We recently had the opportunity to give back in a very unique way, helping to preserve and protect incredible local artwork.

Tucked away in American Canyon, right on the outskirts of Napa Valley, you’ll find an unlikely sight. In stark contrast to the surrounding fields stands the ruins of a cement plant that was in use well over a century ago.

Take a closer look, and you’ll see something special…

These fractured walls and long-abandoned structures have become a canvas for artists from around the world. Their artwork is about to have a bigger audience than ever thanks to a community development project that will make The Ruins part of a long-awaited Town Center in American Canyon. It will be a central hub, featuring a celebration of the arts, local wine, music, outdoor activities, food, and much more.

Giving back is important to our team at MB Jessee Painting, Inc., especially when it involves supporting and improving our communities. It also was a pleasure to partner once again with Keith KDUB Williams, Artist/Youth Art Activist & Educator.

We donated our time, and Sherwin Williams was kind enough to donate the necessary product from TSW (This Stuff Works, Inc.). We’d like to offer a special thanks to Aaron at Sherwin Williams for his help with coordinating the donation and details.

How Do Anti-Graffiti Coatings Work?

TSW is our go-to choice for vandalism protection, typically used on schools, churches, businesses, and other sites of unwanted graffiti.

We applied several thin coats by spray and roller, creating a transparent, durable barrier. If any paint is applied over it, it can be easily removed without damaging the surface or artwork underneath.

Customer Reviews

“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

“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.”

“Our paint crew did a great job and the foreman, Gersson was exceptionally great to work with. He was always available to answer questions, good at problem-solving, very patient, kind, and highly professional with great customer service. We definitely recommend this company, and Gersson and his crew.”

“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!”

— Heather Jordan

“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.”

“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.”

“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

“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”

I am so pleased with all their fine work. Richard is absolutely amazing and a total delight to work with. He was also extremely helpful during the paint color process. The interior work in my home far exceeded my expectations. A big thank you to you and the crew for an outstanding job. Thank you, thank you for a terrific job!”
