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 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.”

— Richard

“Hello Matt,Just another notice of thanks to your wonderful crew, Rigoberto, Javier and John. They did fantastic work, with Rigo providing meticulous and conscientious attention to the details and excellent woodwork finishing, as evidenced by the beautiful fireplace. Javier did a fantastic job in the bathroom especially, it looks "brand new," and John always does quality work, both with the interior and exterior. I can tell they care about what they do. Rigo's "punch out" was very thorough, too. I will call again when I need some more work and will definitely recommend your company and fine crew. I also felt as a homeowner, I could leave my house in their good hands during the day and that took a lot of worry from me, they were honest, prompt and reliable. They were also very kind, respectful and clean in their work, very professional. Thank you.”

— Beth Marx & Melissa Kirsch

“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

“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”

— Anja

“Charles finished yesterday and did a fantastic job. We really enjoyed meeting Charles and having him in our home. He is a great guy in addition to his attention to detail in his work, the protection of our floors, walls and furnishings, and his overall interaction with us both. I would be pleased to recommend him to any of my clients.”

— Ken Morrison

“Everyone I dealt with was nice, helpful, and very professional. The price was reasonable! (I didn't feel like I was getting the "San Francisco price." The attention to detail and work quality was excellent. They did what they said they would do in the exact timeframe they said they would do. Highly recommend!”

— Tim Tyson

“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

“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.”

“Many thanks to Rigoberto and Damon and the extraordinary team who transformed my castle in the skies.They are magicians. I appreciate their work very much.”

“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 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!”

— Jo
