Here are some common questions we receive. We thought you would find this information helpful as you do your research:
What is a Pole Barn?
“Pole Barn” is a term used to describe a building or shelter that uses wood framing (often as opposed to steel) for its primary structural elements. It is often described as Post Frame Construction and it can be a more economical form of construction to cover land and provide shelter than metal-frame buildings. While economical in comparison to metal buildings, pole barns are generally far stronger and much more durable than lightweight structures like pre-fab carports. While many Pole Barns are open-shelter structures with no walls, they can be fully or partially enclosed.
What is a Pole Barn used for?
Do you have an RV, boat, tractor, or other equipment that you’d like to keep under cover? Do you need a place to park cars or ATVs? Do you need to store hay, or provide shelter for livestock? Do you need a place to entertain or educate? Do you need a place to work or a shop? Whatever your need, a Smith Built designed Pole Barn can be your solution!
Why a Smith Built Pole Barn?
Smith Built specializes in the design and manufacture of the highest quality pole barns. We use only a high-quality square-tube steel truss system that has been specifically engineered to provide the stability and sturdiness that a Pole Barn requires. We believe that our tubular steel trusses provide significant advantages over those made of painted angle iron or those made out of wood. Not only are they enormously strong and lightweight, they are logical and simple to erect – a dream for the do-it-yourselfer!
What types of Pole Barns does Smith Built make?
We design, manufacture, and assemble kits for open shelters, fully enclosed structures, or any combination of the two, as well as lean-to’s. We stock trusses in a variety of widths (12’, 16’, 20’, 24’, 30’, and 40’) and are able to provide you with trusses up to 60’ by special order. We provide all of the wood structural elements (columns, purlins, fascia), and we manufacture and fabricate all of the roofing and trim components in-house.
A Pole Barn ordered from Smith Built comes complete with everything the project requires. Our expert staff can answer any product and installation question you might have. We have developed a detailed and illustrated installation guide for those who intend to put the Pole Barn up themselves. If you would prefer to have your Pole Barn professionally installed, we can recommend experienced teams to do that work for you!
