Exterior House Staining in Sausalito, CA

 Exterior House Staining in Sausalito, CA

Whenever home improvement topics come up, painting gets a lot of air time, and for good reason! It’s a key player in improving and enhancing just about any surface, inside or out.

But how about stain?

It’s too easy to neglect natural finishes, probably because they wear a little more gracefully than painted surfaces in a lot of cases. Ignoring faded stain is easier than ignoring chipped, peeling, or worn paint.

If we could leave you with one takeaway, it’s this: don’t miss out on routine staining and maintenance.

To differing degrees (depending on opacity), stain and sealer is an absolutely essential barrier for your home’s wood, locking out UV damage, insects, moisture, and more. When your stain breaks down, the wood is exposed to all sorts of threats and inevitable decay.

Showing your stained surfaces a little love is essential!

Staining Wood Shingles On a Sausalito Home

Our team just started the process of refinishing the exterior shingles on this Sausalito home. For now, these are in-progress pictures, so please stay tuned to our blog and social media to see the final results!

Here’s a quick peek at the process:

  • Complete project containment: as you can see, we masked and protected the surrounding surfaces and landscaping.

  • Next, we pressure washed the surfaces with a wood brightener. This product (a neutralizer) not only cleans the surface, but also improves the stain absorption.

  • Finally, we’ll stain the shingles.

Just like painting, staining requires a strict adherence to preparation procedures. This guarantees the best, and longest-lasting, results.

Customer Reviews

“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 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.”

“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

“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!”
