One of the main challenges for erectors is building strong relationships with
general contractors. The general’s job is to make sure that the project is
successful and the owner is satisfied. Thus when it comes to the core structure

to the task.

| Ask the Expert Questions in 'FLORIDA' |
| Q: We have an open sided, large 7600 sq ft metal building built in two phases beginning in 2002 which is insulated with white vinyl coated fiberglass material. The building is used year round for campground activiites. We enclose the building in our sub tropical Florida winter months with vinyl zippered side curtains/windows. We love this building but are having some real aesthetic issues with the insulation. The vinyl in the original phase is badly mildewed & covered with spider webs and is tearing along the seams & just generally disintegrating. It looks like the dickens & is not sturdy enough to be cleaned. Could you suggest a retro fit or remedy for this? Thanks so much. |
I would be surprised if the vinyl could not be cleaned. Unfortunately you may have to get a man lift and do it by hand. Pressure washing would probably be to much but a soft wet dust mop should do the job, rinse it often. A mild solution of chlorine or some other mildew killing agent should be fine but again rinse well chlorine will attack the steel.
The other thing I would look at is ridge ventilation. usually that type of mildew comes from a lack of ventilation. If no vents exist add some or put in some gable vents.

| Q: I am leading the marketing efforts for a small start-up metal building and steel fabricator in south Alabama/NW Florida. I would appreciate your insight into the best markets for this industry, best marketing tools/approaches, etc.
Charles Alley |
I am very biased in this area but in my opinion the retro-fit market is one of the few bright spots in the metal building business right now. New construction has slowed tremendously and there is a lot of inventory. I would consider the retrofit market and if that fits into your master plan give us a call we would love to talk to you about it.
Other areas in new construction are probably Medical, Educational, Military.
Roof Hugger, Inc.
| Q: I have a metal pole barn 30'x50' with metal roof. I insulated the metal roof from inside with 2" foam board. The building has sofits on both sides and a roof vent. I sealed all foam board and entry to room from sofit. So I underdstand air will enter into sofit go up roof ridge and out roof vent. I live in central Florida, I have read many conflicting stories on internet. Should I put 6 mil plastic over insulation thus ceiling off roof to relieve condensation issue? Should I spray radiant paint over it to help relieve condensation? Should I leave it as it is? |
Thanks for your question, as always it depends in part as to what is going on inside the building. If there is something creating a large amount of moisture then things change dramatically an a moisture control expert should be consulted.
A typical pre-engineered building application would have a vinyl faced moisture barrier on the interior of the building to minimize the transfer of moisture into the insulation where it could be held against the metal panels. Depending on the foam board you used a vapor barrier would be a good idea. If the board however has a foil facing I would think taping the joints and edges to the rafters should be fine.
A radiant barrier is normally applied under the roof panel, silver surface faci...
| Q: I have already ordered a steel building and have the stamped drawings of the building in hand. I have had trouble finding a concrete guy and I went to the Miami dade planning Dept. They were not a lot of help. So my questions are what are the next steps? And should a reputable concrete contractor know the specific thickness and strength required by Florida? And will they be the ones to draw up the foundation plans? Thank you in advance. |
As with most things today "Nothing is Easy". Having stamped metal building drawings is only a small piece of the construction battle. I would hope the people that sold you the steel building had explained that to you.
You will need to get a building permit at some point. To receive a Building Permit you will need a full set of "Construction Drawings" with a FL Engineers' seal on them. The drawings typically include a site plan, elevations, foundation drawings, plumbing, electrical, mechanical, etc. in addition to the metal building drawings.
The calculations used to produce the metal building drawings are also important to have because they will provide your engineer with the live, dead, uplift and thrust loads the meta...
