The verandas of homes in New Orleans are a gathering place where entertaining friends, family and clients take place many months of the year.
Our challenge was to repair and refurbish the deck at this heritage home in the Uptown District. The practical requirements – creating a fully watertight system and maintained the integrity of the building envelope – along with ensuring the space was attractive and welcoming.
The HydroStop Premium Coat System was installed – which includes 5 elements (2 FoundationCoats, Reinforced Polyester Fabric and 2 FinishCoats) along with a final topcoat of RhinoTop made the surface walkable and easy to clean.
Upon completing a site visit 2 years after installation – the finish is still looking new and continues to be enjoyed in all seasons.
What we did
Multi Family Properties
As property management professionals of multi family properties know best – tenants are drawn to the amenities condominiums and apartment homes offer – including outside living spaces.
At Chateaux DiJon in Metairie, Louisiana, the multi family property is aptly described as ‘luxurious garden-style living designed with the charm of New Orleans French design mixed with the contemporary conveniences of an upscale apartment community’.
Our challenge was to refurbish the 100+ decks at the property all the while minimizing inconvenience to residents. In addition to our work various other renovations were underway and so our communication with the various parties was critical to ensure the residents were inconvenienced as little as possible.
The HydroStop Premium Coat System was installed – which includes 5 elements (2 FoundationCoats, Reinforced Polyester Fabric and 2 FinishCoats) along with a final topcoat of to provide a knock-down texture which made the surface comfortably walkable, and, easy to clean and maintain.
Important to note: this work included providing a 5 year no dollar limit (labor and material) warranty – giving piece of mind to the property owner.
