Benefits of Post-Frame Building Solutions are Strong, Flexible and Affordable.

Post-Frame buildings (Pole Barns) are an amazing, cost effective way to build a quality commercial, agricultural, or even residential building.

Here are three reasons for you to consider a post frame building for your next building project.

Rochester & Syracuse Pole Barn builders have long recognized the extraordinary flexibility of post frame building design for commercial, agricultural and residential property owners alike.

Post Frame Construction is cost-effective and easy to add elements like overhead doors, overhangs, a reinforced snow-bearing roof (something much desired in the Rochester and Finger Lakes upstate New York region, a Porch, anything you can imagine.

Modern pole barn construction design does not require interior load-bearing walls for support so you can design the interior of the building to suit your specific needs.  inside however you want. Another post-frame building advantage is that supporting columns can be placed in such a way as to make it easy to add additional doors and windows as your needs change.  Post-Frame building solutions also offer a variety of exterior options beyond traditional metal covering, including brick, wood, vinyl, block and more.


Post-frame buildings are in many ways stronger than buildings produced using other construction methods:

  • Post-frame building are more stable and wind-resistant.
  • A post-frame building has the ability to flex and bend under stress rather than crack, crumble, or collapse like other structures would.
  • The nature of the horizontal connectors in a post-frame building create a strong box shape than traditional structures, giving it the ability to withstand years of stress.


Post-frame building construction in the Rochester and Syracuse areas is fast and efficient.  As a result, there is significantly lower labor costs. Post-frame building materials, typically wood, are much less expensive than steel or concrete block. Adding steel siding or metal roofing further lowers your construction costs and long term cost of ownership.

It’s no wonder that Post-frame construction is such a popular building choice in the Rochester, New York and Finger Lakes area. And we’ve only just touched on the benefits of post-frame buildings. The bottom line is that if you need a new building: commercial, agricultural, maybe a detached residential garage, you just can’t do better than consider post-frame buildings as a solution to your needs.
