Project Description

Client: Holiday Inn Express, Concrete Coatings in San Diego

Location:  San Diego, CA

Project: Entry of Hotel

Systems Used: 12-95

The Holiday Inn Express & Suites located in San Ysidro received a major overhaul inside and out, including the entry which needed a new concrete coatings in San Diego. The Orange County-based company, Hotel Rehabs, gave us a call to come out and look at the concrete entry. The Porte cochére needed to be revitalized to go with the new look of the building.

Project Manager Gil Koury headed down to the Bordertown to make the assessment. He could see that the area was indeed worn and could use some help to finish off the hotel’s new look. Hotel Rehabs was doing a full renovation of this hotel and Gil’s crew had to work around different trades over the course of two weeks to get everything done.

Concrete Coatings in San Diego

For the driveway portion of the porte cochére, the existing surface was stamped concrete so Gil knew that it would take a tough coating to withstand the vehicular traffic. After properly prepping the concrete the best combination of coatings for an area like this is an epoxy primer followed by a polyurethane topcoat. We used Westcoat’s EC-12 Epoxy Primer and EC-95 Polyurethane Topcoat – the best solution for worn stamped concrete.

Despite the long daily drive to the border and tight deadlines this job went really smooth and turned out great. The hotel staff had nothing but good things to say about the end result and the contractor, Hotel Rehabs, was pleased with our work.
