PROVIDING STRUCTURAL INTEGRITY AND LONGEVITY

Our wall systems are typically constructed with 2×6 purlins and spaced at 2 foot on center.

We provide Pre-Engineered trusses that are manufactured specifically for your building and location. During building construction, the poles are notched to receive the trusses allowing the weight of the roof system to be transferred onto the posts.

Our buildings are enveloped with 28g (heavy) CanAmerican metal cladding touting a 40 year limited paint warranty.

 

SUPERIOR COLOURS THAT LAST

Our extensive colour palette allows you to choose your color design from 27 rich colors, galvanized or galvalume bringing a fresh and stylish finish to your building.
