Snow Capped Roof of Bangalore

Looks like a really big house! Do you think heat maybe seaping in from the untreated side walls?

Finally, before the summer starts full blown and with a 5 month old at home, bought a 10kg can of LuminX reflective paint and applied it over the weekend.

It was a bad breaking job, but I think it was worth it since bedroom I applied it over doesn't have that baked feeling since last few days. It was a 10kg bucket and as per instructions, 20% dilution is required. I probably did 40% dilution since I wanted a bit more area covered. This may have compromised on the heat absorption a bit. Nevertheless, the difference can be made out. I am hoping it will last for atleast couple of summers.
