Are you running out of work or storage space in your home, office, or business? Putting an addition on a home or a commercial business can be an expensive proposition, and construction can be inconvenient. However, you can save a lot of time and money by investing in a fabric building for your expansion needs.
What Is a Fabric Building?
A fabric building is a fabric-covered structure that is meant to be a temporary or semi-permanent structure. There are a few ways that they differ from permanent structures. For example, the materials used to construct a fabric structure are different. While a permanent building could consist mostly of bricks, concrete, and lumber, a fabric building typically uses lighter-weight materials.
Fabric structures consist of sturdy all-steel frames and durable fabric or tarp covers that often don’t require zoning permits or local building codes to adhere to*. These structures provide heavy-duty protection, storage space, and more for a wide range of needs.
Although fabric buildings are temporary structures, they are built to last. Some fabric buildings are even wind and snow load rated**, which means they are ready to take on tough weather. Also, while they should always be anchored for safety’s sake***, fabric buildings do not need to be built atop a concrete slab or a wall foundation.
Fabric buildings are versatile, and there are several ways you can use them on your property. For example, a fabric building can be used as an on-site workshop space for manufacturing, masonry, or carpentry. Likewise, you can use a fabric building to store equipment for your construction, landscaping, automotive, home improvement business, and more. Additionally, you may want to add electricity and ventilation and use a fabric building as office or meeting space.
