Wood Pole Barns & Log Cabins - Northeast Division
"We had an awesome overall experience with National Barn. Courteous, friendly and experienced workers are who we dealt with before, during and after construction. The onsite staff were very clean and did a quick and impeccable job. The construction of this building is very well built. We just had Hurricane Irene 2011 whip through New York with 75 MPH winds and it's still standing perfectly! Thank you for the wonderful barn that will probably out stand us!"
National Barn Company-Northeast is now making its traditional barn wood buildings available across ALL of its advertised territories. Wooden barn board siding is not only the traditional choice for barns across the United States but also the natural choice. Barns have been built in the United States and particularly the Northeast for over a recorded 378 years, beginning in the year 1632! Only up until an approximately 60 years ago did we trust anything other than wood to blanket the outside of our barns.
The traditional barn board measures a true four quarter (1 inch) to 1 1/8 inches in thickness by a true 8", 10", 12", and even 14" and greater width, plank style siding. The pine barn board used on any new National Barn Company wooden building in the northeast, will be cut historically accurate in dimension and built onto your pole barn in the same historical manner which barns in America were constructed, dating back a full 100 years before George Washington, our very first president was born. That is our American tradition!
Why Choose a Wood Pole Barn?
So why is it better? It’s entirely better because the legacy of wood sided buildings has already been established for three and three quarter centuries. We know that over time a pole barn sided in wood will still remain without another needed covering. When a barn built before 1899 fails there is a great likelihood that the roof is to blame and not the sides. The barn boards survive so well over time, that many are recycled, then re-milled into flooring, cabinets, and furniture (you can purchase these exact products at our sister company’s web site www.patriax.com). This means, that a board once milled during the ages from before Pres. Washington and past Pres. Lincoln’s time is readily repurchased, reused, and recycled. Man made materials to include vinyl siding, painted steel, asbestos siding, and aluminum are “new” products compared to wood. Some of those aforementioned have already come and gone as viable ways to cover a structure. Not Wood!
Are Wood Pole Barns Affordable?
What comes to mind when considering a wood sided barn is, can I afford it? Yes, you can. There has been speculation over wood as a viable use in the consideration of expense. With the tragic shutting down of many American sawmills over the last century, much due to the prevailing foreign trade, we have come accustom to cheap imported products, full of attractive profiles, and paint coverings. So yes, there has been a move toward these products and they have grown to be accepted during our country’s recent past, taking some steam from the roots of barn building. Your new National Barn will look and function with tradition. Stains and sealers come in a wide variety, and are not a necessary addition to your wooden building. They are available to be chosen on an individual basis.
It Only Looks Better with Age!
Our professional recommendation when it comes to the preservation and overall aesthetic look of your pole barn can be summarized in one word. Patina. Patina in wood is the “Natural” darkening, lightening, weathering and overall luster that wood will gain with time as its only ingredient. For instance, could you picture the Statue of Liberty the day it was built? It wasn’t green. In wood, the barn boards on the day of construction will appear newly sawed from our very own sawmill, with deep, rich colors taking shape over decades. It is an ever changing natural process that is as unique as your own personality. A building's life cycle begins at its birth. The question is, how long will it live? A wood-sided building, in combination with our steel roofs are the best competitive price and performance we offer. What will you see on the roofs of Colonial Williamsburg, VA settled in 1607 the day they were built? Wood Shakes/Shingles. They can be a cost prohibitive way to go, but you get the point.
We are pole barn builders, we are also the saw mill! Most importantly, there is no additional cost added to make your new barn traditionally Wood-Sided.” Ask for it by name!
