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

 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

“The people at M.B. Jessee are great – from the painters to the office staff to Matt. Talk about leadership from the top.”

— Kevin Ames, Mark Becker Homes

“The entire MB Jessee team is courteous, efficient and professional. From scheduling and estimating to the crew managers and crew, they all did an excellent job on a small (but complicated) two room project in my house. I'm already thinking about getting them scheduled for the next project in the spring.”

— Cari Cheney

“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”

— Stacey R.

“Richard and crew have been great, for sure. As much as I look forward to having the job done and my house back in order, I really enjoyed having them around. You should feel really good about how they represent your company.”

— Jessica Dodson

“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!”

— Craig
Alameda, CA

“My entire experience with MB Jesse was very professional. The crew were very friendly and super accommodating of my ridiculous schedule and geriatric pets in the house. The finished product, which was pretty much my entire house, far exceeds my expectations. Would definitely work with them again!”

— Heather Jordan

“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!”

— Jo

“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.”

— Suzan D’Arcy

“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.”

— Erin T.
