|Wood and Steel Buildings…The Perka Advantage — 20 Great Reasons To Buy From Perka
- Wood is NOT a Conductor of hot or cold and energy costs are rising through the roof! YOU SAVE MONEY!
- Our clips are welded on! YOU SAVE MONEY!
- Wood allows for easier door and window installation. Hammer and nails are easier than a blowtorch or welder. You can install the openings whenever and wherever you want. YOU GET CONVENIENCE AND SAVE TIME & MONEY!
- Because wood purlins and girts are spaced at 24” inch centers the interior is ready to be finished. EASY TO WORK WITH!
- Also with steel purlins, Tek screws and washers are used to attach metal and in 5 years or so the screws and washers may leak. Wood will not leak because the wood will swell to seal the hole. MAINTENANCE FREE!
- It is easier finding carpenters to put up a wood building. Steel erectors cost more and carpenters are very creative. EASIER and LESS COSTLY!
- In the event of wind up-lift, snow or ice loads or fire, you’ll never lose a whole building. You may lose a bay but that it. If a fire breaks out in an all steel building, because the metal twists and bends, the steel purlins pull the other frames in collapsing the whole building. Perka Buildings have purlins and girts in wood – that burn up and allow the roof section to collapse but not the whole structure. AND this actually vents the heat and the Perka steel frame remains untouched. The frame survives and after the clean up, the building will be ready for new wood purlins and girts to be replaced and the new exterior to be put on. A SAFER BETTER INVESTMENT!
- Because we use steel frames for the main superstructure, Perka Buildings can have wider and longer bay spacings than wood buildings. MORE FLEXIBLE and PRACTICAL!
- Perka steel frames have longer and wider bays, we have fewer columns and this means less foundation “holes” than wood (pole) buildings. AND columns sitting on piers are always better than wood poles in the ground. Pole buildings do not meet code! MORE DURABLE!
- Design flexibility; get the building you want and need, not one that might work for you. If you need more – ASK! (ie. Inside width and height can be made to the inch and the length is endless. WE ADJUST FOR YOU!
- You get anchor bolt plans in less than 5 days, engineered data drawings in 7-10 days and the building is delivered in 4-6 weeks. If you need it sooner, we will work something out with you. FAST NEIGHBORLY SERVICE!
- Exterior choices are unlimited. By turning the wood purlins to a vertical position you can virtually add ANY finish you want. Just like a roof/wall in your house! You can have the nicest looking building in your area – with STEEL inside! Instead of looking like a “shed” it can look just like your house or existing business. EASY TO WORK WITH and FINISH!
