That's why we offer options and standard features that our competition doesn't. To stay at the forefront of the industry, versatility and customization is key. Oregon Pole Barns offers the latest quality alternatives to mainstream building suppliers and that translates to a satisfied customer every time. Whether its as big as a horse arena or small as an artists studio, Oregon Pole Barns sets that standard and here's what you can expect.
Highest Quality Lumber- When Oregon Pole Buildings provides the materials for your building or shelter, you can count on only the highest grade lumber. Unlike many who use substandard, poor quality wood to cut costs, we take pride in building with only the best to ensure that your building outlasts and outshines your neighbors.
Ground Assembled Roofing System- In almost every instance, when using one of Oregon Pole Barns prefered contractors, we have the assembly of the roof system done while on the ground. This method allows for a significantly greater accuracy in squaring and true alignment, than other common in the air methods. When the roofing is square its much easier to get a tight seal and prevent a wavy roof. Read on to find out why we strongly reccomend using ODB wood on our engineered buildings.
Rodent Guard- The best way to describe rodent guard is the ounce of prevention to eliminate the pound of cure. An unquestioned and integral part of every Oregon Pole Barn custom kit or building, rodent guard can prevent the heartache and wallet-crunch of having to rip out mangled and infested insulation, not to mention replacing your stored contents. Where many companies treat this as an option, Oregon's top barn building company considers this an undeniable standard inclusion.
Available Options and Alternatives
Kiln Dried Wood- Besides being lighter, kiln dried wood is stronger and offers long term protection against rot. Because the kiln drying process kills wood boring insects and fungi that cause wood staining, you have a finished product that is more attractive and in an average barn only costs a negligible amount more.
Laminated Poles- Aesthetically pleasing, smoother than rough-cut lumber, and a greater load bearing strength, laminated poles and beams are available through Oregon's top pole barn building company.
OSB/ Plywood Roofing- With a separate layer between the metal and the trusses, adding OSB or plywood gives a substantially more solid roof. Add tar paper and you get a seal that prevents a high percentage of leaking and roof damage even if there is a hole in the metal work, as all water drains to the outside of the building. It also puts an extra layer of “insulation” to help combat condensation effects.
DripStop Roofing- Specially lined with felt like material, DripStop is an exclusive offer through Oregon Pole Barns. Designed for condensation control, DripStop is a more efficient way of reducing the likelihood of metal degradation due to humid environments, ammonia corrosion from animals, and high temperature variances in certain seasons. Using DripStop technology, you eliminate the need for vapor barrier.
Commercial Girts- Like horizontal studs, girts are the framework that the sheeting is screwed to. Commercial girts are often described as a “bookshelf” style. Among their many benefits, commercial girts allow for insulation in colder climates and increases the wind load (resistance) and stability a building has. If there is any thought that you might be interested in insulating the building, let us know in the beginning. Using commercial girts saves you time and money over trying to retrofit your building for insulation later.
Wainscoting- A classy feature that really gets the neighbors drooling, wainscoting really perks up the building creating satisfying eye-candy for years to come. Matching the trim to the wainscoting color creates a striking impression and an air of sophistication to any building.
Cupolas- Cupolas can have a two fold purpose. Other than the tasteful, attractive and pleasing detail of the buildings design, cupolas can play a critical function in ventilation of a pole building. Allowing the warm stagnant air to escape and cool air to enter The proper ventilation a cupola provides guards against culture of molds and mildew that can compromise the building structure and all items stored within their walls. Another tool against condensation, the cupola gives more choices to the client and insurance for a well functioning building that will last for generations.
