"shirk builders"

I would like to say I ordered a pole building and it was installed in two days. The workers were very experienced. They were the nicest guys to talk to and Leon, the sales man, came to my home in New Jersey one day after I contacted him. He was very nice to talk to and he knew what he was talking about. I would recommend Shirk Buildings to everyone, so to all the guys who installed my 24x40x10 building, thank you from Frank Webber. Thank you, Leon.

Goal: build a 24x40x10 building
Cost:  $13600.00
Length of Project: 2 days
April 12, 2014

Linus Shirk was very accommodating with all the changes I requested and gave very good advise at the start of the project. My 30 x 40 pole building was completed in 2 days. The quick construction did not take away from the quality of work. The on-site workers were very professional and friendly. The site was left very clean with minimal work for me to do. I will be sure to recommend Shirk Pole Building to anyone that is interested in quality work and not very costly.
Thank you

I shopped around , and got three bids. When I met the owner from shirk builders I could tell from the first meeting. That this was the company that I wanted. Let's start with the price. Shirk beet them all. Second the way they helped me pick out my garage and colors to match my home. Third, the workmanship. These guys work all day non stop. I am a picky person and my show cars r now kept in a secure building. I was nervice that the pole barn would not fit in next to my home. It does and looks great. I was also concerned about hurricane sandy. Again no problems. I give this company a ten out of ten. Just plain old fashion hard work and craftsmanship. I will and did refer this company to my friends and faimly. Tony from PA

Our experience with Shirk pole building and Leon was a pleasure from the planning to the end. The 30 x 64 foot three bay building went up in a day and a half. The construction crew were very professional and followed through on every detail to our satisfaction. The concrete crew did a fantastic job on the floor and
finished the doors off at the bottom to assure no water could enter the building. The estimate was right on to the penny. The construction of the building is excellent to every last detail including the spouting. We found that Shirk included a some things in the price that other companies we had looked at where always extra. So to sum it up, we would highly recommend Shirk to anyone who is looking to have a new building erected. Mike and Gail Noll - Fleetwood, Pa.

I erected a 24 x 36 x 12 pole building in my back yard. The Shirk folks were a pleasure to deal with. From our first meeting with my salesman and all through the selection and building process they were very helpful. They showed up when the said they would. They did everything they said they would. Even with some last minute issues, nothing was a problem for them. The workmanship and attention to detail by the crew who built my building was above average. It was evident they took pride in their work. There was no bull*** or jawjackin, just good old fashioned hard workers. I am quited pleased with my building and would highly recommend Shirk Pole Buildings. Jack Peterson Egg Harbor City, NJ 609 226 3629

Working with Allen was great. I had brought a number of different designs to SPB
and he helped me tweek the right design for what I needed. The price was very reasonable and the workmenship was very good. I was even able to change things
up until the material was ordered if it didn't have an effect on the building structure. If you were to want to make a change it never hurts to ask they will work with you because their name is going on this building and they want a satisfied customer. Yes, I have and would recommed SPB to other people that I come in contact with. If I ever need another pole building I will go to Shirk Pole Building to build it. Thank you Allen and your staff for your prompt serve.

I had a 24 X 32 pole building with a second story access measuring 12 X 7 X 32. Three men came and erected it in 3 days, unbelievable. The last day two others joined but they were gone by about noon that day, finished. Very courteous and very hard workers. It was a pleasure to watch it go up. They were very picky about details and it was so appreciated. I love my new building. I would highly, highly recommend them to anyone. The price and quality cannot be beat. I had 3 bids and they beat the other two by a substantial amount. I did a video showing the construction and they can be viewed here:

First, we are very pleased with the finished product. The building looks great and is an asset to us. More importantly, we want to thank all the professionals involved in the process: The sales staff, the crew that delivered all building supplies and the team that framed and assembled the building onsite. The hands-on construction team arrived early in the morning and worked non-stop from the time they got to the job site until the building was finished. We highly recommend Shirk Pole Builders to anyone. We give Shirk Pole Buildings LLC 5 stars.

Should I hire an architect when doing a standard remodel?
Asked on March 19, 2013 by James

I'm planning to do a major remodel of a house built in 1910. Should I hire an architect to plan the remodel, or can most builders do this themselves?

That is a good question. If you are somewhat familiar with construction and interior finishes or know and trust the builder that you have selected the two of you should be able to plan the remodel together, with you giving input on what you are looking for and your builder designing it and...

Bold interior colors are in style right now, such as a multicolored room with two walls in Burgundy and two in Sienna. However, if you need to paint the interior walls before you sell I would suggest staying with light neutral colors because every buyer will have a different taste. Exterior... Read full answer

You should get several bids before hiring a contractor
