The Best Metal Barns Come From THE BOSS!

Metal barns are versatile outdoor farm buildings for storing grains, crops, produce, equipment, and animal feed or for protecting your animals from the weather and other elements. Our metal farm buildings are versatile for your specific needs with customizable color options, doors/frame-outs sizes, insulation, height, width, lean-to’s, and more. Boss Buildings’ prefabricated steel barn kits are virtually maintenance-free (unlike wood barns or pole barn kits) and made from 14 GA/12 GA steel which is perhaps one of the most earth-friendly construction options.

BARNS BUYING GUIDE

INSTALLATION AND SITE PREP FOR METAL BARNS

Preparing the Base

The base is the ground on which we will install your custom-designed steel barn kit. This base or ground needs to be properly leveled within 3 inches front to back and side to side. Not leveling the base for our installation crew could result in a hold-up in the installation work, and may even possibly incur you an extra trip fee. Please remember that Boss Buildings currently does not offer groundwork, so you will have to do the ground leveling by yourself.

Concrete Pad

Other than in the state of Florida, in all other states, the concrete pad should measure the same as the building frame. In Florida, though, only the width of the two would vary slightly; the concrete pad needs to have a 3/4 inch more width than the building frames width. Remember that the length of the frame is 1’ shorter than the roof. Also, your concrete pad needs to have a perfect square or rectangular shape. The building and zoning departments of different areas will have different regulations for the concrete pad, depending primarily on the climatic conditions of your installation site. As a metal barn buyer, you need to understand these requirements from your own county departments.

Barn Delivery and Installation

Our process of delivering and installing your barn building is straightforward. Once you have decided on the barn design, or have an idea of the type of red barn kit you want to buy, call us or chat with us on our website or on our Facebook page. We will share with you all the options and custom-design the steel barn for your needs. Once you pay the deposit, you are on your way to the metal shop, where we will coordinate the design and fabrication of your metal barn kit. Once you are ready with your base and permits, we will schedule a day and time to complete the barn installation.
Before our team arrives, kindly ensure that the base for the planned barn is all cleaned up and leveled out, and thus ready for your barn. We will come prepared with everything necessary for the barn installation. Our team will take care of fixing the anchors and putting together the entire metal structure. If there is a requirement of certification for your metal barn, do inform us at the earliest so that we can come prepared to conduct the installation accordingly to your needs.

Site Preparation Checklist

  • The area on which the barn has to be installed needs to be clear of all dirt and debris and any obstructing construction.
  • The ground has to be leveled properly, keeping in mind to level the ground to within 3 inches front to back and side to side. If we prepare the ground for you, it will cost you extra; this service is only applicable in very few specific cases when our crew doesn’t have any other building on their scheduled run.
  • You have to keep the installation site easily accessible for our team. If the distance is too much between the site and the installation truck, it will make it that much harder and more time-consuming for our team to finish the installation.

Metal Barns are Great for Agriculture Storage and Animal Shelter

Metal barns are durable & robust farm buildings that can be used to store your farm produce and protect your livestock on the farm. These pre-engineered barns can be custom-made to shelter different farm animals like cattle, hogs, horses, etc. You can even plan a dedicated storage space for hay, crops, animal fodder, and equipment. These prefab barns not only store agricultural products and shelter animals but can also be used to protect farm equipment, vehicles, and large tractors from outdoor elements. The structural strength and fire resistance nature of steel makes them an excellent option for animal sheltering and storage space compared to other alternatives. In a nutshell, metal barns are versatile structures and the perfect solution for all your agricultural storage needs. Call us today at (336) 673-3065 to get a free quote on your dream barn building.

CUSTOMIZING YOUR BARN

By choosing Boss Buildings, you have the freedom to design your metal barn exactly the way you want! You’re in the driver’s seat, and it’s up to you to select everything from prefab barn dimensions, to roof type, to the gauge of your steel, trim, colors, doors, windows, certification requirements, and more!

Building Dimensions

How big does your metal barn need to be? You can choose a smaller steel barn, or you can go with a width of all the way up to 70’ for the center building. You can also choose pretty much any length you like. Need your prefab metal barn to be taller so you can accommodate a tractor or other big items? We can provide what you need! The typical lean-to’s are 10’ to 12’ to wide, but we can design engineered lean-to’s up to 24’ wide.

Steel Gauge

14-gauge is the common standard for steel barn framing, but you also have the option of choosing thicker 12-gauge steel for an even more durable steel barn. You choose the gauge of your barn’s metal roofing and siding, too, which by default is 29-GA. Remember that certification requirements beyond 65 PSF may sometimes need building with 12 GA tubing mandatorily.

Certification

Does your location require certification of metal structures like barns? We can design your metal barn to meet any necessary wind or snow loads. And even if certification isn’t required, you can still choose a certified metal building for greater peace of mind.

