Superior Quality Pole Barns

You’ll hear this phrase when talking to most other pole barn contractors, but what exactly does that mean?

Well, at Prairie Barns Construction, we do things a little differently than the other pole barn builders out there.

• Truss spacing – We install our trusses on a maximum of 4’ centers. Many other builders will opt for 8’ spacing, to lower construction costs. During the winter as snow accumulates, the increased truss spacing means fewer structural components to carry the additional load. 

• Sub-purlins – when stood vertically, the sub-purlin provides a 1 ½” wide nailing flange to attach the two edges of the adjoining sheeting material. We lay our sub-purlins on their side to provide either a 4 or 6” wide nailing flange for the sheeting. The result is stronger seams and less potential for leaks.

• Galvanized ring-shank nails – are made from stiffer steel than smooth-shank nails. They provide superior holding power since the nail threads lock into the wood fibers to minimize backing-out.  We use ring shank galvanized nails to fasten all of our framing members together.  We also use structural timber screws at key attachment points such as the header plates.

We use manufacture approved screws with rubber washers to fasten steel wall and roof panels.

These building standards, combined with our attention to detail and our strong work-ethic has resulted in hundreds of pole barns that will stand the test of time, and nature.
