Metal Pole Barns for President!

 You may definitely vote for metal pole barns after reading this…

Wonder why you are seeing more churches, auto repair or tool and die shops, studios, and manufacturing facilities operating from metal pole barns? An increasingly large number of professionals and tradesmen are choosing to have metal buildings built from pole barn kits for their businesses rather than traditional office structures and here’s why:

·      Metal pole barns are more affordable to own than traditional office space.

o   Any way you cut it, pole barn buildings are more affordable than traditional office buildings built from scratch. And, not just one or two times less expensive to build, they are at least ten times cheaper.

o   And, the savings don’t stop at the “kit-and-construct” price. Ovver time metal buildings stand up better to nature and weather: insects, storms, heat and sun, and other elements…so there are fewer repairs.

o   They are very affordable to maintain, too! Not a lot of exterior painting or cleaning. Metal pole barns are virtually maintenance-free!

·      Metal pole barns are quick and easy to construct.

o   Traditional office buildings take a long time to construct. But not just that, there are many delays due to codes, regulations, and inspections required that are not always required in metal pole barn kit construction. (Please check with your local authorities to make sure you follow all the proper permit instructions).

o   It takes as little as 2-3 weeks to build a pole barn kit from scratch. And, it takes very little labor and tools once you have your lot leveled and prepared for it.

·      Metal pole barns are very flexible in use.

o   One Pole Barn Company customer bought a pole barn kit to construct to store his toys. Next time we heard from him, he was purchasing upgrades to convert it to open a auto repair shop.

o   Upgrades and modifications are quick and easy if you buy from The Pole Barn Company. Compare this to modifying a traditional office building. ‘Nuff said!


If you have a business venture in mind and your roadblock is building space, consider a metal pole barn built from a kit. Metal pole barn buildings provide a quick and affordable way to construct warehouses, office spaces, workshops, hangars, even churches and homes.

How to Buy a New House (or Building) Without Paying Agent Fees

  Buying a pole barn kit and constructing your own home or building definitely has its advantage when it comes to agent fees...or lack of them. How is this? Because there are none!

Real estate agents typically charge a 6% in fees or commission on the sale price for a new home. So buying without an agent can certainly save you a lot of money.

Even if you are a buyer, and not a seller, some how, some way an agent has their hands in the pot in the sale of a home. Buyers will typically raise the asking price for their home to cover their real estate agent’s fees. So, in the end, buyers really have paid the agent fees on a new house.

That’s not the only agent whose hands are in the pot. When you go to finance your new home or building, you will pay fees to the mortgage lender, the appraiser, the inspector, the title company and many more who are “line items “on your closing documents.

Buying a pole barn kit and constructing your own home or building definitely has its advantage when it comes to agent fees...or lack of them. How is this? Because there are none! No fees! Just a simple purchase of building materials, plus tax, from The Pole Barn Company.

While a good agent can certainly help with finding you a premium location for your home or building. With your pole barn, chances are you can you do this without their help help at all. After all, you must already know where you want to construct your pole barn if you are looking to buy one now. So, you don’t really need someone’s opinion for 3-6% saying “yah…that would be good!”

Closing the deal on a pole barn kit is a whole lot easier than buying a home. In most cases, you pay a formulated price for the size of your pole barn, whether it’s 20x40, 30x40, 40x40, 40x60 or some custom configuration. Regardless, you only pay for the cost of the building materials you need to build your pole barn. Windows, doors, and other options will add to the cost, of course. In short, it’s not a negotiation like buying a home whereby you need to have a fee-charging agent representing you.

All you really will need is construction advice and tools! For this, The Pole Barn Company offers building plans for every configuration and layout. That’s the advice. And, with the plans, comes your tool list.

Want to know more about pole barn kits from The Pole Barn Company? Call us at 844-213-0034, or visit us at http://www.thepolebarncompany.com/kits/. For an immediate quote on your pole barn configuration, visit http://www.thepolebarncompany.com/quote/index.php?package=standard&zip=.

Oversized Glass Garage Doors Make a Statement in a Pole Barn

An oversized glass garage door in the main space of a pole barn can add tons of style and natural light.

Glass garage doors are low maintenance, low cost and can serve to be a focal point in your design, whether you use your pole barn as a home, office or workshop. The floor to ceiling window views that a glass garage door can provide will allow you to take advantage of the breathtaking views if you have your pole barn on a nice landscape.


Even though a 30 x 40 pole barn kit can be assembled to be a living space, it is still smaller than a typical home. However, if you install an oversized glass garage door, you can add a unique design aesthetic that also invites maximum light into your pole barn…without letting anyone see inside your garage!


If a glass garage door is in your design plan for your pole barn kit, check out this option: www.clopaydoor.com/avante. The Avante™ by Clopay® can be customized to fit any pole barn kit and different window options allow you to choose the right degree of natural light for your pole barn. Glass garage doors will give your pole barn a modern look and can even add a splash of color in the aluminum panels.


Give yourself the affordability that a pole barn kit offers but add the luxury of contemporary design with a glass garage door and you’ve built yourself a masterpiece.
