 How Do You Know If You Are Getting a Reliable Commercial Painter?

When you are buying a used car, you look under the hood, and maybe kick the tires. If the potential purchase is a horse, you are supposed to look at its teeth (unless, of course, it’s a gift horse; don’t look them in the mouth!). But when you hire a commercial painter, how can you ensure your satisfaction? How do you evaluate a painting company?

To start with, please don’t kick our tires! Here are a few signs you can look for to help you distinguish between an excellent choice that will serve you well, or a lemon.

Hiring and Training of Employees

No matter what other features a painting company has, the quality of their painters is vital. Part of the question is their training and skill level, but even more importantly, are they reliable, good people?

At MB Jessee, we perform full background checks and drug tests on all potential employees. We want to be sure we are working with trustworthy, honest painters. This gives us peace of mind for our own business, and this sense of wellbeing is one we can share with our clients.

In addition, we also emphasize thorough training. All of our commercial painting employees go through a rigorous initial training period, followed by ongoing seminars for continued skill enhancement and safety tips. Our painters are knowledgeable and talented, offering our commercial clients the best painting in the industry!

Track Record of Excellence on Significant Jobs

When a commercial painter has a long history of applying commercial coating for major facilities and companies, you know you are working with a well-run organization. The track record of successful contracts tells you an important story.

For all of us at MB Jessee, our resume of completed commercial painting projects is something we take great pleasure in! As we drive around the San Francisco Bay area, we can see the tangible ways we have contributed to the beauty and commerce of the communities. From luxury high-rises and exclusive office buildings to local monuments and historic structures, our painters have done it all!

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 kitchen looks NEW! You guys are amazing.”

“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

“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

“Very easy to work with, they did an outstanding job with our project of re-painting our painting our kitchen cabinets. Given the scope of the job and that our kitchen is roughly half of our upstairs living area they did a fantastic job of minimizing the mess. Workmanship was top notch, would definitely recommend.”

— Vince Scola

“Our paint crew did a great job and the foreman, Gersson was exceptionally great to work with. He was always available to answer questions, good at problem-solving, very patient, kind, and highly professional with great customer service. We definitely recommend this company, and Gersson and his crew.”

“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

“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.”

“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.”

“Awesome work by highly experienced, professional painters. They were: Conscious about the amount of time it would take. Ours had a lot of pre-work and took 3 weeks. Accommodating when we added a few last-minute changes Understanding when a heatwave hit and we remove some of the plastic sheeting over windows, which they had to put back up the next day. Accessible, especially the on-site crew (Hi Jose & Victor!) -- always answering questions and checking in. The end result is a perfect paint job that makes our 94-year-old house look brand new. I would definitely hire MBJ again”
