Insulated Patio Cover

This Nashville couple was looking for way to reclaim the use of their rear exterior patio from the sun, wind, and rain.  The best answer was to supply and install an aluminum patio cover.  An insulated cover was selected by the home owners to reduce heat during the   summer and to make it easier to add a wall system later.

The beauty of the insulated cover is that it does easily allow for the screen wall system with kick plates to be added post construction.  The insulated cover also allows for electrical wiring to be run in the pre-made channels for the installation of ceiling fans and lights.  These covers by themselves do an excellent job of reducing heat transfer to the patio area and provide excellent shelter from the wind and rain.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Preparation is essential for a good install of the roof system.  The existing rain gutters need to be removed prior to installation of the high-quality structural aluminum cover and reinstalled once they are custom fabricated to fit to the new patio cover.  These covers are designed to never rust, warp, crack, rot or become damaged by insects.

Ice Dams

photoWell, no doubt you have had your fill of the snow and ice this winter.  The Memphis and Nashville areas have had several good doses of the wintery mix.  Forecasters say more snow and ice may be in store soon.

One commonly overlooked aspect of snowy weather is ice dams.  Ice dams occur on sloping roofs which get laden with snow.  The snow will begin the melting process but not come to completion before the temperature falls again and the water freezes in place on the roof.  This causes the ice to accumulate on the roof slope forming a dam.  The bigger problem occurs as new snow melt occurs and the ice prevents the normal shedding of water off the roof.

Shingles are great at shedding water under normal circumstances.  The nature of shingles being installed in a bottom to top of the slope in an overlapping fashion, allows for water to roll right down the slope; it’s like water off a duck’s back, literally.  Let one of these ice dams set up on your roof and then the water can be allowed to backup and flow under the shingle edge and potentially flow over the wood roof decking and create a place of intrusion into your home’s interior.

Quinta Contractors, LLC currently uses Ice and Water Shield in all roof valleys and around trouble areas such as a chimney.  Additionally, we install 15# felt underlayment over all roof decking before we install the first shingle of a replacement roof.  There are several other options for preventing the damage caused by ice dams, but typically our region of the country does not have issues with prolonged and heavy snow loads on roofs and most roofs in the Memphis and Nashville areas have a sufficient roof pitch (or roof slope) to avoid this excess build up of ice.

Whether you do experience suspected damage caused by an ice dam this winter or storm damage to your roof, call Quinta.  Your roof is one of the most important components protecting you and your home from the outside elements.  Quinta offers roof repairs and replacement roofing services to our clients in Memphis, Cordova, Germantown, Collierville, Bartlett, Eads, Southaven, Olive Branch, Hernando, Nesbit, and Horn Lake in the Greater Memphis Area and Brentwood, Franklin, Nashville, Spring Hill, and Hermitage in the Greater Nashville Area.

Kim’s New Roof

Kim was preparing to place her home in Franklin, TN on the market and knew it was just time for the roof to be replaced.  Her shingles had been installed some 25 years ago or so and showed real signs of aging and deterioration.  No doubt that a newly installed roof would inspire a perspective buyer for her home.

The 25 year old architectural shingles had aged to the point it was to replace.

The new shingles were delivered and one of Quinta’s fine crews began the work of removing the existing single layer of shingles.  Once the roof decking had been inspected, it was determined that two sheets worth of plywood decking would be needed to bring the decking up to snuff.  Decking which has become rotten due to roof leaks must be replaced in order for the nails in the new shingles to hold the shingle in place.

Felt paper has been applied to decking and shingles have been placed on the roof for the new install.

The new architectural shingles are backed by a manufacture’s limited life time warranty!  This new roof will have a long life span to offer the new owner of this home.  Kim chose a color of the roofing which complements the mostly brick exterior of her house.
