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.

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!”

“I want to express my thanks for a job well done. The rooms look great and there is no problem with any marks on the all the trim, floor, carpet, etc. The paint job is lovely. I also want to express my thanks for the level of professionalism the foreman showed in running the job. He was very attentive to any changes I needed to make, was extremely careful in getting the faux paint color and effect correct. Thanks so much for a job well done.”

— Suzan D’Arcy

“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

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

“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

“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.”
