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

“In all the years I've worked with MB Jessee, I'm always so impressed by your crews. They are so respectful of everything--you never even know they're there! Except that the paint looks amazing when they're gone. We've had one showing of our home and already have an offer. I'm sure it is because the paint looks so beautiful.”

“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

“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

“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

“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

“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

“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.”

— Mike C.

“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

“High quality work from a pleasant and qualified staff. Thank you!”

— Paul Markovich

“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

“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!”
