Thursday, July 27th: Good morning residents of Wedgewood. We hope you’ve had a good week thus far! 

The crews are onsite completing touch ups to the buildings that were marked during our final walk-through. Also, some additional add on carpentry is being completed. 

It has been out pleasure working with and for you this summer and we hope you enjoy your freshly painted homes. Have a great rest of the summer!

Monday, July 17th: Good morning! We hope you all had a great weekend and enjoyed the gorgeous and hot weather! 

The carpentry crew will tentatively be onsite Wednesday, 7/19 to work on/replace a few decks and misc. tasks. Once the carpenters are finished, we’ll have the painters come back to prime/paint areas that were recently replaced/fixed. Thanks!

Tuesday, July 11th: Hello! We hope you stayed cool today- it’s going to be a hot week!

The carpenters will be back onsite later this week to wrap up their work- they’re also waiting on some project specific materials for some of the decks. After the carpenters are done, we’ll have the painters come back to finish the areas that were repaired. 

We’ll see you later this week!

Monday, July 10th: Good morning Wedgewood. We hope you all had a great weekend! 

The crews are completing their blue-tape touchups on Buildings #18-#22 today. Pictures to come soon.

Friday, July 7th: It seems to be a monsoon of rain in Woodbury. The crew has paused their prep and painting and depending on the amount of rain and how quickly sufaces dry out- they’ll be back onsite as it allows.

 Good morning and happy Friday! With the short week, we have no complaints of it already being Friday. It looks like a pretty good weather weekend with Saturday being the most promising. There a lot of free activities happening around the Twin Cities- here’s a link to various activities from City Pages. Also the Basilica Block Party is happening tonight and tomorrow. All info, including available tickets can be found here if that strikes your fancy. 

We’ve got crews working on prep work- scraping and priming areas onthe last 5 buildings (#18-22). The crews are also completing touch ups -indicated by blue tape on Buildings #1-17.

Thursday, July 6th: Good afternoon residents of Wedgewood! It’s a hot one today – stay hydrated and out of the heat if you can!

The crew is prepping and painting on the last several buildings. We’re hoping with this string of good weather to finish up either on Saturday or Monday. The carpentry crew is about 80% complete with their designated work. We appreciate your patience as we make our way to your deck. We’re waiting on some project specific materials and then they should resume tomorrow or Friday when we get the materials. 

Also, please note the blue tape on your buildings. Our site supervisor has walked through several buildings and marked areas that need touch ups, repaint, etc with blue tape. So if you see some blue tape, please leave it. Thanks! 

The Blue Tape Guy has been spotted!

Wednesday, July 5th: Hello residents of Wedgewood! We hope you all had a great weekend and a happy 4th of July! 

The crews are back onsite and resuming their prep and painting. They’ve started on buildings 19-22 as well. 

Friday, June 30th: Hello Wedgewood! TGIF! We are looking forward to the weekend and the upcoming holiday. It looks like we’re going to miss the alleged rain, which is great that the crews can continue prepping, painting, and completing carpentry on the buildings. While we were onsite yesterday we shot a few videos, one of which we posted yesterday highlighting progress made and what’s to come for the next few days. We also shot a carpentry video since we are replacing several pieces of rotted wood on multiple decks and other various carpentry throughout. Anibal and Dio are our resident carpenters and they are fantastic!

Tuesday, June 27th: Good afternoon! This summer, the movie ‘A League of Their Own’ celebrates it’s 25th Anniversary. The fan-favorite and box office hit depicted an All American Girls Professional Baseball League and in which Tom Hanks made the phrase, “There’s no crying in baseball” famous. Take a walk down memory lane and check out the 1992 premiere.

We are cruising at Wedgewood and painting on Buildings 9-13. They’ll begin 14 tomorrow as will pressure washing of the remaining buildings (19-22).

Thursday, June 22nd: Good morning residents of Wedgewood! The crew has started pressure washing the 10 next designated buildings and we have Jesse, our site supervisor on radar watch to check for any incoming rain. They’re hoping the rain will pass around you and the crew can continue pressure washing and then prep and paint this afternoon. We’ll keep you apprised of any weather updates as we get them. Thanks! 

Update- It turns out Jesse is no Dave Dahl… It’s raining @ Wedgewood. They’ll be calling it a day with the surfaces being too wet to paint.

