Tuesday, May 21st: Good afternoon residents of Talus!
The interior crew is wrapping up the lobby areas today and we've started to prep the exterior of the 3905 Building. With the impending afternoon and evening rain, our crew is only prepping select areas. We'll begin painting as the weather is favorable- thanks!

We thought this was fitting as the season finale of Game of Thrones was last night we are unfortunately seeing unseasonable low temperatures!
The interior crew is taking care of the remaining lobby areas and will wrap up tomorrow. The exterior crew is in a holding pattern as the colors are being finalized and the weather cooperates. We need the temperature to be a bit warmer than this---shooting for this week to begin onthe 3945 Building.

Tuesday, May 14th: Hello!
We'd like to clarify our pressure washing schedule- we will be pressure washing and prepping and painting the 3945 Building in its entirety before we pressure wash and then prep/paint the 3905 Building. We are sorry for any of the confusion caused. This means if you're in the 3905 Building, you may put your deck contents back onto your deck. We'll be providing notice for when you'll need to remove your items as we near that portion of the project. Thanks!

The crews are wrapping up on the interior areas of the 3945 and 3905 Buildings. And then we'll begin pressure washing the decks and exterior of the 3945 Building starting tomorrow, 5/14. We'll start at the SW corner of the Building, near unit 127 and make our way counter clockwise around the Building.
Please remove all items from your decks for the pressure washing of the building and deck so our crew has unobstructed access. Thank you in advance for your cooperation!
We anticipate the pressure washing to take about 4-6 working days to complete. We'll then move onto pressure washing the 3905 Building.
In regards to door painting, we appreciate those who have contacted us to schedule appointments- thank you! And a friendly reminder if you haven't done so, to please make an appointment to have your door painted in the open position. After Saturday, we'll be assessing the remaining doors and compiling our final schedule.

Wednesday, April 24th: Good afternoon residents of Talus!
The full crew is off and running at the 3945 Building. We are starting on the 3rd floor and will make our way down to the 1st floor in the coming weeks. Initally we'll prep sections of the hallway - cover carpets, baseboards, wall fixtures, etc and then begin painting the door frames and walls. At a later part of the 3rd floor portion, we'll paint the residence doors and this will require participation from homeowners as we prefer to paint the doors in the open position. But we'll post subsequent notices regarding all of the specific details. Thanks!

We'll be awaiting color approval before we get rolling on your project at Talus! Thanks for patience and we're looking forward to working with you!
Monday, April 22nd: Hello!
It seems there is some color-debate about what we'll be applying in your hallways on the walls and doors/frames. So today, we've applying some samples to residence alcove walls and doors on the 3rd floor of the 2945 Building.
We'll be onsite in full force tomorrow to begin your project. As stated earlier, we'll be starting on the 3rd floor of the 3945 Building. Thanks so much for your patience as the details are being ironed out!
Paper, tape , and plastic to apply the color samples.

Welcome to your project specific blog. Here, we'll be posting updates regarding project progress, scheduling updates, any changes to the schedule if they arise, and then photos as well. Check back as we'll be updating several times a week.
Your painting project includes the prep and painting of several interior areas of the 3905/3945 Buildings. We'll be finishing your common area, residence, elevator, and laundry doors/frames. We will also be prepping and painting your entry vestibule, stairwell lobbies, and stairwell walls. Included also are the 1st/2nd/3rd floor corridor and laundry room walls.
The crew will be starting on the 3rd floor of the 3945 Building on Monday, 4/22. As we get going on the project and can gauge the crews' pace we'll post an estimated schedule of time to complete each floor.
The painting of your resident doors will take place near the end of the project, as we'll need cooperation from each homeowner to paint the doors in the open position. We'll be providing further notice will specific information regarding the doors as that part of the project approaches.
Thanks so much and we're looking forward to getting things underway on Monday!
