What is a Pole Barn?

A Pole Barn is a type of post-frame construction which uses large poles or posts buried in the ground to provide the key foundation. Pole Barns are engineered to combine efficiency and adaptability and they serve as a quick way to construct a sturdy, reliable structure on your property.

The term “Pole Barn” can be traced all the way back to the 1930’s and the Great Depression. During that time, farmers decided to utilize the most cost-efficient materials they could find in order to build the barns that were necessary to keep their farms in business. The cheapest material they could find were old telephone poles, hence the name Pole Barns.

Don’t Underestimate the Importance of Pole Barn Insulation

Lower Energy Bills:

A lack of or poor insulation is often the main culprit of high energy bills. Keeping outside air out of your pole barn and generated air in, is more energy efficient. This in turn, allows you to save money on your bills.

Keeps Critters, Birds and Bugs Outside:

Once the foam is sprayed into the wall, ceiling or floor cavities, it expands and fills all the available space. This helps prevent pests from entering. Additionally, animals are not attracted to spray foam; it’s not something they chew on or eat.

Prevents Air From Entering or Escaping:

Insulation creates an air seal which helps maintain a constant temperature inside of your pole barn all year long.

Eliminates Future Problems:

Moisture, ice dams, rot, condensation and mold are a few examples of long-term issues that proper insulation can help you avoid.

Residential Pole Barn

While residential pole barns can have some of the same uses as agricultural ones, they are not the same. Residential pole barns are usually detached garages, workshops, extra living space, or storage for vehicles. Lately, there has been a trend of residential pole barns being used as additional living quarters.

Commercial Pole Barn

Lastly, commercial pole barns are cost effective structures that service a variety of needs. They also help establish a professional look to any business or organization. These barns can be used as a warehouse, church, equipment storage, and we’ve even seen them turned into private airplane hangars.
