Project Profile: Preserving History on the Mississippi

Every once in a while, a project comes along that is so exciting and interesting, just getting to work on it feels like a privilege. At FS Construction Services we have occasionally had the pleasure of getting the chance to restore or preserve some history, which is always fun, because those projects carry a little extra meaning. This past year, we had the opportunity to work on a building going on 90 years old, and bring something from the brink of disrepair into something useful and beautiful.

Back in 1930, this barn was built by hand in St. Genevieve, MO, just west of the Mississippi River.

As of April 2018, the structure was still standing, but it was in need of some serious repairs. Rather than demolish the building and start again, our client allowed us to come and perform a complete update, re-covering the entire barn with Fabral’s Grandrib 3 Plus panels. These galvanized-steel panels bring some serious durability with Class A fire resistance, Class 4 impact resistance, and Class 90 uplift rating, in addition to heavy-duty snow load ratings. The total installation covered two buildings, one at 46’ x 18’ x 13’6” and the other at 17’ x 46’ x 8’.

By installing these thicker, metal panels, we have not only been able to preserve this history for the present, but for the future as well. Tom Marcheski and his team had plenty of time to think this over as they rode the ferry over to the jobsite every day. St. Genevieve has the distinction of being the oldest permanent European settlement in Missouri, and now, thanks to a willing client and our expert team, the Hoog barn remains a standing part of that history.

Whether you are in need of updating an old structure or building an entirely new one, please let Gateway FS Construction Services know. 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.

Gateway FS Construction Services Fabral residental roof

Project Profile: A new 4500 Sq. Ft. Metal Roof

At FS Construction Services, we feel like we’re always singing the praises of metal roofs, but for good reason. Metal roofs provide a long-lasting solution to roofing needs, with a longevity, durability, and elegance not found in other roofing solutions. However, making a happy client takes more than just the raw materials, no matter how beneficial those materials can be.

Such was the case, when we had the opportunity to install a brand-new roof for some clients in our hometown. The 4500 sq. ft. project not only included installation, but also removing the original shingles on the home and shed. Our Building and Construction lead, Tom Marcheski, and his team got to work quickly clearing the way for the attractive, forest green Fabral Stand ‘N Seam panels. These stainless-steel panels boast the highest wind uplift resistance of any standing seam panel, as well as a Class 4 impact rating and a Class A fire rating, meaning they will provide decades of unrivaled protection and cover.

As integral as a roof is to any building, they are often easy to overlook until it’s too late. That’s why we’ve partnered with Fabral and their state-of-the-art metal roofs. These roofs don’t rot or erode like standard shingles, and they can last up to 70 years.

Whether it’s a smaller residential project or a large commercial project, our team can outfit your structure with the kind of roof that brings considerable peace of mind. In addition to roofing, our team can also take on siding and painting projects, for agricultural, residential, or commercial needs. If you are in need of a new or updated roof, let Gateway FS Construction Services know. 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.

Whether you have been busy working out in the fields as harvest comes to a close or simply busy with the day-to-day demands of life, in the office or at home, we here at FS Construction Services just wanted to take a quick moment to reflect and say thank you to the many brave men and women who serve our country.

It can be easy on these annual days of remembrance to simply let the time pass by without much thought to the reason we celebrate or remember it in the first place. So this Sunday, November 11th, we hope you’ll take a few moments to think about what it means that all across the country and the world, men and women are willing to give up much of their own personal freedom so that we can have ours. It’s a humbling thought, and one we should strive to bear in mind.

To our friends, neighbors, and clients who have served, and to the countless numbers of those we don’t know, we would like to say, “Thank you.” Your sacrifice has allowed us to do what we love and serve our community in our own small way. If you or someone you’re close to is a veteran, be sure to show your appreciation today.
