Pole Barns offer no resistance to flood and frost heaving as they are set directly into the
earth. Pressure treated wood, which is used for pole barns, is prone to warping and shrinking.
It is not recommended for permanent installations. Pole barns require long-term maintenance.
As the foundation frame members shift they must be straightened every 5 to 7 years, averaging
$2,500 in maintenance costs. Pole barns intended for livestock must avoid copper sulfate treated
wood poles as wood purlins and grits are poisonous and unsanitary.
Pole barns have a Class A fire rating, which is the lowest resistance to fire, and are not for
public use. When you think about the many hours of labor spent on the construction of a pole barn,
consider each long-term step of pole barn maintenance. Tedious sorting, fitting, and cutting of
materials, complex assembly, regular reattachment and paintings, as well as the resheeting every
7 to 10 years. Pole barns are also difficult to obtain permits for and are prohibited in many
Steel Buildings & Metal Buildings
Steel and metal buildings bolt to a solid concrete foundation. A metal sheeting notch ensures the
building will be frost and flood proof. Steel is sanitary and nonpoisonous for livestock and does
not warp. Property insurance on a steel or metal building is generally 30% lower than conventional
construction projects. Once a steel or metal building is constructed you do not have to think
about it for the next 20 years.
Steel and metal buildings usually rate a Class C fire rating and are suitable in any zoning district.
Easily specified to meet or exceed the most strict earthquake codes or any other commercial codes
in America, a steel or metal building is a worry-free property investment.
