Adding a barn or metal building to your property is an exciting new endeavor. A new building or barn will increase the usability and value of your land while providing an area to store equipment, create a workshop, house stock for farms, etc. You might be thinking of buying a pole barn kit and constructing the barn on your own. If so, here are some features to look for in the warranty being offered before making a purchase.

Length of Guarantee

Be sure to read all the fine print so you'll know the exact length of the warranty terms. Some barn building kits will limit the number of years on certain items or materials, or the warranty might not cover all items included in the kit. This is called a "Limited Warranty," and it should be studied carefully before buying if possible. If a company refuses to disclose the warranty information up front, you might want to reconsider buying from that particular retailer. Pole barn or metal building kits can be expensive, so you'll want to be sure your investment is covered for now and the future.

Manufacturer vs. Store Warranty

You'll find that many retailers of pole barn packages offer their own warranty as well as a manufacturer's warranty. These are separate warranties entirely, so you should ask to read the terms of both before buying. The retailer's warranty likely covers any damages that might occur during the shipping process and/or broken parts or damaged materials of lesser value. The manufacturer's warranty is usually for the long-term, such as 30 or 40 years. This ensures the materials you are receiving are designed to last many years so you can rest assured the items or stock you store in your barn will be safe.

Time Limits for Shipping

When you first receive your barn building kit, be sure to check all materials and accessories immediately for any noticeable damage. You'll likely have 15 to 30 days to report any damaged goods in the initial shipment. This gives ample time to examine everything in your pole barn kit.


Most building kits have exclusions within the warranty. For example, acts of God, explosions and fire, civil commotion, war, etc. might be excluded from coverage. The warranty probably will not cover damage from external forces. For example, if you order a garage building kit to add a garage to your property, it probably won't be covered if you run into it with your automobile and damage the garage. Even garage kits of good quality can't withstand the force of a fast car!

Other Warranty Issues

The pole barn kit warranty may not cover exposure to salt water spray, airborne contaminants, harmful chemicals, or weather elements such as hail. You should also be aware of your responsibilities. If you fail to take proper care of your barn or building (such as failure to properly ventilate or exposure to excessive moisture), then the company is not responsible for damages.

Rust Issues

Be sure the manufacturer's warranty covers rust issues. Rust is the number one culprit when it comes to the deterioration of outside structures. A manufacturer worth its salt will offer protection against rust, including peeling or cracked paint, fading or color changes, etc.

Notice the types of materials being offered as well as what's covered in the pole barn kit warranty. You can read much information online to get all the facts before purchasing a kit. Some retailers offer a variety of kits, including pole barn kits, home garage kits, metal building kits and storage building kits. This enables you to find the exact structure to meet your needs. Use these tips to make sure the warranty can alleviate any worries you have about your pole barn kit purchase.
