It’s BYOP(oncho) today…

None the less, we got your pressure washing done!

Friday, June 15th: Hello and TGIF! 

We have almost made it to the weekend and just as well to the start of your painting project. We’ll begin on Monday with pressure washing the first 2 buildings. We’ve posted a route map in which we’ve designated building numbers. We’ll be starting with the western most building and moving east and then looping back towards the start.  This will be our route for the pressure washing as well as the painting. 

We’ve also posted a finishing schedule that we will continually update with pressure washing dates, and prep and painting start dates. This will help you to know when we’ll be painting at your unit. 

Next week we’ll be working to get color matches for your buildings and trim- note: if anyone has any extra paint from previous projects for the trim, we’d gladly take the color information if you want to call our office: 763-559-5296. Thanks! 

We anticipate to be onsite for 6-8 weeks with weather being the biggest factor in length. Stay tuned here on the blog as we’ll update the schedule, post progress updates and photos, and keep you apprised of any delays should they come up. 

Thanks again for having us and we’re looking forward to getting started next week!
