What do Redpath Dairy Standoffshelters cost?
Redpath Dairy Standoffshelters can be surprisingly cost-effective. This is due to the fact that when you purchase from Redpath you are buying direct from the manufacturer with no "middle-man" in place.
Redpath source all their materials direct from the steel mill, plus all of the other major components of the building such as the aluminium fastening systems and specialty long life coverings are sourced by Redpath direct from the manufacturer. We bring these materials to you at the best possible price and on top of that have the choice of more than four construction crews who work nationwide to construct our shelters on your farm for the best possible price.
With these sourcing and installations systems in place - Redpath can bring you a high quality building that offers years and years of service at a very affordable cost.
Prices do vary slightly between Redpaths different building designs and the optional extras that are selected:
