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!
