Delmarva Pole Building Supply, Inc.- What is a Pole Building?
The technical term for pole buildings is post frame construction. A pole building can be can be a garage, a warehouse, a church building, a home, a firehouse or a horse barn. It can have steel siding, wood or vinyl siding, brick, or stone, and the roof can be wood shakes, asphalt shingles, standing seam, or a simple steel roof. It can be plain, average, or extravagant, and it can be build faster, stronger, and more economically than conventional "stick-built" buildings.
In the last one hundred and twelve years, millions have been built in the US alone, and while they started in the agricultural industry as a low cost alternative to expensive and cramped barns, due to advances in technology they are now used in every building segment except for skyscrapers.
Pole buildings are also commercial storefronts, community centers, churches, and government buildings. These types of buildings are built every year using post frame construction because of the need for a building that marries strength and speed of construction with good looks and a thrifty budget.
