Ridge Vent Wall & Roof Customizable Options Real Stories

The finishing touches let you create a pole barn that’s uniquely yours – including additional features or protections. Learn more about the exterior pole barn options available to you!

Continuous Ridge Vent

The rib pattern of metal roofing can leave a small gap in the top of any barn. A continuous ridge vent seals that gap with breathable strips contoured to the metal ribs.

Not only does a continuous ridge vent improve ventilation and comfort, it also reduces condensation that can lead to air quality concerns for horses and livestock. If you’re planning to house any animals in your new barn, a continuous ridge vent is a must!

Wall & Roof Sheathing

Upgrade your pole barn walls and roof with additional sheathing to improve the overall structural integrity and help fight against the constant assault of moisture that any building experiences. We offer several types of sheathing for roofing and walls:

Wall Sheathing

Roof Sheathing

Cupola with Weathervane

No barn is complete without the traditional cupola. Your pole barn can have one or more cupolas shipped and ready to install, along with one of several types of weathervanes to go with it. Cupolas can be 24”, 36” or 48” in size.

Not only do they add a unique class to your pole barn, cupolas help improve ventilation. Whether you’re using your pole barn as a workshop or just for storage, every bit of ventilation makes your barn more enjoyable to use.


One of the most popular pole barn exterior options, wainscoting both enhances the visual appeal of your barn. DIY Pole Barn’s wainscoting is a 36” skirting around the base of your barn with a customizable color to add a two-tone look to your barn.

In addition to the aesthetic appeal, wainscoting can help prevent incidental damage to your main pole barn walls, such as kicked up gravel from lawn mowers or other vehicles.

Skylight Wall Panels

Windows aren’t the only way to let your pole barn interior enjoy a little extra sunlight. Our skylights are polycarbonate panels positioned at the top of the eave side walls that span the entire length of the barn.

Available in both frosted white and clear versions, you can choose to place them on just one or both eave sides of your barn to capture as much natural light as possible.

Metal Roofing & Siding Thickness

The gauge of metal roofing and siding refers to its thickness. Standard DIY Pole Barns come with 29-gauge panels for roofing and siding. However, if you live in areas with extreme weather, you may benefit from the increased thickness of 26-gauge metal.

Snow Bars

If your area experiences tough winters, you know how snow can avalanche off a roof. Snow bars are fastened to the roof to prevent accumulated snow from avalanching down and causing serious damage to gutters, landscaping or anything you may have surrounding your pole barn.

While our pole barns are designed to withstand the peak snow loads of your area, snow bars help protect everything around your barn. They’re a great option for new pole barns built in the Midwest and beyond, where yearly snowfall is expected to be heaviest.

This is Butch & Karin’s story. What they say, “Just wanted to drop you an email to let you know how pleased we are with our new barns.
