James’ New Roof and More

AFTER: New Vinyl Siding, Seamless Aluminum Gutters, and New Roof

James passed one of our vehicles sporting the new Quinta logo and contacted Quinta for a replacement roof.  Upon inspection we discovered damages which eventually lead to James filing an insurance claim and receiving a new roof.  His roof was about 15 years old and was brittle, making repairs difficult if not impossible.

BEFORE: Damaged Masonite siding

James selected an architectural shingle which complimented his brick home nicely.  James’ home needed more attention than just a roof, however.  He purchased the home with the existing siding which was very poorly installed and actually allowed for water to be trapped and grossly accelerated the rotting of his wood cornice work.  The gutters which were supposed to collect the rain water were leaking in multiple areas as the galvanized metal was riddled with rusty holes.

Vinyl Siding Installed After Wood Repairs Were Made

One phone call from a sign on the truck and it was Quinta to the rescue!  Not only, did we help James navigate through his insurance claim, we also provided quality customer service throughout the process.  Quinta Contractors removed the existing 3 tab shingles and replaced them with the new dimensional shingles (now with a Limited Lifetime Warranty).  We then removed the damaged siding paying close attention to make all the necessary wood repairs before install his new new vinyl siding, followed by the new seamless aluminum gutter system.

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.

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.

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.
