Does Your Commercial Painting Contractor Offer Carpentry? (They Should!)

Does Your Commercial Painting Contractor Offer Carpentry? (They Should!)

Our society is built on the specialization of labor, which is a good thing in many ways. For example, barbers no longer do tooth extractions on the side… we have dentists for that! That being said, here at MB Jessee, we believe that a commercial painting company needs a dedicated carpentry division. Why is that a commercial painter should also do carpentry? We have several good reasons.

Commercial Painters Often Discover Carpentry Problems

Attention to detail is one of a commercial painter’s most important attributes. As we prepare an area for painting, we carefully clean and examine each surface. In many cases, this means we are the first ones to uncover areas where exterior wood has begun to fail:

  • Window trim
  • Handrails and bannisters
  • Doors and door trim
  • Decks and porches
  • Victorian columns
  • Stairs
  • Fascia
  • Siding

Because we have a dedicated carpentry team, we can make sure these issues are properly remediated before your commercial painting happens.

Carpentry Delays Can Cause Painting Delays

If there is any carpentry that needs to happen on a commercial painting project, whether it be exterior wood rot repair, interior molding installation, or other similar issues, this needs to happen before the painting. Having a commercial carpentry division under our same roof allows us to move quickly to take care of these matters. That way, the painting is not delayed by waiting for another carpenter.

The Whole Project Bears the MB Jessee Name

Many commercial painters rely on subcontractors to handle carpentry issues, but here at MB Jessee, we like to keep it all in-house. Quality assurance is one of the biggest reasons for this. When our carpenters do the carpentry and our painters do the painting, we can confidently stand behind our work with an industry-leading warranty.

On the other hand, if the carpentry is done badly, our painting will not last. Shoddy woodwork can’t be fixed by great painting, and the client is the one who suffers.

Customer Reviews

“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

“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.”

“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

“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

“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

“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 walk through 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.”

— Joshua Jansen

“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.
Oakland

“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

“Matt, Julie & Ricardo, I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank the three of you for the wonderful job you did in hosting the SFBA NARI Chapter Meeting on Wednesday evening. Everything was perfect from beginning to end. Members and guests alike walked away with a truly positive experience. The "painter for a day" and the cookies in the paint cans were an absolute brilliant touch and received rave reviews. What a wonderful way to do such positive marketing. Thanks again for a truly memorable experience for our members and guests. You are valued as a NARI member.”

— Judy Tufo, SFBA NARI Executive Director

“Many thanks to Rigoberto and Damon and the extraordinary team who transformed my castle in the skies.They are magicians. I appreciate their work very much.”

— Kathleen A

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