 Painting a Historic Venue in Benicia, CA

“I started with a single bid cost to do the bulk of a very large historic building that needed major prep work, but after seeing the initial results...well...I added three more areas which now looked tired next to the pristine work this company accomplished! What an incredible execution of professional workmanship, which seems hard to find these days.”

This historic mansion, built in 1861, has a unique history. Designed by east coast architects, it was a home away from home for Civil War officers. If only these walls could talk… The grounds are part of the Historic Benicia Arsenal, and have been walked by both General Grant and Sherman.

Today, this gorgeous mansion is a popular wedding venue. Given its age, significance, and the need to look its best for every photo opportunity and event, painting this property was a unique privilege.

We worked closely with Reed R, property manager, developing a plan for surface repair and painting that would bring this estate back to its full glory.

Extensive Surface Preparation and Painting

“The site was left immaculate after each day's work, even with all the scraping that was transpired. Planting areas were covered, plastic covering disposed each evening, equipment put away and a nice greeting each time I came to view the work in progress.”

Our process included:

  • Pressure washing

  • Protecting the grounds and plants

  • Masking all surround surfaces

  • Extensive scraping and sanding

  • Painting the fascia and stucco siding

  • Painting a variety of the windows and doors

  • Spot priming and painting the trellis

As always, we provided careful attention to detail, respect for the space, and friendly, uniformed painters.

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.”

“MB Jessee painters are stellar! As a designer I've worked with numerous companies over the years, and MB Jessee is a top-notch firm. From the first phone call to the final clean up, every person is courteous, professional, and hard working. The owner, Matt, is a charitable leader who has instilled his team with integrity and honesty providing the customer with a first class experience at a fair price with a paint job that is guaranteed to last. I highly recommend MB Jessee. Thank you Matt and your STAR crew-Daniel, Rigoberto, Vicente, Edy, Pedro, and Mario, for a job well executed! Cynthia Brian, ASID, Starstyle® Productions, llc”

“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!”

“The completed 'Client Satisfaction Survey' we sent in only modestly reflects our total satisfaction with the work. As a retired small business owner, I compliment you on setting 'best practices' that are consistently followed. Everything described in your marketing materials was a reality! The crew is a super bowl team and our neighbors commented on how quiet they were. We are very happy to be a client of MB Jessee.”

“Today I received a beautiful bouquet from your company. It was totally unexpected and very much appreciated--a lovely surprise. Also today, your crew finished my job. I am so pleased with all their fine work. Richard is absolutely amazing and a total delight to work with. He was also extremely helpful during the paint color process. The interior work in my home far exceeded my expectations. A big thank you to you and the crew for an outstanding job. Thank you, thank you for a terrific job!”

“Julie,Just to let you know I am very appreciative of your crew catching the plumbing/mold problem. It was very astute of them. I wanted to let you know that again your crew has done excellent work here, please pass this along to Mr. Jessee. There are some bumps in the road here, but the painting and your crew has not been one of them. Their work is the only thing going right currently, and this crew is very nice and respectful. It is much appreciated. Thank you again.”
