Pole Barn Building Style and Common Uses

Our post frame pole barn building types range from garages and shops to horse barns and arenas to all sizes of commercial pole buildings. Our pole barn buildings are engineered to be energy-efficient and highly resistant to fire, earthquake, flood and wind forces. PermaBilt post frame pole barn buildings feature systems of widely spaced pressure-treated posts that are embedded in the ground and function as the foundation and structural frame. Each post frame structure is covered with 29 Gauge High-Tensile Steel Siding and Steel Roofing backed with a limited lifetime manufacturer’s warranty.

PermaBilt’s sophisticated “diaphragm” building design is a significant improvement over traditional pole building or stick-frame structures. It transfers the load through the roof, down the walls and into the ground. This makes PermaBilt structures stronger and able to withstand lifting winds, falling trees and other hazards better than a conventionally framed building. By allowing the roof to move as one piece, our diaphragm design helps PermaBilt buildings keep their lines through year after year of harsh weather conditions.

Why call it a Pole Barn? The term “Pole Barn” goes back to the Great Depression in the 1930’s. When many American farmers found that using old utility poles was a fast and cost-effective way to construct their barn for many types of agricultural needs. This method soon became a go to for farmers to easily build pole barns of all types for storage, equipment, horses and any other farm related need.
