Stick Frame

Stick Frame Construction is also known as Conventional Stud Wall Construction. This style of Metal Building is very similar to new home construction. The economy lies in the metal roof and wall panels. Stick Frame is the preferred choice when the building's interior is going to be finished out.

We use normal 2" x 4"'s or 2" x 6" vertical studs (depending on the width) around the outside perimeter. We place the studs close enough(16" on center) so the customer can sheet rock directly to the interior of our load bearing walls. This saves the customer a step when finishing out the interior.

A Stick Frame Metal Building can be built on a economical floating slab with a thickened edge. They can also be built on a foundation or on a concrete block wall foundation.

Typically Solar Guard insulation is used for both Roof and Walls to insulate these Stick Frame Buildings. The Solar Guard has a conventional R-10 value plus it has the Low-E reflective insulation. Everybody in the past has been real happy with this insulation package.

If the customer is going to build in living quarters or a office, most want to add in another layer of fiberglass batts insulation. Easily accessible and coming in 16" wide rolls with dual tabs, most customers install this themselves with a staple gun.

Stick Frame Metal Buildings are economical in 20' to 50' widths. Some customers want this style of building because there is no wood going into the ground. Generally speaking this style is a little more expensive than a Post Frame Building, however they are still very reasonable and you get a lot of bang for your buck.

Trim and appearances

OMB uses a thicker 26 ga trim for the Eave on our Post Frame, Stick Frame and Simple Home buildings. This is a feature that no other Arkansas wood metal building company includes.(to the best of our knowledge) How strait the trim is at the top often dictates how well the overall building looks. The standard 29 ga trim that other companies use looks wavy on most buildings. Deflection is the term a architect would use. Cheap looking is how most customers would describe it.

Having decades of experience still doesn't help when dealing with a flat piece of 29 ga trim that is 20' long. It is next to impossible to get rid of all the deflection. Even by spending the time working it, till it is perfect today, it will deflect over time. Our solution is simple. By using the thicker and stiffer 26 ga for the Eave trim, it does not deflect near as much. The fasteners do not dimple the trim, plus you can make the connection tighter. The cost difference between the two types is negligible, however the appearance difference is night and day. Our trim simply looks better longer. This is when $35.00 dollars makes a huge difference on a $20,000.00 dollar building. These are the small details that add up to a great building.
