Friday, April 17th: Greetings and welcome to your project blog! 

We are thrilled to be back onsite this year to be prepping and finishing three more buildings in your association. As in previous years, we’ve posted a finishing schedule above to reflect start dates for each building relating to pressure washing and then prepping/painting. We are closely monitoring the weather and will update the prep/paint start date as we finalize them. Once they begin, we are anticipating about 4-6 working days to complete each building. 

You can continue to follow the project’s progress here on the blog as we’ll post daily updated in regards to progress made, any scheduling update or changes, as well as project photos. 

We are looking forward to kicking off exterior painting season at your association and can’t wait to spruce up these three buildings. Thank you all in advance for your cooperation as we work in your association! 

As always please reach out with any questions, comments or concerns as we are navigating this new normal during this global health pandemic. We are committed to the health and safety of our clients and our employees and are following the guidelines put out by the WHO and the CDC.
