Tips for Finding a Pole Barn Builder


Searching for a pole barn builder may be difficult in some states and if there are no pole barn specialists in your area you should ask friends and neighbors for information on local contractors who can do the job. You can also go online and look for them, along with reviews of their work.

Make sure you find a pole barn builder with a good reputation and successful track record. You want one known for quality materials, craftsmanship and service after the sale.

Ask about the experience and training of their building crews and foremen. Your best choice is a company with low turnover and committed employees.

Also make sure your builder is a member of the National Frame Builders Association, an organization that specializes in post-frame/pole barn construction and is committed to sound pole barn construction methods.

Your pole barn builder should also be familiar with your local zoning regulations to insure that a pole barn can be constructed on your property.

You should ask prospective pole barn builders if they have referrals you can speak with; if they can show you samples of recent work; if they are licensed in your state; and if they will provide a written contract.

The contract should cover costs, brands of items being installed, approximate start and finish dates and a complete set of drawings being used with written specifications.

Also make sure exactly who will be building your pole barn. Contractors sometimes hire subcontractors to do parts of the job. This can be good because they are specialists, but you should make any arrangements with your contractor.
