 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

“Everyone I dealt with was nice, helpful, and very professional. The price was reasonable! (I didn't feel like I was getting the "San Francisco price." The attention to detail and work quality was excellent. They did what they said they would do in the exact timeframe they said they would do. Highly recommend!”

— Tim Tyson

“Matt, Julie & Ricardo, I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank the three of you for the wonderful job you did in hosting the SFBA NARI Chapter Meeting on Wednesday evening. Everything was perfect from beginning to end. Members and guests alike walked away with a truly positive experience. The "painter for a day" and the cookies in the paint cans were an absolute brilliant touch and received rave reviews. What a wonderful way to do such positive marketing. Thanks again for a truly memorable experience for our members and guests. You are valued as a NARI member.”

— Judy Tufo, SFBA NARI Executive Director

“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

“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!”

“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

“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.”
