Many agricultural operations will use pole barn construction for a quick and inexpensive solution for their building and storage needs. Pole barns are known for their fast and easy construction, inexpensive materials, and versatile options. However, as we all know, what you pay for is what you get. Although pole buildings are the quicker and cheaper route, you may want to consider the consequences before you construct one.
The frame of a pole barn is made of wooden beams buried into the ground, with either wooden or tin walls bolted onto them. With this type of construction, the poles can move over time and be prone to decay, which can cause serious structural damage that may be irreversible. Since pole building materials are wooden, your building will be susceptible to water damage during rainy seasons, and in places where the humidity is high, you will face constant water problems. Wooden materials also attract termites, bees, beetles, and other insects and pests.
If you are wanting a durable, long-lasting building that can withstand all weather conditions and is extremely versatile, invest in a hoop building by Accu-Steel. Our hoop buildings are made with a galvanized steel frame that won’t rust or corrode over time. They are also covered by HL13 fabric with HYDRA-LOC™ technology, the most durable tensile fabric cover available on the market today.
Since the steel frame of a hoop building is anchored to a concrete foundation, you will be provided with long-lasting stability and support. Not only do our galvanized steel frames resist weather, but they are also resistant to fire. Steel buildings do not require the maintenance that pole buildings do – you will never have to re-paint or repair.
Another advantage that steel hoop buildings provide is their clear span space. In a pole barn, the interior space is obstructed by wooden poles. Hoop buildings offer vast interior space and height without you having to navigate around posts and beams. This type of construction is ideal to provide livestock with unobstructed floor space and to provide maneuverability for large equipment and vehicles.
All in all, the benefits of steel construction far surpass those of the pole barn. If you want to make a good investment for your business, choose hoop buildings by Accu-Steel Fabric Covered Buildings today.
