Desert Crete is patient, Desert Crete is kind. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
A rewritten version of a passage in the bible yes, but true words never the less.
Our latest job concerns a property in Atascadero that was a victim of the housing crash in 2007. These condo’s, tucked on the north edge of the Dove Creek development, were left abandoned when the developer’s financing was pulled. Half finished with the exterior semi-dried in, the roof was partly on, stucco paper was on and the decks and stairs had a base coat of our Desert Crete system in place. I had sold and managed the job years back for a company that I was a salesperson/estimator for.
With the market returning and banks loaning money, a new buyer hired Bob Crizer of Crizer Construction to manage the project and redo the building. Bob hires the best subs and we were one of his subs on this job.
Our assessment of the job found that the decks and stairs had done pretty well without being finished or other building materials being in place or finished either. Some water had leaked into the framing assembly of the decks where columns were unfinished with a water resistant barrier.
We repalced some drip edge flashing after the problem was discovered and continued to just texture and paint these decks that have waited so patiently, protecting the homes while waiting for someone to return to breath life back into them…and so we did.
The building looks beautiful with new exterior finishes and the decks and stairs are well equipped with Desert Crete to protect and beautify them for years to come.
