Train Depot Project
In 1904 the Northern Pacific Railroad built the train station located here in Helena MT. In 1935 Helena suffered an earthquake that caused severe damages to the depot, along with other buildings in Helena. Pictured, is the roof being repaired in October of 1935, and 83 years later, Square One Construction re-roofed the building in September of 2018. Finally pictured is the difference between the building in 1957, and now as it stands in 2020.
The Barn Project
In 1906 began the remarkable story of Orvis Evans and Cornelius “Con” Kelly, or the Copper Kings. These two men wanted a place to spend the summers with their families, fishing, hunting, and relaxing. They found that place in Northwestern Montana on the Shores of Swan Lake. This is were they started, the now historic, Kootenai Lodge. The Barn was originally built in 1915 to house the Copper Kings polo ponies. Square One Construction was fortunate enough to keep this vision of these historic men going, with re-roofing The Barn in December of 2019. This 100 Ft Radius Barn is now roofed with Radiused 2” 24 GA Structural Mechanical Lock. Pictured below is the Copper Kings, The Barn in 1982, and The Barn present day.
This is a 22 gauge tru-ten A606 material. The panel profile is 16 7/8” X 1” Tru-Snap. This panel is held down with a stainless steel clip providing that hidden fastener roof for that sleek design. This steel roof, is designed to rust providing that rustic look that fits in perfectly with a Montana backdrop. It is long lasting and very durable. The snow break seen in the photos is designed to prevent sudden release of snow that may cause damage and injury.
This roof was previously covered in shingles. Due to improper timing of installing during the cold winter months, adhesion never occurred allowing for moisture penetration over time. By the time the homeowner discovered that his roof had been leaking, a fair amount of water damage had occurred. To avoid any future problems, we applied a new 29 gauge Tuf-Rib dark gray steel roof. This is an exposed fastener system. Steel roofing can be applied during any time of year unlike shingles.
This roof is new construction. The roofing panel profiled here is a 26 Gauge 16” wide X 1” tall rib Snap Lock panel. Weathered Copper in color. Not only does this roof provide an aesthetically pleasing look, it offers strength in ways most roofs cannot offer. It is applied using a hidden fastener technique providing a clean sleek look without visible fasteners.
This roof is new construction. The roofing panel profiled here is a 26 Gauge 14” wide X 1 3/4” tall rib True-Snap. These panels were so long that they had to be made on site using a portable roll-former. The reason this particular panel was used is that it is designed for extreme lengths allowing for proper expansion and contraction reducing the stress due to thermal reaction.
