Client: Balboa Park
Location: San Diego, CA
Project: Wimmer Pool and Bridge – Epoxy Coatings San Diego
Systems Used: Texture-Crete, Thin-Film
Balboa Park is a historical gem here in San Diego. To be a part of any phase of its restoration is truly an honor. We were put in contact with the Museum of Art’s Building Engineer to assess old coatings in and around the reflecting pool that sits between Panama 66 and the Sculpture Garden, which needed an epoxy coating to hold up to the conditions.
The Wimmer Pool coating needed some attention and the museum wanted it looking its best once more. Our team came up with a plan to address all the issues they were having and got to work. After a mechanical prep and vacuum cleaning all holes and cracks were patched with an epoxy gel followed by a 100% epoxy primer. A urethane topcoat finished off the system.
The walking bridge was riddled with cracks and holes that needed to be filled in, and they were all cleaned and patched. To reinforce the patches and add strength to the overall system, a layer of fiberlath was installed prior to installing Westcoat’s cementitious overlay. After the slurry coat and smooth texture coat, the bridge was sealed with an acrylic pigmented topcoat.
Although a subtle upgrade, these coatings will prevent further wear and tear on this historical landmark. Do you have a unique concrete restoration project here in San Diego? Contact us and speak with a specialist today or book online below.
