Railing samples painted

Greetings and welcome to the official blog for the railing painting project at Village Brownstones in Minneapolis!


Thursday, July 27th: Greetings residents of Village Brownstones in Minneapolis. We hope this message finds you well. You may have noticed that we’ve been onsite today prepping and painting a couple sample metal railing sections at your community. Dating back to March, we’ve been working with your management company and HOA board to determine the best course of action to address rusting/flaking areas on metal railings.  It was determined that the focus for this year would be addressing the areas exhibiting the most prominent failure. In order to perform these isolated touchups, it was necessary to get 2 color matches, as the existing finishes age differently depending on the elevation. Southern exposures typically exhibit higher degrees of color fade so a “1 size fits all” approach wasn’t going to work for this particular project.

Today, Victor and Francisco focused on some concentrated areas, extensively scraped/sanded, primed and topcoated the areas, and the completed sections are marked with orange tape for the board’s review. What we are hoping to achieve through this first step, is color approval for both the “non-faded” and “faded” colors, so that the resulting aesthetic is acceptable. While the color matches won’t be perfect, the objective from the outset was to make them more seamless than historical attempts at similar touchups by other painting contractors.

We will await confirmation from the board and look forward to coming back onsite to get those railings into tip-top shape.
