HGTV and MB Jessee Painting:  A Winning Combination!

One of my favorite guilty pleasures in life is to curl up on my sofa on a rainy weekend afternoon with a cup of tea and watch a bit of TV. And always guaranteed to bring my husband and even my little boy over to the sofa to cozy down and join me is an episode of Curb Appeal: The Block, the exterior home transformation show on HGTV. We’re all hooked on it! If you haven’t tuned in, the show features a home that is in desperate need of an exterior makeover. The homes they choose are the eyesores of their neighborhoods! The HGTV team swoops in like design angels and helps out the lucky homeowner with a fabulous exterior renovation plan. After wowing both the viewers at home and the home’s residents with their creative redesign concept, they swing into action. After a whirlwind few days, the home is revealed—and dramatically transformed. And, if all that isn’t enough to lure you in for an episode, HGTV also spruces up other homes in the neighborhood with a fresh coat of paint on some trim here, a few new planters out front there, or a refashioned patio area a few houses down the road. It is such fun to watch!

A few weeks ago, the HGTV producers of Curb Appeal: The Block were looking to team up with a quality painting contractor in the San Francisco Bay Area on some projects for the show. Their search quickly lead them to MB Jessee. After all, with our reputation for providing excellent customer service and superior craftsmanship combined with their amazing creativity and talent, MB Jessee and HGTV are a perfect match! After meeting with Matt, our president, on site at homes in Alameda, Contra Costa and San Francisco counties, HGTV was ready to put our MB Jessee painters to work. The first painting project for the show was a lovely Spanish style home in the Berkeley Hills and we’ve since moved on to a home in El Cerrito. A classic San Francisco row house in the Mission District is up next with several more painting & staining projects planned over the next few months.

The episodes of HGTV’s Curb Appeal: The Block featuring MB Jessee Painting and the unique homes of the San Francisco Bay Area will air locally in April of next year. Check it out and let us know your thoughts!

Customer Reviews

“The finish on my kitchen cabinets had failed, becoming tacky and grimy around the handles. M B Jessee gave me a reasonable quote, far below some others, and did an outstanding job, striping the original varnish and refinishing with a new lacquer finish. The cabinets look like new. Work was done 1 day faster than estimated. The crew was extremely hard-working, considerate, and neat. Highly recommend M B Jessee.”

“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!”

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

— Paul Markovich

“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 walk through 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.”

— Joshua Jansen

“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

“In September, MBJessee finished painting two sides of our 3-story condominium building (six owners). We were impressed by the professionalism of the company and every one of its workers, Matt Jessee couldn't have been more helpful in planning the project. His painters were well-trained, easy to communicate with and eager to please. In addition to painting the stucco, they made extensive repairs on windows and frames, which will save us considerable money in the future. They finished earlier than anticipated, with as many as five men working on the job, and the scaffolding came down the next day. All of us were delighted with the results. Now my husband and I are looking forward to having MB Jessee paint our own apartment later this month. Matt and Gustavo (who will be our crew leader again) have explained how they will work to make the painting proceed smoothly while we're living here, and they have been endlessly patient with our protracted decision-making process. If you look at their website, you'll learn that MB Jessee is an exemplary company that takes good care of its workers as well as its customers, and contributes public service projects to the community. All in all, we can't recommend MB Jessee highly enough.”

“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 highly recommend MB Jesse Painting to anyone looking for a professional team that does an impressive job. They are on time, efficient and clean up well each and every day they are on site. They pay attention to detail and listen to the needs of their clients. In addition, they give back to the community. A Five Star team all the way around.”

“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

“Richard and crew have been great, for sure. As much as I look forward to having the job done and my house back in order, I really enjoyed having them around. You should feel really good about how they represent your company.”
