What You Need to Know About Pole Barns, Ashland, Missouri

FAQ About Pole Barns

What are the advantages?

Pole barns can be built without spending a lot of time and money on the foundation. Unlevel ground, gravel, and dirt won’t get in the way of pole building construction. Because deep-set poles support the building, you can build one virtually anywhere. You’ll also save on labor costs because the construction takes less time overall.

What are other uses for a pole barn?

pole buildingsBecause they’re easy to scale, pole barns are used for a variety of structures. You can create a large garage big enough for all of your storage needs, a workshop with plenty of space dedicated to heavy-duty equipment, or horse stables with proper insulation for the colder months. Some people even use pole buildings as a guest house or apartment space due to their incredibly versatile characteristics.

Can you customize them?

Pole barns can be customized to your exact specifications, from size and shape to material type and color. When designing the structure with your building contractor, you can make sure the dimensions for your doors will be wide enough to accommodate heavy machinery or horses and ensure the structure is insulated properly to prevent heat from escaping during the winter months.

Are pole barns energy-efficient?

Post-frame buildings are energy-efficient by design because they don’t have interior load-bearing walls. The wide spacing between the vertical posts allows for large sheets of uninterrupted insulation and better ventilation to occur throughout the structure, resulting in significant energy savings all year-round.
