Project Profile: Old Barn Made New with Metal Roofing and Siding

Sometimes a building can stand out for all the wrong reasons. Some buildings are a little old looking, some buildings are falling apart and need to be torn down. And sometimes, a building is just a little dated and needs some attention and care. It’s tempting in these cases to want to tear down and start again, and sometimes that’s the right call. However, at FS Construction Services we have experienced again and again how refurbishing an older, solid structure, can be a better allocation of funds. There are a number of these types of buildings whose life expectancy can be greatly extended.

This was the case for Tom Marcheski and his team when they recently remodeled an old barn that was by no means dilapidated, but greatly benefited from some work and attention. The old roof and siding were replaced with Fabral’s Strongclad galvanized-steel panels, which not only dramatically improved the look of the barn, it added Class A fire resistance and Class 4 hail impact resistance.

This new covering, on the sides and on the roof, is not only cheaper than a whole new building, it will provide incredible strength and durability for many years to come, breathing new life into an older structure, and providing the perfect solution for a building that’s meant to be a little rugged.

Finally, our team of construction professionals outfitted this newly renovated building with a guttering system. This addition will help to divert any rains away from the building thus helping to keep the floor dry and eliminate standing water around the building.

We understand that agricultural equipment and structures need to be able to endure some hard treatment and even harder weather. From grain systems to steel buildings to metal roofs and even paint that won’t fade, Gateway FS Construction Services can help. 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.

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.
