FS Construction Services Paint Contractor

Choosing the Right Paint Contractor

When it is done right, there are few things more satisfying than a quality paint job. For a relatively small amount of money, a fresh coat of paint can drastically improve the look of your house, room, barn, etc. Brian Garleb, our Paint Expert here at FS Construction Services, knows this as well as anyone with over 25 years of experience in his role as a certified paint contractor and industrial coatings consultant.
 

Chose the Right Paint Contractor for a High Quality Paint Job

 
Because we do a significant amount of work so close to where we are located, we find it particularly important that we always provide professional, quality services. It doesn’t help our clients and it doesn’t help us if we do a bad job. When you contract us for our paint services, there are a few things we do that we think makes us stand out above other paint contractors.

One of the most important parts of any paint service is getting the color right, which is why we use X-Rite color matching. We can get you the exact color you want time and time again. We use high-quality interior and exterior paint and have the ability to get to especially hard-to-reach locations. But we also know that getting the color and quality of the paint right and in the right places is only part of it. We will not only work with you to meet your deadline, but our goal, on every job, is to leave it exactly as we found it (except for the new paint). Taking care of the paint site, cleaning up materials, and making sure paint doesn’t go where it’s not supposed to are very important standards for us.

So if you are looking at an upcoming paint job and you’ve decided you want to bring someone in to take care of it, 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.

FS Construction Services Grain bin project profile

Project Profile: A 36’ Grain Bin Gives Some Certainty

Something that is always true for our friends and clients in the world of agriculture is that for them to succeed at their jobs, a number of things outside of their control must also happen. Not enough rain, too much rain, late frost, early frost, hail, invasive pests, etc., can all come without a moment’s notice and dramatically impact a growing season. And that’s just the natural side of things. On top of that there’s equipment that can break down, an aging grain bin can cause mold and rot, and on and on.
 

Replaced Aging Grain Bin Before Harvest

 
At FS Construction Services, we know that this can be stressful. Which is why our goal is always to provide a little guarantee into a world full of uncertainties. This was the case last September when a client needed a place to store their soon-to-be incoming grain. Thanks to our expert team, we were able to construct a 36’ diameter, 7-ring tall Sukup grain storage bin with a 24,000 bushel capacity. Additionally, we installed a horizontal power sweep unload, an axial fan, a spreader, and an exterior ladder with a safety cage. All of this was constructed within the month, ensuring our client would be able to move into harvest with one less what-if hovering over them.

We know that in this line of work all you can do is be as prepared as possible and then deal with whatever comes when it comes. Our job is to limit as many of those variables as possible by providing quality equipment and knowledgeable installation. If you are looking to update or upgrade your grain storage, grain handling, or grain drying equipment, or if you want to see what kind of equipment we would suggest for your situation, 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.

FS Construction Services Season's Greetings

Season’s Greetings

Even though it may not seem like it, somehow it’s already December and we are quickly approaching the start of another year. As always, this past year was another busy one at FS Construction Services, and it’s hard to believe it’s already over. We hope that with the holidays around the corner you will be able to take a little time to slow down, recharge, catch up on sleep, and spend some time with the ones you love.
 

Season’s Greetings from Our Families to Yours

 
While this year often felt more normal than the one before, there is no denying that it has had its fair share of change and stress. And while we would love to say that all that change and stress will disappear when January starts, we all know it doesn’t work that way.

However, what we do know is that the family, friends, and clients we get to share our lives with on a day-to-day basis are a resilient bunch. We are thankful for the example of their hard work and dedication. It inspires us to keep going, keep growing, and keep serving those around us.

We encourage you to take a moment, whenever you can, and appreciate the small things, the good things, and even the hard things that you have had to press through. Soon enough it will be a new year with new tasks, new jobs, and new sets of obstacles and we will be right back at it. But for now, we are going to enjoy a little calm in the midst of all the busyness.

FS Construction Services grain bin capacity storage

Project Profile: 66,000 Bushel Grain Bin Capacity Just in Time

At FS Construction Services, there are few better feelings than knowing that we’ve been able to provide some help in a time of need. Unfortunately for so many of our clients and friends in the agricultural world, their jobs can’t just be put on hold when something breaks down or wears out. They have a small window and if they miss it, there’s no going back. Because those demands of life never take a break, such as increasing your grain bin capacity, we work as hard as we can to keep up with them.
 

Increased Grain Bin Capacity Right Before Harvest

 
Last September, we had the opportunity to step in and help a client get set up with everything they needed to meet the coming harvest head on. Nathan Koester and his team built two brand-new 7-ring 42’ Sukup grain storage bins. Each bin had a capacity of 33,000 bushels, giving our client a huge boost in storage capacity just in time to use it. Additionally, our team installed a shared staircase between the two bins for access convenience and safety, as well as a power sweep and a centrifugal fan to keep the grain from developing moisture and mildew. Finally, we set both bins on an extra tall foundation to provide better access to the horizontal unload.

With the job complete, our client was able to move forward with the harvest without having to worry about having the space or equipment they would need to meet the demands of the yield.

Gateway FS Construction Services customized buildings

Building You the Best: From Inside to Outside Customized Buildings

Here at FS Construction Services, we have spent the past couple months talking about the various benefits and uses associated with steel and wood customized buildings. Throughout these articles we have often discussed just how customizable these buildings are. But we wanted to take a closer look at what that customization means, from the inside out. At the end of the day, our job is to build you the building that gives you exactly what you need and does away with anything you don’t.
 

The Best in Steel or Wood Customized Buildings

 
When working with us to design your building, you will have a number of choices. Some of them are pretty obvious, like: how many windows, how big should the doors be, what color do I want the exterior to be, etc. However, the possibilities can really go on and on. For instance, perhaps you need a machine storage building but you want to save some money and time and go with a dirt floor instead of a concrete pad. Not a problem. Perhaps you haven’t decided exactly how you’re going to utilize your building’s interior so you want to leave it unfinished until a later time.

