Driskell Hotel in Austin

 

The Driskill is the oldest operating hotel in Austin, TX, and it is rich in history. Dating back to the 1800's, Colonel Jesse Driskill purchased the bare plot of land for $7,500. In just two years, the hotel was transformed into one of the most prominent, luxury hotels in Austin and beyond. 

The hotel has seen its share of notable visitors to include Lyndon Baines Johnson, who brought his future wife, Lady Bird Johnson, on their first date at The Driskill Grill.

Time and weather have taken a toll on this Austin landmark, prompting a need to restore the damaged balconies. Chamberlin Roofing & Waterproofing was enlisted to repair the four balconies and serve as the General Contractor. The scope includes concrete demolition, concrete installation, framing, sheet metal flashing and trim, balcony waterproofing and plastering. The project is scheduled to be complete in May 2017.
