I'm envious of all your shade. I have to work in a parking lot with shade at about 7:00 PM.

Those little ceramic beads will amaze you, we painted ours last year and haven't had a hot roof since

You seriously should coat your roof ASAP. It will have a huge impact, imho... And I LOVE the shade, but just wish the tree would quit vomiting everywhere. And actually, the rear half is still in the sun, but I truly can't complain.

They already have amazed me. It's borderline unbelievable. Exposed metal went from almost burning me to being cool to touch!
