Exterior Painting and Wood Repair in Oakland

Making surfaces beautiful and healthy again...


If this gorgeous house looks familiar, it may be because you saw it on our social media outlets. We love showcasing our work in general, but the work we completed here had a couple of unique aspects in particular that make it stand out.

Surface Preparation and Extensive Wood Repair

We believe in creating beautiful, lasting results. One essential step in making this goal a reality is to never minimize surface preparation, but rather ensure that what is under the paint is just as solid and healthy as the paint itself. Otherwise you’re building on a weak foundation.

In this particular case, we had extensive wood rot to deal with.

For the smaller, more delicate areas within the molding around the trim, we used epoxy to repair the space and eliminate the rot issue, while the large sections were replaced with new wood. This was a widespread problem, but our craftsmen did a fantastic job with seamlessly blending the repairs.

The windows were comprised of smaller glass squares which needed to be handled very carefully. We applied a liquid mask over the glass, allowing us to paint the wooden framework and keep the process neat and clean. For a closer look at what using liquid mask looks like, be sure to click over to this project we completed in Piedmont.


At the end of the day, we couldn’t be more pleased by how this home turned out. It’s an added bonus to be able to give our clients the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the rot is now a non-issue.

“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.”

“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

“High quality work from a pleasant and qualified staff. Thank you!”

— Paul Markovich

“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!”

“I had my wooden kitchen cabinets painted white. Anabal and Danielle were doing the job. I have nothing but praise for them. They came on time, cleaned up every day, were respective, friendly and helpful. If the rest of Jessee's crew are as great as Anabal and Danielle, this company will go far.”

“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

“The people at M.B. Jessee are great – from the painters to the office staff to Matt. Talk about leadership from the top.”
