Southside Elementary School
The Southside Elementary School in Sarasota, FL is a well-known academic institution and point of pride for the city. On September 14, 1984, it was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.
Maintain and honor the historic integrity of the building while ensuring optimal paint system performance. Its relatively close proximity to water means it gets a more than fair amount of environmental challenges that coastal living brings to buildings. Since the desired exterior color is white, it was imperative that the final result would be non-yellowing. In addition, the selected system needed to be guaranteed to perform for five years.
Florida Paints recommended a comprehensive paint system from primer to topcoat that satisfied all project needs.
AquaSeal Primer 3692 is a high performance chalk sealer and bonding coat to ensure proper adhesion of the topcoat. Ultra Satin 8220 is a superior quality latex with exceptional weathering resistance and easy application.
Plastiflex Elastomeric Adhesive Compound 8510 is an extremely flexible elastomeric patching compound designed to bridge cracks and minor surface defects. Once cured, it provides a permanent, yet flexible, repair that is mildew resistance. TropiFlex Flexicon 6470 flexible, breathable, decorative and protective coating engineered to waterproof all types of above or on-grade concrete and masonry.
