Quick Answer

The benefits of using a pole barn kit are its affordability, adaptability, versatility and structural integrity, according to APB Pole Barns.

Pole barn kits only require posts for framing. The foundation also only needs posts that are deep in the dirt and supported by footers. In a constructed pole barn, the posts act as load bearing member, whereas load bearing walls are used in other conventional structures. Additionally, a pole barn constructed with a kit requires less truss spacing than other structures, leading to more savings on material costs, notes APB Pole Barns. These different factors can make it more affordable, easier and quicker to use a pole barn kit.

Another benefit of using a pole barn kit is that it can be utilized in different types of site settings because site excavation is not necessary as with stick-built structures. Another advantage of this type of construction method is its structural integrity, which can withstand weather conditions, such as strong snow and wind gusts. The use of a pole barn kit also is versatile because it can be utilized to build different structures other than barns, including garages, air craft hangars and cabins.
