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

“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”

“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.”

“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

“It was a great experience working with MB Jessee. The crew was careful and thorough as they painted the house, sealed stucco cracks, repaired dry-rotted wood, stained the deck, etc. Robert, Gersson, Jose, and all of the people involved in the process from the estimate to the job completion were friendly and professional.”

— Mike C.
Livermore, CA

“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

“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.”

— Jeff M.

“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

“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.”

— Mark & Roberta Gross

“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 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.”

— Thama B.
San Francisco, CA

“My entire experience with MB Jesse was very professional. The crew were very friendly and super accommodating of my ridiculous schedule and geriatric pets in the house. The finished product, which was pretty much my entire house, far exceeds my expectations. Would definitely work with them again!”
