Additional Information

New paint lines were required at the existing Durapaint Industries manufacturing facility.  However, the roof was too low to accommodate the upgraded production line.  With some wall load bearing and with some staggered wall areas, Rooflifters was able to easily accommodate this situation.

The roof lift modification doubled the useable space inside the existing building.
