Friday, October 28th: Happy Friday folks! Issac and Alfred were onsite today taking care of our touch up list and making sure we have crossed our T's and dotted our I's. It has been a pleasure working with and for you at Park Crest and we appreciate all of your feedback and constant communication. We hope you all have a great rest of the year!

Monday, October 24th: Great news, we have the majority of your project complete and are working to identify all areas that may need touch ups, cleaning up, or any other attention. We want to make sure you are all completely satisfied with our work and we want to thank you again for your cooperation and patience as this project has proved to be a bit more challenging than we thought.

Friday, October 21st: Happy Friday folks! The weekend is right around the corner. If you're a Gopher fan, it's Homecoming this weekend. They play Rutgers at 11am on Saturday and there's a parade on campus tonight if you're looking for something fun to do. 

Painting continues in the courtyard area and on the final side of the building.

Thursday, October 20th: Good morning residents of Park Crest. We hope you're having a great week thus far. It seems as though the crisp and cool fall weather is here to stay. We're continuing to make our way around the courtyard and finish up the painting.

Tuesday, October 18th: We're going to keep on, keepin' on over in the courtyard at Park Crest. The crew is pushing to complete the project this week as long as Mother Nature doesn't throw any curveballs our way. But it looks like we're in the clear with dry weather for the rest of the week.

Courtyard prep and paint continues through the week. 

Monday, October 17th: Good afternoon residents of Park Crest. We hope you all had a great weekend and enjoyed the beautiful weather! Painting holds steady in the courtyard. We're hopeful to be done by the end of the week. 

Friday, October 14th: Happy Friday everyone! We're looking forward to the weekend ahead. We are continuing to make our way around to paint the courtyard.

Tuesday, October 11th: Our apologies for any confusion with pressure washing yesterday. There was some miscommunication with the notices and blog updates. Dana, our Office Manager was in Chicago supporting her sisters run the Chicagao Marathon this weekend and we apologize for any inconvenience this caused. The south elevation/courtyard has been pressure washed and this morning we are working to get a scissor lift into the courtyard area to access the higher areas of the building. We anticipate the courtyard taking about 1-2 weeks to complete.

Tuesday, October 4th: We're hoping that this rain clears out soon and we can get back to working on the west side. Thanks!

Monday, October 3rd: Good afternoon residents of Park Crest. We hope you enjoyed the gorgeous weather we had this weekend! The crew is working on the northwest side of the building as well as the west side.

The lift is close to turning the corner to the west side of building.

Friday, September 30th: Happy Friday ya'll! It is such a beautiful day and we hope you're as excited as we are for this sun-shiny weather! And the better news is that there is a several-day stretch of this weather. The crew is still trucking along on the north side and also pressure washing the west side so we can seemlessly move from one area to the next. 

Any golf fans? Maybe you've been following the Ryder Cup frenzy in Chaska. It looks pretty awesome! We'll be cheering on Dustin Johnson, Jordan Spieth, and the rest of Team USA. Have a great weekend!

Wednesday, September 28th: Good afternoon residents of Park Crest. We're still making our way across the north end of building. Good news, we're scheduled to pressure wash the west side of the building on Friday. 

Park Crest prep

Monday, September 26th: We hope everyone had a great weekend. We're continuing on the north end of the building and are hopeful with the weather's cooperation we will complete it this week. We will likely move ahead to pressure wash the west elevations and courtyard this week, an exact day is TBD. We'll then begin prep and painting in these areas simultaneous to that of the north end to expedite the finishing schedule. 

Again, we want to reiterate our gratitude for everyone's patience on this project. With all of the rain we've had, there have been instances of prolonged areas being covered and we appreciate your understanding to this circumstance. But you can be assured that we are committed to working as diligently as possible to ensure a great end result. While we can't control the weather, you can continue to count on our responsiveness and thorough communication every step of the way. 

Friday, September 23rd: Happy Friday everyone! We hope you all had a great week. Our crew is onsite continuing their work on the north side of the building.

Thursday, September 22nd: Hello residents at Park Crest. We hope you all survived the crazy rain last night and are safe. As you could imagine, with all the rain things are pretty wet and our crew won't be out today. When things dry a bit, most likely tomorrow, they'll be back in action. 

Tuesday, September 20th: Our crew continues to work on the north side of the building.

The guys are going strong at Park Crest.

Monday, September 19th: Happy Monday residents of Park Crest. Our crew is continuing their work on the north side of the building. Once we get the north side completed we'll move on to the west side of the building. We're hopeful Mother Nature will pull through this week. Stay tuned for more progress updates this week. 

Friday, September 16th: Happy Friday everyone! We have a longer update this week so buckle up. We didn't make it through an entire week without rain, but we are doing our best to work around Mother Nature. While we were hoping to have the East/North elevations completed by the end of the week, that will likely not happen, so we are looking at completing those areas by early next week. And the crew will not be working on Sunday. 

Once we start on the West elevation east to mid next week, residents will need to be mindful that access to the Nicollet entrance will be limited, as the aerial boom will be limited in use and for safety reasons, we would encourage people, if possible, to enter the building by alternative means while work is being performed, which we anticipate will take about 1 week. 

