Frequently Asked Questions
No building is too large or small for us to build. Conventional sizes (24×32, 30×40, 40×60….) can be more cost effective because of stock building supplies.
Pressure treated 4×6 posts are standard on buildings smaller than 12,000 cu. Ft. (30’W x 40’L x 10’H). 3-Ply glue-lam posts are standard for buildings over 12,000 cu. Ft. (30’W x 40’L x 10’H).

Typically, the customer is responsible for obtaining the necessary permits for the building, however, at Superior Buildings we offer complete general contracting service in which your sales rep will be happy to assist you in this process or do all of the work for you. You, the customer, are responsible for any set-backs, size restrictions, etc. necessary to comply with your local municipality, homeowners association, etc.
As of November 11th, 2022, we are booked out 3-4 months for jobs within an hour of our office. As for the actual building process, the time can range from days to months, depending on the type of project.
At Superior Buildings, we offer complete excavation and site prep. If you decide to do your own site prep, it is necessary that the building pad be approx. 5 ft. larger than the building on all sides. (i.e. a 30×40 barn should have a 40×50 building pad.)
Your building site should be within 6” of level. If your pad is more than 12” off grade, you may incur extra costs. However, as long as you are willing to pay the extra costs, we can work with pads that are severely out of grade.
