Building of the Year Winner Uses Marco

Congratulations to Graber Post Buildings, winner of the NFBA’s 2016 Suburban Garage Building of the Year.

The 2016 Building of the Year winners were unveiled and honored at the 50th Frame Building Expo in Nashville, TN. Winners were selected in 24 categories and showcased some of the industry’s best workmanship and products.

In the Expert Division, Graber Post Buildings took home the prize for 2016’s best Suburban Garage with the Unruh Recreation Barn (pictured). This first-place award winner is located in Floyds Knobs, Indiana, and features quality ventilation and closure products from Marco.

Graber Post Buildings utilized Marco’s LP2™ Low Profile Ridge Vent for superior ventilation. This custom-cut vent strip includes Python™ polyester vent material inserts for a snug fit and optimum ventilation at a cost lower than traditional fans and louvers. The durable, modified polyester is a non-woven, non-wicking, fiber-based matting which provides a superior net free ventilation area to help keep out moisture, pests and dust.

Graber Post Buildings also turned to Marco’s Closure-Foam™ Custom Fit Foam Closure System. Made from durable crosslink polyethylene foam, Closure-Foam won’t bleed, dry out, or dissolve with weather and UV exposure.

Glen S. Graber started Graber Post Buildings in 1973 with a construction crew of four men and a vision for success. Today, Graber Post has grown to approximately 250 people and is recognized as “your one-stop-shop for your next building or roofing project.” The company manufactures and distributes materials for any post frame structure or metal roofing project. They also have several installation crews to see the project through to completion.

We’re honored to be trusted by industry leaders like Graber Post Buildings and proud to have our quality Weather-Tite™ products included in award-winning projects like the Unruh Recreation Barn.
