We often feature our residential painting projects on social media and in our blog. While this is a huge part of who are and the work we do, we’re excited to let you in on another side of MB Jessee.

Specifically, our commercial side.

In addition to painting homes throughout the Bay Area, we also apply our expertise to a wide variety of local businesses, HOAs, apartment buildings, and more. As just one example, be sure to check out the interior painting we completed in this Michelin-starred restaurant (pretty tasty, in every way).

Today, let’s take a quick tour of a large apartment building we just wrapped up. The photos tell the story best, but we have a few details below for you as well.

Being a Lead-Safe Certified Painter Came In Handy!

When we first arrived we discovered what had the potential to be a beautiful old building. The lines and detailed elements point back to an older age of craftsmanship that we love seeing (and restoring!) whenever we have the opportunity.

Unfortunately, age is a two-edged sword. Time had left its mark, leaving scarred and decayed surfaces behind. We also really had no record of when it was last painted; it was just undeniably a long, long time ago.

Beyond needing repair and TLC, we also knew that the presence of lead paint posed a potential threat. Our team is lead-safe certified by the EPA, however, meaning that we have the knowledge and experience necessary to safely manage and control this hazard. Our team did a wonderful job following the correct procedures to effectively navigate, contain, and seal the outdated surface.

Repairing the Wood Rot Before Exterior Painting

Every enduring painting project begins with thorough surface preparation and repair. If you skimp on this part, you’re building on a faulty foundation that will compromise the lifespan and integrity of your work.

With the help of professional carpentry services, we repaired and replaced those sections of exterior wood that had been consumed by rot. This made having a healthy, restored surface possible.

How About the Actual Painting Process?

We used four different colors, creating a totally refreshed style. The light trim color also helps that beautiful, old-school detail work that we mentioned to pop out even more. Be sure to click through the slideshow above to see what this looks like in living color!

Did you know...

We can offer digital renderings of a project! In this case, we were able to give our client a preview of what different colors, hues, and placements would look like through digital renderings of actual photos.

Can We Help with Your Residential or Commercial Painting Project?

The MB Jessee team is here to help however we can. And, as you may have gathered, we have a vested interest in doing all of our work correctly. Achieving beautiful, lasting results is our goal every time we pick up a brush, roller, or sprayer.

“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.”

“Everyone I dealt with was nice, helpful, and very professional. The price was reasonable! (I didn't feel like I was getting the "San Francisco price." The attention to detail and work quality was excellent. They did what they said they would do in the exact timeframe they said they would do. Highly recommend!”

— Tim Tyson

“Hello Matt,Just another notice of thanks to your wonderful crew, Rigoberto, Javier and John. They did fantastic work, with Rigo providing meticulous and conscientious attention to the details and excellent woodwork finishing, as evidenced by the beautiful fireplace. Javier did a fantastic job in the bathroom especially, it looks "brand new," and John always does quality work, both with the interior and exterior. I can tell they care about what they do. Rigo's "punch out" was very thorough, too. I will call again when I need some more work and will definitely recommend your company and fine crew. I also felt as a homeowner, I could leave my house in their good hands during the day and that took a lot of worry from me, they were honest, prompt and reliable. They were also very kind, respectful and clean in their work, very professional. Thank you.”

— Beth Marx & Melissa Kirsch

“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

“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”

“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.”

“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.”
