Silos are expected to stand proudly on farms to store grain and other products. As they stand tall, they are constantly exposed to the elements – wind, rain, hail, and more of the weather that we experience here in the Greater Vancouver and Fraser Valley area.
Over time, silos end up losing their protective coatings. As this happens, the structure of the silo itself starts to degrade. It can lead to corrosion and other issues – and it can be problematic, especially if you begin to lose grain because of the degradation.
The goal is to focus on the protective coatings. By focusing on a silo painting service, you can prevent deterioration and degradation.
