Building Specifications

AJ Buildings pride our self’s on out moto:   “Build a better Building”

Unlike several of our competitors we focus on quality construction.  While the industry is trying to cut costs by offering less like low 3/12 pitch trusses and spacing at 10 foot and sometimes as wide as 12 foot. 

Our standard buildings we build using only engineered trusses with a minimum of 4/12 pitch trusses with minimum standard spacing at either 8or 9 feet.   Our buildings also come standard with trusses to support internal load so your cold storage pole building today can be turned into your lined finished work shop in the future.

AJ Buildings LLC offers the following high quality standard specifications as the minimum standards to which all our buildings are constructed. Because we offer full customization, you may request additional features as well.
