If you have invested in a new farm building in Coeur d’Alene, you have undoubtedly experienced the great benefits it offers.  There are so many options for your new structure, like storing all your equipment, hosting events, or even use it as a garage hobby shop in Coeur d’Alene. 

To ensure your new agricultural building lasts the test of time, MQS recommends proper maintenance to prolong the life of your structure as long as possible.  Here are some tips on a few areas of your building you should monitor closely. 


Owners of farm buildings in Coeur d’Alene know that dirt can accumulate on the exterior.  Your post frame building could benefit from an occasional power wash to help remove anything that has accumulated on the siding.   

You may also want to look into adding wainscot to protect the bottom of your building’s siding.  One benefit of wainscot is that if it eventually wears down or is damaged, it can be much more easily replaced than an entire panel of siding.

Doors and Windows 

Two important features of metal buildings in Coeur d’Alene are the doors and windows.  Be sure to inspect these to see if there are any drafts, leaks, or cracks.  Sealing any areas that are letting air inside can improve the interior temperature significantly.  If you have livestock living inside your farm building, the temperature may need to stay at a specific range to keep the animals healthy.

After a long Idaho winter or after a recent severe storm, it is never a bad idea to give your Coeur d’Alene farm building a quick inspection.  Although steel buildings are very durable, mother nature can throw some pretty nasty weather our way.   

After heavy snowfalls, there can be excess snow accumulation on your roof, and once the snow starts melting, an ice dam can form.  If you can safely remove excess snow, it may prevent future problems for your building’s roof.

Gutters and Downspouts 

Ice dams, leaves, and debris can all accumulate in the gutters of agricultural buildings in Coeur d’Alene.  Regularly check the gutters on your pole building in Coeur d’Alene to prevent clogs and keep water flowing to the downspouts.
