A Good House Painter Is a Safe House Painter, and Has Certification to Prove It!

A Good House Painter Is a Safe House Painter, and Has Certification to Prove It!

What do you think of when you imagine a good house painting company? Hopefully, you think of beautiful painting results! Maybe you think of friendly customer service, or reliable, clean-cut painters. At MB Jessee, we believe that safety is one of the qualities that must define every good house painting company. (Of course, we also strive to accomplish those other things with excellence!).

One of the ways that we have worked to create a culture of safety in all our work is by pursuing and earning the Summit Safety Certification. This process doesn’t just ensure that we have good theoretical policies in place; it requires that we carry those processes into practice, and we document it all thoroughly.

Characteristics of a Safe House Painter

One of the indispensable aspects of safety for house painters is thorough training. Our safety certification requires that we provide thorough safety orientation for all newly-hired employees. Additionally, we keep an updated safety manual with an employee signoff sheet, and we have a year-long safety training syllabus developed.

For all of our painters, we are strict about keeping safety data sheets in appropriate locations, and we perform safety audits at least twice a month. For each type of painting work we perform, we specify what kinds of personal protective equipment is needed, and we insist that all employees, even management, wears the appropriate gear.

While our house painting is typically done with low-VOC or zero-VOC water-based paints (so there are no hazardous material concerns there), we provide all employees with instruction on how to deal with lead-based paint in a safe and legal manner. In fact, we are also Lead-Safe Certified by the EPA!

Finally, we also have clear procedures in place for how to react to workplace injuries, including emergency response, investigation of the circumstances, and reporting/tracking all safety incidents.

Thorough Protection for Our Residential Painting Clients

Even for the most diligent and safe individuals, unforeseen accidents can happen. However, if they do occur, we want you to know that we are fully insured, so that you have full protection. We also maintain all relevant licensing and Worker’s Compensation.

Excellence and Professionalism in House Painting

When you hire MB Jessee for your residential painting, you can be assured of the utmost care for your home and your household. We insist on professionalism, respect, quality, attention to detail, and of course, safety, from all our employees.

Customer Reviews

“The kitchen looks NEW! You guys are amazing.”

“We just wanted to let you know how pleased we are with the work of MB Jessee Painting and your employees. Everything turned out beautiful. Our foreman was great! He was punctual, professional, neat and very accommodating ... and went the extra mile. We will definitely recommend you to our friends and family.”

— Michelle & Rivers Gee

“I cannot imagine finer painters--and I have worked with many. They work exceptionally hard. It is a joy to see their workmanship!”

— Alicia R.

“The entire MB Jessee team is courteous, efficient and professional. From scheduling and estimating to the crew managers and crew, they all did an excellent job on a small (but complicated) two room project in my house. I'm already thinking about getting them scheduled for the next project in the spring.”

— Cari Cheney

“Julie, by the way, I have never been so impressed with the service of a painting job before! It was like magical elves came and painted our walls without us having to do a thing! It looks amazing and just wanted to let you know how happy we are. Thanks”

“Awesome work by highly experienced, professional painters. They were: Conscious about the amount of time it would take. Ours had a lot of pre-work and took 3 weeks. Accommodating when we added a few last-minute changes Understanding when a heatwave hit and we remove some of the plastic sheeting over windows, which they had to put back up the next day. Accessible, especially the on-site crew (Hi Jose & Victor!) -- always answering questions and checking in. The end result is a perfect paint job that makes our 94-year-old house look brand new. I would definitely hire MBJ again”

“Richard and crew have been great, for sure. As much as I look forward to having the job done and my house back in order, I really enjoyed having them around. You should feel really good about how they represent your company.”

— Jessica Dodson

“In September, MBJessee finished painting two sides of our 3-story condominium building (six owners). We were impressed by the professionalism of the company and every one of its workers, Matt Jessee couldn't have been more helpful in planning the project. His painters were well-trained, easy to communicate with and eager to please. In addition to painting the stucco, they made extensive repairs on windows and frames, which will save us considerable money in the future. They finished earlier than anticipated, with as many as five men working on the job, and the scaffolding came down the next day. All of us were delighted with the results. Now my husband and I are looking forward to having MB Jessee paint our own apartment later this month. Matt and Gustavo (who will be our crew leader again) have explained how they will work to make the painting proceed smoothly while we're living here, and they have been endlessly patient with our protracted decision-making process. If you look at their website, you'll learn that MB Jessee is an exemplary company that takes good care of its workers as well as its customers, and contributes public service projects to the community. All in all, we can't recommend MB Jessee highly enough.”

“Thank you for the support you have given the Women's Cancer Resource Center over the past year!”

— Margo - Director Women's Cancer Resource Center

“Just had MB Jessee paint the interior of our house and they did a wonderful job. They tackled some crazy wallpaper as well as painted some very high ceilings and walls. The whole process was quick and they did a great job! We are very pleased. I was also very impressed by the crew. They were very personable, kind and actually took pride in the work they were doing. In one of our conversations with the lead Ricardo, he actually told me he was very proud of how the rooms had turned out. I agree sir! It turned out great and it's not often you hear someone thinking of your home like they would theirs, and putting that level of work and quality into it. That made a huge difference in how I viewed this company. Ricardo, you were fantastic and thank you for the great job, we will be using you again.”

From the first phone call to the final clean up, every person is courteous, professional, and hard working. The owner, Matt, is a charitable leader who has instilled his team with integrity and honesty providing the customer with a first class experience at a fair price with a paint job that is guaranteed to last. I highly recommend MB Jessee. Thank you Matt and your STAR crew-Daniel, Rigoberto, Vicente, Edy, Pedro, and Mario, for a job well executed! Cynthia Brian, ASID, Starstyle® Productions, llc”
