The temperate maritime climate means wet, snowy winters offset by hot, humid summers. For pole barn owners in Washington D.C. that means:
• Roofing for pole barns should be prepared to handle low to moderate snowfall and hail
• Pole building contractors in Washington D.C., or the party responsible for building the pole barn, should take extra care to ensure that heating is effective and safe for long winters
• Pole barns should be well-insulated and ventilated to battle tough heat waves during the summer
