Q. How is the
A. All of our buildings have a galvanized steel tubing
framework. The "A-Frame Diamond Line" has metal sheeting
on the roof and walls. The "Premium Vinyl" has OSB, a
vapor barrier wrap, and vinyl siding. Vertical metal or
Shingles are available on all vinyl buildings.
Q. What parts of the
building has trim?
A. All rough/raw edges will be trimmed.
Q. Can we get electric
roll up doors?
A. No, our standard roll up doors are not made for use with
an electric opener, but we do offer Wayne Dalton panel garage
doors with electric openers and remotes as a option.
Q. What is the
thickness of a concrete pad?
A. Four (4) inches is standard with a 3,000 PSI.
Q. How long will it
take to get my building/carport?
A. On average, it takes 1-3 weeks beyond your concrete or
ground becoming ready.
Q. Do you offer "Do It
A. Yes. Please contact our office for pricing.
Q. What gauge is your
A. The roof/wall sheeting is 29 gauge and the 2 1/4 square
galvanized steel tubing is 14 gauge.
Q. What is your roof
A. Our standard roof pitch is 3/12, but it can go up 6/12 on
Q. What color options
A. We offer many color options. There are 12 standard
colors and 8 premium colors. You have the option to choose
3 separate colors for you building. Roof, walls and trim
colors may all be different. Check out color choices on our
Q. Which direction is
the sheeting installed?
A. Horizontal sheeting on the sides and roof is standard,
but we offer vertical placement as an option.
Q. What is the largest
building you offer?
A. We offer any length up to 70 feet, however, any structure over 40 feet
in length requires a vertical roof. We build up to 40 feet
wide and no taller than 14 feet in height.
Q. How are buildings
anchored to ground/concrete?
Contractor grade anchors are used to attach the base rail to
concrete. Rebar is used to attach the base rail to the
ground or asphalt.
Q. Is there a warranty
on your buildings?
A. There is a 25 year limited warranty on rust-through of
framing or roofing material, assuming normal user care and
maintenance. There is a one year warranty on workmanship
and garage doors.
Q. What is the major benefit of adding insulation to a metal
A. Insulation provides increased comfort, energy savings,
condensation control, light reflectivity, and noise reduction.
Q. How can rFoil
insulate if it is so thin?
A. It is a common mistake to only consider a material's
R-value when choosing insulation. It's highly possible for
a thinner reflective material to provide better thermal
performance than a thicker non-reflective material, even though
the thicker product will have a higher R-Value.
Q. Does rFoil keep a
substance cool too?
A. A small experiment, using three boxes.
one insulated with
one insulated with
one insulated with
A bag of ice was placed
in each box and its rate of melting was recorded. In the
boxes insulated with fiberglass and foam, the bags of ice to 24
hours to melt. The bag of ice placed in the box lined with
foil took 4 days to melt. The test clearly exposes the
fallacy of the r-value test. A higher r-value does not
necessarily mean a better insulator.
Q. Will rFoil prevent
condensation? If so, how?
A. Yes, rFoil is an outstanding solution to condensation
problems. The thermal break provided by the air space
prevents warm, moist air inside the building from interacting
with cold air on the same surface. When installed
correctly, with secure seams, condensation will not occur on the
surface of the rFoil.
Q. I am building a
warehouse that will not be heated or cooled. Do I need to
put any insulation in the building?
A. To avoid heat gain in the summer as well as condensation
problems inside the building, it is necessary to insulate a
metal building. The fact that the warehouse is not
air-conditioned is even more reason to install a radiant
