Unfortunately, too many post frame building owners are either unable or unwilling to spot the differences between a well-designed pole building and one which barely (or doesn’t) meet construction standards.
And when things go awry (as can happen in construction), all too often the fingers get pointed everywhere except at the person who did not do their homework prior to purchase.
“The Ultimate Post Frame Building Experience™”
Long time readers will recall my saga of purchasing a Jaguar XJ6 in 1988 (https://www.hansenpolebuildings.com/2011/12/pole-building-options-and-jaguars/).
I wanted ‘it all’ and was willing to pay the price in order to get it all.
When we at Hansen Pole Buildings talk about delivering “The Ultimate Post Frame Building Experience” we are absolutely serious about it.
It is why we want to talk personally with every client, not just send a plethora of emails and text messages back-and-forth.
Why? Because none of us know…what we don’t know.
When I am shopping for a big ticket item – I want to speak to experts, and I expect expert advice. Just like the dashboard switch on my Jaguar, I don’t want to find out later on there is something I could have (or worse should have) done to have had the ideal end result.
I am always heart broken when a client goes elsewhere and orders a new building.
Because I know in my heart-of-hearts they will end up getting less of a building than they expected or deserved, and paying too much for what they settled for. Sadly, companies with common names in the pole barn industry rely on their name to sell buildings, and not on the quality of their product. They do a great job at marketing, I’ll give them that much credit. But is the pole building company one who quickly and responsibly services your needs? Do you get your quote back without so much as a conversation about what you think you need? And do the sales staff really try to fit the building to your needs, and not shove your needs into one of their standard buildings? Think about it!
Regardless of whom you ultimately pick as your new building supplier – begin in the right frame of mind. Throw out any preconceived notions about what the dimensions of the building ‘should’ be, and instead, focus on what is needed to create the ideal dream building – one which will function as ably 10 or 40 years from now, as it does the day it is completed. And make darn sure the pole building supplier is designing your building to fit you, not you to their building.
Share with your Building Designer what problems your new post frame building will solve for you. Discuss what the building absolutely must house and be used for, as well as what it might also do for you. And not just for today – try to get out the crystal ball and look to the future.
Engage The Ultimate Post Frame Building Experience™.
You’ll be glad you did.
