Sue’s New Windows

Sue's Windows 1

Sue’s wood windows had become a real problem.  The winters proved to be cool even inside the house if you found yourself near a window.  The upper sash (movable panels) had started to sag and were failing to properly close on two of the upstairs windows.

 

 

Wood Grain Laminated Interior - Double Hung

 

Her home had 14 original wood windows.  The house was now twenty four years old and these drafty windows had to go.  She was impressed with our line of Vinyl Replacement Windows which offered a wood grain laminated interior finish.  This was truly paramount in her decision making as four of her windows were trimmed with stained wood as opposed to the others merely being painted.

Once each set of wood sashes and frames were removed a new Vinyl Replacement Window was  installed in its place.  These new replacement windows were installed from the exterior so that the interior trim remained intact and undisturbed.  The windows were then sealed and wrapped with vinyl coated aluminum on the outside.  A thin coat of caulk was the only interior change.  The exterior color was our standard white as was the interior of the remaining ten windows.

Our Vinyl Replacement Windows come standard with a LowE (Low emissivity – actually low thermal emissivity – is a quality of a surface that radiates, or emits, low levels of radiant thermal (heat) energy) treatment applied to the inside of the outside pane of glass in each sash and Argon (an inert gas, five times more dense than the air we breath) gas for insulation.  These windows offer a limited lifetime warranty.  Call us today for your FREE window assessment.

Siding in Southaven

House with masonite siding- before

Quinta Contractors, LLC, is licensed in both Tennessee and Mississippi.  We offer all types of home improvements including Premium Vinyl Siding.  The pictures are from a job we did in the Stonehedge subdivision located in Southaven, MS back in 2004.

House prior to vinyl siding

 

This home had masonite siding applied during new construction.  The existing panel was a smooth 8″ lap with a small bead at the base of each panel.  The look was nice and very distinctive, however as is the case with masonite siding in humid climates- the siding was rotting away right in front of the homeowners eyes.  Year by year they had watched the deterioration increase, since a few years after its construction in 1987.

Vinyl siding was a great solution for this couple.  As in most cases, we applied insulation board directly over the existing siding (You see there is really no reason to remove the existing siding as the rot will cease at the point at which we cover it with the vinyl.  When large scale rot is encountered we simply cut out the bad area and replace with plywood- so as to have an adequate surface to nail the new siding.).  The color they chose for the vinyl siding was Lien for both walls and sofits as their color.  The matching vinyl soffit material we installed had a hidden vent panel which provides a consistent look on all soffits and overhangs; this soffit panel eliminated the look of solid panels being followed by a vented panel every 5 or 6 feet which had been so common in the industry.

We wrapped the window and door opening with wood grain vinyl coated aluminum to match the wood grain appearance of the vinyl dutch-lap panels applied to the walls.   When all the trim was added, the nice, crisp lines of the siding and soffit offered a fresh, clean look to the house.  The homeowners were proud of the investment made to improve the aesthetic appeal of the house which offered them the added assurance of being “maintenance free”.
