Cleary Building Corp. — Substandard building design & construction
Before buying a Cleary building do your homework. Our metal building was less than 90 days old when the wind blew off half the roof. Cleary immediately stated that they only insure the building up to 90 miles per hour and this windstorm was an act of God in excess of 90 miles and we needed to submit the claim to our insurance company. We submitted a claim to our insurance company and they hired an engineer. Cleary's building design was not engineered to stand up to even 90 miles per hour and was not constructed to withstand the proper snow load for the area it was constructed. They used poor construction - did not use hurricane clips or strapping which would have helped prevent the wind from taking the roof. This has cost us time & money not to mention having to file an insurance claim against our insurance company. Not only do we have to repair the roof but we need to do additional work to the building to make it structurally sound to withstand wind and snowloads. We expected better from a company like Cleary. I would not recommend a Cleary Building to anyone!