Perhaps you only want half of it finished. The point is, we will work to give you the building you need for the present and the one you’ll want for the future. Whether that comes with a rugged dirt floor or a buildout for future office space, the choice is up to you.

If you are in process of thinking what a new building could be for you, or if you have any questions at all about our steel or wood building options, 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.

FS Construction Services high-quality garage doors

Project Profile: High-Quality Garage Doors

At FS Construction Services, we are all about the details. Obviously, this is a crucial component of any construction project, but even outside of a building’s function or safety, one mismatched element of a building, one thing that stands out for the wrong reasons, and the whole thing can be undone. The largest, most beautiful house in the world will lose its luster if it’s paired with an ugly or out-of-place garage door. High-quality garage doors can make all the difference.
 

Best Garage Doors for the Foreseeable Future

 
Which is why, when we had the opportunity to install two top-quality garage doors recently, it was like putting the cherry on top of a beautiful house sundae. For this project, we installed two Raynor Aspen AP200 LuxVue doors, one at 16×8 ft. and the other at 9×8 ft. These two-inch thick, thermally-efficient steel doors feature polyurethane insulation that completely fills the door’s interior space, meaning you’ll keep the heat and the cold where you want them, outside of your garage. All tracks, stiles, and hinges of these doors are powder coated white which not only increases strength, but provides an attractive look to all the door’s components. These doors also feature multiple four-square windows at the top, allowing natural light into the garage space. Our client chose the Distinct Finish Woodtone option with their doors, giving them an authentic-looking door, even down to the wood grain.

When paired with the house itself, these garage doors provided the perfect marriage of efficiency and appearance. Our client will have smooth-operating, attractive, and thermally efficient garage doors for the foreseeable future, making it one less thing on their house they’ll have to worry about or think about upgrading.

If you need to update your garage door, or your garage door opener, 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.

FS Construction Services Veterans Day

Saying Thank You this Veterans Day

It won’t come as a surprise to anyone that life comes at you fast, and often it seems like it’s only just speeding up. November is a busy time of year, whether it’s harvest coming to a close, holidays on the horizon, winter prep underway, or simply the day-to-day demands of life. So often we can be too busy, or too tired, or too distracted to slow down a little bit and take stock of where we are. These annual days of remembrance such as Veterans Day can be helpful signposts along the way, a chance to think about where we were the year before or an opportunity to find some gratefulness in the midst of our busyness.
 

Show Your Appreciation This Veterans Day

 
Here at FS Construction Services, we wanted to take a moment this Veterans Day to say thank you to the brave men and women who have served our country. We hope you’ll join us this Thursday, November 11, in remembering that our freedoms have come with a cost and we have all collectively benefited from the service of so many that have come before and will come after us.

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.

FS Construction Services building uses

Building You the Best: New Building Uses

Maybe it sounds dramatic to say, but when you think about building a new building there is really no end to the new building uses. At FS Construction Services, we have constructed our fair share of buildings over the years and each of them was its own, unique structure with its own, unique purpose. So while we like to think that any building can be anything you want, we also know that there are certain types of buildings that are better suited to specific tasks and needs than others.
 

Many Uses of Post Frame and Steel Buildings

 
Post-Frame

Many of our clients choose to construct a post-frame, or pole barn, building on their property. These buildings have almost limitless size, color, and layout options. Often, these buildings work as part garage, part recreation, part storage, part horse barn, or a variety of other uses.

A quality post-frame building goes a long way. From a backyard shed to house your lawn equipment to a machine storage shed to house your agriculture equipment, these buildings scale up and down and in and out to fit your requirements. With help from our partners at Walters Buildings, we can build you anything from storage space to a retail space to a horse barn to a church.

Steel

Now just because we’re talking about steel doesn’t mean that all customizability is gone. Our partners at Sukup Manufacturing and Butler Manufacturing allow us to provide strong, tailored steel buildings to our clients. Whether you need a huge, clear span for large machinery, or you need warehouse or retail space for your business, we can get you the steel building you want in the timeframe you need.

No matter the type of building you choose, we will work closely with you to make sure that it not only suits your needs, but looks and feels the way you want it to. If you are considering a new building, 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.

FS Construction Services Dripstop metal roofing protection

The Dripstop Difference

Imagine this scenario. You have spent the past few months planning a new building on your property. After going through all the necessary steps to get it planned, zoned, and actually built, you’re finally standing on the smooth concrete pad of your new structure. You look from end to end as all those possibilities you have imagined start to seem a little bit more real. Unfortunately, your daydreaming is cut short by the unpleasant sensation of something wet and cold falling onto your head. You look up just in time to catch another water droplet in your eye. And that’s when you realize your brand-new building has a condensation problem.

FSCS Offers Dripstop Protection for Metal Roofing

Thankfully, this dramatized, though not at all unrealistic, scenario does not have to be a glimpse of your future. And that’s because of a wonderful feature called Dripstop. Dripstop is a reliable, effective way to prevent your uninsulated roof from gathering and dripping moisture. All you have to do is let us know you want it installed, and then, while your roofing panels are being manufactured, the Dripstop membrane can be applied to the metal roof.

While simple, the process guarantees results. The Dripstop membrane gathers moisture that rises as the temperature starts to drop. It holds that moisture in place until the temperature rises again, and then it releases that moisture back into the air. No dripping ceiling, no wet foreheads, no unwanted moisture in your building. Sometimes the best solutions are the simplest, and that is absolutely the case with Dripstop.

If you have questions about installation, or if you are interested in a building with Dripstop protection, 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.
