Building Site & Structual Analysis
We come to you and evaluate your job site. We stake out the building site and determine if you’re within proper setbacks. We will check access for concrete trucks. Do you need fill dirt? How much? Space Age Structures can give you an accurate cost estimate and give you a “heads up” on potential problems we see.
Vertical Metal Roof Design
The roof panels run up and down preventing water and leaves from standing on the roof. Visit our 'Space Age Advantage' page for more details.
Boxed Eave Design
Overhang on all 4 sides of the building. This keeps water from running down the side of the building and causing leaks at the doors and windows. The boxed eave makes the building more attractive and gives you the option of choosing different colored panels for the roof and building (i.e. – charcoal roof with white box trim and gray building panels).
Concrete Slabs by our Concrete Specialists
Our structural analysts and concrete specialists pour our slabs with 3,000 P.S.I. concrete with fiber. All concrete slabs have a 12″ x 12″ footer that contains (two) #5 rebar that run the entire perimeter of the building. We take special care to get the best possible compaction on the foundation and always use a vapor barrier. We score all our concrete to help prevent ugly cracks.
Base Rail Attachment
Our base rail runs the entire perimeter of the building and is anchored using 1/2″ steel bolts drilled into the 12″ x 12″ footer every 5′. The pull-out strength is 7,450 lbs. per bolt. The base rail gives us a steel member at the base of the foundation to attach the bottom panel to for a tight seal. Because we pour our concrete slab perfectly square, we can run the bottom panel past the edge of the concrete. This will keep rain from running into your building from under the base rail.
