Embassy Suites - Rooftop Mural
Custom Coating Colors

Size: 7,500-square-foot mural project
Location: Greenville, South Carolina
Products: AcryShield A600 QuickSet
Artist: August Vernon

Challenge:

  • Existing roof substrate was TPO which is historically difficult to adhere to.
  • Roof coating used in the mural required superior dirt pick-up resistance. 
  • Hot and humid weather conditions with mid-day storms required the use of a fast-setting roof coating to ensure proper set-up and dry time.
  • Roofing coating needed to be tinted to over 25 vibrant colors. 


Solution:

  • National Coatings was chosen because of their superior ability to adhere to TPO membrane.
  • National Coatings perfectly matched over 25 paint colors chosen by the artist.
  • Quick Set AcryShield roof coating allowed the coating to set-up and skim within 30 minutes, ensuring the artist’s mural work would withstand an afternoon shower.

The mural was painted on the roof of the Embassy Suites Riverplace Downtown. The mural, designed and painted by artist August Vernon, features Upstate landmarks and civic leaders. The mural incorporated vibrant colors and imagery to depict Greenville’s history, institutions, visionaries, geography, and attractions. It will be visible to guests from their hotel rooms and patrons of the rooftop restaurant in Greenville, SC. National Coatings has the ability to custom tint our products to match most colors. Our AcryShield A600 series product was specially tinted to over 25 colors requested by the artist for this project.

Silicone Solution

Our SRC Silicone Roof Coating Product Line is Resistant to Early Wash-Off 

These products can be used in the following systems:

SRC Coatings:    

  • SRC 740 High Solids Solvent Free Silicone Roof Coating is a one-component, moisture cured silicone roof coating system designed for use on existing smooth surface BUR, granulated cap sheet, well adhered acrylic coating, concrete, metal, sprayed-in-place polyurethane foam and various single-ply membranes. The system provides long-term protection because it resists weathering, aging, oxidation, wind-driven sand, rain and snow, the effects of ozone, ultraviolet radiation and the temperature extremes typically found on roofs. With its high solids content and absence of hydrocarbon solvents, SRC 740 can be applied in excess of 40 mils in a single coat without blistering, while maintaining maximum adhesion.

  • SRC 750 Roller Grade High Solids Solvent Free Silicone Roof Coating has the same excellent properties as SRC 740 but is engineered for a applications that require the coating to be rolled on.  SRC 750 can be applied in excess of 70 mils in a single coat without blistering, while maintaining maximum adhesion.
