Whether you need a storage building, pole barn, loafing shed, or other portable building, Inola Portable Buildings & Pole Barns can meet your needs. In business since 1998 at the same location, the company has earned an excellent reputation.
The company is located off the north side of Highway 412 at 30355 S. 4230 Rd., where you will find more than 50 displays available. Buildings can be delivered or built on location, but about 90 percent of the businesses’ work is done on location.
In the company’s 19-year history, “We’ve never had a complaint about our buildings,” says Owner Carl Parson. “Our business has grown through word-of-mouth. We started with two buildings when we opened, and it just continues to grow each year. We’ve found that if you do everything better than the next guy, you’ll stay busy.”
Conventional or Dutch Barn portable buildings include treated skids along with treated floor joists on 16 inch centers, ¾ inch tongue and groove flooring, #2 stud grade materials, a 50-year factory warranty on Smart trim and on Smart panel siding, 30# felt paper and a 30-year warranty on Tamko shingles. Metal roofs are available in 20 plus colors at no extra cost with a 40-year manufacturer warranty on the material. Extras, such as steel doors, windows, four-foot loft, workbench and a four-foot treated ramp, are available at an additional charge. Sizes begin at 8x8 up to a 16x24 and larger.
Pole barns include one walk-in door and one 9x8 overhead door. An additional door is available for an extra charge. The company offers a 40-year manufacturer’s warranty on the 29-gauge metal used in the pole barns and loafing sheds, while the insulation comes with a manufacturer’s 10-year warranty. Also included in the base price is a four-inch concrete slab with rebar 18-inch on center in floor and 10-foot sidewalls.
Although they are open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Saturday, Parson will meet with potential customers at a different time to accommodate their schedules. The company also offers rent-to-own options.
“I just can’t say enough about our loyal customers,” says Carl. “Their support has attributed to our success and their referrals have helped us grow throughout the years.”
