An exterior restoration of the Westin Tampa Waterside Hotel using NeverFade
Façade Restoration Coatings with Kynar Aquatec was recognized by Commercial Construction and Renovation Magazine with a 2019 Project Profile Award.
The award honors the "best-of-the-best" construction projects, as voted on by the magazine's editorial board.
The restoration project, undertaken by NeverFade Certified Applicator and façade restoration experts Stuart Dean Company, provided a much-needed facelift and extended the service life of the hotel's façade by 25-30 years. It was accomplished at a much lower cost than replacing the brick façade and window profiles or having to repaint the exterior every three to five years, which is a typical coating lifecycle in Florida.
"We are honored this installation of NeverFade Coatings was recognized by Commercial Construction and Renovation," said Michael Couchie, VP of sales, APV Engineered Coatings. "It is a testament to the superior performance of our coating system, which comes with a 15-year color performance warranty. The warranty is fully transferrable to future owners and covers both replacement product and labor costs. With 20 years of actual outdoor weathering data, we know the product performs."
“In addition to the strong warranty and attractive appearance of the coating system, we were pleased that NeverFade does not emit harsh solvents into the air, allowing us to not impact our guests’ experience with odors during the application period,” added Rob Willis, SVP Design & Construction, HEI Hotels & Resorts, the hotel's owner/operator.
