Laminated Posts - What Sets Them Apart From A Standard Post?

We are pleased to offer the GPB Nail-Lam Column to our standard quality products.  The GPB Nail-Lam Column is a standard feature in each pole barn package The Pole Barn Company offers.   GPB Nail-Lam columns, also referred to as laminated posts are constructed using the best raw materials available.  Both the treated and untreated portions of the column are created using #1 Southern Pine Lumber.  The bottom treated part of the column is protected against rot, decay, and insect damage. 

The columns have a #1 SPIB certified finger joint and the entire program is inspected and overseen by an engineering firm to ensure that the columns meet the high standards customers expect. 

GPB Nail-Lam columns will save you time and money on your pole barn project.
