More and more dairy farm owners today are upgrading from metal roofing. Read more about why PVC roofing is a more suitable option than metal for your dairy farm roofing.
First of all, any livestock feeding or housing environment such as a dairy farm is highly corrosive. These environments are filled with gases such as ammonia and hydrogen, which can result in quick and widespread rust and corrosion for metal roofs, leading to high upkeep and replacement costs. Corroded metal roofing can also cause degradation of the covering material and lead to leaks, biohazards, and environmental hazards.
This is why corrugated PVC panels are the right choice for dairy farm roofing. These panels can provide you with a highly durable roofing solution and years of low cost, low maintenance and improved biosecurity in your farm. PVC panels also make dairy farm power wash easy.
PVC roofing can withstand the demands of nature
Extreme weather, whether it be strong winds, snow or brutal sun, can make roofing materials break down.
PVC roofs and solar panels
In an agriculture or farming business, you are constantly seeking ways to reduce your operating costs and ensure financial stability. Using rooftop solar panels can help you with that. In addition, it can also reduce your carbon footprint, add value to your business and help you enjoy low-maintenance, long-lasting energy production as the energy produced in your rooftop solar panels is directed back to a nearby large industrial plant, enabling your business to run on green power.
One of the key factors for the long-term success of rooftop solar energy is the quality of the roof under the solar panels. Roofs under photovoltaic (PV) systems should be durable and have an equivalent service life to the solar panels. However, too many traditional roof systems do not have a service life that matches, let alone exceeds, the service life of the PV panels. This is where PVC roofs excel. Their longevity and durability make them an ideal location for solar energy production on your agricultural facility.
In an industry as significant as agriculture, building solutions that are durable, effective and cost-efficient are imperative.
