Buildings. We use the very best and the "top of the line" products
coming from suppliers who stand behind them.
As newer and better products become available we will
certainly go to them as always; however, they must pass our rigid
building units are started off with unsurpassed strength by using heavy
H-Beam "straight leg" engineered steel trusses set 10 or 12 feet on
center as the building length dictates. All trusses are engineered and
designed to Northern Building Codes and fabricated for us by one of the
largest steel plants in the mid-west. Six or eight inch "C Channel"
endwall legs complete the steel backbone of the AMKO metal building.
Siding and Trim:
As with all building components,
we use the best available. Our roofing, siding and trim is provided by
Metals, a large, national
company with a local mid-west outlet right here in Northwest
Arkansas for our convenience and immediate service. We use their Smart
Rib Plus™ design roofing and siding, fastened with
colored screws. They offer a large
assortment of colors
and are backed by the best guarantee (40
YEARS) and service in the industry.

Of all our quality
building components, this seems to be the first one mentioned by our
many owners. We use only Dow
Chemical manufactured "Thermax" in our buildings. Thermax is a "one hour
fire rated", extruded 4' X 21'6" sheet and has metal facing to the
outside with a white interior surface. All joints on the Thermax are
taped carefully before the Best Panel™ metal is applied and fastened
through the Thermax into the interior 2" lumber with weather-sealed
There is absolutely no
air infiltration into the AMKO building, and the
insulation is the very best in the industry, hands
We use only number two
(or better) graded lumber and still check it on
the job site to ensure that it meets our rigid standards. Roof purlins
and side girts are all 24" on center and fastened to the engineered
steel truss clips with screws. 2 X 6 endwall studs and steel endwall
legs are set per building design. Treated 2 inch lumber is used at all
"northern-designed" and manufactured windows and doors from
Wisconsin. Our entry doors are the well-known Model "88" heavy-duty
steel, in a variety of sizes and window configurations.
Our windows are the Model M-3025
dual thermal units in a variety of sizes and configurations.
The all-weather quality of PLYCO's
"northern-designed" doors and windows suits our needs best and
completes the excellent insulating qualities of our AMKO
All overhead doors in
our AMKO Buildings are steel commercial-grade models 224 and 240 Windsor Republic

unsurpassed and the service after the sale is excellent.
Worth mentioning is the fact that due to the all-open
overhead design of the AMKO steel truss
building, a greater variety of door sizes and
locations become available to you.
Additionally, we offer "follow-the-roof"overhead door rails that allow more overhead room. CLICK HERE for an example.
Numerous amenities such as wainscottings, roof overhangs with soffet,
roof cupolas, window shutters, clear-span roof shed to 12 feet wide,
door porches, etc., are available.
Your imagination is virtually the guide. The appearance of the AMKO
quality buildings takes second seat to no others!
Concrete Floors and
Our building crews can install virtually any type of concrete
needs. In busy times we rail the site, make ready, and hire it "poured
and finished" by one of the two local finishers we trust. Various
finishes are available, including "broom finish" for horse barn
