How long do pole buildings last?
Pole buildings can well outlast their function with minimal maintenance. They are known to last a lifetime, up to 100 years or more.
Why don’t you have a price list?
We don't include a price list on our website because final building prices can fluctuate drastically for a number of reasons, and we don't want to make you a price promise we can't keep. Prices can fluctuate based on what materials you choose, and what specific additions you want to your building (for example, climate control, how many doors and what type of doors, flooring, windows, etc.). Lumber and other building material prices also change often. You can call us to set up a consultation, and we can come out to your property and provide a quote based on the specific details you provide to us.
What is the difference between post-frame and pole building?
Post-frame building and pole building are essentially one in the same and the terms are used interchangeably. The term 'pole building' was first used when the type of building system was invented because telephone poles were the main component! Now, of course telephone poles are no longer used, and the term has evolved to 'post-frame'.
What permits do I need for a pole building?
The permits you need to have a pole building constructed on your property depend on the zoning regulations in your township, city, and/or county. In rare cases, you won't need a permit at all if your area is unzoned. Your KBSI representative can help you through this process. You can view our zoning resource links here.
How long does it take for a pole building to be built once the contract is finalized?
