I think the big thing behind Morton is their warranty,

I didn't read through the BBB claims, but it is like saying a particular vehicle brand stinks not because you had problems with the vehicle but because you had problems with the local dealer

Compare costs and what is included in that cost along with the warranty...

You ain't heard nuttin until standing under a steel roof during a hail storm. It was coming down hard and hitting with a deafening roar. The horses ran out. If we can't stand it I wonder what it does to them?

My husbands vet clinic is a Morton, It is beautiful. It was very pricey though. I know, I almost choked when he told me they had over $200,000 just in cabinets.
But the building is brick with round windows and a burgundy metal roof.

Not to be argumentative, but we have a steel roof on our barn, not insulated, and it doesn't bother the horses one bit.

Horses have become accustomed to the sounds of battle, steam engine locomotives, rifles, and all sorts of loud, uncomfortable noises. It's not the end of the world Might even help with the desensitizing process

It doesn't bother our horses either. We do have insulation and a moisture barrier in ours and truthfully its not loud at all.

I like everything about my Morton barn except they put in sliding doors on the stalls instead of the regular doors which was what I wanted. Eventually I might change the doors, as in general most sliding doors tend to get kicked, bent or otherwise warped and no longer slide as well. So far the doors work fine though. The barn is about 4 yrs old now. I wish I had put bars up in one of the stalls as I have one horse who has separation anxiety.

They did get some bad wood in that was warped and had to replace it before they could finish building the barn. Although that may have been their supplier's fault.

Ask for netting or something to keep the bugs out of your tack room/feed room. My barn has large openings at the roof for ventilation and the wasps just love it. Eventually I want to climb up there and put some screening in. I hope to do that this spring before the wasps come back.
