 Painting and Caulking: How They Work Together To Protect Your Property

We all know that paint can drastically improve your property’s appearance. In fact, a professional paint job is the fastest, most cost-effective route to an updated look, offering lasting value at the same time.

Paint is more than a pretty face, though. It’s also a shield for your surfaces, blocking out UV damage, pests, premature decay, rot, moisture, and more.

This is why we invest time in our preparation process, ensuring that your primer and paint can bond securely and be set up for success. Cleaning, scraping, sanding, repairs… Each step works together to deliver the strongest, best paint job possible.

Today, let’s focus on another unsung hero of the exterior painting process: caulk.

Caulking Services in the Bay Area

Just like interior caulking, exterior caulk helps create a smooth finish, seamlessly filling small cracks and gaps. Outdoors, however, your caulking has a few additional items in its job description.

First and foremost, exterior caulk helps create a weather-tight seal, making it a key player in your property’s overall efficiency. It also locks out moisture, in turn preventing water damage, rot, and decay. Age will eventually get the best of it, though, turning the material brittle. Cracks form and chunks can fall out, breaking down the armor.

During your routine repaint or touch-ups, have your painter check your caulking. Proactive replacement can save you a lot of money in avoidable damage (and subsequent repairs).

Take a look at the photos above! Our team recently painted this commercial Bay Area property, including stripping out the failed caulking around the windows and replacing it with fresh material.

We then painted the facility, completing the fresh look (and protection).

Customer Reviews

“I highly recommend MB Jesse Painting to anyone looking for a professional team that does an impressive job. They are on time, efficient and clean up well each and every day they are on site. They pay attention to detail and listen to the needs of their clients. In addition, they give back to the community. A Five Star team all the way around.”

— Erin Troy

“Matt, We are very happy with how all of the painting worked out. We were extremely impressed with the quality of the work in the bathroom. I liked working with Victor, he and Marvin were extremely conscientious about doing a great job, not just the minimum. I know the front door took a lot longer than you'd expected. But they did it PERFECTLY. We never thought it could turn out like that! Thanks again for the great work. We'll be calling you again in the future!”

“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

“The kitchen looks NEW! You guys are amazing.”

“The painters at MB Jesse are top notch! Cesar's team was super friendly and helpful. They were very polite and accommodating. Their expertise in everything painting related was evident in their attention to detail and efficiency painting tricky spaces. The apartment looks brand new!”

— Adam Swisher

“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 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 just wanted to thank you all for doing such a phenomenal job on our recent house painting. We are very happy with the outcome and can't say enough good things about the crew. Everyone working on the project was outstanding and made it a great experience. Thanks to everyone.”

“I had my wooden kitchen cabinets painted white. Anabal and Danielle were doing the job. I have nothing but praise for them. They came on time, cleaned up every day, were respective, friendly and helpful. If the rest of Jessee's crew are as great as Anabal and Danielle, this company will go far.”

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”

“Edy and crew are hard at work. They are doing a great job. Very professional outfit you have. Your crew is a delight. You may use me for a reference!”

“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.”
