Affordable, Versatile Agricultural Construction Solutions

Increasingly, farm and ranch owners looking to add usable space to their properties opt for pre-engineered steel farm buildings as opposed to wooden ones, and there are several key reasons for this shift. In addition to typically being cheaper and faster to erect than wooden alternatives, pre-engineered steel buildings are highly sustainable, meaning they can be completely repurposed at the end of their life spans.

Prefabricated metal farm buildings are also easily customizable in terms of ceiling heights, storage space, climate control options and related considerations, meaning they can accommodate a broad range of farming needs, and they require very little maintenance over the life of the building. While wooden buildings are prone to suffering damage caused by moisture, termites, strong winds and other sources, steel buildings stand strong in the face of such hazards, and they also maintain their aesthetic appeal through the years with very minimal maintenance.

A part of northern Illinois’ Winnebago County, the city of Rockford is the state’s largest that falls outside of the Chicago metropolitan area. The community sits along the banks of the Rock River, about 95 miles northwest of Chicago and roughly 75 miles south of Madison, Wisconsin.
