With over 20,000 plus building constructed, PermaBilt® is all about customization to the needs of the our customers. That’s why we have been in the post frame construction business since 1973—we deliver the value that our customers are looking for. An example of that was when our Snohomish Washington customer came to us wanting to build a 2 car steel garage with shop. He looked at a number of designs and decided that he wanted a standard RV garage but with a unique twist. He wanted two lean-tos to seamlessly extend beyond the garage roof line so there would be two separate workshops jutting out from the main garage building. And that’s exactly what we did.
To begin the construction process, PermaBilt® set the posts in 4 foot holes with dry, compatible fill material to about 90% of its original compaction. This allowed for drainage while maintaining the original structural integrity of the post. Then once the building was erected, garage doors, walk-in doors, windows, overhangs and vents are added. Then finally the crew poured in the concrete. Designed for added strength and durability, the concrete included fiber-mesh reinforcement. Additionally, to reduce random cracking of the concrete as it
settled, zip-strip crack-control was added to the concrete.
Upon completion, our satisfied customer just didn’t have a garage and shop but rather a garage with two shops.
