About This Project


Built in 1928 and on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places, Edgewater Beach Apartments is located on the shore of Lake Michigan subject to wind driven rain, snow, ice, and major temperature swings.   In the 2001 demolition of the old Portland stucco to the brick foundation, a base coat of KEIM Universalputz Standard Render was applied directly to the exposed brick embedding the KEIM Glass Fiber Mesh and a finish coat of Universalputz Fine Render sponge floated smooth and painted with KEIM Granital silicate paint. 


No control joints used for the Universalputz render.  The apartment building is 21 stories.
