Great pics Gabe.

How many man hours and what materials were used and how much? Did you just do the roofs or the rest of the structure as well? Looks like the sides too.

What is the primary reason for painting the roof? Keep it cooler? Look nicer? Rustproofing?

Great looking job BTW!

it was part of the spec of the original bid to paint the roof, the original paint contractor did not have in its bid to paint, which started a big contractral war, the gc then hired me. I would assume it was speced for rust prevention. as the metal was already factory finished. the structure was a air craft hanger. so it being what it is would explain the extra coating on the roof and tje building.

I would think that the heat would be reduced inside as well with the reflection with the bright white paint?

Good looking job Gabe! The highest lift I've ever rented have been 60'ers, and I have no problem with those. But a 100' is an entirely different ballgame. Would love to try one out someday.
