Top Quality Pole Barns
A pole barn is a barn created from post frame construction. It is a very simplified building technique that is adapted from labor-intensive conventional timber framing. It utilizes large poles or posts that are buried into the ground or the foundation. This provides the vertical support for the structure. The girts provide the structure with horizontal support. If you want a barn built and need it done fast, call in the post frame barn experts today.
A pole barn has to be built with strong winds and snow in mind because those are two things in which can destroy it. The following are things that can be added to your pole bar construction in order to make it more durable:
- Side braces
- Truss braces
- Top cord truss braces
A side brace can be installed at the top on each side of the post and run from the post through the wall header at 45 degrees. The side braces are either made from 2×4 or 2×6 lumber. They don’t not cost very much to have installed.
On each sidewall the truss brace is installed. Each truss runs 45 degrees from the post. The truss brace is then fastened on the side of a pole barn. The brace is installed parallel to the truss and is made from 2×4 and also 2×6 lumber.
Top Chord Truss Braces
The top cords are made of 2x4s. They are installed with the purpose of trying the trusses together. They also help the roof withstand strong winds. Top chord braces are installed inside of trusses. These braces are therefore installed diagonally.
