What is a pole barn?

A pole barn is a building that is constructed with square wooden posts that are embedded into the ground or by embedding the poles directly into the ground. The poles support the roof, floor, and walls. The building’s pressure-treated poles or footings are deeply embedded into the ground, allowing them to bear substantial pressure and giving them added strength. The pressure is evenly distributed around the structure and the poles, helping to give the pole barn good resistance to damage from the wind. The poles are part of the framing so that the structure is very stable. This style of construction has been used for hundreds of years.

Will a pole barn meet your needs?

Pole barns offer great value and are very durable. In all likelihood, you have encountered pole barns when you have visited a storage facility, arena, covered picnic location, or an auto mechanic’s garage. As structures that are supported by poles that are embedded and anchored to footings, pole barns are very durable and designed to last. You do not have to have a foundation or a finished floor. You can have a pole barn built in any size that you want. Since the framing runs horizontally to the poles, the structure is very sturdy. The wood posts are pressure treated along with other high quality components throughout the rest of your pole barn (trusses, sheeting, purlins, girts, etc.).

You can add many optional features to your pole barn, including lean-to, gable ends, enclosed walls, custom doors, insulation, window frameouts, etc. The roof style that you select can add to your building’s style. Pole barns are very affordable and simple for our builders to erect, helping to reduce the costs that you might expect to pay for your new building.

Daniel arrived promptly on a Friday evening after my garage became inoperable. After replacing two springs and some final tuning I was out the door in 30 minutes.
