Dear Cottage Works & Foam Works Customers,

This morning, Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer announced a new “Stay Home, Stay Safe” executive order for the State of Michigan.  As part of the effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19, we will have to temporarily suspend our operations for three weeks, as directed.  This announcement will affect our ability to have your lakefront equipment (docks, boat lifts, boats) at your cottages/homes ready for the season as early as you would typically expect.  Also, a number of you are patiently awaiting deck and seawall construction projects.  These too will have to wait until we can resume operations and get caught up on the seasonal lakefront equipment installation work.  

The only portion of our service offering that we can currently continue is our Spring Energizing (Water Turn-on) Service.  FYI – see the Essential Work List from the CISA at the link below.

If you are using our crew for your Spring Energizing (Water Turn-on) Service, we would prefer that you DO NOT enter your cottage/home prior to our Technician’s visit.  We also require that if you are home, you follow the social distancing guidelines while our Technician energizes your home.  In fact, we would prefer that you stay out of your house while we perform our work.  Conversely, our Technicians will be wearing gloves and a face mask while inside your premises.  If your cottage/home requires the local municipalities of Pere Marquette Township, Village of Pentwater or the City of Ludington to turn on your water meter prior to energizing, these organizations have discontinued their services until they are cleared by the Governor, hopefully on April 13 and we will be unable to energize your water system. 

Our retail shop will not reopen until mid-April, pending updates from the Governor.  On behalf of all of us at Cottage Works and Foam Works, we hope you and your family stay healthy and safe during this uncertain time.  We look forward to continuing to meet your lakeside living needs as soon as we are able and well into the future.
