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?

Customer Reviews

“Our paint crew did a great job and the foreman, Gersson was exceptionally great to work with. He was always available to answer questions, good at problem-solving, very patient, kind, and highly professional with great customer service. We definitely recommend this company, and Gersson and his crew.”

“The kitchen looks NEW! You guys are amazing.”

“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

“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.”

“I cannot imagine finer painters--and I have worked with many. They work exceptionally hard. It is a joy to see their workmanship!”

“The painters at MB Jesse are top notch! Cesar's team was super friendly and helpful. They were very polite and accommodating. Their expertise in everything painting related was evident in their attention to detail and efficiency painting tricky spaces. The apartment looks brand new!”

— Adam Swisher

“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

“I just wanted to thank you all for doing such a phenomenal job on our recent house painting. We are very happy with the outcome and can't say enough good things about the crew. Everyone working on the project was outstanding and made it a great experience. Thanks to everyone.”

“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”

“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

“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

“Dear Matt,You must be so proud of your men! They were fantastic to have around. Polite, courteous and hardworking. I am so pleased with the outcome of our home--in fact, I couldn't be any more pleased than I am!”
