Welcome to your project blog for the upcoming painting at Phalen Crossing II in St. Paul. We are looking forward to refreshing the exterior of your buildings. 

We have a crew that will be kicking off on Monday, 4/26 with pressure washing. We will begin with washing Buildings 1, 2, 3, and 4 which will likely take the crew through Wednesday, 4/28 to complete.

We kindly request that you please remove all small personal items from the exterior of your home for the pressure washing to allow for safe and unobstructed access for washing. Pressure washing will take multiple days to complete.   Once the washing is complete, you may return the items to their normal place.    

After the surfaces have had time to dry (about 5-7 days) the crew will return to begin their prep and painting on Building 1. We are projecting this prep/painting to begin on Monday, 5/3. 

We are projecting the entire project, all 8 Buildings to take about 6-8 weeks to complete. We will begin to wash another grouping of buildings as were progress onto the 3rd Building. Look for updates to the tentative finishing schedule above and also more blue notices posted regarding washing. 

Weather will have the biggest impact on our scheduling so please check back here for updates pertaining to rain days. 

You can continue to follow the project progress here on the blog as we’ll post updates, share photos, update the finishing schedule and alert you of any weather delays. Please reach out to the contacts below if you have any questions. 

We’re looking forward to getting started next week!
