Buy High-Quality Equestrian Steel Buildings from THE BOSS

If you own horses, you already know that keeping them fed and housed is a big job requiring tons of time and effort. And a significant part of that is finding the right kind of facilities. Horses need a warm, dry shelter sized large enough to comfortably accommodate them.

Typically, barns, stables, and equestrian buildings were constructed from wood. But with the skyrocketing price of stick-built buildings, many modern structures are now built using steel. Metal buildings offer the strength and adaptability to handle the demands of horse ownership. Whether you own a single horse or run a full-sized horse training facility, metal equestrian buildings will always be the go-to solution to keep your animals safe from the elements.

Different Types of Equestrian Buildings

The term equestrian building can be used to describe several different building types. These structures cover a wide range of jobs, from barns to loafing sheds and everything in between. To give you an idea of the many applications for these structures, let’s break them down into a few popular building types:

  • Steel Stables : Stables can be more than just barns. These modern buildings are often built and customized with multiple stalls, cleaning facilities, plumbing, electricity, and everything a horse trainer needs to care for numerous animals.
  • Steel Barns : A steel barn is an excellent fit for numerous applications. These durable buildings function well for storing feed, protecting heavy equipment, or housing horses and livestock. They can also be finished to make excellent homes and farmhouses!
  • Steel Riding Arenas : Some structures, like our clear span buildings, can be built at large sizes with no need for internal supports. This makes them perfect for use as riding arenas and training facilities.
  • Loafing Sheds : Both horses and livestock need a comfortable spot to shelter from the sun in warmer months and a warm, dry place in the winter. Loafing sheds are fantastic for keeping your animals protected year-round.

Roofing Styles for Equestrian Buildings

When you purchase an equestrian building from Boss Buildings, several roofing options are available. These roof types offer different aesthetics and varying levels of elemental protection. Your options include:

  • Regular Roofs : A regular roof is the most economical option and features rounded corners and horizontally arranged paneling. It’s an excellent option for those that live in regions with minimal wind and rainfall totals.
  • A-Frame Roofs : A-frame roofs look more like traditional buildings, with overhanging awnings, a sharp roof peak, and horizontal panels. It’s a fantastic mid-level choice designed to hold up well against high winds but with minimal rainfall.
  • Vertical Roofs : Our most durable selection, vertical roofs, combines the best design elements of A-frame roofs with vertically oriented paneling. This clever design allows rain, snow, and debris to fall harmlessly away from your structure, keeping the roof pristine for years to come.

Why Equestrian Buildings Are Better When Built from Steel

There are many different construction methods out there. Whether it’s wood, brick, or concrete, each type has its own advantages and drawbacks. Except one. No matter the application, steel structures can beat out the competition in terms of:

  • Size : At a certain size threshold, it becomes too difficult or prohibitively expensive to construct a building from wood. But steel buildings can be built at enormous sizes, offering the room you need to comfortably house your animals.
  • Durability : Wooden buildings are naturally susceptible to decay. These structures are weakened by rust, mold, mildew, and pests throughout their life. And if you don’t spend a considerable amount of time and resources maintaining them, they will inevitably fall apart. However, metal structures are constructed from galvanized steel, making them naturally resistant to these elemental forces.
  • Customization Options : Unless you’re an engineer by trade, you’ll be hard-pressed to get the same level of customization from wooden structures as you would steel. Steel buildings can be adapted, designed, and tested before they’re constructed, giving you an unparalleled level of customizability.
  • Insurance Rates : Most insurance providers base their rates on the relative danger risks of a particular structure type. And since steel buildings are some of the most durable structures on the market, the coverage rates surrounding them are, on average, lower than other buildings.

Customization Options for Metal Equestrian Buildings

When you purchase an equestrian barn from Boss Buildings, you’ll have many customization options available. Almost every aspect of these structures can be changed or adapted to suit your particular needs. Take a look at just a few of the many customization options you’ll be able to choose from:

