FAQs

What are Sentinel buildings made from?
Most Sentinel buildings feature all-steel construction, although some product lines do offer a steel/wood option. The steel used in the main structural members of our buildings has a minimum yield strength of 50,000 psi, and the weight of the steel is carefully calculated by our engineers to handle all applicable snow and wind load tolerances. The standard gauge of wall and roof sheeting panels is 26 gauge with a yield strength of 80,000 psi. When wood components are included, Sentinel uses only high-quality, structural select grade lumber.

Are all Sentinel buildings painted?
Yes, the walls and trim on all Sentinel buildings is painted in your choice of more than 20 different color options. Sentinel’s factory-applied paint protection features a 30-year warranty. Our standard roof sheets are made from Galvalume material for exceptional corrosion protection in the harshest environments. Galvalume has a shiny aluminum finish which appears white on most roof slopes, but can be painted if a different color is desired. Sentinel’s Galvalume sheeting also features 30-year warranty protection.

Is the trim on Sentinel buildings hemmed?
Yes, unlike a lot of competitive buildings, Sentinel takes the time and effort to roll the edge on all building trim. This gives our trim a neat, straight finish that is safer because there are no raw edges. Hemmed edges are also much stronger than unhemmed trim and, because they have no exposed material, are highly resistant to rust and corrosion.

Are Sentinel buildings insulated?
Sentinel offers laminated fiberglass blanket insulation in a variety of thicknesses and R-Value ratings, as well as thermal-efficiency systems for both interior walls and ceilings. Your Sentinel building consultant can make recommendations on insulation based on climate and building use.

Are sheeting closures standard on all Sentinel buildings?
Absolutely! Fitted foam closures are standard at the eave and base of all Sentinel buildings, which prevents dust, snow, insects, rodents or birds from gaining access. In addition, Sentinel also offers an optional deluxe trim package that provide a virtually “chew-proof barrier” for your structure.

How long does it take to get a building?
Because every Sentinel building is custom designed based on the customer’s needs and preferences, delivery time is generally 4-5 weeks from the time the order is received. However, this schedule can vary based on seasonality and can be as short as 3 weeks or as long as 12 weeks for more complex projects. Your Sentinel Building Consultant can give you a more exact estimate after reviewing your specific project.

What about my local building codes?
Every Sentinel building is engineered to meet all local building code requirements, and Sentinel will provide drawings stamped and certified by a registered engineer if required. If your local area has no specific code guidelines, Sentinel will design your building based on historical data for that county.

Who will erect my building?
Many Sentinel dealers include foundations and building erection as part of their service, which helps insure a quality, finished building that meets your needs. In areas where these services are not available from our dealer, Sentinel will assist in locating qualified local contractors to perform these tasks.

What type of foundation is required?
Sentinel offers three foundation types including full concrete slabs, simple perimeter or pier foundations which are the simplest and least expensive option. Which foundation is right for you will depend a great deal on the type of building you select and your local building codes. Sentinel’s Building Consultants will work closely with you to make sure you get the best option for your needs at the lowest possible cost.

Is there a Sentinel building near me?
Sentinel buildings are everywhere, and there may be one near you. A Sentinel Building Consultant will be happy to provide you with the phone numbers of nearby Sentinel building owners, if available. Many of these customers are proud to show off their buildings and answer any questions you have about Sentinel quality, service and support.
