All of these needs and more can be satisfied with a pole barn.

Owners of pole barns, or Midwestern Buildings as we call them,  fill their enclosed space with all sorts of tools, equipment, livestock, and more. With each of the dedicated uses for pole barns comes the need for a different type of flooring material. The type of flooring you choose for your pole barn depends on your style, budget, and the way you will use your barn. Keep reading to learn about the different flooring options for your pole barn.

1. Concrete Flooring

Concrete flooring is one of the most popular flooring options for pole barns. Owners will notice less dust and moisture in their pole barns with this flooring. Concrete makes a great base for keeping your floor level, clean, and easy to remove any new dirt or debris.

Concrete flooring is best for: Agricultural, livestock (between stalls), and storage barns.

2. Gravel Flooring

Erosion is a problem for all structures. Gravel can slow the erosion of dirt and even help whisk away moisture. Please note, periodic leveling or addition of new gravel may be necessary. 

Gravel flooring is best for: equipment or other material storage.

3. Stone Flooring

This attractive flooring option provides what all barns need - strength and durability. Instead of dirt or even gravel giving way while moving materials or equipment, stone will be a stable option for you. Stone also adds to either a modern or rustic aesthetic.

Stone flooring is best for: residential living or equipment storage.

4. Dirt Flooring

Raised storage is a common use for pole barns. Many owners find that if they set their building up with the right storage levels, they can use dirt flooring - making this one of the most affordable options. You can always add a different flooring option later if you find your needs require more stable flooring. This choice is especially attractive for first-time pole barn owners. 

Dirt flooring is best for: equipment, material, or wood storage.

5. Livestock Mat Flooring

There are many animal home options for pole barns, including equestrian or horse stalls, poultry coops, and other sorts of livestock. Livestock barns need additional focus on the sanitary needs of the animals. Mixed with their need for cleanliness is their need to be treated like living creatures. Livestock mats can include rubber, special types of concrete, and other synthetic materials.

Livestock Mat flooring is best for: you guessed it, livestock.

The Mansea Metal Difference

We Are The Manufacturer

Most of the companies who advertise metal roofing and siding or post-frame buildings are simply reselling products produced by someone else. We produce our own products from rolled steel and have large indoor yards that keep our lumber protected. That way, we control the quality and time of delivery to you. And that creates jobs right here in your home town.

Higher Quality Steel with Superior Finishes

The truth is not all steel is alike, especially when it comes to finishes. That’s why we use Sherwin-Williams WeatherXL™ Coil Coatings. Created to withstand most anything that comes its way, designed to maintain extreme resistance to abrasion, chipping and marring with tremendous color and gloss retention. And you get to select your favorites from more than 22 striking color options

You Won’t Be Shorted On Lumber

When we price a building package, we give you everything you need to ensure structural integrity. Like longer gable posts that extend to the top of the truss, not just tying in at the bottom. And long-lasting pressure-treated wood measuring .60 CCA. You won’t get this quality at a ‘big box’ store. Plus, we use true 6x6’s along with 2x10’s and 2x12’s that are #1 grade.
