WHY STEEL FRAME?

Life Span

You might wonder why you'd choose a steel frame building over post frame, especially because of the quality and durability of Vap Construction's post frame buildings. The main reason is the life span of the building. Though steel frame buildings are considerably more expensive than post frame buildings, the fact that they're built with steel and not wood means they can last well over a century, while post frame buildings have a life span of around 60 years. If budget is not an issue and you're looking for a building that will last well beyond your lifetime, steel frame is your best bet.

Building Size

Because of the weight and structure of the lumber used to construct post frame buildings, industry regulations prohibit them from being wider than 80 feet. While that smaller size is perfectly fine for most people, it can be limiting for larger-scale applications. Steel frame buildings can be nearly unlimited in size, spanning hundreds of feet in both length and width. For industrial manufacturing operations, large office buildings, riding arenas, and so many other use-cases, steel frame buildings provide the needed size flexibility to fully maximize your building.

CUSTOMER REVIEW

Vap Construction was great to work with. They built a large barn for us in 2020. The design process was easy and the quality of the construction is outstanding. The crew was friendly, efficient, and were able to make adjustments when needed. We are pretty proud of our big red barn
