Proposals from Walters Buildings look... different.
While other builders may only give you the dimensions of the proposed building, Walters gives you every detail. Even though you may have no idea what the splash-boards are, we want to let you know that we have the details covered. In fact, you never need to worry about the details; we always use the best materials. But, in case you are curious, we have listed some of our specifications below.
Our splash boards are 2" x 8" S4S #2 or better Southern Pine, pressure treated to a net retention of 0.4 pounds per cubic foot with Smart Sense micronized wood protection. We only have one level row of splash boards, ensuring that all of the metal buildings are at grade.
Our side girts are 2" x 6" S4S 1650 MSR or better Spruce Pine Fir spaced approximately 32" on center with all the joints staggered at attachment to the columns. Our roof purlins are 2" x 4" S4S 1650 MSR or better Spruce Pine Fir spaced on edge approximately 24" on center. All other framing lumber is standard grade or better.
Our trusses are factory-assembled with 16- or 20-gauge galvanized steel Alpine truss plates as required and graded kiln dried lumber as specified. An in-plant quality control inspection is conducted under the auspices of the Truss Plate Institute. Our trusses are designed with current standards and specifications for the stated loading.
We use 2" x 6" diagonal bracing in all unobstructed corners, and we use 2" x 4" lateral truss ties and 2" x 6" end bracing as required.
Our skylights are 0.06" nominal translucent FRP Alsynite/Structoglas building panel. These panels are used as exterior eave lite, skylight or roof panel applications.
We manufacture our own 5" box type gutters, in colors that match the trim, on both sides of the metal building. While gutters and downspouts are a standard feature on all of our metal buildings, that is not the case for other builders. Without gutters, your site will wash out along the sidewall. Gutters also help keep moisture away from the columns and prevents heaving from frost. Gutters also accentuate the trim job of the building.
