the trapezoids were all fixed windows.   An additional HVAC unit provided the heating and cooling to keep the room comfortable year round. The insulated windows were selected to make the climate control process even easier.  Humidity would be an obvious concern from the heated pool so an evacuation fan was installed with enough CFMs (cubic feet per minute) to quickly exhaust the humidity as needed to keep the room comfortable.

Building Relationships

Building relationships is a major focus of our customer service goals.  We have numerous examples of how a small project completed led to respect and trust from the client for Quinta Contractors, LLC, which in turn encouraged that client to chose us to perform much larger jobs.  A successful remodel requires a consistent, parallelled level of trust between the contractor and the client.

We strive to present the best quality of materials available matched with superior craftsmanship to complete the individual tasks which together make a remodel.  When we undertake a project, we have entered the inner sanctum (if you will) of that client; this is their castle.  We pride ourselves on encouraging each of our folks to treat the home and it’s surroundings with the utmost respect.

We start the process of each major project by interviewing the client(s) to determine their needs and goals. Providing  the client with a reasonable idea as to the feasibility and cost of their desired changes at this stage determines whether or not we move forward.  The next step is returning a budget and a solid scope of work which upon the client’s approval will guide us all in the days to follow.  Keeping the contractor, client(s), and sub-contractors on the same page is essential.  Often times the scope of work dictates that blueprints will be required, especially when an addition is part of the renovation.

We believe that our commitment to customer satisfaction is unparalleled in the industry.  The attitude of flexibility is communicated to all those involved in the process.  The project sometimes lends itself to unscheduled changes at the request of the client, as they see the spaces in their home undergoing the planned transformations.  We are more than willing to accommodate these changes.

We know that the character of the company is revealed as we strive together to bring quick resolutions to each care or concern presented by the client.  Treating you and your home with the due respect is a priority for each of us at Quinta.  You do have a choice in contractors and we trust that by choosing Quinta Contractors, you will be pleased with the service you receive and your completed renovation now and for years to come.
