Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How does Pole Building construction differ from a block foundation building?
A: A pole building is actually a stronger building because the poles are in the ground 38" and go all the way
up the wall for continued strength of the building.
Q: Do you build block foundation buildings?
A: Yes, we are the only company in the area that builds both pole buildings and block foundation buildings. Our block
block foundation buildings exceed local building code standards are built with the same attention to detail and
as our pole buildings.
Q: How do I check out the contractors that I am having quote my building?
A: 1. All contractors should be insured, bonded, and carry Workers Compensation.
2. The contractor should be licensed in the city or county where the project is being built.
3. Ask if they belong to the Better Business Bureau. If not, why not? Check them out on www.bbb.org.
4. Insist on at least 20 references.
5. The contractor should be able to take you to past projects so that you can see the type of quality that they offer.
6. Call your local building department and ask them about the performance of your proposed contractor.
7. Ask for a list of material suppliers that your contractor uses. This is very important to find out if the contractor is
paying his accounts as agreed. If the contractor doesn't pay for material delivered, you could be responsible for
material delivered to your address.
8. Make sure your contractor spells out each detail of the project in your contract. Example: The type of shingles,
windows, overhead doors, lumber, etc. Make sure that you obtain the manufacturer's warranties on all installed
9. Make sure that the contract outlines a detailed payment plan. Example: 15% down when the contract is signed,
50% down when the project starts, 25% when the rough framing is completed, balance due upon finish inspection
by the Building Inspector. Note: The above could change if the project includes custom windows or specially
designed trusses. In that case, it would be customary to obtain at least the cost of the the custom material that
is being ordered plus 10%.
10. Always compare Apples to Apples.
Q: Who obtains the building permit- me or the contractor?
A: All contractors should obtain building permits. This is very important. THIS MEANS THAT IF YOU, THE
PROPERTY OWNER, OBTAIN THE BUILDING PERMITS, YOU SHIFT THE RESPONSIBILITY FROM THE
CONTRACTOR TO YOU! YOU WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR SCHEDULING ALL INSPECTIONS. ALSO, IF
THERE ARE ANY VIOLATIONS TO THE BUILDING CODE, YOU WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR NOTIFYING THE
CONTRACTOR TO CORRECT THE PROBLEM SO THAT YOUR PROJECT CAN GET A FINAL INSPECTION!
