Water’s Edge Manor – Hugo

Project on Hold; will resume in Spring 2021

Greetings and welcome to your project blog for the upcoming painting project at Water’s Edge Manor in Hugo. We are thrilled to be onsite with you!

Thursday, October 22nd: Greetings! 

Well, the snow came fast and furious. We are going to put your project on HOLD and resume in the spring with the  remainder of the staining to 5 decks.

Thanks so much for your continued patience. We’ve learned that Mother Nature has her own agenda and we have to work around the elements — rain putting the biggest delay on your project the week of October 12th.

We hope you all have a great rest of the year and we’ll see you in the spring. Thank you!

We are back at it! 

We thank you all so much for your patience as we are doing our best to complete this staining project quickly and have run into a few stops because of weather.

Welcome to your project blog for the upcoming decking project at Water’s Edge Manor. We are looking forward to being onsite with you! 

Our will be getting started on Monday, 9/21 with pressure washing the included decking areas starting at the beginning of the route. We are anticipating to wash about 10-15 decks/day and will be finished with the washing by Friday, 9/25. We’ll be pressure washing in advance of the staining of deck skirts, posts, and wood deck floors. 

Thank you in advance for removing the items from your decking for unobstructed access while washing and then staining. We are hopeful to start the staining at Building 1 on Thursday, 9/24, weather permitting starting again at the beginning of the route.  We know this project will impact your daily routine and we will do our best to complete the project promptly so everyone can enjoy the remained of the summer/fall and return contents to their decks as soon as they’re able.

You can continue to follow the project progress here on the blog as we’ll post frequent updates, share photos, and let you know of delays should they come up. 

Have a great weekend and we’ll see you on Monday!
