Common Questions About Post Frame Buildings in West Virginia

Post Frame Building in West Virginia

Any large building project requires a significant amount of research, planning, and preparation. West Virginia pole buildings and post frame buildings are no exception. If you are interested in constructing a pole building in West Virginia or a West Virginia post frame building but still have questions––that’s no problem. You can always contact us at MQS Structures directly with any questions you might have, but we have also compiled this list of common questions and answers that may be helpful.

Do I Need a Building Permit for My Post Frame Building in West Virginia?

The answer to this question is almost always yes. However, building codes and permit processes vary depending on the location. It is best to check with both the city and the county where you plan to build. With most pole barn builders in West Virginia, the responsibility for acquiring permits belongs to the client and not the builder.

Are There Standard Sizes for Post Frame Buildings or Barns?

Post frame buildings don’t really have “standard” sizes. You can build as big or as small as you want, as long as it fits on your property. However, because building materials do come in standard sizes, we recommend building in any combination of common lengths, widths, and heights. This will help ensure that you make the best use of the materials purchased for your building. See our standard lengths and widths chart.

How Long Does the Building Process Take?

At MQS Structures, it generally takes between three to ten weeks from contract signing until the building is completed. This primarily depends on how busy our crews are and how big your build is. Once our crew has begun construction, an average-sized build takes less than a week to complete. Other West Virginia pole barn builders will vary in lead time and construction speed.

Do I Have to Prepare the Site for My Pole Building in West Virginia on My Own?

Site preparation is rarely included in standard build pricing because initial site conditions can vary significantly from one client to another. Nonetheless, most West Virginia pole barn builders can do site preparation for you at an additional fee.

What Can I Do to Keep Construction Costs Down?

The primary ways we suggest to keep costs down include:

  • Choose from the common lengths, widths, and heights displayed on our chart above.
  • Use 29ga metal for both siding and roofing on your building if the conditions allow you to do so.
  • Build your roof with a standard 4/12 pitch.
  • Install only the doors and windows you need. Additional doors and windows can dramatically increase construction costs.
