 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

“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

“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.”

“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

“Julie,Just to let you know I am very appreciative of your crew catching the plumbing/mold problem. It was very astute of them. I wanted to let you know that again your crew has done excellent work here, please pass this along to Mr. Jessee. There are some bumps in the road here, but the painting and your crew has not been one of them. Their work is the only thing going right currently, and this crew is very nice and respectful. It is much appreciated. Thank you again.”

— Beth

“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

“It was a great experience working with MB Jessee. The crew was careful and thorough as they painted the house, sealed stucco cracks, repaired dry-rotted wood, stained the deck, etc. Robert, Gersson, Jose, and all of the people involved in the process from the estimate to the job completion were friendly and professional.”

“Thank you for the support you have given the Women's Cancer Resource Center over the past year!”

“I love the article in the paper on your company. Thank you for supporting our community by painting at the Claremont Middle School. Thanks!”

— Carla Banks

“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

“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 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

“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!”
