Tuesday, June 30th: Good afternoon! 

Welcome to your project blog! We will be getting started on Monday, July 6th with pressure washing. 

We’ll wash 1 Building/day next week so we will get through washing Buildings 1-5 by Friday. We are anticipating to begin staining decks on Building 1 starting on Friday, July 6th. We are projecting the crew will take about 1.5 days to complete the staining on each building. As you can see in the table above that is reflected in the ‘Staining Start Date’ column. The crew will wash and then stain the decks in the order shown on the route map posted above.

We’ll update the dates for washing and then staining the rest of the buildings and we finalize and know the crew’s pace for completion. Thanks! 

Monday, June 15th: Good Morning! 

Welcome to your project blog for the painting project at Ridgewood in Savage. We’ll be kicking off your project in the next week or two. We’ll soon post more information regarding start date and a tentative finishing schedule. 

You can continue to follow the project progress here on the blog as we’ll provide frequent updates on progress and scheduling, share photos, and inform you of any weather delays.

Thank you so much for having us and we are looking forward to being onsite!