It’s a bird – It’s a plane – It’s our professional pressure washer…before the rain hit.

Wednesday, June 21st: Good morning Wedgewood! We can’t believe we didn’t post about ‘New Foods Reveal Day @ the State Fair’ yesterday. The coveted and drool-worthly list was released yesterday and you know what that means? It’s time to start training for the heavy lifting and heavy eating that will consume our being from August 24th – September 4th. See for yourself...and just a warning, I wouldn’t look on an empty stomach!

Per our schedule, we’ll be starting buildings #5-8. With the rain delay yesterday and not being able to paint in full force, we’ll begin prepping on 6 &7 and potentially start 8 in the afternoon. We’ll begin prep on 5 tomorrow. Lastly, as a reminder for the pressure washing tomorrow (#9-18) please set up your hose so we can utilize your water to pressure wash your building. Thanks!

Tuesday, June 20th: Rain over at the Roell Painting Office in Eden Prairie as well… it should clear up this morning and we may have crew members onsite this afternoon depending on how quickly things can dry out to complete some prep steps- caulking and scraping. 

As a head’s up- we will have the last 4 buildings pressure washed next Wednesday, 6/28. Also, on Thursday & Friday of this week buildings #9 – #18 will be pressure washed. We’ll follow the same protocol to use the coupler provided to attach to the end of your garden hose- make sure it’s fitting is tight and turned to OFF position, run the hose out through the garage, close the garage, and turn the water on. This will ensure the crew uses your water only when they are washing you unit. Please watch the video above for further explanation. Thanks!


Monday, June 19th: We’re back to the grind with another work week started. We hope you all had a great weekend and Father’s Day! 

Aaaand they’re off! The crews have started prepping and painting the first 4 buildings in your association. They’ll continue through the week and likely start the prep and painting of building 5-8 on Wednesday.

Thursday, June 15th: Good morning residents of Wedgewood! Today is the day, we are starting your project with pressure washing. Please see below for instructions to attach the valve and set up your hose so we can gain water access to wash your building. There is also a video posted above : )

These instructions will apply to the first 8 buildings for the pressure washing today and tomorrow.

Aaand they’re off!

When that morning light hits just right.

Update: For the pressure washing beginning tomorrow with Buildings 1-8, here are instructions to use the coupler we’ve provided. On the day your buildings is set to be pressure washed, attach the coupler to the end of your garden hose and ensure it is in the OFF position. Run your hose from the spigot through your garage and outside of the garage door. Once the hose is outside, close your garage door on top of the hose and lastly turn on the water. Please make sure the fitting is tight in your garage as the water will be on throughout the day- we want to ensure there are no leaks. The crew will use your water for that day only and turn off the valve when they are finished. 

Once complete, please return your hose to your garage and place the valve back where you found it so we can recycle them for other homes in your neighborhood. Thanks for your participation and cooperation!

Wednesday, June 14th: Good afternoon! The crew is set to start tomorrow with pressure washing the first 8 buildings- see the site map above for designation. We’ve also updated the Finishing Schedule above to account for the next group of buildings to be pressure washed on Thursday 6/22-Friday 6/23. We’ve added Buildings 17&18 to this group.

Thanks so much and we’re looking forward to getting started tomorrow!

Tuesday, June 13th: Hello Wedgewood! We hope you’re having a good week thus far and are staying cool in this heat! 

We are a go for starting your project on Thursday with pressure washing of the first 8 Buildings and this will continue on Friday to finish the first 8 Buildings. We’ll be posting notices on the next 8 Buildings to alert homeowners of pressure washing that will begin next week on Thursday, 6/22 and continue on Friday, 6/23. The same procedure is followed and we kindly ask you to remove all personal belongings from the outside of your home/deck and turn on your exterior water spigots. 

Thanks so much for your cooperation and we’ll see you onsite on Thursday!

We will be onsite Thursday, 6/15 and Friday, 6/16 to wash the exteriors of Buildings 1-8. Please see our site map above that designates building numbers. We’ll be starting at the north end of the association. If you haven’t done so already, please turn on your exterior water spigot and remove all personal belongings from the outside of your home/deck.

We are projecting that this will begin on Monday, June 19th.
