On a referral from the property manager, CertaPro Painters of the North Shore was contacted in regards to a condominium complex in the Willowbrook neighborhood of Southwest Chicagoland. Built in 1987, the complex required a complete overhaul of the shared common area hallways, and the elevator vestibule. In addition, the removal of old, earthen tone baseboards, installation of new baseboards, crown molding, and wallpaper, as well as the staining and varnishing of 210-units of doors, as well as the painting of all walls and ceilings were a must.
Production of this task began in June, 2020, with a duration of 8 weeks. With a pretty lengthy duration of work, constant communication between the sales team and the Job Site Supervisor were key to updates and progress reports. In addition, closely working with the building’s Board of Directors, design committee, and property management team ensured the project was completed on time, under budget, and with minimal disruption to the tenants. This was also during the height of the Covid-19 Pandemic, which introduced another set of challenges. However, the team at CertaPro Painters of the North Shore never wavered, creating and implementing new procedures to follow social distancing guidelines, an additional level of cleanliness, disinfectant techniques, and daily wellness checks.
The walls in the building’s elevator vestibules were covered by wood veneer panels, an outdated look the building desperately wanted removed. Because the building’s budget did not permit the demolition, removal, and preparation of the existing panels,we provided them a solution of mudding and wallpapering the existing panels. This was a great solution because it masked the areas in question and kept the building under their desired budget number. This process involved using special glues and other wallpaper adhesives that were compatible with the existing veneer panels.
Upon completion, the building’s Board of Trustees were thrilled, with the President even leaving a glowing review. Take a look at the photos to see why the team at CertaPro Painters of the North Shore is the right fit for the job.
“During the summer of 2020 CertaPro Painters of the North Shore installed baseboards, crown molding wallcovering and painted the interior common areas of our 5 story, 60-unit Condo building located in a near southwest suburb of Chicago. They also sanded and applied sealer to 210 varnished doors.
Many of the 89 resident owners in the building commented on how the teams of extremely courteous & professional workers that came to our building performed in a very positive manner. The quality of work is exceptional in all areas. The painting team had a Working Supervisor on site daily with additional regular visits from another Supervisor.
All in all, the workers, Supervisor & Salesperson could not do enough to make sure the work was done properly and without delay. Materials for the work performed were always available with plenty of time prior to being applied.
If you are considering hiring a company to do this type of work in your Home, Business or Condo Association, I would highly suggest you speak to CertaPro of the North Shore.”
