A pole barn roof is unique and requires a professional contractor with experience. They are made from a series of poles that run across the entire building length, with one end in contact with the ground and the other in contact with the ridge beam. The ridge beam is typically raised off the ground at least 8 feet, which creates an air gap that allows for water drainage.
It's important to ensure your pole barn has a solid roof because this helps prevent leaks and damage caused by rain, snow, and ice. It also prevents pests from entering through small holes or cracks in the roofing material. This can be especially important if you use your pole barn as storage space, or as a space for livestock.
