Why do we recommend shingles instead of steel roofing?

We recommend high quality 50-year lifetime shingles because of their 25–30-year warranty. Steel roofs use rubber O-rings. Michigan has harsh winters that will cause them to deteriorate quicker and cause leaking. With the high-quality shingles there are no O-rings to leak so you can enjoy your barn more and worry less.

What size garage door do you recommend?

We recommend adding 14’ doors to accommodate most RVs and campers.

What height should my barn be?

We recommend at least 16’ to accommodate the 14’ doors.

Will post rot in the ground?

Any ground contact wood will eventually rot. We use Perma-Columns which eliminates wood in the ground.

What is a Perma-Column?

They are precast concrete posts with a strength of 10,000 psi. normal concrete has a strength of 2,500 psi. They carry a lifetime warranty and keep the wood posts out of the ground to eliminate the chance of rot.

What heat source should I use in my barn?

We recommend In-floor radiant heat. It distributes heat evenly where installed. This will offer more control of the heat in your barn. The initial costs of installation may be more than alternatives, but it often provides cost savings in the long run with lower energy bills.

What are my options for doors?

Sliding pole barn doors- With sliding doors it requires you to unlock and open the door each time just to access the building. Sliding doors often do not seal completely which can expose your building to dirt, insects, animals, and add to heating/cooling problems.

Roll up doors- They are strong and durable. Also, they are easy to operate and have low maintenance. Usually costs about the same as an overhead door without the benefit of remote controls of larger doors. They are usually less customizable and less aesthetically pleasing.

Overhead door- They offer the most protection for your building, equipment, and supplies you keep in it. They seal and add weather resistance to provide the best temperature control and moisture prevention for your building.

We recommend the overhead doors.

 

What insulation do you recommend?

We recommend closed cell spray foam. It creates an airtight seal and fills all gaps. This adds to temperature control and noise reduction. It is very durable, resistant to water damage, mold, and pests. It also does not lose R-value like fiberglass insulation. It can last decades without being replaced.
