Trip knew his old aluminum windows were drafty and not energy efficient. He and his wife had also discussed having a larger rear patio and longed for better access to the patio. He contacted Quinta Contractors, LLC after his father-in-law had highly recommended us. The resulting new patio accomplished everything Trip and his wife desired for their outdoor living space.
Trip’s house located in the Memphis area was truly a gathering place for friends and family, but the back yard was lacking usable space to entertain. A new patio door was selected to replace the existing picture window which had a single hung window on either side. In order to install the new 60″ French door with side lights on each side, the old windows were removed as well as the lower portion of the wall.
Once the existing patio slab and walkway were removed, a new, larger washed gravel patio slab was poured. The single entry door was also discarded in favor of a new vinyl double hung window. This required the construction of a partial wall to support the window and brick work to make the transition look seamless.
The new door unit was a maintenance free metal clad door. The glass in the door and side lights were dual paned and insulated to add energy savings. Once the interior and exterior trim was installed, the project looked original to the house.
We were fortunate enough to be able to match the existing brick and this led Trip to ask for a small brick wall to define the edge of the new concrete patio. A contrasting 24″ x 36″ stone was selected and installed atop the wall and provided additional seating. Once again, Quinta Contractors had a happy customer.
Sometimes it’s the minor changes like this project which provide the biggest benefits. Not only does Trip have a more enjoyable outdoor entertaining area, but he certainly improved on the curb appeal of his home as well. At Quinta we believe that our commitment to quality customer service sets us apart from the competition.
