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 just wanted to send you an email to say that John did such a great job over here today. He is truly a hard worker. He has the perfect balance of friendliness, honesty, and professionalism. I trust him. He takes the time to do the job to the best of his ability and that is what sets him (and your company) apart from the competition. He didn't make me feel rushed. He really made me feel like our job was the most important thing in the world. Thanks again!”

“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.”

“I want to express my thanks for a job well done. The rooms look great and there is no problem with any marks on the all the trim, floor, carpet, etc. The paint job is lovely. I also want to express my thanks for the level of professionalism the foreman showed in running the job. He was very attentive to any changes I needed to make, was extremely careful in getting the faux paint color and effect correct. Thanks so much for a job well done.”

“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

“The finish on my kitchen cabinets had failed, becoming tacky and grimy around the handles. M B Jessee gave me a reasonable quote, far below some others, and did an outstanding job, striping the original varnish and refinishing with a new lacquer finish. The cabinets look like new. Work was done 1 day faster than estimated. The crew was extremely hard-working, considerate, and neat. Highly recommend M B Jessee.”

“I love the article in the paper on your company. Thank you for supporting our community by painting at the Claremont Middle School. Thanks!”

— Carla Banks

“In all the years I've worked with MB Jessee, I'm always so impressed by your crews. They are so respectful of everything--you never even know they're there! Except that the paint looks amazing when they're gone. We've had one showing of our home and already have an offer. I'm sure it is because the paint looks so beautiful.”

“I had my wooden kitchen cabinets painted white. Anabal and Danielle were doing the job. I have nothing but praise for them. They came on time, cleaned up every day, were respective, friendly and helpful. If the rest of Jessee's crew are as great as Anabal and Danielle, this company will go far.”

“Very easy to work with, they did an outstanding job with our project of re-painting our painting our kitchen cabinets. Given the scope of the job and that our kitchen is roughly half of our upstairs living area they did a fantastic job of minimizing the mess. Workmanship was top notch, would definitely recommend.”

— Vince Scola

“MB Jessee just finished our exterior and we couldn't be happier with our experience. The foreman (Pedro) and lead painter (Ricardo) were incredible to work with: they communicated scheduling clearly, Ricardo was a joy to be around every day, the showed up early every day, were incredibly tidy and did great paint work. The final walkthrough experience was incredible. Pedro pointed out items I missed demonstrating a clear desire to complete another quality project. I highly recommend them. As others have noted they definitely aren't the cheapest but you quickly realize that you're getting what you pay for. The 3-year guarantee is also a nice touch since there are likely touch-up items that will show up after the job is done.”

“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.”
