About Us
  When Luke Goebel started Goebel Welding & Construction in 1983, he wanted to change the way of barn building by bringing better ideas to the table, that would last customers for years to come. Having worked for a couple of different contractors in the mid to late 70s, he saw some good ideas put to use. However, with technology and experience Luke developed many of his own ideas, and now 30 years later has new ideas everyday for the company.

Building Strong Structures
Luke decided the first thing that needed to be done to have a strong structure was to set your posts deep in the ground on all dirt floor buildings. He decided to trade in the hand diggers and small tractors for heavy-duty hydraulic augers on larger machinery. With this we set our posts anywhere from 6’ to 9’, depending on the size of the building.

For example, on a 30’ x 40’ building we will only dig a 6’ hole with a 15” auger and backfill approximately 1’ of dirt to hold post level before filling the remainder 5’ to the ground level with concrete. On a 50’ x 100’, we will dig a 7’ hole with a 20” auger, and on an 80’ x 200’ building we will dig an 8’ hole with a 24” auger.

On a building that will have a concrete slab, we will install metal anchor embeds in the concrete foundation prior to pouring concrete. These embeds are constructed of ½”or ¾” thick plate with four ¾” or 7/8” rebar (depending on the size of the pipe to be used) that are 18” to 24” long and go into the concrete beam. If a larger building (80’x200’x18’) will have a concrete slab we will set the posts prior to concrete construction.

From The Ground Up
We furnish all the necessary equipment needed for the erection of the metal building. We will not ask the customer to furnish a tractor to dig holes, extra help to install tin on the roof, etc. our pipe trusses are constructed from heavy duty used tubing.

Our 30’ trusses are constructed from 2 3/8”, 40’, 50’, and 60’ from 2 7/8” and our 80’ are from 3 ½” upset tubing. Anything larger than 80’ will be constructed from I-beam. Our pipe posts range in size from 4 ½” to 7” used casing. A 30’x40’x12’ will have 4 ½”, a 50’x100’x16’ will have 5 ½”, and an 80’x200’ will have 7”.

All of our posts and trusses are sandblasted down to new metal and have two costs of red oxide primer installed. If galvanized purlins are to be used we will install one silver finish coat on all posts and trusses to match purlins. In the field, once all framing is done, all welds will be painted with red oxide primer and have a silver finish coat sprayed over them to give all the framing a new and clean appearance.

All our silver finish painting is done with airless spray guns for the best appearance. All our purlin framing is from 14 gauges (not 16 gauges) and all of our sheet metal is 26 or 24 gauge. When framing a wall or roof, we will not space our purlin over 4’8”. Also, we frame all of our windows from purlins where most contractors screw them to the metal wall panels with no frame.

Going the Extra Mile
These are just a few things that we believe set us apart from others when pricing a custom metal building in Texas. We have many satisfied customers from the last 30 years and hope to acquire more in the coming years and generations. The two complaints we have are our costs being greater than most and our waiting period a little further out. Please call or stop by anytime for a visit about any of your metal building projects.
