Friday, June 22nd: TGIF! 

The crew has swiftly moved through your decks at Mirror Lake and currently have 2 Buildings left! They should be wrapping up today as well. We wanted to say thank you for having us; it has been our pleasure sprucing up your deck floors! Once we've stained your deck floor, we recomment waiting at least 24 hours before returning items to your deck. Have a great rest of the summer! 

Thursday, June 21st: Good morning residents of Mirror Lake!

And they're off! The crew is onsite and starting in at 4012 Building with staining your decks. Once we get through today, we'll let you know how many decks/buildings they are getting through each day and we when you can anticipate us at your deck. Thanks!

Tuesday, June 19th: Good morning! Another rainy day, yet the crew is continuing to pressure wash your buildings. They plan to finish all the buildings with decks and then tomorrow, they'll return to wash those without decks. Thanks! 

Monday, June 18th:

UPDATE: We'll be pressure washing the townhomes on the east side of the association on Wednesday, June 20th. Thanks!

Good morning residents of Mirror Lake. We are excited to be starting your project today. 

The crew is underway pressure washing your buildings and deck floors today. They are starting at the 4012 Building. We'll soon be posting a route map to show where the crew will be so you can know when to expect us. Thanks! 

Once we complete the pressure washing, we'll be back onsite to begin staining your deck floors. We'll also complete the staining in the same order we do the pressure washing.

Friday, June 15th: Hello and welcome to your project blog. You may have made your way to our blog via blue notice, welcome! 

We'll be getting your project underway on Monday, June 18th with pressure washing. We anticipate the washing to take 1-2 days. We'll be pressure washing all of your buildings as well as the deck floors. For this we ask that you please close your windows and then when we begin the staining we ask that you'd remove items from your deck at that time. We'll soon be posting a route map, in which we'll reference project progress and when you can anticipate us at your unit.

Once the substrates have had time to dry out, we'll return onsite to begin prepping and staining your deck floors. Weather permitting, we anticipate we'll be back on Wednesday, June 20th. 

Thanks so much and we're looking forward to working with you!

    Thank you, Dana! I noticed that someone pulled the full bucket of stain inside our building and it is now in the back foyer. Just wanted you to know so that you would know where to pick it up.

    I would love to borrow that bucket of stain. I have the same issue on my railings. At 4008 #206

    Forgot to add that we had everything removed from our patio for 2 weeks but just finally put it all back since I hadn't heard back from our management company. Please let us know if there is plans to come back so I can again remove things.

    Hello - The map makes it look like the backside of the townhomes was not on the path to ever get washed and my building never appeared to be done (4071). Lots of cobwebs and brown spots by the entrance especially. I saw your note about webs returning overnight but I would think the brown spots would have been washed away at least. I tried to notify the management company sooner but was just finally today told to comment here. Thank you.

      Hi Erica- For your project we were onsite to pressure wash all of your buildings and then stain the units with decks. As we've noted, cobwebs and bugs aren't always a true indication of pressure washing completion as they can appear overnight. Our job supervisor will be onsite tomorrow to take a look at the job and I'll make a note to look at the spots. Thanks!

    Kaitlin suggested that I post here so that you can check my balcony railing while you are inspecting at Mirror Lake in the next day or so. Some of the stain was rubbed off on my balcony railing when the pressure washing was done -- I think by the ladder. It is next to the drain spout on the side facing my patio door. I would be willing to re-stain the area if you'd like to leave some stain for me. Please let me know. Thank you!

      Thank you for your quick reply! My address is 4001 Foss Road, #202. It is the balcony railing next to the drain spout (on the inside of the railing facing the condo).

      Hi Mary - Isaac will be onsite early next week and I'll have him take a look at your railing. Can you please send over your address? Thanks! And yes, we can leave some stain for you --- there may even be some onsite. Let me check with our site supervisor and get back to you. Have a great weekend!

