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

“I can't say enough about how courteous and professional my foreman was. He was on time every morning and arrived cheerful and ready to go. He is highly organized and very thoughtful. He was extremely careful and respectful when moving my belongings - a mature professional.”

— Nora Robinson

“I highly recommend MB Jesse Painting to anyone looking for a professional team that does an impressive job. They are on time, efficient and clean up well each and every day they are on site. They pay attention to detail and listen to the needs of their clients. In addition, they give back to the community. A Five Star team all the way around.”

— Erin Troy

“Julie,Just to let you know I am very appreciative of your crew catching the plumbing/mold problem. It was very astute of them. I wanted to let you know that again your crew has done excellent work here, please pass this along to Mr. Jessee. There are some bumps in the road here, but the painting and your crew has not been one of them. Their work is the only thing going right currently, and this crew is very nice and respectful. It is much appreciated. Thank you again.”

“The people at M.B. Jessee are great – from the painters to the office staff to Matt. Talk about leadership from the top.”

— Kevin Ames, Mark Becker Homes

“I loved working with M.B. Jessee from start to finish on a relatively small paint job that grew a bit. I felt in very good hands from the moment Matt Jessee came out to give me the estimate and talk about my job. He was very easy to talk to and he handled my changes very well. Then the actual work done by Rigoberto and Mario was impeccable. They were neat and meticulous and the paint job looks beautiful. I could not have asked for more and when I did, they accommodated me 100%. I will not hesitate to call M.B. Jessee again and to refer them to friends.”

— Nancy Kurkjian

“The completed 'Client Satisfaction Survey' we sent in only modestly reflects our total satisfaction with the work. As a retired small business owner, I compliment you on setting 'best practices' that are consistently followed. Everything described in your marketing materials was a reality! The crew is a super bowl team and our neighbors commented on how quiet they were. We are very happy to be a client of MB Jessee.”

“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.”

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

“M.B. Jessee painted the exterior of my Spanish house over 9 years ago, and they did such an incredible job that they are still getting referrals from me today. The paint is holding up perfectly -- there is absolutely no peeling chipping or any other deterioration. I still remember that my final walk-through list consisted of items written on one side of a 3x5 index card (and I'm REAL picky about my house!) However, when Matt and I did that walk-through over HALF the items were no longer an issue, as his team had noticed them first and they had already been resolved.”

— JoAnn Newcomb

“Matt, We are very happy with how all of the painting worked out. We were extremely impressed with the quality of the work in the bathroom. I liked working with Victor, he and Marvin were extremely conscientious about doing a great job, not just the minimum. I know the front door took a lot longer than you'd expected. But they did it PERFECTLY. We never thought it could turn out like that! Thanks again for the great work. We'll be calling you again in the future!”

— Craig

“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.”

“Just wanted to let you know that the crew was great to have around the house for the past two weeks. All three of them were professional, courteous, and attentive to my thoughts/concerns and were extremely knowledgeable. They paid great attention to the detail and it shows.”
