What is Post-Frame Construction?

Post-frame buildings are highly-engineered, strong, wood-framed structures. Using posts in the ground (or alternative foundation options), wood framing and wood trusses, post-frame buildings provide a structure that is superior in strength and dependability.  From the foundation to the fasteners, every component in a Morton building has been engineered to work together to provide the ultimate in building strength. Plus, Morton buildings utilize clear-span construction, which allows the interior of your building to be wide open with endless layout possibilities

Post-frame buildings are also extremely efficient.  Because wood is a natural insulator and this type of building features large built-in wall cavities for ample insulation, post-frame buildings are more economical than all-metal buildings. To increase efficiency, we offer the exclusive Energy Performer® insulation system, which reduces heating and cooling costs throughout the year. Buildings that utilize this system have been recognized by ENERGY STAR and received LEED® certification for their efficiency.

Regardless of what you will be using your building for, what size you envision or your personal style, Morton Buildings can construct a post-frame building to meet your needs, style and budget.
