Welcome to your project blog for the painting project at Rice Lake Woods. The crew we be onsite on Friday, May 29th to start with pressure washing of Building #1 and #2. We kindly ask that you remove any small or personal items from the outside of your home for the pressure washing to allow for safe and unobstructed access for washing. 

Once the substrates have had time to dry, the crew will return to begin prepping and finishing of the included areas of your home: siding, soffits, misc. fascia, front support brackets, deck posts/skirts, wood deck railings/spindles, front door frames, garage doors/frames, and previously painted patio door frames. 

We are projecting to be back and start at the first building on Monday, June 1st. This is a large project that will likely take about a month to complete all of the buildings. 

We will soon post a project finishing schedule so you can know when to anticipate painting at your building. We will be updating this blog site frequently with progress, photos, and any changes to the schedule or weather delays should they come up!

Thank you again for having us and we’re looking forward to being onsite on Friday, May 29th!
