Exterior Painting in Berkeley, CA - What a Transformation!

Exterior Painting in Berkeley, CA - What a Transformation!

What makes a paint job really exceptional? What’s the key to exterior paint longevity, allowing your surfaces to stand up for years and years versus flaking on the job after a year or two? Why does high-end painting cost more, and is it worth it?

These are all important questions to ask, and essential for many homeowners to wrestle through as they get into the house painting process.

The answer can be summed up neatly: attention to detail.

  • Surface preparation
  • Pairing the right products with the surface
  • Really tuning in and hearing your needs, goals, and concerns
  • Quality of application
  • Care of your home and the environment
  • A team of craftsmen that are dedicated and invested in their work

That’s where the real value lies.

Now, what does this actually look like? We’ll show you! Join us for a quick tour of this exterior painting project.

House Painting in Berkeley, CA - A Beautiful Finish for a Beautiful Home

Let's start with that essential prep we mentioned.

These initial steps included:

  • Thoroughly masking and containing our work area
  • Scraping and sanding, creating a receptive surface that guarantees secure primer and paint adhesion
  • Priming the surface
  • Patching final details on the surface that required it
  • Spot priming repairs
  • Final topcoats

We painted the shutters as well, creating a sharper contrast and stylish touch with the darker blue. This involved scraping, sanding, priming, new caulk, and then applying a sprayed finish. What do you think?

“MB Jessee painters are stellar! As a designer I've worked with numerous companies over the years, and MB Jessee is a top-notch firm. From the first phone call to the final clean up, every person is courteous, professional, and hard working. The owner, Matt, is a charitable leader who has instilled his team with integrity and honesty providing the customer with a first class experience at a fair price with a paint job that is guaranteed to last. I highly recommend MB Jessee. Thank you Matt and your STAR crew-Daniel, Rigoberto, Vicente, Edy, Pedro, and Mario, for a job well executed! Cynthia Brian, ASID, Starstyle® Productions, llc”

“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.”

“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.”

— Nora Robinson

“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

“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

“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!”
