FAST • EASY • STRONG
LOOK created a shear wall system that does not require exterior sheeting just for strength. We changed the orientation of all the bracing to be as thick as the wall itself. In other words, all of the lumber is 3-1/2″, 5-1/2 or 7-1/2″ thick with diagonal bracing and horizontal studs that can be used inside and out to attach any traditional sheeting, insulation, etc.
When these panels are joined together, they form a vertical post, similar to a pole barn except that these panels are normally bolted to concrete for a more permanent structure instead of putting wood into the ground. This doesn’t mean LOOK Buildings can’t build you a pole barn. In fact, we can design and build pole barns still using our patented system wall panels! You won’t be able to have one of our buildings re-created, nor will you find better strength with conventional framing.
The STURDI-LOK® panels are 8’ wide, but they can be downsized to any width. You can have any size of building up to 20’ tall with a LOOK building!
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
That’s an easy one to answer! First, a LOOK building is more conventional – that means it can be insulated from top to bottom, warm in winter, cool in summer. Your building will also allow for electrical systems – no exposed wires or unsightly conduit. And – this is very important – many of our customers who have steel buildings realize too late that heating and cooling can be very expensive. For instance, you can’t put an evaporative cooler on a steel roof (especially a rounded one)! Those are just a few of the considerations, ask us for more!
Our STURDI-LOKTM walls make a huge difference. Contractors that have used our system confirms our buildings go up faster and are much stronger than many other types of pre-made buildings. Customization is of course key – you can add or change our systems easily and economically. Many pre-manufactured structures have packages that do not allow this type of flexibility – our does!
Certainly, many of our clients do, and we have helpful tips to guide you thru the process. However, we also have a list of preferred contractors whom you can work with.
Cost is always a consideration, but so is durability. We think once you compare costs between the different building styles, ease, and convenience of the build, strength, and longevity, you’ll choose a LOOK building over any other.
