What Is Our Process

The Structural Intergity

AFAB Industries takes pride in the innovative design and construction features that define our CLASSIC Building. In comparison to conventional post frame buildings, our truss connection system sets a new standard in structural integrity. By elevating truss heel heights and utilizing two ½” bolts for fastening, we enhance the stability and durability of each structure. The strategic placement of posts and trusses at 4ft on-centre along the side walls ensures robust support, while end wall posts, spaced up to a maximum of 6ft on-centre, extend seamlessly to the top cord of the truss, reinforcing the building’s overall strength.

In the construction of our ULTRAPOSTS, we employ a dual approach to ensure longevity and resilience. These posts are not only mechanically fastened but are also bonded with an impressive 3,500psi adhesive, adding an extra layer of structural reliability. Furthermore, our commitment to stability extends below the surface, with laminated posts buried 6ft deep and securely tamped with crushed rock to provide a solid foundation. The use of Permanent Wood Foundation (PWF) treated lumber in the below-grade portion of the column enhances resistance against moisture and decay, ensuring the longevity of the structure. No building like it.

The Exterior Durability

Strapping joints are staggered for superior strength and durability. All exterior roof and wall strapping is #2 and better kiln dried spruce to meet the highest standards of strength and appearance. Then all cladding is fastened with #14 x 1¼” metal to wood grips with neoprene washers. Our unique custom flashing system covers all exposed lumber on door headers. Every step in the AFAB building process is designed to exceed building codes. No building like it.
