Painting a metal building.
You have a total of 540 sqft of wall but this does not include any Gable ends. On the paint can it will tell you how many sqft per gallon it will cover then simply just do the math and add a little more.
I would go to your local Benjamine moore paint store and ask them whats the best product to put on that metal building. Also General paint has a product called Inviroguard. I use this all the time on metal doors, brick, stucco , doors and trims inside or out. When ever using a sprayer I always screen the paint first to make sure there are no particles that might plug up the sprayer but mix it up really well first. also do a few samples to get into the swing of things before tackeling the building. stay about 12" away from the wall, overlap half your spray pattern and keep the gun moving in the same direction you are going when you release the trigger so you don't get a heavy build up of paint.
