MORTON BUILDINGS now offers the Perma-Column system for its new buildings. A Perma-Column is a high-strength concrete column with steel reinforcement. Morton says it is offering the Perma-Column system to combine the economy of post-frame construction with the durability of a concrete foundation. Perma-Columns can be used in a concrete mix or a ready-mix footing. They come with a lifetime warranty.

Morton typically sells Perma-Columns as an upgrade option, at a price of $100/post. This price covers materials and installation as part of a building package. Contact Morton Buildings Inc., Dept.
