 High-Quality House Painting in the Bay Area: What Should You Look For?

There’s a tremendous difference between a mediocre paint job and a high-quality paint job for your home. And trust us, you don’t want a mediocre finish. The price tag might be initially attractive, and the paint itself might even look good, but time will definitely make the differences apparent.

We’ve outlined a few points to look for below, and you really could turn any of these into questions/talking points to share with your prospective painting company. Their answers will help you know what kind of results, value, and service experience you can expect.

What Goes Into Quality House Painting?

Here’s a closer look:

  • Fully credentialed, including being licensed and insured
  • Proven paint products (cheaper is NOT better)
  • In-house team of painters
  • Local experience and longevity
  • Clear, detailed estimate
  • Extensive surface preparation

Let’s camp on that last point a little longer.

Surface preparation dictates 80% of an exterior painting project’s success - not many Bay Area homeowners realize this. Deep cleaning, repairs, sanding, priming… These early steps create a clean, solid foundation for your paint to adhere to, and that translates to a longer-lasting (and more attractive!) paint finish.

An Exceptional House Painting Experience

You don’t just deserve great craftsmanship; you also deserve a great service experience.

We encourage you to look at reviews before hiring a painter. And don’t just look for the good ones! There will inevitably be lower ratings here and there, but the way that the painting company responded to those reviews will tell you a lot.

Here at MB Jessee Painting in Oakland, we’re grateful for an incredible team, and also for incredible clients who are so willing to share their experiences.

As an example, take a look at these kind words that were recently shared on Google and Yelp.

Customer Reviews

“Just had MB Jessee paint the interior of our house and they did a wonderful job. They tackled some crazy wallpaper as well as painted some very high ceilings and walls. The whole process was quick and they did a great job! We are very pleased. I was also very impressed by the crew. They were very personable, kind and actually took pride in the work they were doing. In one of our conversations with the lead Ricardo, he actually told me he was very proud of how the rooms had turned out. I agree sir! It turned out great and it's not often you hear someone thinking of your home like they would theirs, and putting that level of work and quality into it. That made a huge difference in how I viewed this company. Ricardo, you were fantastic and thank you for the great job, we will be using you again.”

“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

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

“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.”

“Dear Matt,You must be so proud of your men! They were fantastic to have around. Polite, courteous and hardworking. I am so pleased with the outcome of our home--in fact, I couldn't be any more pleased than I am!”

“The people at M.B. Jessee are great – from the painters to the office staff to Matt. Talk about leadership from the top.”

— Kevin Ames, Mark Becker Homes

“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.”

“Many thanks to Rigoberto and Damon and the extraordinary team who transformed my castle in the skies.They are magicians. I appreciate their work very much.”

“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.”

“My entire experience with MB Jesse was very professional. The crew were very friendly and super accommodating of my ridiculous schedule and geriatric pets in the house. The finished product, which was pretty much my entire house, far exceeds my expectations. Would definitely work with them again!”

— Heather Jordan

“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

“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.”
