    Download the guide to see the true financial breakdown


    Spending a Little Now Saves A Lot in the Future — The Numbers Prove It!

    Corrosion is an ever-present adversary to the longevity and reliability of metal products. Left unchecked, it can undermine structural integrity, compromise functionality, and incur substantial financial losses. 

    Yet, a small investment in regular upkeep and maintenance is a powerful shield against the steep costs associated with repairing or outright replacing corroded metal products in the future. Consider this:

    • The cost to build or rebuild a simple short-span pedestrian bridge: $200,000 to $1 million
    • The cost of maintaining a bridge with ZRC once a year: $9.20 to $33.19 per square foot (including glass blasting)
    • The cost to install or replace an industrial or commercial metal gate: $2,000 to $30,000
    • The cost of maintaining a metal gate with ZRC once a year: $7 to $14 per linear foot 

    These figures are only the beginning!

    By prioritizing proactive care, companies and individuals alike can navigate the challenges posed by corrosion and safeguard their investments for the long haul.
