Wednesday, May 13th: Good afternoon! 

Welcome to your project blog for the upcoming painting project at Pike Lake Manor in New Brighton. We are thrilled to be onsite with you! 

We’ll be getting started on Friday, May 15th with pressure washing. We kindly ask that you close your windows at this time and remove any small items from the exterior of your home to allow unobstructed access for the washing. Once we’ve completed the washing you may return any items to their place.

Once the substrates have had time to dry, we’ll begin prepping and painting your gutters, mansard soffits, entry support structures, gas meters/piping, front doors and frames, building address plaques, garage siding, wrought iron entry railings, misc. vents, electric meter banks, mailbox stands, AC sleeves, and overhead garage doors. We anticipate to return on Monday, May 18th to begin our prep and painting.

We’ll be starting on the 2100 Building and working clockwise along 23rd Avenue and then down 21st Avenue. We will finish then in the inner circle on your garages. 

Towards the end of the project, we’ll be painting your resident doors in the open position, which will require participation from each homeowner. We will set ‘Door Painting Dates’ and post a scheduling tool here on the blog that will allow you to sign up for a timeframe that works best for you to be home to have the door painted while open. Look for those details in the coming week or two. Thanks!

In total, we are projecting the project to take about 3-4 weeks to complete, but our work should have little impact on your daily routine. We’d like to thank the Board and all the residents for having us onsite. We are looking forward to sprucing up various areas of your buildings.
