HGTV and MB Jessee Painting:  A Winning Combination! !

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

“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.”

“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.”

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

— Paul Markovich

“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!”

“The kitchen looks NEW! You guys are amazing.”

“I cannot imagine finer painters--and I have worked with many. They work exceptionally hard. It is a joy to see their workmanship!”

“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.”

“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.”

“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

“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.”

— Jessica Dodson

“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.”