The the final phase will be the courtyard. We wil be utilizing a different aerial lift for these areas which will be delivered onsite and again, we encourage residents in the courtyard to exercise caution as needed. 

Lastly, we've had some concerns about some overspray and in speaking with the job supervisor Alfred, he has assured that the crew has taken, and will continue to take the necessary measures to prevent overspray. 

In other news, it's a big weekend for football in Minnesota. The Border Battle showcasing the Vikings vs. Packers for the regular season home opener at U.S. Bank Stadium is on Sunday night. Our office is divided and sporting their team apparel today. It should be a good game!

Monday, September 12th: Good afternoon residents of Park Crest. We hope you all enjoyed the weekend and the sunnier skies and cooler temps! Our crew is finishing up the east side of the building today. They're also covering park of the north side to prep for painting.

Friday, September 9th: So unfortunately with 3/4 painting days being rain days this week a whole lot didn't get accomplished. We apologize that the units with window coverings/plastic on them will remain so until rain subsides and we can prime and paint. Depending on how the weather holds up, it could be this afternoon. Just as a head's up, the crew will most likely be onsite Saturday. They've been informed to take up only the space necessary for the lift so the other parking spots are available. Stay tuned for further updates and have a great weekend!

Continuing into the weekend is the 38th Annual Burnsville Fire Muster! And with the weather looking perfect for being outside, go check it out! 

Weather Forecast Sept 9th 16th

Wednesday, September 7th: After a long holiday weekend and some rainy weather- here we are. As you may have noticed, we brought out our 'big guns' today with a major lift onsite. The lift will help up to reach the higher elevations. Although we've had some rain delays, as soon as it clears up our crew will be back at it. 

Friday, September 2nd: Good morning residents of Park Crest! We've posted a map of the building for reference of when painting will be completed in your area. We'll begin on the east side of the building on 1st Avenue, then the north side on 125th Street, and then the west side on Nicollet Avenue. Homeowners on the 3rd and 4th floors should follow the blog for our finishing schedule for those units. Since those areas can only be accessed by the lift it will be very apparent where the crew will be working.

We'll finish up pressure washing the lower areas of the outside today, but when the lift is onsite, Tuesday 9/6 we'll be performing additional cleaning on the areas that weren't reachable by ladder. 

We wish you all a great holiday weekend! 

Thursday, September 1st: And we are off!   The crew and Nick Roell were on the property this morning starting the pressure washing.   The pressure washing will take several days to complete.   The goal over the next two days is to wash all the areas that are accessible by ladder and complete the remaining pressure washing/ cleaning on Tuesday, September 6th when the aerial lifts arrive.   

When the aerial lift arrives on Tuesday, we ask that any residents who typically park on the east elevation parking lot to refrain from doing so over the next week.   We will need that space to safely operate the boom lift.

Reaching tall to pressure wash the best we can until an aerial lift arrives next week.

Tuesday, August 30th:  Perhaps you've found your way to our blog by way of email from your property manager, Justin at Paradise & Associates, welcome! The painting project with be completed over the next 3-4 weeks, depending on the weather Mother Nature throws at us. 

Our crew will be pressure washing the perimeter of the building later this week and the painting will commence after the holiday next week. We'll complete pressure washing for residents on the courtyard at a later date. We'll need a different lift for this portion, so stay tuned when that will happen.

Stay tuned here for ongoing project updates as they will be provided 2-3 times per week. Thanks so much for having us and we're looking forward to getting things underway!

    I was wondering how you will be determining and correcting the repairs? Previously I sent an email with photos,, but no repairs have been made. I am afraid you will "close the books" on this project and I will have ruined screens.
    Thanks!

      Hi Pat - Thank you for your note. Isaac has received your earlier message as well. We are currently in the process of compiling a list of all outstanding areas that need our attention and your areas for repair are amongst others on this list. Please reach out if you have any further concerns.
      Thanks so much!

    Since our last communication two weeks ago, a worker was on our deck shortly after with a damp rag to clean off the overspray. This does not take care of the issue. The deck railing is still full of overspray. Now we have noticed an area that was not painted at all, and we now have paint that is chipping and flaking off along the lower east side of our deck. I need these issues resolved.

    I have about a two foot crack/seam that needs caulking.Will this be done at a later date? Also is there going to be touch up paint available for very small spots that are missed?

      Steve,
      Thanks for the message. If at all possible, can you send me pictures of the area in need of caulk/touchups and your unit number/building location? send to isaac@roellpainting.com
      And yes, there will be leftover paint.

    My deck railing has overspray all over it. Is there something that we can use to get rid of it? If not, someone will need to come through to clean it up.

    reply

    • Isaac

      24 September 2016 at 14:23 | #

      Janet-first of all, our apologies. Despite our thorough measures covering, because of the elevation and weather conditions, we've found this project to be uniquely challenging. The good news is that we are using an acrylic paint which is very manageable to clean. Please remind me of your unit number (4th floor NE corner?)and location again and we will clean the railings. Thanks for letting us know.

