What Is a Pole Barn?

Pole barn buildings are built using a simplified form of construction that uses large posts or poles for vertical structural support and girths for horizontal supports. First developed in the 1930s, this form of creating a building offered a means by which larger structures could be erected more quickly and economically for a variety of purposes.

Modern versions of these pole buildings are commonly referred to as post-frame construction. The term “pole barn” harkens back to the original method of construction that used wooden poles like telephone poles. Today, sturdy metal posts are used instead of poles, and prefab barns using this sort of construction are both sturdy and inexpensive.

Types of Prefab Barn Kits in Canada

You can find several different types of prefab barn kits in Canada which offer a range of uses. The Suburban form of metal barns is great for things like man caves and she sheds or equipment storage space. Equestrian and Agricultural versions are ideal for uses such as horse barns, feed storage, equipment storage or stables. Commercial concerns are great for the metal warehouse building, office establishments, and steel retail buildings buildings.

Economic and Fast Metal Houses

One of the biggest advantages of metal barns is that they are inexpensive and lighting-fast to erect. You can choose the pole barn kits you need for each modular section of your metal home building and create a structure that conforms to your designs, all at a fraction of the cost of traditional building and with a fraction of the specialized labor needed. Even better, these buildings go up in a few days as opposed to weeks, months or years.

A steel frame barn’s construction style is steel columns anchored to a concrete foundation. This makes construction easier and more durable than the pole barn method. A steel frame barn is also weather-resistant, to both inclement weather and minor weather-related damage, such as mold, cracking and rotting. A steel frame pole barn is also fire resistant, does not require maintenance or repainting, and is made from hygienic material that does not support soil rotting.

Pole Barn Vs Steel Frame Construction Cost

Pole barns may be cheaper, though the average steel frame barn is listed at prices 60% less than traditional construction. Be aware, if you can save some money on a pole barn option, remember that you may be required to spend additional money on maintenance costs, longer construction times, and more investment if you want to expand the barn later on. A steel frame barn offers savings physically as well as economically. A steel frame barn also saves you energy costs, insurance costs (steel frame barns usually cost 40% less than pole barns) and may come with a generous warranty, lasting a few decades.

Lastly, let’s not forget to consider the welfare of your animal. Pole barns are usually not recommended for livestock because there is a risk of poisonous and unsanitary conditions thanks to the style of construction. Since you are building the barn for the horse, an animal that is either personally priceless or professionally expensive, choose only the safest option: barn steel.

    When I was looking for a smaller steel garage/port, I was extremely fortunate to have a salesman named Jude Cassimy help me with that I was looking for. He showed me exactly what I wanted and gave me quotes very quickly. Jude had great communication and was extremely thorough in trying to help me. Although I decided to go a different direction, Jude continued to have great service and provided support with questions. Metal Pro Buildings clearly has a high standard when it comes to business and customer service. Thank you!
