Clearspan Structures

Does anybody have any experience with these structures. I always see them in a couple magazines I get and I'm always curious as to how they are.

Let me know your thoughts.

its a tent...at some point in time the UV rays will destroy the "plastic" tarp and you'll have to retarp the structure...

What are you buying when you buy from them? Just the "tarp" and not the base structure?

no you buy the structure, hoop house, frame work, ect. and you buy the plastic shell.. but the shell will break down over time....this is what you are talking about right..

I helped put up one of those steel arch buildings many years ago. For the money, I'd rather have something more durable and long lasting, and go smaller if needed to cut costs. Plus, if you need to move it, take it apart and put it somewhere else. Good luck with the Clear Span, it looks like a pretty good piece for what it is.
