The use of steel roofing reduces the amount of shingles and other roofing system materials going into our landfills. When used as a reroofing option, steel can often be installed over the original roof, saving removal and disposal costs. Steel roofing and siding is also recyclable at the end of its useful life. …Read More

Why do we treat lumber?

•By impregnating fibers with a preservative, wood is eliminated as a food, therefore we can prevent biological decay. •All wood species are composed of two systems of interwoven cells – one from the roots to the top of the tree (fiber tracheids) and the other (ray tracheids) from the branches to the bark.

How should I insulate my building?

•The Cleary Energy Miser and Commercial lines of buildings provide an opportunity to fill 8’ wide wall cavities with 6” fiberglass batt insulation. Use of a steel ceiling attached to the bottom chord and the trusses as support allows high R-Values on insulation to be blown into the attic area providing uniform and tight insulation coverage, compared to steel building insulation compressed between steel roof purlins and sidewall girts.

Foundation Requirements for a Cleary building

• The foundation for the Cleary Building is designed to have the building columns placed in ground. A level building site is all that is required to start construction of your Cleary building. A concrete floor can be poured after the building has been enclosed, thus reducing concrete exposure to the elements during installation.
