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 New Roof

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.

James and Cathy’s New Roof

James and Cathy Before 1

James and Cathy’s before improvements

James and Cathy had several exterior projects in mind when they contacted Quinta Contractors, LLC.  First and foremost of was the roof.  The shingles showed major signs of age and de-lamination and needed to be replaced soon to avoid any future leaks.  The home had 20 year three tab shingles.  James elected to upgrade to 30 year architectural shingles (also called dimensional shingles).

 The next issue raising concern were the galvanized gutters.  Galvanized gutters are truly a thing of the past.  We removed their existing gutters and down spouts and replaced them with seamless aluminum gutters and down spouts.  The color white was selected to match the final element of this exterior home improvement project: namely, vinyl siding.

Roof has been stripped to the decking

We made the necessary repairs to the fascia, freeze boards, and soffits.  Quinta installers then installed premium vinyl siding to the walls and soffits, followed by vinyl coated aluminum which was custom fabricated on site applied to the fascia and freeze boards.

The new asphalt shingles, vinyl siding, and gutters gave the home a new crisp appearance and increased the home’s overall curb appeal.  The project was done quickly and the site cleaned thoroughly before the last work truck pulled away.  Cathy and James couldn’t have been prouder of the improvements to their home’s exterior.

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.

Tim’s Vinyl Siding

 

Tim's Vinyl Siding 1

Tim’s home was only four years old when he noticed deterioration on the exterior of his home.  The wood was clearly rotting on the cornice work of his house.  The soffit and fascia portions of his trim work had suffered the most damage from rot.

The house had two dormers on the roof which were also suffering from the elements.   The masonite siding which clad the dormers and the gables had begun to decline as well.  Quinta Contractors, LLC presented Tim with a great solution: Premium Vinyl Siding.

Tim's Vinyl Siding 2 (showing insulation)

Vinyl siding can be applied over the existing siding which makes it a quick fix for those homes which struggle to endure the elements due to inferior cladding products installed at original construction.  Quinta supplied and installed a vinyl siding “cover all” which included covering the fascia, soffits, brick freeze boards, porch ceilings, all window and door surrounds, and the walls surfaces at the gables and dormers.  The majority of this home was brick and the addition of the vinyl siding made the home’s exterior maintenence-free.

Quinta Contractors, LLC uses materials backed by limited lifetime warranties whenever possible, and this case was no exception.  Insulation was applied to the walls prior to the vinyl siding in order to seal the home as much as possible.  Tim gained the added benefit of the crisp clean look of the vinyl without any of the furture costs of repairs and painting.

Jack’s Vinyl Siding

Jack’s house was built in 1981 and was clad in masonite siding. As is so often the case, even his best efforts to keep his home’s exterior painted regularly, were not preventing the deterioration to his siding. Removing the existing siding to replace it would have come with a price tag Jack just couldn’t afford.

Quinta Contractors, LLC was able to offer him a solution which did fit right in with his budget. The premium vinyl siding we supplied and installed fit right over his
existing siding. The phrase “cover the wood and make it look good”, proved true yet again.

Jack's Vinyl Siding Rear Elevation Detail

His new vinyl siding came with a limited lifetime warranty from the manufacturer
covering everything from chipping, pealing, to fading. The bright white he
chose for the trim on the fascia and door and window surrounds provided him
just the right contrast to the gray on the walls.

 

The “maintenance free” aspect of the vinyl siding is what really sold him on the idea. Knowing he would not have to drag out the ladders to paint it himself or pay for continual costly repairs, gave him peace of mind. Best yet, his home was transformed into one of the best looking ones on the block!

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”.
