For over three decades the Baker family has been a vital part of the drywall and plaster industry in Texas. Baker Drywall has grown to be one of the largest specialty contractors in the nation, while Triangle Plastering has gained a reputation for completing many of the largest and most technical plaster projects in Texas.

The Challenge
After the impressive completion the of L’Auberge Resort and Casino, Phase I, in Lake Charles, Louisiana, Triangle Plastering began to plot its course of how to handle Phase II’s L’Auberge Du Lac, Tower addition. Tasked with simulating wood texture using a base coat and a short time frame, the team at Triangle knew a 70 hour work week schedule, under extreme rain and humidity was in their future.

The Solution
Turning to a trusted distributor, Bayou City Wall Systems and a brand they had confidence in, Triangle Plastering chose Teifs base, Stay-Dry Base Coat, Mesh, Teifs Primer, and Teifs Freedom Finish, Tejas Finish and Tejas Fine. Triangle Plastering’s confidence in the workability, coverage, drying time and moisture resistance, of the Teifs products, were just some of the reasons chosen to help achieve the simulated wood texture that they were looking for. “Coverage on finish is outstanding”, said Manuel Galindo, Jr., Project Manager at Triangle Plastering. “(Teifs) Stay Dry basecoat is a must on any sloped or horizontal surface.”

The Outcome
Triangle Plastering met the challenge, creating a beautiful simulated wood finish and completing the job on schedule. The products from Teifs helped to ensure Triangle could continue their tradition in providing exceptional work by dedicated and skilled employees. “The coverage is great, and both basecoat and finish “run” allot better than other manufacturers Manual said. The high acrylic content in Teifs products makes them a lot smoother and easier to work with.” When asked if they would use Parex products again Manuel responded, “Absolutely, Consistency!”
