About Pole Building Kits from APM Buildings

APM is a leading supplier of Pole Building Kits within the Mid‐Atlanic Region (300mile radius of Arendtsville PA). Our pole building kits are designed to save you time and money. We do this in part by manufacturing the three main components that make up a pole building which include; wood roof trusses, Tuff‐Post (pole building posts), Endura Metals Roofing & Siding. Our kits offer many building options along with your choice of roof, siding and trim colors to match your needs. Our kits are generally shipped in 2 ‐ 3 weeks, in 1 ‐ 2 loads. Our kits include the plans and material (lumber, roofing, siding, etc.) to construct your pole building or garage.

We use only quality building materials from trusted brand names like Owens Corning, Endura Roof Metal, Tuff‐Post, Cannonball Hardware, and Simpson Strong ‐Tie and more. The wood trusses in our Pole Buildings Packages are engineered and approved by the truss regulating industry. Our treated posts meet International Building Code (IBC) Section 2308.1 Preservative treated wood; which states that the post must be treated to 0.6 pounds per cubic foot (pcf).

With a pole building you do not need a concrete floor. If you choose to pour a concrete floor this is done after the building is up. The treated skirt board that comes with your building acts as a form so that you are ready to pour concrete anytime once you are finished with the building.


What We Manufacture


Trusses

We stock 24’, 30’ and 40’ trusses. We design and manufacture trusses up to 80’ clear span. All of our lumber is kept under roof and out of the weather before manufacturing . We have a laser system on our gantry table to ensure accuracy when building the trusses. Our manufacturing facility is designed to be very efficient, wood starts at one end of the building, then sawed , then assembled and exits out the other end of the building. Very efficient and cost effective.


Metal Roofing

We manufacture our own Endura Metal Roofing and Siding. We purchase 5,000‐10,000 lbs. metal coils, then roll form each job to order, individual panels can be made to the inch. We offer 16 colors, plus galvalume and white liner panel for inside the building. We stock the most popular trims in all of the colors. Special order trims can be made on our computerized 21’ brake. All trim is shrink wrapped and palletized to ensure it gets the jobsite without damage.


Tuff-Post

Tuff‐Post is our engineered—glue /nail laminated pole building post that we manufacture. We have in stock the most popular sizes. We make 3ply and 4ply , 2x6 or 2x8 posts. Treated .60 CCA wood is the used in the lower section and bright Yellow Pine #2 is used in the upper section. Posts can be made up to 32’ in length. We then plane the top and bottom part of the post which makes for a nice clean finished look.


T&G Boards

Most of the T&G Boards that we manufacture are used in horse barns. The profile is V on one side and flat on the other side. The flat side could be used for T&G flooring. Each board is first planed on one side, then flipped and T&G and planed on the other side, ensuring a nice clean product. The different species we T&G are #2 Yellow Pine, Framer Series—Yellow Pine and Treated .60 CCA in both 2x6 and 2x8 up to 16’ in length.
