Get Ready, Because Winter Is On The Way!

Brrr! There is a definite bite in the air these last few mornings. In our front yard we have a hideous, er… “charming” yard gnome that my son adores. Affixed to his round belly is a temperature gauge. This morning it tells me it is a balmy fifty degrees out. Like I said, brrr! I love fall though. Fall is my favorite season. Across the San Francisco Bay Area, the days are mostly sunny and we’re done with the scorching, sweat of the summer but not quite into the bitter freeze and drizzle of winter; it is perfect! Fall means cozy sweaters and boots, a cashmere throw over the sofaback, and a roast chicken filling the house with the smell of rosemary and garlic. And the colors autumn brings us! True, this isn’t the storied leaf transformation of fall days on the East Coast. But on our tree-lined streets from Piedmont to San Francisco to Lafayette to Atherton, one can see the beautiful red, gold and orange leaves falling from above. Lovely!

But these divine days of fall are all too short. As it starts to get nippier, we know that winter is just around the corner and with it will be the chilly—and seemingly endless!—rain in the hills of the East Bay on the on San Francisco streets. That’s why now in early fall it is the perfect time to have an MB Jessee professional come out to your home to do a visual inspection of your exterior. Got some questions you’d like to ask your local paint expert? Does your deck need to be resealed now or can it wait til spring? Should you do the trim before the rains set it? There is still time to have one of our estimators come out and help you with these exterior issues and get your project on our fall schedule.

Gosh, I haven’t even mentioned the best part of autumn—the holidays! Halloween is right around the corner and Thanksgiving is at its heels. Are you having the whole family over this year? Take a long look at your formal dining room. Are there areas that could use some sprucing up? Perhaps you’ve noticed more than a few nicks in your trim? Or maybe you’ve been itching to change up the feel of your home completely with new colors in the living and dining rooms and the kitchen. These are excellent projects to undertake as the weather turns colder. A visit from MB Jessee Painting can help transform your home into a showplace for your friends and family this holiday season!

Give MB Jessee a call today and we’ll have one of our consultants visit to discuss your project!

Customer Reviews

“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.”

“Today I received a beautiful bouquet from your company. It was totally unexpected and very much appreciated--a lovely surprise. Also today, your crew finished my job. I am so pleased with all their fine work. Richard is absolutely amazing and a total delight to work with. He was also extremely helpful during the paint color process. The interior work in my home far exceeded my expectations. A big thank you to you and the crew for an outstanding job. Thank you, thank you for a terrific job!”

“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.”

“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.”

“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.”

“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.”
