Crossing our fingers for a drier week ahead!

Thursday, July 20th: Greetings and welcome to your project blog for the upcoming painting project at Chelsea Mews! We will kick off your project tomorrow, Friday 7/21 with pressure washing of select included wood substrated on the exterior of your homes including: siding, soffits, garage doors/frames, deck railing/spindles, skirt and support pillars. Also, select deck floors will be completed.
We ask that you kindly move any small and/or personal items from the outside of your home/deck to allow for safe and unobstructed access for washing and painting. Please note it is not necessary to completely clear the contents of your deck.
Once the substrates have had adequate time to dry, the crew will return to begin prepping and finishing of the included surfaces. We anticipate this will begin on Wednesday, 7/26. The project in entirety should take about 7-10 working days to complete, but may be affected by weather. Stay tuned right here on the blog for daily progress updates, pictures, and any weather delays if they come up.
Thanks so much for having us and we are excited to get started tomorrow!
