OPTIONS

Here is a list of Options you might consider when planning your new Pole Building:

Size:We custom build every Pole Building to your needs.The most popular sizes are 30’ x 40’, 40’ x 60’ and 40' x 80. When planning use even footage increments.

Header Height:10’ ~ 12’ ~ 14’ ~ 16’ ~ 20'.Consider the size garage door(s) you will need in determining your height.You will need at least 15" clearance below the header height for the rails and opener. Most customers go 2' below the header height.

Roof Pitch:4/12 ~ 5/12 ~ 6/12 ~ 7/12 ~ 8/12 No higher due to risk factors.

 

4/12 being the standard size.We also use 2/12 or 3/12 for Lean-To’s.These are regular Trusses.We also have Attic Trusses for those who need heavy storage, however Attic Trusses do cost a bit more.Stock trusses:20’ ~ 24’ ~ 30’ ~ 32’ ~ 36’ ~ 40’

Glu-Lam Posts:Lighter, straighter and stronger than solid sawn or nailed laminated posts.C.C.A. treated laminations are used on the ground contact end.C.C.A. penetration is greater than solid sawn posts.Untreated wood above ground eliminates the need for galvanized fasteners.Finger jointed to form one piece laminations.

Post Protectors: We offer the Smart Post as an option for those who would like to feel more confident about the life of their posts used in Post Framing Construction. They provide superior protection from the harmful effects of: Concrete, rot & decay, moisture, termites/soil organisms, corrosive soil agents, soil nutrients and oxygen. Extends the service life and enhances the performance of wooden posts. They are environmentally friendly, not only does Smart Post function as a barrier to prevent decay, it also prevents the preservative chemicals in treated posts from entering the soil. Cost is $35 and up per post according on length.

Double Bubble Insulation:This is a 5/16” thick insulation.It is a foil backed product with a white poly on the opposite side.The foil comes in rolls.It is sandwiched between the roof and the rafters.It resists conductive heat flow as well as prevents the building from condensation.The white backing gives your Pole Building a nice finished look as well.

SunSky Panels:Most popularly used just under the eave(s) at 2’ x length of the building to provide a natural light source.Available in Clear, Soft White or White Opal.Sky Lights in Polycarbinate or Fiberglass available too in 3' x 8' or 3' x 16' sizes x the number of skylites you want.

Other Siding:There are other grades available in “Economy”Galvanized or AZ50 Galvalume coating and steel thickness to meet comparable standard panel offering in the market.Used when not exposed to harsh rural or industrial environments.Economy is below the specifications for the industry standards.Prime paint offered an attractive panel for an economy price.Material may also have minor visual defects.There is no paint warranty on this product.Used for temporary or short term structures, for interior uses, and other places where panel quality may not be a priority.Lowest Cost Grade.
