Plaster Repair in the Bay Area - Proactively Keeping Your Walls Beautiful and Healthy

Plaster, though not used as often these days in modern construction, offers tremendous benefits. It’s solid and strong, resists mold, and deadens sound as well. These are all attributes that any interior space would be happy to have.

As the baby boom of the last century came along, however, a wall and ceiling material that didn’t require so much technical skill to install became necessary. After all, whole neighborhoods were being erected as fast as possible in the 1950s, and there just wasn’t time for the artistry of flawless plastering.

Enter the era of drywall (gypsum board).

If your home has plaster walls, you are fortunate in many ways. You also may have found, however, that it can be a little difficult to find a painting company with the skills and knowledge necessary for plaster repair and care. Our team at MB Jessee is happy to meet that need for our Bay Area clients, delivering old-school craftsmanship in our modern world.

Common Signs That Your Plaster Walls Need Repair

We can’t overemphasize how important proactive plaster repair really is. Ignored or unnoticed symptoms eventually require more extensive correction, making prompt care the most cost-effective and sensible option.

  • Watch for Cracks - Plaster may be solid, but it also is brittle. This means that expansion and contraction within your home, and natural shifts, can cause cracking over time.
  • Monitor Cracks - Hairline cracks are common and acceptable. If you have one already, just watch it closely, or maybe snap a photo if you don’t quite trust your memory. If it spreads or widens, it’s time to call a professional.
  • Water Damage - If your walls experience moisture intrusion, on a large or small scale, it is important to call a painting company that deals with plaster repair. As we mentioned above, catching damage and decay early is key.

Assessment is an essential first step, making it absolutely imperative that you find a qualified, experienced plaster repair expert. Determining whether the repair can be made topically or if there is an underlying structural issue, for example, is a crucial first step that will impact the overall success of your project.

“It was a great experience working with MB Jessee. The crew was careful and thorough as they painted the house, sealed stucco cracks, repaired dry-rotted wood, stained the deck, etc. Robert, Gersson, Jose, and all of the people involved in the process from the estimate to the job completion were friendly and professional.”

“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.

“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.”

“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.”
