Typical Full Barn Remodel Process

Our process for slat and beam replacement allows the owner the ability to know the job is getting done right without having to deal with the logistics. We are a one stop shop that can take care of as much or as little of the project as you want. We move forward with the plan of action determined by owner. Depending upon barn size, most projects are completed within 5 days. Our patented equipment allows us to safely and efficiently remove and replace all the slats and beams in your barn without doing any damage to the structure.

SITE INSPECTION

• It all starts with a phone call. We plan a date that works for both parties (Preferably when the barn is empty and washed). Then we meet at the site and inspect the barn together.


• The inspection process involves assessing the condition of the barn. Slats, beams, and columns are all looked at along with bearing surfaces.


• We will give you our honest opinion of the barn. If it is safe and structurally sound, we won't try to tell you otherwise.

DEVELOPING A PLAN

• If the owner decides he wants to move forward with a project, we will discuss the options. There are some things that we always handle as part of the job and others that we do as additional options/services.


• We will give the owner an estimate. The estimate will include the entire cost of the labor, materials, and trucking. We will gladly work with any slat manufacturer if you have a preference. If you don't, we will not hesitate to give some recommendations.


• What we always do:

  • Treat the site as if it were ours.

 

  • Coordinate transportation and offloading of materials. The owner will not have to worry about getting slats to his/her barn, or risk damaging the materials during the offloading and stacking process.

 

  • Gain access to building. We find the optimal spot to enter the building, utilizing existing entry points when justifiable.

 

  • Make sure slats are set safely, efficiently, and without damage.

 

  • Make sure all surfaces are bearing properly.

  • Straighten, and shim slats

  • Grout barn.

  • Leave site in better shape than when we arrived.

• What we can do:

  • Remove old material from site

 

  • Haul debris from site

 

  • Remove gating

 

  • Reinstall old gating

 

  • Install new gating

• Once the estimate is agreed upon, we set the date. We work with the producer's pig flows. When you are empty we will be there. Our ability to work timely is a point of pride for us. We have the people, experience, and equipment to handle whatever challenges might arise, assuring the owner minimal downtime.

IMPLEMENTING THE PLAN

• We stay in contact with the owner and "zero in on a start date". When you are ready we will be there.


• We wash and disinfect all our trucks and equipment before coming to a jobsite.


• We will complete all tasks agreed upon by the owner and ourselves.


• We walk thru the barn with the owner to assure we have met or exceeded all expectations.
