The Westin Tampa Waterside Hotel recently completed the restoration of its exterior that extended the service life of its façade by 25-30 years. Using NeverFade® Façade Restoration Coatings with Kynar Aquatec® from APV Engineered Coatings gave the hotel a much-needed facelift. And they did it 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.
HEI Hotels & Resorts, the hotel’s owner/operator, also took advantage of a unique, 15-year color performance warranty from APV. The warranty, which is fully transferrable to future owners, covers both replacement product and the labor costs to re-coat if the Delta-E (ΔE, or Total Color Difference) of the coating shifts by a unit of five or more.
