Tips When Considering a Post-Frame Building?
Machine sheds, equestrian buildings, garage, hobbies, the sky's the limit on what you can create with a post-frame structure. Post-frame buildings are known for durability, efficiency, and long-standing construction. That's why at Gingerich Structures, we only use premium 26-gauge steel that comes with 40-year warranties.
To enjoy the benefits of your future post-frame buildings, note these critical tips to ensure they're constructed appropriately.
Individual pieces are essential but making sure all those pieces are working together structurally. TIP: A strong truss needs to be appropriately connected to a column. And the column needs to be properly embedded into the ground or attached to the building's foundation. When you have the correct assembly, your building will stand the test of time.
Utilities should be planned while you are looking into the local building codes. Planning for these installations ahead of time will save you money and an unnecessary headache. TIP: Planning ahead of construction could shave days off of your build time!
Before designing your building, it's crucial to look into your local building codes. These codes set the standard for your design and construction needs; they'll set the standard. TIP: All building plans must be reviewed and approved by the Residential or Commercial Building Plan Review team.
The location of your building is an essential part of planning. Questions to ask yourself:
- Building too close to natural features?
- Other structures?
- Property easements?
Site planning is a must to avoid these issues. TIP: Proximity considerations can even include grading and topography, so you're aware of potential flood risks, erosion, or seasonal concerns.