  • Size : Whether it’s a small equipment shed or an enormous industrial building, you’ll have complete control to design the structure at a size that works for you.
  • Roof Styles : As we’ve mentioned, you’ll get to choose between three different roofing options, including:
    1. Regular Roofs : A regular roof building features rounded corners and horizontal panels. It’s a cost-effective option that’s great for mild climates with minimal wind and rainfall.
    2. A-Frame Roofs : A-frame roofs feature more house-like awnings, with a sharp roof pitch and horizontal paneling. This choice is excellent for withstanding high winds but minimal rainfall.
    3. Vertical Roofs : Our vertical roofing options are the cream of the crop and best suited for taking on more extreme environments. They feature vertically arranged panels that help the roof remain free from snow and debris and are an outstanding long-lasting roofing choice.
  • Colors : Metal structures don’t have to be lifeless and dull! By adding a splash of color to your building, you can transform an ordinary structure into something truly eye-catching. And with our wide selection of color choices, you’ll surely find an option that works for you and your new building!
  • Doors and Windows : No enclosed structure is complete without doors and windows. And with our customization options, you’ll be able to add as many as you need. From standard entryway doors to garage doors and everything in between, we’ve got you covered!
  • Anchors : The anchor type used for your structure will entirely depend on your chosen foundation. For dirt foundations, our installation teams use auger-like anchors that are screwed directly into the soil. However, with concrete foundations, we’ll use bolt-like anchors that are drilled into your concrete pad.
  • 14- & 12-Gauge Framing : As the industry standard, most residential metal structures are built using 14-gauge steel framing. However, for some regions that regularly see high winds and heavy snows, you may want to upgrade to thicker 12-gauge steel framing.
  • 29- & 26-Gauge Roofing : In addition to thicker framing, if you want to prep your structure to withstand violent weather patterns, you might want to reinforce your roof with thicker 26-gauge roofing panels.
  • Certifications : The certification process is a system that ensures a structure can hold up to the average snow and wind loads in a given location. In addition to security, many local government authorities require metal structures to be certified before issuing building permits.

Crucial Things to Consider When Purchasing an Equestrian Building

Buying a new metal structure for your horses is a significant purchase that requires a bit of planning and logistics. And we’re here to help every step of the way! So, to ensure a smooth experience, we’ve put together a list of noteworthy considerations before you buy.

  • Location : You’ll need to have a good idea of where you want to place your structure and plan accordingly. This location will need to be level, accessible, and clear of debris. As well, if you choose a concrete foundation, you’ll want to make sure that your slab is laid and cured before installation day.
  • Permissions : As we’ve mentioned, most localities will require property owners to secure building permits before building any permanent structure. You’ll want to work closely with your local authorities to ensure that your structure is constructed legally. Failure to do so can result in significant fines and penalties.
  • Design : How do you want your building to look? What use will it serve? These critical questions can help you better design and customize your structure. Whatever your style, our wide range of customization options will allow you to make a building truly your own.
  • Windows and Doors : An important aspect of planning your building is deciding how many doors and windows you’ll need. We have several door options available, but you may want to plan accordingly if you choose to install custom doors or windows.

The Many Benefits of Equestrian Buildings

There is a wide range of advantages to choosing metal structures for your next equestrian building. So many, in fact, that we could go on for days about it! But to save time, we’ve boiled them down to just a few of our favorites.

  • Easy Maintenance : Unlike wooden alternatives, steel structures are naturally resistant to moisture, mold, mildew, and pests. This resistance allows them to go for long periods without repair or maintenance. Simply keep your roof free of debris, pressure wash it once a season, and you’ll be set for decades!
  • Abundance of Space : Metal structures can be built to offer as much interior space as you need. This makes them incredibly practical for larger venues, equipment warehouses, and riding facilities.
  • Multipurpose : The sheer flexibility of these structures gives them the power to adapt to almost any application. They work just as well in agricultural settings as in commercial applications. You’ll be hard-pressed to find a job our metal structures are not ready to handle!
  • Affordable : Steel structures are a cost-effective construction choice designed to save you money before, during, and long after it’s been built.
  • Fire Resistance : Steel structures are capable of withstanding temperatures upwards of 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit. And while no building is genuinely fireproof, a steel structure will always be a safer bet than a wooden one.
  • Pest Resistance : Unlike wood, steel buildings offer no natural food source or bedding for insects and rodents. And where many wooden structures can suffer immense damage from creepy crawlies, metal buildings won’t have a problem.
  • Durability : There are few construction materials as strong as steel. This material naturally flexes when faced with external forces, allowing it to hold considerable amounts of weight that could destroy a similar-sized wooden building.

Equestrian Buildings and Their Prices

Boss Buildings is proud to offer a wide variety of metal buildings to suit any need. Whether for the backyard or the farm, these structures are designed to be a durable, affordable option! However, these buildings are complex, and their prices are subject to change based on several factors.

  • Costs of Raw Steel : The price for raw steel fluctuates often based on public demand, supplies, shipping, and logistical issues that may inhibit transportation.
  • Customizations and Reinforcements : When you build your structure, you’ll have access to a comprehensive suite of customization options. These options allow you to change almost every aspect of a building, from the color to the thickness of the framing. These customizations often require additional components and extra steel that will increase the final cost of your structure.
  • Location : Boss Buildings uses a network of manufacturers to ensure that you can get a quality structure no matter where you call home. However, the manufacturers in your region may have slightly different pricing, which can affect the price of your new structure.
  • Installation : If you live in an area that is remote or difficult for installation crews to reach, it may incur additional costs that will affect your building’s price.
