As a food processor, one of the most important choices you can make is what roofing system you trust to protect your processing plants. Roofing systems are the first line of defense against food contamination and equipment damage, two impacts with potentially devastating consequences.
While businesses in many industries can afford minimal roof leaks for periods of time, the same is not true for companies that process food products. For critical food processing facilities, any leak (no matter how miniscule) occurring over even the shortest period of time is unacceptable. Any amount of food contamination caused by a leaking roof can be costly to your business’s reputation and, most importantly, the health and safety of your customers.
Potential impacts of a leaking roof could include:
- The complete shutdown of your plant
- Extensive facility downtime
- Foodborne disease outbreaks and subsequent lawsuits
- Expensive damage to your facility
- A significant loss of revenue
