Wednesday, June 3rd: Good afternoon and welcome to your project blog!

We will be getting started on Friday, 6/3 with pressure washing Buildings 1, 2, and 3 – labeled ‘Phase I’ in the map above. We kindly ask that you remove any fragile and/or small items from the outside of your home to allow safe and unobstructed access while washing. We anticipate washing will take 3-4 days to complete. 

Once the substrates have had adequate time to dry, the crew will return to begin prep and painting areas designated for painting this year. To note, only select areas and elevations of each building will be painted. These are shown above in red and yellow. We’ll also be painting the garage fronts.

We are anticipating each individual building will take 5-7 working days to complete. We will post subsequent notices in advance of pressure washing and then painting in ‘Phase II.’ 

You can continue to follow the project progress here on the blog as we’ll be provide frequent updates and use it as a tool to inform residents of scheduling or weather delays. Thanks so much! 

We’re looking forward to being back onsite and refreshing your buildings!
