Morton buildings are constructed to last for generations. We use only high quality building components to ensure our buildings look and function like new for years to come.
We work with you every step of the building process to make sure your building lives up to the building in your dreams.
We use quality products and sound construction methods to ensure you have a building you can be proud to own.
Our buildings are backed by the strongest, non-prorated warranty in the industry.
Every Morton building is constructed to fit your needs. To determine the cost of your building, your Morton sales consultant will listen to your ideas and consider factors that pertain to your specific project, giving you an accurate pricing estimate.
We know that quality isn’t just about the building, but also about the people you work with throughout the process.
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.
Damages can happen anytime. You bump into your building with a piece of equipment. A storm damages a sliding door. Or maybe an aging building needs a window or skylight replaced. No matter the damage, Morton is here.
Over the years, some companies have changed their warranties to provide less coverage for their customers, not Morton Buildings. Our buildings continue to be backed by the strongest, non-prorated warranty in the industry. And our warranty is written using easy-to-understand language to directly inform you and not confuse.
If you enjoyed working with us, why not help your friends discover the Morton Advantage? By referring a friend you’re helping to start their Morton Buildings experience, something they’ll thank you for now and in years to come.

Morton Buildings has engineered its own foundation system that offers superior strength for your new building. Using specially designed components and superior materials, the foundation system can be used in all climate conditions for a variety of building uses.
This exclusive foundation system consists of several components: A concrete column, an internal threaded adjustment bracket, stainless splashboard, internal column connector and a wood upper column.
In addition, because the foundation system utilizes concrete in the ground, there is no need for treatment, providing an eco-friendly foundation option for your building.

Morton’s three-ply lower columns are hydraulically compressed during lamination, providing a stronger column than solid posts of the same dimension. Lamination gives Morton the ability to add column stiffeners and/or increase the dimensional size of lumber for high-demand situations, like high wind areas and grade to eave heights greater than 16’. A full-length treated column, like those used by others, will also make it harder to get a straight wall because treated lumber has a tendency to warp and twist as it dries out. The style and size of each laminated column is matched to the load requirements and design of your building.
Lower columns are treated to protect against fungal decay and insect infestation with 0.8 pounds of treatment per cubic foot versus 0.4 or 0.6 found in other building systems. Morton allow for 100% penetration of sapwood treatment to the lower columns, above industry standards and other companies which may only have preservative on the outer edges. This provides superior protection of the wood, even when compared to others’ three-ply laminated columns.
