Project Profile: Nothing Beats the Strength of a Metal Roof

There’s a reason the phrase “roof over my head” is synonymous with the idea of a house or a home. It’s not rocket science to say that a house with no roof isn’t much of a house. Which is good, because we’re not rocket scientists at FS Construction Services. But we are experts in a variety of construction fields, including the installation of attractive, maintenance free metal roofing. We know your roof is fundamental to your home, business or agricultural building and we also know that the thought of getting a roof replaced can bring on a lot of anxiety. Thanks to our partners at Fabral, we are able to alleviate that stress.

Recently, one of our clients was in need of a new roof before the full force of winter settled in. Tom Marcheski, our Building and Construction expert, went to work with his team to ensure that our client had his brand-new roof professionally installed while meeting their budget and timing needs. Now we’ve talked about the benefits of metal roofs before, but it bears repeating. Tom and his team installed Fabral’s Horizon S Series roof onto our client’s house, which is made from 26-gauge high strength steel, has a UL 790 Class A fire resistance rating and UL 2218 Class 4 hail impact resistance.

Essentially what that means is that a Fabral metal roof is strong and will provide your home or structure with safety, security and dependability. Metal roofs are built to last up to 70 years, meaning installing one once guarantees you won’t have to think about it again for a long, long time. Now we know that’s a pretty big commitment, which is why we’re happy to say that Fabral offers a wide variety of roof colors, meaning you can choose the perfect color to suit you for years and years to come.

The long-lasting strength and durability of a metal roof isn’t just meant for residential houses either, but can be used in both commercial and agricultural applications as well. For questions regarding roofing installation or repair, contact the professionals at Gateway FS Construction Services. You can give us a call at 866-551-3454, and let our specialists help you find exactly what you are looking for. We look forward to providing you the best customer service experience.

FS Construction Services Walters Storage Building

Project Profile: 48’ x 56’ Dual-Purpose Building

At FS Construction Services, we understand the necessity of being versatile. In many ways, a willingness to be versatile is what has allowed us to keep growing and serving our community for over 40 years. So we enjoy every chance we get to help someone else find and utilize every ounce of potential and functionality that their new structure or equipment offers.

This was exactly the case when a client wanted to make the most out of their new Walters building. This highly functional structure, which was placed on a pre-existing concrete slab, would not only serve as much needed storage space, but it would also double as the site of our client’s waterjet cutting and metal fabrication business. The 48’ x 56’ x 12’ building’s size and durability will help our client’s business to grow while still providing its function as a storage unit. We also installed a 10’ x 10’ Raynor ShowCase garage door which will allow our client to get plenty of material in and out of the building. Offering more than just size though, the garage door is steel backed and features thick insulation to increase thermal efficiency and prevent drafts and moisture.

This particular project was completed in just 10 days and met all the features and benefits that we emphasize on each of our construction projects. Recently, we got the chance to work with this client again recently when they decided to make modifications and functional updates. These changes allowed us to meet the client’s needs by installing three more 40” x 30” windows on the building, increasing the structure’s overall light intake and further reducing utility costs.

Whether you are looking to build a new building or improve upon an existing structure, let Gateway FS Construction Services know. With both steel and wood buildings for a wide variety of commercial, residential, and agricultural applications, we are happy to help our clients find the best possible building for their needs. You can give us a call at 866-551-3454, and let our specialists help you find exactly what you are looking for. We look forward to providing you the best customer service experience.

Grain storage large bushels

Project Profile: From 0 to 40,000 Bushel Capacity in a Week

At FS Construction Services we know that among the many things a bountiful harvest can bring is the need for more storage space. This was the case recently, with harvest right around the corner, when we were contracted to build a new storage bin. Luckily our team was up to the task, and in exactly one week’s time, our client was up and running with a brand-new grain storage solution.

Nathan Koester, one of our Grain Systems expert, oversaw the construction of the Sukup grain bin. At 42’ in diameter and 9 rings tall, this new structure would provide instant help for the harvest to come with a capacity of 40,000 bushels. Additionally, the grain bin was outfitted with a roof auger, stairs, and an 8” power sweep.

With our team in and out in a week, our client was able to continue preparing for the season to come with the assurance of having all the storage that would be needed. Thanks to our long-lasting partnership with Sukup and our familiarity with their products and equipment, we are able to work quickly and efficiently. This not only guarantees properly set up grain bins and systems, but it also means our clients can get back to their work sooner.

If you are looking to get a jump on the season to come or are in the market for grain drying, grain storage, or grain handling and transfer, let Gateway FS Construction Services know. We work with a number of trusted partners and employ the best in the business. You can give us a call at 866-551-3454, and let our specialists help you find exactly what you are looking for. We look forward to providing you the best customer service experience.
