  3. Do I need to have a permit to have a pole barn constructed on my property?
    The requirements and restrictions are different in each area. The customer will be responsible for all building permits and costs. We will work with you and your local building inspector to insure compliance with building regulation.
  4. Do I need to have a level building site?
    All site preparation must be completed before we arrive to construct your building. We prefer the site to be within 5 inches to grade. An excavation contractor is recommended for this process. "Looking with the eye" to determine grade is not recommended. Additional cost may incur to the customer if construction is forced to stop while the building pad is corrected or if they are forced to wait for additional materials.

    The following materials are standard in our buildings but can be changed to accommodate your building needs: 6 x 6 treated posts, 2 x 8 treated bottom plate, 2 x 6 girts, 2 x 4 purlins, inside and outside top supports, factory built - engineer stamped trusses, and factory built entrance door.​ See the Materials page for custom options such as overhangs, wainscot, garage doors, cupolas etc.

    The builder will determine what type of equipment will be needed should difficulty happen digging the holes. If the auger cannot provide acceptable post hole depth, then the customer will be responsible for providing any equipment necessary.
  2. What is the difference between 29 gauge and 26 gauge metal?
    The 29 gauge metal panel is most commonly used and is efficient for most applications. The 26 gauge metal is thicker and is an additional cost.

    Condensation occurs from humidity in the air. When warm, moist air inside the building comes in contact with the cold surface, it accumulates condensation on the metal. Insulating your building will help and also ensure proper ventilation.
  5. Can you install an overhead door in my building?
    Yes, we offer overhead door installation. The wall height of the building will determine the height and size of the door that can be installed.

  7. Will I need to pay any additional taxes for my building? Do I need to send a deposit when I order a building?
    The price quoted includes all taxes. Yes, a portion of the total contracted amount is required when you sign the contract. This provides us with confidence needed to invest time and money in ordering and assembling the materials for your project.

    Start time between signing the contract and beginning of construction vary. The weather, time of year, permits required all play a factor in the start date. The complexity and type of materials required to construct your building may also effect lead time. We typically fulfill contracts in the order received.
