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.

Susan’s home had damaged shingles and a couple of leaks had developed, producing stains    on the ceilings of her home.  The two layers of three-tab asphalt shingles were removed and then new architectural shingles were installed after the decking was inspected and the felt paper had been installed.

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 25 year old architectural shingles had aged to the point that it was time to replace the roof.

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.

Paula’s Master Bathroom

Paula and husband Jeff had already used Quinta Contractors, LLC for projects such as vinyl replacement windows and replacing a storm door.  This time the request was a bit larger, gutting the master bathroom and starting the design with a clean slate.  Paula contacted Quinta and requested that Bryan design her new bathroom.

Custom Built-in Cabinets

Custom Built-in Cabinets

The ideas would need to be bold and striking in order to transform the outdated bathroom.  The existing bathroom housed what we in the business refer to as a “cave shower”, a small and dark 3 foot by 3 foot square shower with a fir down which created a lowered ceiling.

Previous Shower

Previous Shower

These showers often become laden with mold and mildew.  The cause of these unwanted guest are two fold: the shower pan (a thick rubberized liner) under the shower floor tile begins to leak and the second problem is the lack of natural light and air ventilation for the shower stall.  The lack of room to move freely in these types showers is also a constant source of frustration for their owners.  Once the shower pan has failed repair is not really an option; replacement is the only fix for a damaged shower pan.

Bryan’s design would require removing a non load bearing wall separating the double vanity area from the bath tub, shower, and commode section.   The floral wallpaper was a constant reminder of days gone by (most of our remodels do not include wallpaper as a part of the design).  The small glossy white floor tiles required an abundance of grout lines.  The bathroom actually was host to a stand alone shower and a bath tub/ shower combo.   Bryan and homeowner, Paula, were in agreement the bathroom lacked adequate storage and had some wasted space that needed to be reclaimed.

 

 

So bring on the creativity, please!

 Once the wall was removed from the foot print or flooring plan, the designer had a new and empty canvass for the design.  Eliminating the stand up shower was a must.  The tub/ shower combo wasn’t needed or useful any longer either.  Bryan created a concept board revealing the new foot print (including a 4 foot by 6 foot shower with frameless glass walls), the new vanity, granite counter tops and shower seat, sink and shower faucets, wall coverings, lighting fixtures, floor and shower floor tile, the addition of crown molding and custom cabinets.  Paula was elated to see the possibilities for her new bath.

After some minor changes to the over all design concept, the demolition began.  Out with the old and in with the new.  Paula’s budget and expectationswere ultimately satisfied with another custom renovation performed by the crews at Quinta Contractors, LLC.  She  was pleased to find herself in a new bathroom which met her needs and definitely provided her a bathroom to be proud of for years to come.
