Thursday: Prep IN PROGRESS; Painting to resume this afternoon
Greetings and welcome to the official project blog for your painting project at Somerset 19 in Mendota Heights! We are looking forward to working with and for you!
Thursday, July 20th: Good morning! The crew is working on prep this morning and will resume painting this afternoon after the substrates have had some time to dry out. Stay tuned here on the blog - we'll be sure to keep you updated of any further delays.
The rain will not stop the crew- prep work until everything dries out to paint.

Wednesday, July 19th: Good morning Somerset 19! The annual Aquatennial Celebration kicks off today with various events in Minneapolis. Some of which include a blood drive, a tennis classic, food trucks & lawn games, the Torchlight 5k, then followed by the Torchlight Parade. The Minnesota Aquatennial was started to celebrate the city's lakes, rivers, and streams and while the city still incorporates 'water-loving' events, it also includes events centered around Minneapolis culture, family, and fun. Here's the link to the official website with all the details for the 4-day celebration!
The crews at Somerset have started painting in select areas and they will continue to complete the prep work as well.

Thursday, July 13th: Good morning and welcome to your project blog! We are looking forward to being onsite with you all.
This summer's project consists of painting on the rear elevations of the buildings. More specifically we'll be finishing the soffits, siding, fascia, wood window trim, door frames, support pillars, screen frames, deck skirts, deck railings, rooftop railings, porch ceilings, and front door/frames.
We'll begin on Friday, 7/14 with pressure washing the exterior of the buildings. We kindly ask that you remove any small and/or personal items from the outside of your home/deck to allow for safe and unobstructed access for washing and painting. Additionally, we request that you please close your windows during this time. 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 the included areas. We anticipate this will begin on Monday, 7/17.
In total, we anticipate the entire project to take approximately 3 weeks to complete, but that may be affected by weather. Please stay tuned, right here on the blog, for progress and project updates, pictures, and any changes to the schedule due to weather or otherwise that may come up.
Thanks so much and we'll see you on Friday!