Gables, Trim, and Anchors

Add gables to the front or back for greater reinforcement and a finished look. Protective J-trim can be used to cover the edges of your panels. Plus, we have anchors to secure your metal barn to almost any type of installation surface, even level ground!

Colors

You can go with a more traditional “barn red,” or you can go your own way and choose from among our other attractive color options for your roof panels, side paneling, and trim. You can even choose a two-tone wainscot look, if you like.

WHAT ARE SOME USES OF A BARN-STYLE METAL BUILDING

A steel barn is much more versatile than barns made with more “traditional” methods such as wood. Traditionally, pole barns have been used as equestrian buildings and horse stables. Metal barns too, can be used as horse stables and equestrian facilities. However, there is much more to a steel barn building than just horse arenas.

Horse Barn or Horse Stable

Yes, steel barn kits make excellent buildings for keeping your horses, as well as tack and other supplies safe from the weather and other elements.

Riding Arena

How about a larger steel barn with covered space for riding while being protected from the elements? Your beloved horse(s) don’t have to be out in the heat/snow, and neither do you need to.

Dairy Barn

Barns aren’t just for horses; they’re also for cows and other livestock. Use your steel barn as a dairy production or egg production facility. You can temperature control your building and use the available insulation types to increase the efficiency of temperature control.

Livestock Breeding Facility

Cows, mules, hogs, sheep, cattle, poultry, and other livestock can be safely housed inside a steel barn building. The metal building would provide a hygienic and healthy environment for the animals and would also keep them away from dangers like predator attacks.

Hay Barn

Need a clean, safe, and dry place to store your agricultural products like crops, fruits, grains, and hay? Our barns are perfect for hay storage purposes.

Shelter for Tractors or Other Farm Equipment

Design a barn large enough to accommodate your tractor, combine, or whatever other equipment you need to keep under shelter.

Garage & Multipurpose Storage

Don’t just house your farm vehicles; park, protect, and secure your personal vehicles too! Also great for RVs, boats, or other large vehicles. Need some outdoor storage space for the stuff you can no longer fit in your house? Use our lean-to barn buildings as a garage or even a makeshift office.

METAL BARNS ARE REALLY BETTER BARNS

What’s so great about a metal barn? Pretty much everything! Here are just a few features that make a steel barn from BOSS BUILDINGS a better choice than any stick-build or pole barn:

Durability

Steel barns aren’t susceptible to rot like wood, and they endure constant use. They also provide superior protection from rain, snow, wind, even lightning.

No Threat from Pests or Fire

A properly installed metal building safeguards you and your valuables from termites, pests, rodents, snakes, and other small animals that can cause a nuisance in your belongings. What about fire? Steel is incombustible. Also, steel does not melt at temperatures typically encountered in a building fire.

Customize & Expand More Easily

Steel buildings offer flexible design and more usable interior space than wooden barns. Steel structures are easier to adapt or expand with your future needs, too.

Easy to Maintain

Wooden barns require painting or staining, and need repainting or restaining every few years. Metal barns aren’t covered with traditional paint, and their colors won’t fade or peel over time. Metal barns are a snap to clean, too. Just hose it out with a pressure washer, and you’re done!

Barns in Every Size & Shape, at the Right Price!

Our steel barn prices are simply the best! Why? Because we source all of our buildings direct from the manufacturer! Your individual steel barn cost will vary based on a few factors, including the size, roof style, customization options, and your installation location. If you have a specific metal barn pricing question just give us a call, we’ll be happy to help!

And here’s another way THE BOSS is here to help. We don’t make you worry about how to get the prefab barn components to your site, or how to get your steel barn building put up. We include delivery and installation in all of our service areas, at no extra cost to you! Just make sure that your installation site is level ahead of time, and let Boss Buildings handle the rest! Like we said, delivery and installation comes standard with our metal barns, but if you’re looking for a way to save even more we can provide you with a custom-built prefab metal barn kit that you pick up and install on your own. All the building materials you’ll need will be  supplied, you’ll just need some willing hands to help you put up your building. If you’d like to learn more about metal barn kit options, just reach out to THE BOSS!

Some Handy Tips to Help You Get Ready

One of the first things you should decide is how you plan to use your steel barn. Consider how much space you’ll need to accommodate your animals, supplies, or whatever else. Factor in the length, width, and height of these items so you’re sure to get a large enough metal barn. In hindsight, most customers wish they’d chosen a bigger building, not a smaller one. Once you’ve made your decision and placed your order, here a few things you can do to get your site ready for installation:

  • Obtain any needed building permits, if required in your area
  • Make sure your site is level
  • Mark any buried utility lines on or near your site
  • Clear enough space around your site (at least 3’ on all sides) so our crew will have sufficient room to work
  • Make sure to let us know which foundation you’ll be installing on, so we can be sure to bring the correct anchors
