Tuesday, May 5th: Good afternoon! 

Welcome to your project blog for this year’s painting at Bellante in Lakeville. We are thrilled to be onsite and sprucing up 7 of your buildings this spring. 

We’ll begin with pressure washing of the included buildings on set dates — shown above in our Tentative Finishing Schedule. For the pressure washing, we kindly request that you please remove any fragile and/or small items from the outside of your home to allow for safe and unobstructed access for washing. We anticipate the pressure washing of each building to take one day.

Once the substrates have had adequate time to dry, the crew will return to begin prepping and finishing the surfaces designated for painting in 2020. We’ve posted a tentative working schedule above along with a route map and building designation.

The prep and painting of each individual building will take approximately 4-6 working days, with weather being the biggest factor in schedule changes. 

We’ll be posting frequent updates to this blog with project progress, photos, and any weather delay information. Thank you so much for having us and we’re looking forward to getting started at the end of the week!
