Our Mission

Elevating the post-frame and deck-building industries

Indiana has long been known as the Crossroads of America. It’s there where two visionary thinkers brought Perma-Column® to life in 2003, charting a revolutionary new course for the post-frame industry. In the years since, the Perma-Column family of permanent foundation solutions and our family of passionate professionals have been committed to advancing the post-frame, pole-barn, and deck-building industries.

Today, our nationwide team continues to build on the groundbreaking Perma-Column legacy. We stand by builders creating enduring structures and stand with consumers making significant investments in building projects. We pride ourselves on the quality, design, and engineering of our 100 percent American-made post-frame construction and deck-building solutions that are certified by the International Code Council Evaluation Service (ICC-ES).

Uniquely Different

Patented, innovative solutions

Perma-Column was engineered to fill a market need that continues to grow. That spirit of ingenuity guides our work every day, and our belief that structures should last generations inspires us. We continually challenge ourselves to create innovative products that improve the performance of builders and their creations.

We work hard to gain the trust of builders and consumers. To build confidence in our products, each comes with a lifetime guarantee. Using our precast concrete columns, precast concrete deck posts, or our Sturdi-Wall® steel post-frame anchor brackets ensures consumers get the most out of their long-term investment and builders get a boost to their reputation for quality.

Tested and Proven

Engineered for efficiency, strength, durability

We have merged the value and efficiency of post-frame construction with the durability of concrete. To support builders, all our products install using existing post-frame building methods and industry best practices. We provide all the materials needed to properly assemble the Perma-Column system, which is ideal for new construction and repairs. Our permanent foundation solution supports a range of building types and markets, including residential, municipal, commercial, agriculture, and equestrian. See the project gallery.

Simply put, Perma-Column enables us to offer a one-of-a-kind solution that delivers on our mission to advance the industry. Consumers and builders alike benefit from our patented, ICC-ES-certified solutions for years to come.

We place the utmost importance on the strength and durability of our products.

Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne’s Department of Civil and Architectural Engineering Technology tested Perma-Column and found it to be stronger than the industry’s standard laminated wood columns.

The complete line of Perma-Column products has attained International Code Council Evaluation Service (ICC-ES) certification, meeting the International Residential Code® (IRC) and International Building Code® (IBC).

Environmentally Smart

Sustainably manufactured, readily available

While we care about the performance of our products and our customers, we also care about our impact on the environment. We’re happy to be part of the solution in this area too. Because Perma-Column is a permanent alternative to treated wood, it also is an environmentally friendly one. Its longevity maximizes use of resources. Its design keeps chemically treated wood out of the ground.

To cut down on shipping, our precast columns and deck posts are manufactured at authorized precaster locations across North America. Perma-Column products are available at more than 2,000 lumberyards and home centers right now.
