Most of the significant dust-producing work will be done between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, weather permitting. A good deal of the work will require the use of noisy impact devices and power tools, for which we apologize in advance. Please be reminded that it is best to keep your shades drawn and windows closed if the contractor is working anywhere near your apartment. If in doubt, please remember to keep your shades drawn to insure your privacy.
