About This Project

The Hotel is centrally located in the one of the largest thoroughfares in Washington. The property is in a highly visible location for travelers in all directions, and as such, the appearance of the Hotel is all the more important.  Hotel owners wanted a long lasting concrete finish that would look good for decades.  
Challenges The majority of the structure is concrete; concrete that required repair and refinishing prior to applying a highly durable, breathable, lightfast coating. There were also EIFS and brick portions of the building that were to be protected in addition to the concrete. The owners required a long lasting, beautiful, lightfast coating - and the KEIM Soldalit System was the chosen.
Solutions Concrete repairs were installed, and the use of KEIM Concretal Fine Filler was utilized to create a even texture prior to painting. KEIM Soldalit was an excellent choice, as this system protects the concrete from water intrusion and wind driven rain, while an ideal moisture balance is achieved due to the high vapor permeability of the System. Additionally, as with all KEIM coatings, Soldalit provides a lightfast, opaque application that will not fade over time. The color choice by the design team remains intact indefinitely - KEIM colors do not fade.
