Love Gray Homes? This Exterior Painting Project in Piedmont, CA, Is for You

The value of well-chosen and applied exterior paint is multifaceted.

On one hand, the thorough inspection, repairs, and preparation that a high-end paint job provides ensures that your home’s exterior surfaces are well-protected. UV rays are blocked, moisture is locked outside, and even pests (like ants and termites) find a closed door.

Beautiful exterior paint also provides essential curb appeal, perfect for your enjoyment every day as you come and go, but also for long-term value. Prospective buyers love attractive finishes; living proof that the home has been cared for and preserved.

So, how can you be sure that your painting project delivers maximum value?

3 Attributes of a High-Value Exterior Painting Project

MBJ-Exterior-Painting.jpg#asset:5465

#1 Invest in Craftsmanship

A cheap bid from a painter may seem appealing, but you do get what you pay for. Low prices often stem from cut corners, flimsy products, or skipped/minimized surface preparation. These all spell disaster for your return on investment.

#2 Premium Paint Products

Color retention, lifespan, and durability all increase as you choose a better product. It’s worth the initial investment! You should feel comfortable asking your professional painting company what products they recommend, and why.

#3 Pick the Right Color

Stylish, neutral exterior paint colors tend to yield the highest value. It’s important to pick a color you love, first and foremost, but it’s also helpful (especially if your home is going on the market soon) to select a color that has universal appeal. And, one that blends well with the neighborhood.

Gray Exterior Paint - A Beautiful Example of a Stylish Neutral

This Piedmont home is a perfect example of a classic, attractive paint scheme. We chose Sherwin-Williams’ Resilience exterior latex paint in the following colors:

  • Body - Classic Gray

  • Windows/Trim - Black

  • Eaves - White

Didn’t it turn out beautifully?

Customer Reviews

“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”

“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

“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!”

“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.”

“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

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

— Paul Markovich

“I can't say enough about how courteous and professional my foreman was. He was on time every morning and arrived cheerful and ready to go. He is highly organized and very thoughtful. He was extremely careful and respectful when moving my belongings - a mature professional.”

— Nora Robinson

“Just wanted to let you know that the crew was great to have around the house for the past two weeks. All three of them were professional, courteous, and attentive to my thoughts/concerns and were extremely knowledgeable. They paid great attention to the detail and it shows.”

— Mark & Roberta Gross

“Hello Matt,Just another notice of thanks to your wonderful crew, Rigoberto, Javier and John. They did fantastic work, with Rigo providing meticulous and conscientious attention to the details and excellent woodwork finishing, as evidenced by the beautiful fireplace. Javier did a fantastic job in the bathroom especially, it looks "brand new," and John always does quality work, both with the interior and exterior. I can tell they care about what they do. Rigo's "punch out" was very thorough, too. I will call again when I need some more work and will definitely recommend your company and fine crew. I also felt as a homeowner, I could leave my house in their good hands during the day and that took a lot of worry from me, they were honest, prompt and reliable. They were also very kind, respectful and clean in their work, very professional. Thank you.”
