Just paint over it

A couple of weeks ago, we got a notice on our front door that they were going to paint the patio attached to our apartment.

The notice stated that they would do the painting between January 7 and January 11.  I took everything off of the patio and waited.

Workers came while I was at work sometime during the day on January 10 and power washed the patio.  I know this because there was dirty water splatter all over the front door, and a basketball sized chunk of the textured cement overlay had come off.  But, they didn't paint.

Days passed.... and then I came home from work on Wednesday of this week and it was finally painted.  It's a good thing I didn't pay attention to the dates on the original notice.  Those things are never really accurate, are they?

Ridgepointe maintenance took care of the missing chunk of overlay in the way I expected:  They painted over it.  Who needs to patch it, when paint hides anything.

The patio looks lovely.  Just don't look too closely.

Like I said, don't look too closely and it's lovely.
