Trip’s New Patio

Trip’s Patio Before

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 New Patio Doors

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.

Kitchen Island Makeover

New Island Makeover

Becky and Michael called from Desoto County looking to upgrade the island high-top bar in their Memphis Area home.  The existing outer wall was covered with sheet-rock.  Metal corbels were being used to hold the edge of the counter top and the gray from the living room wall was carried over to the bar wall color.

Quinta Contractors, LLC was able to transform the look of the island in keeping with the home’s existing decor.  Bead board was installed in between newly constructed wood columns.  Trim applied to the columns added a little more detail to the project.

Island Bar During Remodel

Trim for the base and cap of the remodeled wall matched the existing window and door trim in the home’s interior.  Once primed the new wood was painted with a semi-gloss paint matching the trim color of the rest of the kitchen and living room.  Quinta Contractors provided Becky and Michael with a remodel they could be proud of and display to their friends and family.
