MB Jessee Tackles a Brick Home Project in Pacific Heights !
This past spring, MB Jessee had the pleasure of putting the finishing touches on a handsome two-story brick house in San Francisco’s Pacific Heights neighborhood. Anyone in California will tell you that brick housing is rare due to the shifting tectonics of the Pacific and North American plates. Earthquakes, quite simply, make brick structures collapse. Yet, there we were, painting a stately brick home. The homeowners — two well-regarded practicing San Francisco physicians’ chose MB Jessee in part because of our charitable work, specifically our associations with Mission Health Center and the Tenderloin Children’s Center. The job itself was something of a challenge for a number of reasons. First of all, we had to contend with the proximity of the neighbor’s house, which necessitated getting special permission from the owner to access his property to paint trim on that side of the home. Also, as always, there was no room for error as far as flying paint chips and other debris — timing and execution had to be perfect. The entire exterior of the home had to be painted, which included all painted windows, doors, eaves, trim, as well as wrought iron and garden railing. We utilized green-friendly Benjamin Moore and Sherwin-Williams paints for this home, which we’re happy to do since having an environmentally friendly painting business is of great importance to us. All in all, this home project was quite a challenging but ultimately rewarding experience for MB Jessee and the homeowners alike.
