Almost any low-rise building may be most quickly constructed using post-frame design. Although many people mistakenly identify them as “metal buildings” because metal cladding and metal roofing are common, almost any type siding, roofing or other architectural features may be used with post-frame. They can also be insulated to make them more energy efficient than other types of buildings. Although their range of use is growing, post-frame buildings remain the selection of choice for most agricultural buildings, including horse barns, riding arenas and other equine, livestock and storage applications.
Post-frame technology is recognized as a truly significant advancement in the centuries-old art of wood frame construction. The development of this technology during recent years came about via the application of modern structural engineering principals and stress testing methods.
Concurrently, highly effective wood treatment chemicals - both for preventing decay and retarding fire - were also developed. As a result, you can choose post-frame construction for your new building and be fully confident it will have the strength and durability you have every right to expect
An often-overlooked feature of wood is its insulation quality, which is far superior to that of steel or masonry. What's more, the natural "wall cavity" of a post frame building lends itself to the easy installation of a variety of insulation materials. You'll appreciate this fact if you elect to do some of the finish work yourself!
Another significant cost-saving feature of post frame construction is the ease and speed of finishing both exterior and interior surfaces. Unlike steel or masonry construction, wood components used in post frame erection permit the direct application of a virtually unlimited selection of wall, ceiling and roof materials. The cost and time of installing "nailers" is eliminated.
When the time comes to expand, your initial choice of post frame construction will again be amply rewarded. The same features which saved so much time and money during initial construction pay off again when you need to add on. Your addition will again be under roof and enclosed more quickly - and at far less cost than if you had originally selected some other construction method.
