Footing Methods

Footings are used to support the building and prevent it from settling. In colder climates, it's important that the footing extend below the "frost line" so that the building isn't subject to frost heave. Footings need to bear on undisturbed soil, which is important to consider if your building pad is located on a sloping grade. With Post Frame methods, longer columns can be furnished where required to achieve a proper footing depth.

Roof Trusses

Roof Trusses are designed to carry certain loads such as wind, snow, ceilings, the weight of the roof and any roof traffic. Trusses are a key structural component and most building jurisdictions will require that they meet design loads. Trusses can also play a role in the function of your building as well its overall appearance.

Roof Framing Methods

The construction of your roof is determined by which one of the three Framing Methods you've chosen. Roof Purlins on Face is our standard and can be used on the Craftsman Framing Method or the Stud Wall Framing Method. Our Traditional Framing Method uses either Roof Purlins on Edge or Inset Roof Purlins.

Roofing Types

It's important for your new building to have the proper roof system for its intended purpose. Ribbed Steel over Roof Purlins is good for most applications on sheds, garages and barns. If your building will have a finished interior or will be heated and cooled it may be worth considering one of the methods that use an underlayment of OSB Sheathing and Roof Felt.

Overhangs

Adding Overhangs to your new building is the single best way to dress it up and they're functional too. We offer several different Styles to help you achieve the look you're after whether it's a basic shed, a nice garage or a classic stall barn. Overhangs also allow an attic space to vent properly if you decide to install a ceiling now or in the future.

Cupolas and Dormers

Cupolas are a nice touch to finish out your building. They can function as ventilation but usually are just for looks and mounted on a weather tight base. Cupolas are color matched to the building at no extra charge and come with your choice of weathervane. If your building will have attic space or a loft area then a dormer might be useful for providing light and ventilation.
