The Burlington - St. Paul 2018 Painting Project
Greetings and welcome to the project blog for your exterior painting project at The Burlington in St. Paul! We are looking forward to being onsite with you!
Wednesday, October 24th: Greetings and good afternoon!
The crew is taking care of the remaining interior porches today. Then apart from our walk throughs we are complete! We've been onsite just over 3 months and we love the updated and new color scheme for your buildings. It has been our pleasure working with and for you this summer. Thanks for your cooperation and patience as we painted the exterior of your buildings and your interior porches.
Monday, October 22nd: Good afternoon residents of the Burlington.
The crew has finished on the 1150 Building and will be completing touch up in the next couple of days. We are also painting in your porches and should have that complete in the next few days.

We have crews continuing to prep and paint the railings and entry way on the 1150 Building. They are also painting porches on the 1150 and 1180 Buildings. We are anticipating the crew to complete the 1150 Building on or before Friday, 10/19.

Thanks so much for your patience as Mother Nature decided to put a stop on our progress over the last week. With what looks like clear weather for the next week, our crews are eager to get your project complete. Thanks and have a great weekend!

Is it true?! There is no rain in sight for the next several days!
Though it isn't raining today, it is still too wet to be applying paint to the exterior of the building. Because the porches are covered, we are good to go on that front! We are hopeful that the crews will resume their regularly scheduled programming. Thanks!
Wednesday, October 10th: Here we are again, deja vu with another rainy day. I suppose we can chalk this one up to Milli Vanilli and their hit 'Blame it on the Rain.' We're hopeful to resume prep and painting of 1150 tomorrow. Thanks!

The border battle was a game for the books, but not where either is excited over a win or defeated with a loss. Instead, the green and purple teams ended their first show down of this season in a tie. Missed kicks, defense misses, and penalties piloted the game in a flip flop of emotions. The teams will face each other again on the Sunday after Thanksgiving, in which I'm sure both teams will be all-in to get a W!

Wednesday, July 11th: Hello and welcome to the project blog for the upcoming painting project at The Burlington in St. Paul! This project has been in the making for quite a while and we are ready to put the plan to action!
We are going to be painting the exterior of the building and you can view a mock-up of this area on the rear of the building and as you can see, the color scheme is changing quite a bit. We are excited to be a part of the new aesthetic and look!
We are set to tentatively begin next week, July 16th. And we'll begin with pressure washing the building to ready surfaces for prep and painting, which we ask that you kindly close your windows for the pressure washing.
Stay tuned here on the blog for continued progress updates, photos, and any other project-related info you may need to know.
Thanks so much and we'll see you onsite soon!
