The exterior appearance of your pole building is as important as the quality of your garage. Siding is not only for aesthetic purposes but if installed properly can add structural integrity. There are many siding options available in a variety of products to create a custom look. Typically steel siding is used on most pole buildings, but you can match your existing home or garage/shop with products such as vinyl, concrete, or LP siding. You can even dress up the look of your structure by adding rock, shake, wainscoting, or color bands. Your professional Solid Structures designer can discuss options with you to create your completely custom building.
