Summary: Years of failed, pocketing coatings and leaking windows characterized this building, one of the oldest Condos in the City. Asbestos was present in some areas and proximity to open space required special containment. Water proofing and high-end quality would be required.
Restoration: The paint job required total stripping of the existing failed elastometric paint from all the walls and balcony areas as well as complete removal of window joint caulking. High pressure paint removal with full containment was prefromed followed by hand stripping and hand washing. After walls were re-floated with concrete patch and spalling repaired with epoxy concrete system, the entire building was coated with two-part, 100% solids expoxy primer to consolidate. Cold joints were caulked and coated with elastometric compound. Balcony undersides were coated with premium acrylic. Window joints were filled with backer - rod resealed. Walls received three coats of a high build, solar reflecive, waterproof coating system. The proocess created a cooler building in the highest heat months and eliminated the potential for similar water ingress problems that had occurred before.
