Friday, September 9th: So the bad news is that 3/4 painting days this week were also rain days and a ton didn’t get accomplished, but the good news is the weekend and next week’s forecast is sunny, cooler, and without rain! With that being said, our crew is continuing their work on the last building and hopes to be done by early next week. 

Have a great weekend and get out and enjoy the weather!!

Building #4 cleans up pretty nicely!

Monday, August 22nd: Good Morning residents of Bridges! We hope you all had a great weekend and now the cooler temps have gone and we’re back to running Minnesota-hot. Our crew is finalizing elevations on Building #2 and will begin on the front elevation and rear decking of Building #3 today as well.

Friday, August 19th: As we’re having some rain on and off, there will be some delay to due wet surface areas. As soon as we can, we’ll get right back on track with finishing out Building #3 then onto Phase 2. The pressure washing portion of Phase 2 will be getting underway next week for Buildings #4 and #5.

Blue notices are being posted today, on those Buildings’ garage frames giving you some more specifics on what is needed on your end. We’ll be getting both buildings done on Tuesday 8/23 and Wednesday 8/24. 

That’s all for now. We hope you all have a great weekend! 

Thursday, August 18th: The crew at Bridges is continuing on Building #2, as weather conditions have had some buy-in on our painting progress. If Mother Nature cooperates and holds off on the potential rain we’ll be moving onto Building #3 tomorrow. 

Tall, freshly painted, and handsome as ever at Bridges @ Arbor Lakes. 

Tuesday, August 16th: We are staying right on schedule and continuing our work on Building #2. The crew is continuing to work on both the front elevations and rear decks simultaneously. 

Our crew easily balances a paint can and paint brush to cover all deck railing areas. 

Monday, August 15th: Good Afternoon residents of Bridges @ Arbor Lakes. We hope you all had a great weekend and got out to enjoy the beautiful weather! Building #1 is complete and the crew has moved on to Building #2. 

If I may borrow a line from National Lampoon’s Christmas Vaction- “She’s a beaut Clark“. Building #1 is done and just glowing in the afternoon light. 

Painting is underway on the rear decking for Building #2.

Friday, August 12th: With the week coming to a close, Building #1 is also about finished. The last portion of the backside deckings and pillars are complete and we are prepping the front elevations for painting to commence today and finish up tomorrow.

We have a slight change in our project schedule- moving forward we will be working on the front elevations and the back decking areas simultaneously, with a crew too large to focus soley on one elevation we want to be as efficient as possible. Please see below for the updated schedule. 

We hope everyone has a great weekend and can enjoy the ‘Gold Medal’ weather we’re going to have!

The decking and pillars are looking great on the backside of Building #1.

On the front side, she’s all taped and prepped for a paint job. 

Tuesday, August 10th: August in Minnesota and it is HOT, HOT, HOT!!!!! 

Now that the pressure washing in Phase 1 has been completed, the fellas are diligently working on the decking areas on Building #1. We project that to complete the rear elevation of a “rowhome” or Buidling Styles #1-3 above, it will take approximately 2 days. Starting on Building #2 however, the order will be reversed and the guys will complete the front elevations first, then will be completing the rear decking areas.

The rear decking areas are underway on Building #1 on Wednesday.

When staining the pergolas, it’s essential to thoroughly cover the deck floors to prevents drips/stains.

Monday, August 8th: And they’re off! Pressure washing is underway at the Bridges at Arbor Lakes. The rowhome buildings should be completed by the end of the day and prep will get underway starting tomorrow. The mercury will be rising, which will expedite the drying time and guys will get going on the bumpouts and front trim areas. We will post separate notices when it comes time to stain your pergolas, so keep your eyes peeled right here on the blog. 


Samuel, Carlos, and Jonas get pressure washing underway on Monday morning! 

Friday, August 5th: Greetings residents of Bridges at Arbor Lakes! Perhaps you’ve found your way to the blog by way of blue notices posted on your garage door frames. If that is the case, welcome! We’ve been granted the privilege of painting at your property this year and things will get underway with pressure washing on Monday, August 8th: 

There are 5 buildings that are part of this year’s project and they are as follows: 

8102-8114 Main Street

8130-8144 Main Street

12341-12383 82nd Ave

8130-8140 Oakview Lane

8127-8135 Oakview Lane

Among the areas designated for completion are your soffits, window bumpouts, front door frames (including transom windows and sidelights), support pillars, XLD window trim, decorative wood brackets, wood deck railings, pergolas, garage door frames and deck skirts. 

The project will be performed in 2 phases, with the “Rowhomes” being pressure washed and painted first, followed shortly thereafter by painting/staining where applicable. 

 We anticipate that “Phase 1” of pressure washing will take approximately 1-2 days and after the areas have had time to dry, prep and painting will commence. 

As indicated on the notices posted onsite, “the aspect of the project that will require the most cooperation from you will be the staining of your deck pergolas. We kindly ask that when your pergola is scheduled for completion, you move the contents of your deck as needed for safe/unobstructed access to your pergola.”

You can follow the progress right here on the blog as the project progresses and we thank everybody in advance for their cooperation.
