- We use 5”x5” or 6”x6” solid sawn treated posts. These posts are typically set in Post-Protectors for a life-time of protection. We use 2x6 perimeter studs and 2x4 internal studs, set on 2’ centers.
- We use factory-built, engineered trusses, set on 2’ centers. Typical ceiling height is 8’ or 9’, with optional cathedral ceilings and boxed ceilings.
- We use R-11 reflective insulation under the metal. The posts and 2x6 perimeter studs create a 7 ½” deep wall cavity, which allows another R-19 to R-40 insulation to be used. The ceiling will typically have an additional R-35 of insulation.
- We use 29 or 26 gauge metal roof and siding. Our metal is #1 primary American-made with a 40-year manufacturer’s limited warranty. We have several colors to choose from; color charts and color samples are available for approval. Insurance discounts are typically available for metal roofing, which will provide years of savings.
