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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

These clients can look forward to many years of maintenance free enjoyment of their new patio cover.  Whether you live in Middle or West Tennessee, Quinta is ready to serve your remodeling needs.  We cover Memphis, Bartlett, Eads, Collierville, Southaven, Hernando, and Nesbit to the west and Columbia, Spring Hill, Thompson Station, Franklin, Brentwood, Nashville, and Hermitage to the east.  Our services include kitchen and bathroom remodeling, roofing, vinyl siding, vinyl replacement windows, shutters, gutters, and yes, even patio covers.

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.

Mrs. Patterson’s New Roof

Completing the new roof installation.

 

Mrs. Patterson’s roof had suffered significant wind damage and many shingles were littered across the yard.  Quinta Contractors, LLC recommended she contact her insurance provider which in turn lead to a meeting between our salesman and the insurance adjuster.  Both agreed that the homeowner’s roof was beyond repair.

 

Roof Before: Previously damaged and missing shingles caused by wind damage

 

The insurance adjuster mailed the Scope of Claim along with the check minus the deductible.  Upon completion of the new roof install, the insurance company provided a second check for the balance less the deductible.  Coupled with a rebate from Quinta, Mrs. Patterson received a FREE roof.  She also benefited from a FREE upgrade program from a 20 year shingle to a 30 year architectural shingle.

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.

Hail Damage

Spring has arrived and brought with it a fair share of storms with strong winds and damaging hail.  These winds and hail are capable of devastating your home and property.  The shingles on your roof are the most susceptible to hail and strong winds.  Quinta Contractors, LLC stands ready to re-roof, rebuild, and restore your home.

Hail in hand

 

 

Should you find yourself as a victim of one of these storms, you should contact your insurance company to open a claim.  The insurance company will assign an adjuster who will provide you with a scope of claim.   The repairs to your home within these claims must be handled by a licensed contractor.  Home owners filing a claim for the first time often find the language such as deductible and depreciation as used in the insurance papers to be very confusing.  We have professionals trained to review your paperwork.  We do work with all insurance companies.

Quinta Contractors will communicate on your behalf with your insurance company to insure that your claim is properly adjusted.  Basically, we are in your corner to make sure that the repairs are done properly and that your deductible is the most you have to pay.  Often times our rebate programs can keep your out of pocket expense at $0.00.

Roofing contractors will flood our area from out of town and provide sloppy work at best. Quinta remains locally owned and operated and has served the Mid-South for over 12 years.  You can be assured that we are truly Your best choice for home repairs and improvements.
