White Rock Farms searched for a durable wall panel solution for the interior of its 700-head dairy operation, one that was easy to keep clean.
The bullseye for this North Carolina dairy was Trusscore Wall&CeilingBoard.

Roddy Purvis is the owner of White Rock Farms, a sprawling hog, poultry, and Jersey dairy business located in Peachland, North Carolina.
In 2013, Roddy faced a dilemma: He required a product for the interior of his dairy barn that would stand up to repeated washings and would be easy to keep clean, allowing his staff more time to focus on the cows and their milk production.
Roddy landed on Trusscore Wall&CeilingBoard — a 16” wide, interlocking PVC panel with a smooth, durable, water-resistant finish — and the product has proven itself in spades.
“It has lived up to expectations,” says Purvis. “It’s a good product from a cleaning standpoint. We’re able to keep things wiped down, clean, and looking nice, and Trusscore products have that nice, bright white color. It has done well.”.
Did you know?
Trusscore Wall&CeilingBoard is available in six convenient lengths – 8’, 10’, 12’, 14’, 16’, and 20’.
The extra-long options are ideal for dairy barn wall panels and similar oversized projects. Likewise, the ability to purchase panels at — or remarkably close to — the exact required length reduces cutoff waste and saves time during installation since, in many cases, no cuts would be required.
A Clean Focus
Cleanliness in any food-production facility is paramount. This story is no different for White Rock’s dairy farming operations. Trusscore products are up to the task because they repel water, meaning they withstand repeated soakings and cleanings, day after day, year after year.
Purvis chose to install Trusscore Wall&CeilingBoard in his parlor room, as well as the milk and tank rooms. Sure enough, after eight years of use at White Rock Farms, Trusscore Wall&CeilingBoard is still performing like the day it was installed — standing up to daily cleanings and repeated pressure washing
“We do a daily washing,” explains Purvis. “A lot of times it’s simply water and a brush, and sometimes we will use mild soap. But monthly, we'll pressure wash everything. Trusscore is easy to clean. It wipes off easily and you really don’t have to use a lot of detergent.”
Trusscore is easy to clean. That’s very convenient for us. It makes cleaning quick and easier and less costly, thanks to the nature of the product itself.

Because Trusscore PVC wall and ceiling panels products shed water, they don’t support the growth of mold or mildew. Products like drywall and FRP (fiberglass reinforced plastic) panels, on the other hand, not only swell and degrade when they get wet, their cellulose components are a haven for mold and mildew — something that has a zero-tolerance policy in not only milk production facilities but also dairy farms upstream.
Purvis has had no trouble with mold since installing Trusscore Wall&CeilingBoard. And he has since discovered another benefit: Trusscore dairy board panels are lightweight and can be easily removed and then reinstalled without impacting an overall operation when room-use changes dictate renovations.
“We've been able to go back in where we had tanks going through walls and been able to take our Trusscore product off and put it back together; working with it to create openings for the tanks to come through,” he says. “It's been a product that has worked pretty well for us. We like how Trusscore Wall&CeilingBoard performs.”
It has lived up to expectations. It’s a good product from a cleaning standpoint. We’re able to keep things wiped down, clean, and looking nice, and Trusscore products have that nice, bright white color. It has done well.
