Too Hot for Cold Feet on a Wedding Day

Life can be humorous. I’ve begun to notice how the longer I’ve been involved with my job, the more I start to notice the things from my job in my personal life. Recently, I got married to a wonderful and beautiful woman. And because I knew she was going to look so tremendously gorgeous on our wedding day, I knew I had to rise to the occasion myself. So my groomsmen and I all go to Men’s Warehouse to pick up the tuxes we had rented. We start to try on our suits to make sure that everything fits, and we topped it off with our very shiny, polished black shoes. And when I say polished black shoes, I mean POLISHED. Needless to say, we all were looking great in our dark grey tuxes and shiny black shoes.

So the wedding day comes, and I walk outside on my way to the outdoor ceremony and just bask in the abundant sunshine that is all around me. It’s a nice and breezy 76 degree day, not too hot or cold. I travel to the ceremony venue and begin my journey to becoming a married man. I am standing poised at the alter with my groomsmen when I notice something. My feet are BURNING up in these shoes. It felt like someone had just set fire to the tops of my feet, and this was after only 5 minutes of standing in the sun. But after much focus and a little hopping from one foot to the other, I made it through the ceremony and got wed to my amazing wife.

Afterwards, I was telling one of our guests about my shoes and they laughed and exclaimed “You should have put some aluminum roof coating on those shoes. You wouldn’t have had a problem then!” And then it really hits me, a part of my work life intersecting directly in my personal life. It wasn’t a hot day, a mere 76 degrees and it felt like it was 120 in my shoes. Aluminum roof coating certainly would have cooled my feet off, and that’s why it’s so important for the longevity of roofs. The cooler you keep that roof surface, the less likely it is to be damaged by the UV radiation. Because the aluminum reflects away the majority of the heat, it will also keep the interior of the building nice and cool. It’s a cost effective, long term solution to reduce energy costs.
Aluminum roof coating could have solved my problem, could it solve yours?
