Best Western Carlsbad

Project Description

Located across the beautiful Carlsbad State Beach, the Best Western Plus Beach Lodge View had an old concrete surface that needed to be updated. With the help of Life Deck, this hotel’s hallways, common area, and pool deck received an updated look with new textured concrete. In addition to having an updated, decorative floor, the hotel now has a durable surface that is skid resistant and can withstand the foot traffic of their hotel guests.

The Challenge

The old concrete coating, which covered approximately 3200 square feet, had worn down over years of use from hotel guests alike. Life Deck was asked to revitalize Best Western Carlsbad’s outer walking areas with a new waterproof coating for added safety and renewed aesthetic appeal. Westcoat’s Texture-Crete Standard system was concluded to be the best system to install for this job.

The Solution

First, the old stamped coating had been demolished and power washed in preparation for the re-coating. Next, cracks in the concrete were patched using Westcoat’s EC-76 Epoxy Patch Gel to create a smooth application surface. EC-12 100% solids epoxy primer was applied with sand broadcast for adhesion; Two topcoats, TC-1 slurry coat and TC-3 knockdown texture coat, were soon after applied for added skid prevention. Finally, SC-10 pigmented acrylic topcoat created the finishing touch for beautifying the cement.

In addition, the pool coping was removed and replaced to match the updated floors. The final result was a stunning, replenished floor that made the hotel look just like new again!
