Project: Drake Terrace
Location: 275 Los Ranchitos Dr., San Rafael, CA.
Type: Senior Apartments
Size: 2 buildings, +300 units
Material: stucco with wood trim
Cost: $146K
Duration: 4 months

Summary: The facility has dired out cracked stucco wall and needed updated colors. A color consultant created a new palette of colors. Solar-reflective "green" coatings were applied to all walls. This project was awarded a 5 year and 10 year materials warranty.

Restoration: we began with restoration by opening cracks that were V-grooved initially, then primed and filled then with stucco patch. Cracked wood on balconies and facia boards were filled with caulk, smothered and finish coated with a more suitable, premium low sheen for better durability and water holdout. All stucco walls were primed with a cross-linking acrylic, bonding primer and finished coated with two coats state-of-the-art, energy efficient and solar reflective acrylic in 5 custom colors.

Products Used:
- Synkoloid Exterior Spackle
- Custom Stucco Patch
- The Ultimate Coating Company's Bonding Primer
- The Ultimate Coating Company's Thermo-Seal low-sheen paint (trims/eaves)
- Benjamin Moore low-sheen trim paint (trim)
- Kelly Moore #1245 low sheen paint

Along with their well prepared packet they brought recommendations and specifications of products that they felt would better serve our purposes.