    How soon can I expect the plastic to be removed from the north side of my unit? The painting around my north window and my deck was completed on Saturday. My window and deck have been covered since last Thursday, and I have had to store my patio furniture in my bedroom since Thursday also. I would have thought that the plastic on my unit would have been removed when the crews returned today.

      Hi Janet-
      Thanks for the note. I know our guys usually err on the side of caution and have left the plastic up to prevent overspray from happening. In some cases this overspray can travel up to 100ft, so although they're not working on your unit directly, we want to prevent the paint from traveling to unwanted areas. Since there was some rain this morning, our crew couldn't complete as much as they had wanted. Upon their return and completion of the area, we'll get that plastic removed no later than Wednesday.
      Thank you for your cooperation and patience.

    I am noticing a lot of paint overspray on my patio railing, are there plans to remove this? None of the railings on 1st floor east side patios/balconies were covered with plastic.

      15 September 2016 at 13:14 | #

      Wendy,
      Thanks for your message and please accept our sincere apologies. While we do our best to prevent overspray, anytime you are working at such high elevations, there's always the possibility that this can occur. We are using an acrylic product so clean up is very manageable and we will certainly remove this at your unit and anywhere else where it is present. Your job supervisor Alfred, as well as myself will be performing a series of inspections to ensure that this issue as well as any touchups, etc.. are resolved. Thanks again.

    My unit is on the fourth floor, northeast corner. My east Windows have been sealed for the past three days. How soon can I expect the painting on that side of my unit to be completed and the plastic over my windows to be removed?

      13 September 2016 at 14:15 | #

      Janet- Thanks for the message. Obviously we've been wrestling with Mother Nature for the better part of last week. With that being said, provided the weather cooperates we should complete your area within the next 2-3 days. Our apologies for the inconvenience posed. It's just simply that once we prep, to maximize efficiency, we leave the plastic in place. Hopefully the weather holds and we'll be out of your hair in no time. The removal of plastic will be an obvious indicator we've completed the area. Thank you for your patience.

    Don't see answer to question about removing the plants from our balconies. Can we just move pots to center of balcony?

    reply

    • Dana

      06 September 2016 at 14:08 | #

      Yes, you can move the bigger items/plants to the center of your decks. We'd just ask that you remove smaller items like wind chimes or "knick knack" things since these are more easily bumped around from washing. Thanks so much for the inquiry and please reach out if you have any further questions.
      Thanks!

    Do you have any idea about when you will be washing the south side of the building ?
    I am on the 3rd floor SE corner but my deck is on the south side.

    reply

    • Dana

      02 September 2016 at 15:36 | #

      Hi Connie -
      Thanks for the note- We'll be doing the south side of the building last, but since you're also on the east side, washing will be on Tuesday, 9/6 for the 3rd and 4th floors of east side.
      As for the south side and courtyard, we are still determining a finishing timeline, but this will happen the 2nd half of September. Washing will likely occur sooner, but we'll be sure to give you ample time to move items as needed. We want to be as proactive as possible. Keep checking the blog for updates and we'll keep you in the loop.
      Thanks and have a great holiday weekend!

    We are on the 3rd Floor West side, will you be working on this section next week?
    Should we be removing all plants and furniture from the deck?
    How long should we keep them removed?
    Will you be working Friday and then not again until next Tuesday?

    reply

    • Dana

      02 September 2016 at 14:17 | #

      Good morning Dianna-
      Thank you for your inquiry. We likely won't get to your side of the building until the week of September 18th. So no need to remove your things from your deck at this point. Once the crew gets going we'll have a better idea of how long each section/unit will take and we will update you accordingly. Stay tuned to the blog as that's where we'll post any pertinent information and changes to schedule if need be.

      We've just uploaded a finishing schedule so you as homeowners have a better idea of when the crew will be working on your area/unit.

      Our crew will be back on Tuesday with the lift, when they'll finish pressure washing those high, hard to reach spots.

      Please don't hesitate to reach out with any other questions!

    I did not get the news about the power washing until I read the email this morning. I am on the 4th floor and did not do anything to move my plants and furniture in the balcony and left my windows opened. Am I going to find a big surprise when I get home this evening?

    reply

    • Nick Roell

      01 September 2016 at 20:06 | #

      Thanks for note! No you shouldn't find a surprise when you get home this evening. The only washing that we are able to complete over the next couple days are areas in which we can reach with a 40 ft ladder. Your unit is above that area.

      However, once the aerial lift is onsite next week, we will be hand cleaning or washing your unit. Please check back in with us here at the blog to check out the schedule. The intent of the notice was to remove small personal belongings (wind chimes for example) that could get broken during washing. If you leave your furniture outside during the rain, it likely will be fine during pressure washing.

      Thanks for the inquiry and don't hesitate to reach out with any other questions!

    I am a resident of Park Crest on Nicollet and I assume you will be painting the walls on our decks also? I am on the SE corner with a deck on the south side 3rd floor but not on the court yard.

      Hi Connie,
      Thank you for your inquiry. Yes, the crew will be painting the walls of your decking areas. Crews should be out there today to power wash as much of the outer areas as they can.
      We hope this helps. Please reach out with further questions. Thanks!
