Pre-Engineered Steel Building Verses a Pole Barn
Pre-Engineered Steel Building vs Pole barn . Steel versus wood is a no brainer, especially when it comes to putting wood in the ground. Pole barns are popular, inexpensive, and anyone can build them. Pole barns have a place and if it is all about the money then build one. But first here are a few things to consider;
A. Wood posts set directly in the ground have little or no resistance to rot, flood, fire, frost, or insects.
B. All wood treated or not will warp, twist, and shrink with age.
C. Some treated wood is poisonous and shouldn’t be used around human, and animals.
D. Wood quality is very inconsistent and structural failure is more common in wood. Steel is a fully engineered product man-made to rigid specs. And is absolutely consistent.
E. Most pole barns are not engineered (only the trusses), and engineered drawings are not available.
F. Pole barns have the lowest fire rating, higher insurance. Pole barns are prohibited in some areas and some banks will not lend for a pole barn as they may not consider them to be permanent, and often depreciate.
G. pole barns are easier to insulate and finish. This is not true as you can insulate and finish a steel building to the exact same specs. as wood.
If a pole barn fits your needs and budget then do your homework, and consider steel, you may be surprised. In this age of green building a 30 ft. x 40 ft. pole barn may use up to 10 old growth trees. A steel building the same size may use 10 to 15 recycled cars
