Hampton hotels are committed to making guests happy. Free, hot breakfast keeps them well fed. Access to the fitness center keeps them healthy. A dip in the pool keeps them refreshed. But none of that matters if a tiny, unexpected drip disrupts their rest.
At this Hampton property in Sterling, VA, owner/operator B.F. Saul Company Hospitality Group is committed to maximizing operational quality. Its hospitality professionals uphold this mission by providing meticulous care and service.
When water infiltration was observed in two second-floor rooms, their director of engineering immediately reached out to ProXpress to help determine where the leak originated. Understanding this key detail helps ensure the proper repair and prevent recurrence.
Our ProXpress technicians mobilized quickly to the area where water was reported. First, an inspection occurred to uncover the source of the leak. Next, work commenced on the façade of the second floor. Technicians removed 12-inches of EIFS at the transition of the brick at rooms 104 and 109, removed the existing flashing that wasn’t shedding water properly, and re-sloped the brickwork below for proper drainage. After the flashing was set, the EIFS system was replaced and coated, and new sealant was installed.
Additional work occurred at the tennis court and mechanical room. Failed sealant was removed, reset, and resealed above columns near the court. Flashing was reset at a column near the mechanical room entrance and failed sealant was removed and replaced in that area.
Following completion of work, the ProXpress team provided our client with a Service Record containing photo documentation of all procedures performed. No drips in sight!
The Service Record also detailed additional, compromised areas in need of future monitoring or repairs.