        Hi Dana~ Just checking in about an update for the inspection date(s) and the availability of some stain to put on my balcony railing.
        Thank you!

    Two things. When your person inspects the project please check back of 4008. Sane issue with dead bugs etc in the building around the entryway. I haven’t examined the rest if the back but this indicates the power washing wasn’t thorough.

    Also, my balcony remains sticky from the stain job. The stain was applied haphazardly and is thicker in some places than others. I understand that is the case with others as well. This is disappointing since we don’t get this done very often. It seems like your workers were in a big hurry (maybe under pressure?) to finish and couldn’t take great care to do it well.

      Sandi,
      Thank you for your feedback. As I expressed in my response to Mathew, we take all feedback seriously and we assure you that if there is oversight on our part, it will be remedied. To respond to your first concern, I know my colleague David was onsite earlier this morning to address Mathew's concerns and it sounds like we will need to return onsite to take another look. I will say that having pressure washed literally thousands of buildings over the last 18 years, cobwebs/dead bugs, etc...can literally form overnight. I'm not saying that these areas may not need some more thorough washing, but I want to make the community aware of the fact the presence of dead bugs or cobwebs isn't necessarily indicative of oversight.
      Secondly, I'm not surprised to hear that the deck floors are still a bit tacky. Our standard deck floor prep steps include the application of a detergent wash, followed by pressure washing, then applying stain that is the same color/sheen as is what is currently applied. The pressures washing is NOT intended to remove existing coating, so in areas where stain is applied over existing stain, it will take longer for the alkyd stain to penetrate the surface. This is why in the exclusions section of our proposal we specifically name that we are not sanding or removing any existing coating. There are some associations that do elect to have the deck floor stripped and/or sanded before being restained, but this is definitely the exception to the rule, as most find these measures to be too cost prohibitive (it more than doubles the cost) so unless specifically requested, we employ the prep steps as outlined in our proposal.
      Hope this information helps...l'll take a look at your building before week's end.

    How come 4098 was NEVER pressured washed last week. Any reason why my home was signaled out to not have the work done. I pay the same association fees as everyone else. Please explain why i still have cobwebs and bugs that i observed on June 15 still today and ever day since June 15. Where you hired to do the townhomes or just the condos? This is TOTALLY BS not sure who is at fault but you darn well believe i will find out. Thanks for nothing.

      Hi Mathew. Thanks for your comment and for bringing your concerns to our attention. Please excuse our oversight for the blog not clearly specifying that the project still needs to be inspected by your project coordinator David and our job supervisor Obed. Be assured that A)your building was NOT singled out to be excluded, and B) no job is complete until our clients sign off of the project.

      Look for David and Obed to be back onsite this week to inspect the project and rectify any outstanding items.

      Thanks again.

    How long after staining can we put stuff back on the deck?

    Hello, I feel the pressure washing on the 4008 building was not adequate. No pressure wash was done to the siding outside my unit facing the street on the balcony and left of it outside my den, nor does it appear that the entryway area was done. Have you finished this area?

    reply

    • Dana

      19 June 2018 at 13:33 | #

      Morning Sandi- The crew is continuing their pressure washing on the buildings with decks today. I spoke to our crew supervisor and he had not completed the 4008 yet- they'll finish washing it today. Then tomorrow they'll wash the buildings without decks. Thanks for your comment and stay dry!

    Why just staining deck floors and not sides and railings? Mine certainly need it.

      Hi Sandra- We submitted a proposal to stain other decking areas as well, but ultimately we work off the contracted scope of work as approved by your HOA Board and management company. Thanks!

    Do plants need to be removed from the deck on Monday and Wednesday.? I am building 4012
    Thanks!

      Morning Laavanya - I would say that your plants do not need to be removed for the pressure washing portion of the project, but I would say any larger items will need to be removed for the staining portion. We're starting on the 4012 Building, your building. We will post a route map shortly to provide notice to homeowners as to when we'll be at your deck. Thanks!
