Add Burrow’s Post-Frame Building Supplies To Your Pole Barn Material List

While pole barns allow for an efficient building process, any construction involves intense coordination with many moving parts. Clear communication, consistent progress, and significant results are all needed in order to keep your post-frame clients happy and ensure your barn-building business continues. Before you start building, stay a step ahead by having your pole barn material list and post-frame supplies predetermined.

Planning ahead pays off when time is money, and jobs take time. In this blog, we’ll cover why generating your pole barn material list can jump-start your project, and how to keep it on the fast track with Burrow’s post-frame products to ensure your build has high quality that is long-lasting.

Why Should Contractors Get Their Post-Frame Materials List Planned Out?

We all are aware that construction, housing, and real estate markets are in an unprecedented boom right now. While every contractor is thankful to have an abundance of projects, the increased amount of working hours spent on the job site leaves less time for crucial details that keep their businesses running effectively.

While it can be difficult to maintain an organized routine for efficiency, having a process in place before starting construction eases that burden. Having your material lists ready at the start of a new project can help you by:

Understanding The Scope of The Post-Frame Project

When you start to analyze and prepare your order of post-frame materials, you begin to visualize the end goal for the project. This planning is important due to the fact that contractors have a deadline to be finished by, or the customer is being charged by time and material.

Having a better grasp of the scope of the project allows you to accurately plan and order the precise amount of materials while limiting mistakes – such as multiple trips to the suppliers to get additional supplies.

Analyze The Costs of Post-Frame Supplies for Your Client and Company

Analyzing profits and costs is important for the value of any project. Being aware of what a project will cost you in material, time, manpower, and supplies lets you accurately price your bids and fairly charge your clients.

Burrow’s wants to help our clients as much as we can. By making this step easier with our SmartBuild software specifically designed for contractors, we set out to assist you with more than just quality products for your pole barn sites by removing the time-consuming factor of hand-figuring your bids and builds.

With SmartBuild, each kit is able to be estimated as a complete package. This includes necessary pole barn supplies like posts, girts, purlins, trusses, header boards, skirt boards, truss carriers, doors, windows, soffit material, trim, and screws are accounted for to match the amount of metal, insulation, pipe boots, closures, v braces (and more) that are needed.

These seven core features of SmartBuild give you an edge when it comes to increasing sales, streamlining processes, and managing more work. SmartBuild provides contractors with:

  • Real-time interactive 3D inputs
  • Automatic framing

Creating A Schedule

Knowing when and where to show up is important for your subcontractors, too. As we all know in the construction industry, your relationships with your fellow tradesmen and subcontractors are incredibly important.

Making sure to properly schedule them out is a great way to extend respect for their time and efforts – which will help you maintain a good working relationship with them. When they plan on being at your job but it falls through, this negatively affects their flexibility with their own current projects.

Preparing a pole barn material list lets you get your subcontractors hired and scheduled accordingly. You need to know the availability and projected time of arrival of materials to then schedule out electrical, plumbing, HVAC, drywall, floors, paint, and more to follow the proper inspection procedure.

Understanding what materials are needed, when they are coming, and who can do it helps plan out the entirety of the project. Staying organized by creating a structured schedule helps everyone involved to feel more at ease.

Successful Organization Leads To Happy Clients

Think about things from a client’s perspective. In the vulnerable state of being new to pole barn construction, and having invested their money in the project, they are entrusting you to do the job efficiently and with a quality outcome.

With contractors as the middle man, acting as a liaison between the job site and the customer’s end goal, customers can relax knowing their contractor is planning to use smart solutions to correct and predict roadblocks that may arise while getting their dream post-frame pole barn accomplished.

By remaining organized, you can deliver post-frame supplies, correct predictions, and smart resolutions to your clients, getting their dream pole barn built smoothly. This helps you gain favoritism and start to generate a healthy portfolio that can win over new leads.

Even the most organized and detail-oriented contractors have a lot to juggle. At Burrow’s, we’re here to help. While you have to handle the site and client, you can rest easy knowing your post-frame supplies are being supplied by the best in the business.
