Worship Center ~ Cottleville, MO 63304


The Worship Center is part of the campus for Grace Presbyterian Church of St. Charles County. Darnell Construction was contracted to installed a Roof Hugger System over the existing roof, and an additional layer of insulation was installed between the light weight structural purlins to improve energy efficiency of the building. The roof hugger system allows for a new roof to be installed with minimal disruption in the use of the building, and reduces the possibility of uncertain dangers if the roof were to be removed for replacement. This method is also more cost effective which is saving for the client. Darnell Construction installed McElroy Metal 24 gauge Maxima ADV standing seam roof panels, and SnoClips with the S-5 ColorGard snow retention system in Hartford Green.

The original gutter boards were not perpendicular to the ground so the old gutters had a wedge behind them. Darnell Construction built up the fascia backer at the eaves to eliminate the need for wedges behind behind the gutters. Steel fascia trims with an 1-1/2″ overhang past the enclosed soffit were installed to create a shadow effect, and D-style steel seamless gutters were installed, both in Hartford Green. Darnell Construction also replaced the steeple and cross which can be found in a separate photo album.
