Today we are taking a pause in honor and remembrance of those lost on 9/11 and we pay tribute to the heroes that day brought forth. We will never forget.

Tuesday, September 10th: Greetings! 

We’ll be pressure washing Buildings #4 and #5 on Wednesday, 9/11. Please remove any fragile or small items from the outside of your home to allow for safe an unobstructed access while washing- thank you! Washing these buildings will take 1-2 days/building. Then once the substrates have dried, we’ll return to begin prepping and painting the select included trim surfaces. 

The crew is almost done with Building 1 and will then move to Building 2, which is already prepped and finally onto 3. Continue to check back as we’ll update the projected finishing schedule as often as we can. Thanks!

Friday, August 30th: Hello and TGIF! 

Those roads we drive on the way to the offices and homes we work and live in…somebody built ’em. May we take a moment to reflect  on the principles of hard work that make this country great! As we celebrate Labor Day, we’d like to take a moment to recognize our diligent and hard working crews. Oh, and eat some food on a stick too. Happy Labor Day every one!

The crew has returned to pressure wash the remainder of Buildings 1, 2, and 3. We anticipate to return on Tuesday, 9/3 to begin prepping and painting at Building 1. Thanks and have a great weekend!

The crew will be onsite on Wednesday to begin pressure washing Buildings 1, 2, and 3. This will take them through the end of the week and then they’ll return on Tuesday, 8/3 to begin prepping and painting on Building #1. Thank you so much for having us and we’re looking forward to being onsite over the next month or so!

Friday, August 23rd: Good afternoon! 

We’ll be posting notices shortly to provide details of the upcoming painting project at Basset Creek. The majority of your project will consist of pressure washing the select areas and then prep and painting the trim areas. These areas include your window trim, garage door and front door patio door frames, entry pillars, deck support posts, skirt boards, and a few other trim areas. 

We’ll be posting more specific details as we get them finalized. We’ll be updating the project blog with frequent progress updates, photos, and any weather delays should they come up. We will also post a route map and projected finishing schedule. 

Thanks so much and we look forward to being onsite!

      Hi Jack – Thank you! We’ve recently switched platforms and are really digging this new site! We’ve washed Buildings 1 – 3 and will soon begin our prep and painting, starting at Building 1. We’ll post more notices in advance of washing more buildings. So you can keep an eye out for the notice or continue to check the project blog as we’ll update it with scheduling information as well. Thanks!
