ASSURE STRENGTH, DURABILITY You could be a "sidewalk superintendent" for a hundred post frame buildings and never be aware of the many off-site activities, processes, tests and standards that assure structural integrity and durability. Seventeen (17) separate specification and standards established by seven (7) different "standards issuing" organizations impact virtually every facet of post frame construction. In brief, here's the behind-the-scene story. To assure lasting protection against decay and insect infestation, lumber that will be in soil contact is pressure treated with preservatives in accordance with standards developed by the American Wood Preservers Association (AWPA).  Every load is expected to meet these specifications. Having boring samples analyzed for degree of preservative penetration isn't required, but it means you get the durability you have every right to expect.  Nationally recognized guidelines assure the strength and structural integrity of every post frame building we erect. National Forest Products Association standards specify the loads that various species and dimensions of lumber will support under compression, tension and deflection. The American National Standards Institute specifies minimum load requirements for designing any building, subject to local building code regulations. Standards developed by the Truss Plate Institute ensure the strength of structural components joined by steel plates, now widely accepted as the superior method of fastening in truss fabrication. Still, there is no substitute for verifying the true strength of a new roof truss design and/or one in which an untested species of wood is used, than by loading a prototype truss in various ways until the truss fails. Adaptability, durability and economy make today's modern post frame building the logical choice for your new place of business or personal structure. Post & frame is the clear winner when compared to other conventional types of construction; for choice of architectural style, for time and cost to complete, for time and cost to expand, and,  most importantly, for square foot cost usable space! .
