Exterior Painting in Piedmont: Increasing Curb Appeal in a Big Way!

 Exterior Painting in Piedmont: Increasing Curb Appeal in a Big Way!

The exterior painting process offers so many benefits, from protecting and preserving your surfaces to adding that all-important style. After all, you take pride in your investment and it should show!

House painting projects also offer a huge return on investment. If you’re planning on selling your Bay Area home anytime soon, painting can take your property (and property value) to the next level in a fast, cost-effective way.

As an example, let’s take a closer look at this beautiful, craftsman-style Piedmont home. The owner invited us to paint the entire property, inside and out, in anticipation of the home going on the market. Every detail shines, and this kind of care instills priceless confidence in prospective buyers. They know the home has been loved and cared for!

Plus, it looks incredible.

Stylish Exterior Paint Colors for Resale

First, a couple of our favorite pics, and then we’ll share key takeaways.

Color Tips:

We recommend choosing a palette you love. That’s the bottom line. But if you’re selling your home, you also need to consider what the next owners will be looking for. It can be helpful to look around the neighborhood and take note of what colors others have used, and what you like (and don’t!). After all, having a house stand out in a good way is positive, but you also want your home to flow with surrounding properties.

A little light research will also show which colors are trending right now. We recommend the balance of trendy, but also on the slightly conservative side. A bold choice will be appealing to a smaller demographic, and an ultra-trendy color choice has a shorter shelf-life.

In this case, we know that dark palettes are in style, but also won’t lose popularity anytime soon. Deep blues are in the same category! Paired with the white trim and natural door, you’ve got a look that is simultaneously timeless and eye-catching.

Also, never be afraid to ask your local painting company for help. Our team at MB Jessee Painting, for example, can connect you with professional color consulting services. Fresh ideas and perspectives can be immensely helpful.

Customer Reviews

“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 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.”

“I can't say enough about how courteous and professional my foreman was. He was on time every morning and arrived cheerful and ready to go. He is highly organized and very thoughtful. He was extremely careful and respectful when moving my belongings - a mature professional.”

— Nora Robinson

“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

“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

“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

“The finish on my kitchen cabinets had failed, becoming tacky and grimy around the handles. M B Jessee gave me a reasonable quote, far below some others, and did an outstanding job, striping the original varnish and refinishing with a new lacquer finish. The cabinets look like new. Work was done 1 day faster than estimated. The crew was extremely hard-working, considerate, and neat. Highly recommend M B Jessee.”

— Thama B.

“I highly recommend MB Jesse Painting to anyone looking for a professional team that does an impressive job. They are on time, efficient and clean up well each and every day they are on site. They pay attention to detail and listen to the needs of their clients. In addition, they give back to the community. A Five Star team all the way around.”

— Erin Troy

“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!”

“Just had MB Jessee paint the interior of our house and they did a wonderful job. They tackled some crazy wallpaper as well as painted some very high ceilings and walls. The whole process was quick and they did a great job! We are very pleased. I was also very impressed by the crew. They were very personable, kind and actually took pride in the work they were doing. In one of our conversations with the lead Ricardo, he actually told me he was very proud of how the rooms had turned out. I agree sir! It turned out great and it's not often you hear someone thinking of your home like they would theirs, and putting that level of work and quality into it. That made a huge difference in how I viewed this company. Ricardo, you were fantastic and thank you for the great job, we will be using you again.”

“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

“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.”
