After consulting with my lawyer, if he said I was good to go, i would plaster those pics WITH that statement ALL OVER the net, anywhere that someone that may want a pole shed might hang out. I can't imagine ANYONE hiring PPF after seeing those pics and reading that response. "industry standard" my a$$. "PPF standard" apparently but NO WAY industry standard.Thanks everyone for your comments and feedback, I appreciate it.
Here is the reply from the Praire Post Frame Engineer, I've redacted names as my lawyer is now involved.
"Dear Recipient: I am writing this letter in regards to the 4 photos that were sent to ------from --------- on October 5th. Firstly, I would like to note that the lighting conditions can greatly effect the appearance of the metal siding. From viewing the photos, it appears that the kinks in the metal siding are due to bowing/cupping of the lumber purlins supporting the metal. The screws supporting the metal panels must be tightened sufficiently to compress and seal the neoprene washers to prevent moisture infiltration. The bowing/cupping is an inherent property of the lumber and is not within the control of Prairie Post Frame. -------- of Prairie Post Frame was on site to assess the building and adjusted some screws. It is of our opionion that nothing else can be done and that the minor kinking of the panels is consistent with industry standards."
I think ill be sending PPF a email cancelling my quote for a new pole shed !! Don't care if they are cheaper with that type of response and workmanship ...!!! Screw them!!!...... no pun intendedAfter consulting with my lawyer, if he said I was good to go, i would plaster those pics WITH that statement ALL OVER the net, anywhere that someone that may want a pole shed might hang out.

So sm320, have you got any satisfaction out of PPF yet or are they still figuring it’s not a big deal? Hopefully they stepped up to the plate and did the right thing!Hi everyone, first post on here but have been a long time reader. I had a Prairie Post Frame 60x120x18 shed put up in September. Overall the construction seemed fine, But when the contractors were finished I noticed dents and dimples in the steel siding around where the screws were attached to the 2x6 strapping.
The contactor said it was normal due to the colour, PPF sent a guy out to have a look and he claimed he had never seen this before and there was nothing he could do to fix it.
I was wondering if anyone has experienced this before? I still owe them 20grand and they want to be paid. Just trying to decide if i should keep fighting for them to fix it, assign a monetary value to it and sign off on the build or is this normal for this colour and am i just being overly picky?
