How Are Pioneer Buildings Made?
Pioneer pole buildings are built to the highest quality standards. The company’s careful selection of materials ensures that their structures maintain their appearance and functionality for years or decades.
All buildings are constructed on-site, and the company has its own team of experienced construction workers who will get the job done right the first time.
Let’s take a closer look at the anatomy of a Pioneer building…
The posts used in Pioneer buildings are set at least 36″ below the floor line and run to the top of the roof trusses. Each post is one solid column and are set at eight feet on center. Columns can be set closer, depending on where the doors are located.
Pioneer uses at least 3000 PSI concrete mix for footings, depending on the design and size of the building. Footings have a standard depth of 36″ from the floor line.
Ground Contact Wood
Any lumber or posts that come in contact with the ground are pressure treated to a point where there’s a lifetime warranty against decay. Pioneer’s poles are 50% more than lumber supplied by other yards.
Any structural wood used by the company will be #1 Southern Yellow Pine MSR (Machine Stress Rated). This is the strongest wood you can buy in the construction industry.
Side and Roof Purlins
Pioneer’s purlins are made with #1 and #2 spruce 2x4s. Purlins are set 24″ on center to keep splitting to a minimum at the connections.
Roofing and Siding
The exteriors of Pioneer’s buildings are fitted with the company’s Frontier Panel, which has a limited lifetime warranty. Panels are heat-roll formed and painted to your liking, with 17 colors available.
The siding and roof of the building is fastened with weather-tight screws, and trimmed at exposed connections and edges.
If you don’t like the Frontier Panel option, you can choose shingled roofing and vinyl siding instead.
All roof trusses are set at either 4′ or 2′ on center. Trusses are pre-engineered with loading that far exceeds state building codes. Pioneer offers the strongest roof load in the entire industry.
Pioneer offers your choice of overhead, entry and sliding doors.
All entry doors are pre-hung, residential grade and made with insulated steel. These doors also have keyed knobs backed by a 10-year warranty, and a post on each side.
Overhang doors come with panels that are backed by lifetime warranty. These doors are made with galvanized steel, and feature steel bearing rollers and torsion style springs.
Solid doors are available in both split and solid forms, with many sizes to choose from.
