Bere are some frequently asked questions we receive
from our customers. If you have a question that is not
located below call us at 706-568-0500 or send us an
firstname.lastname@example.org and we
will answer any questions you have to help ensure you
are comfortable with your purchase of a Banner Building.
Q. How is my building delivered to me?
A. Our dealers use a specially designed flatbed truck to
deliver a fully assembled building to your location.
Q. How much access is needed to get the building
in my backyard?
A. That depends on the size of the building you order.
Typically a horizontal clearance of 1' to 2' in addition
to the width of the building and an overhead clearance
of 13' is needed.
Q. What if you can't access my backyard?
A. Usually trimming a tree limb or removing a fence post
will do the trick. The dealer can consult with you on
this during a site inspection, if needed.
Q. How long does it take to get a building?
A. If you choose a building in stock, the dealer can
usually deliver it within a few days. If you order a
custom building, it typically takes two to three weeks.
Delivery is weather dependant. Wet weather can sometimes
delay the delivery of your building.
Q. Will my building rust?
A. No. The siding, roofing, and trim are made of
maintenance free aluminum and aluminum does not rust. We
also use stainless steel siding screws to prevent rust
from the fasteners.
Q. Do you offer custom door and window placements?
A. Yes, at no additional cost. Doors and windows can be
placed anywhere within a wall provided the wall is
sufficiently tall and they are two feet from a corner.
Q. Can a garage door be placed in any wall?
A. This depends on the type of building you order.
Garage doors can be placed in any wall of a standard
tall. Garage doors can be placed in the peak wall (width
wall) of a gable regular and barn regular.
Q. Do you offer electrical outlets/lights?
A. No. Electrical outlets and lights should be installed
per the National Electrical Code by a licensed
electrician. A storage building manufacturer cannot
possibly anticipate all site specific conditions such as
GFI requirements. The major cost for electrical service
is installing wiring from the customer's home to the
storage building. The most cost effective and safe
approach is to have a local licensed electrician install
interior lights, outlets, and switches when installing
electrical service to the building.
Q. Are anchoring kits included with your building?
A. No. Soil conditions vary from location to location as
well as code requirements. Anchoring is the
responsibility of the dealer or customer.
Q. Why don't you use wall braces?
A. Traditional 1"x4" wood braces and metal t-braces
require wall studs to be cut which reduces stud
strength. The siding panel and screw pattern on Thrifty
buildings are engineered to perform the same structural
function as braces without weakening the studs.
