Early this summer, we completed Year Two of a four-year project to repaint 33 buildings at Four Lakes Village located in Lisle, IL.
When we learned of this project, the buildings had not been painted in over 10 years, but to paint all 33 buildings in one year was simply not financially feasible for the association, which is why we suggested phasing this project over four years.
The board had no reliable records of what products were used before; however, our process always begins with inspecting the buildings. This allows us to provide each client with a detailed proposal that includes preparation, products and specific details regarding the surfaces to be painted.
During our inspection, we noticed that the color of the buildings was not uniform, having been painted in slightly different shades over the years. We custom-matched the color and now all buildings will be painted the same. Every year, we will inspect the property to determine which buildings to paint next based on their condition.
This project is a good example of how we work with our customers to develop a feasible exterior painting plan that meets their budgetary needs.
