Vanguard Lofts – Chicago, IL

Project: Interior Hallways

Updating the interior of a building is always an exciting transformation. It’s amazing what a difference a new shade can do to a room, or in this case, hallways. Vanguard Lofts is a beautiful condominium building located in Chicago. The Property Management Company reached out to us by referral for their hallways to be painted. We offered a few options to them including some additional common area painting, including their elevator lobbies and stairwells. The surfaces were all sanded to ensure adhesion of the new coating. The residents are very happy with the end result!

Old Orchard – Mount Prospect

Project: Exterior Paint and Wood Replacement


Entering the Old Orchard Property gives you the feeling of entering a quaint little town in the middle of Mount Prospect. From the moment you enter the beautiful entry way blooming with flowers, to the Orchard named streets and courts, driving through the beautiful property is so inviting and comforting. There is no doubt this is one reason there are a number of long term residents that reside in this community.

Old Orchard is a rather large property – the scope of work we completed included wood replacement and exterior painting. Working with their property management company was wonderful and we hope all of the residents love the refreshed look of their beautiful community.

7061 Renaissance – Niles, IL

Project: Railings/Exterior Paint

7061 renaissanceRepairing rusty railings is a very labor extensive task. To do it correctly, and have the application last as long as possible, proper prepping must be done. After removing all of the rust, the railings were then scrubbed with a bleach and water solution. The railing surfaces were hand washed and then sanded once dry. Certain areas were caulked and spot primed prior to the paint application. When the job was completed, the railings looked brand new!

We had a very happy Board President, Management Company, and residents of 7061 Renaissance.

Methode Electronics – Harwood Heights, IL 

Project: Interior Flooring and Paint 

Methode Electronics is a leading developer of custom-engineered and application-specific products and solutions utilizing the latest technologies. They are also a repeat customer of AAA Painting Contractor’s. We were excited about the opportunity to update the interior of their Harwood Heights location.

To prep for the installation of their new flooring, we removed up to 300 previously repaired cement patches. We grinded the edges to a smooth taper and filled them with a repair mortor system. The additional flooring was diamond grinded for a smoother profile. We primed the entire floor with a clear penetrating epoxy primer. After thorough preparation, AAA installed a self-leveling epoxy floor system. The product we used is specifically formulated to protect concrete surfaces and provide excellent chemical, impact and abrasion resistance.

The second component to the job was interior painting. We removed all of the loose and peeling paint and primed the area with a rust inhibitive and corrosion resistant acrylic metal primer. We sprayed the ceiling panels, cross members, metal trusses, horizontal structural beams, conduit, abutting piping and galvanized ductwork with a waterbased eggshell finish dryfall paint. We also painted the free standing vertical structural columns with 2 coats of alkyd gloss paint. The columns that house fire extinguishers were painted with Safety Red Industrial Enamel alkyd gloss paint to coincide with safety regulations.Methode

Piers 2 – Woodridge, IL 

Project – Interior Hallways 


before-after stairs

We had the pleasure working with this customer to update the interior hallways of their buildings. They opted to change the existing brown trim to white which drastically brightened up the space.

After sanding all of the glossy surfaces to ensure adhesion of the new coating, the damaged drywall areas were patched, sanded and primed. We removed the existing door and window casing and base trim and replaced with primed window casing and base trim. We also added a new primed pine chair rail to the walls in the main hallways to add some depth and design to the area. The ceilings were given a fresh coat of paint, as well as the interior side of the main entry doors, and both sides of the interior security doors. The wrought iron railings were also coated.

We are confident the homeowners will love coming home to this updated space.

Client Testimonial

To whom it may concern.

AAA painting completely did our complex in 2006 and again in 2015. We are an Association of seven townhomes and they did all the staining of our Cedar, garage overhead doors, trim, and gutters. In 2015, they also did a lot of repair work, including replacing Cedar, trim, posts, and some other miscellaneous work.

As it was in 2006, and again in 2015, they did an outstanding job. The price was competitive, the quality of work was excellent, they were on time always, very professional, cleaned up each day they were there and very pleasant to work with. The staff that worked on our complex was very professional and very qualified.

I highly recommend AAA painting for your painting, staining and other needs.
