materials Intro

Superior craftsmanship

We build the best. Our post frame builds are easily customizable and economical. We offer unique features, including versatile designs, superior structural integrity and longevity, and flexible and efficient construction processes to match any build or location challenges.

Full-service project management

Our team provides comprehensive project management services, tailoring every facet of construction to suit your application, structure and location perfectly.

Experienced post frame crews

Trust our seasoned crews to deliver exceptional results with every project, backed by years of experience and expertise.

Quality construction standards

Typically, our builds feature 3 and 4-ply 2x8 laminated construction with a minimum burial depth of 6' and 12" crushed rock underside. Post spacing ranges from 4' to 6' on center, ensuring robust structural support.


Precision-engineered trusses,
customized for your building and location, ensure optimal performance and longevity.

Innovative design features

Poles are expertly notched to receive trusses, facilitating seamless transfer of roof weight onto posts, enhancing stability and durability.

Industry-leading warranties

Our products are backed by the most comprehensive warranty packages, including 75 years on treated posts and 40 years on metal cladding.

Superior products

We use only the best materials backed by the best warranties. With four divisions in-house—post plant, steel rolling mill, truss manufacturer and cellulose insulation manufacturer—we offer our customers a truly superior product.

We only use the highest-quality, independently tested industrial posts. All posts are laminated and come with a 75-year warranty on the treated timber. We provide multi-ply posts available in different lengths with 2×8 construction.

Posts spaces and depth

Posts are typically 4′, 5′ or 6′ on center, with a minimum of 6′ burial. However, post spacing and depth requirements are indicative of your area and may be adjusted to comply with local building standards.

Wall system

Our wall systems are typically constructed with 2×6 purlins and spaced at 2 feet on center providing structural integrity and longevity.


We provide pre-engineered trusses manufactured to 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.

All component members are custom cut by the latest state-of-the-art robotic and automated saws. All truss members are then assembled on modern gantry tables using a laser projection system to ensure dimensional accuracy. Our trusses are fully constructed at our plant before delivery. The finished product receives a thorough inspection to ensure accuracy of dimensions and structural components.

We bundle trusses based on site requirements saving you valuable time during construction. Our roof trusses are designed and built to handle longer spans, reducing the need for supports and allowing for a larger and more open floor plan.
