Wednesday, October 17th: Greetings and happy Wednesday! 

The crew is wrapping up the garage painting on the 1150 Building today and this is the last section of garage. It has been our pleasure to aid in the transformation and beautifying process of your Parkway Estates Community!

We are spoiled with another sunny day and it looks like the cheery weather will continue through the end of the week!

Monday, October 15th: Hello and happy Monday!

After a chilly and shockingly snowy wake up call yesterday morning, we are thrilled to see the sun today and resume our ‘fall’ programming!

Friday, October 12th: We can’t tell you how good it is to write ‘Painting In Progress’ on our blogs today!

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!

Thursday, October 11th: Good morning! 

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. We are hopeful the crew will resume their regularly scheduled programming tomorrow. 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 tomorrow. Thanks!

Monday, October 8th: Good morning! We hope you all had a great weekend! 

All of this rain has halted our crew painting the garages at Parkway Estates. They’ll resume once the weather allows. Thanks!

Friday, October 5th: TGIF and good afternoon!

Exactly our thoughts after this weeks seemingly never-ending rain.

It’s too wet on the brick and concrete to paint the garages and exterior of 1160. The crews will resume as the weather allows. Thanks and have a great weekend!

Thursday, October 4th: Greetings! 

The crew is prepping and applying the primer to the raised garage bases, we’re dialing in the color and will apply that once it’s finalized. Thanks!

Pretty happy about these clear and blue skies!!

Wednesday, October 3rd: Good afternoon! 

Since the weather isn’t optimal for painting, the crew is working on prep work on the garages today. We are painting the concrete and brick around the raised parking platforms. They’ll begin painting as weather allows. Thanks!

Monday, September 17th: Good afternoon!

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!

The crews are holding steady at the 1505 and 1513.

Tuesday, July 31st: Greetings residents of Parkway Estates in Burnsville! Welcome to your project blog for the exterior painting project. We are eager to be back onsite and refreshing your buildings. 

We’ll be painting the exterior of all three of your buildings, of which is an accent band on the brick as well as an accent color on your divider walls. We can’t wait to see hows the rebranding from the interior painting intergrates into the exterior painting! 

Tomorrow we’ll be onsite to pressure wash the 1501 Building, which faces Burnsville Pkwy. Once the building substrates have had time to dry the crew will resume onsite and begin their prep work and painting. 

We are anticipating the entire painting project to take about 2 to 2 1/2 months to complete with weather playing the biggest factor in our schedule. You can stay fully apprised of project progress, updates, and any delays here on the blog. 

Thanks so much and we’ll see you tomorrow!
