The crew is continuing to complete touch ups at Mississippi Flats. Yesterday, they completed the 5th and 4th floors and now today they’ll continue to make their way down to the lobby. 

It has been our pleasure to be onsite painting at your building. We hope you enjoy your freshly painted ceilings, walls, and door frames and have a great rest of the year!

Thursday, November 8th: Hello!

I think it’s safe to say the winter coats, hats, and gloves are here to stay!

Tuesday, October 9th: 

Welcome to your project blog!

Friday, October 5th: Hello and welcome to your project blog! 

 We’ll be getting started on Monday, 10/15 at your condo building. For this year’s project, we’ll be prepping and painting in your residence hallways and also installing corner guards. More specifically, we’ll be painting your hallway/common area walls/ceilings, stairway walls/ceilings, lobby/vestibule walls and ceilings, and common area door frames. 

We’ll be starting on the 5th floor and making our way down. The ceilings will be the first to be painted, followed by the walls. Once all of the floors have been painted, we’ll transition to the stairwells and common areas. 

We ask that you please use caution when in the hallways as there will be wet paint.

Thanks so much and we’ll see you soon!
