If you’ve ever earned your living on a farm, you know the meaning of a hard day’s work. Whether you were raising horses, harvesting crops, tending to livestock, or pitching in anywhere you were needed, you probably had to deal with early mornings, long days, and tough labor – all needing to be done in rain or shine, on holidays, weekends, and anything else the calendar could throw your way.
That need for rugged work applies to more than just the individuals chipping in. Equipment and materials also need to stand up to the roughest weather, massive strains, and all-day every day support. That’s why corrugated metal is such a popular choice for agricultural structures all across the world.
Not only can corrugated metal panels hold up against wind and sun and rain and ice, but they can hold up against the tests of time, meaning minimal maintenance year in and year out – that’s one less chore on an already rugged workload.
Compared to wood, fiberglass, and other common building materials, corrugated metal also delivers tremendous value considering how long it remains fully functional. The cost savings of building a corrugated steel or aluminum barn are tremendous.
Metal Finishes for Agricultural Structures
The finish you choose to build with can have a huge impact on the functionality and lifespan of your structures. Galvalume is a tremendously popular option as its aluminum and zinc coating provides long-lasting protection against corrosion, even in high-ammonia environments like those housing livestock waste.
