Summertime Painting and Maintenance Tips for HOAs in the San Francisco Bay Area

 Summertime Painting and Maintenance Tips  for HOAs in the San Francisco Bay Area

With summertime weather officially here, it's the perfect time for Homeowners Associations (HOAs) to prioritize exterior painting maintenance. From power washing to stucco repair, routine touch-ups to repaints, this is an ideal opportunity to preserve both the aesthetic appeal and structural integrity of your properties.

As an extra benefit, this type of routine care actually helps your budget go further, plus it reduces pop-up expenses that you maybe hadn’t anticipated. In other words, it pays off to stay in the driver’s seat with a proactive maintenance plan.

The Benefits of Summertime Exterior Painting and Maintenance

Digging even deeper, painting maintenance during the summer months has several advantages. Our mild weather conditions allow for:

  • Faster drying times without any risk of the rainy stretches that we have during the winter and spring seasons

  • Optimal conditions for paint application

  • Dry summer weather helps to reveal any potential issues such as wood rot or stucco damage that may have been masked by the rainy season

Key Exterior Painting Tasks for HOAs

What should you include in your maintenance plan? Here are a few ideas:

  1. Power Washing: Power washing is a crucial part of maintaining the exterior of your buildings. It removes dust, grime, and mildew that can deteriorate the paint over time, keeping your buildings looking fresh and well-maintained.

  2. Regular Inspections: Regular inspections can identify problems like peeling paint, wood rot, or stucco damage early, preventing more costly repairs down the line. These inspections should be thorough, covering all exterior aspects of the buildings.

  3. Wood Rot Repair: In climates like the Bay Area, especially after a wet winter, wood rot can be a common issue. Summer is the perfect time to identify and repair any issues and prevent damage.

  4. Stucco Repair: Stucco damage can lead to water leaks and intrusion if not addressed promptly, and pest problems too. Summertime maintenance should definitely include checking for any stucco cracks and repairing them quickly.

  5. Professional Painting Touch-ups: Timely touch-ups keep high-traffic areas fresh and protected, enhancing the overall appearance of your property and extending the lifespan of the paint job.

Tips for Effective Summertime Exterior Painting Maintenance

You deserve not only an exceptional paint job, but an exceptional experience overall. Here are a few tips to keep in mind to maximize your projects:

  • Planning and Scheduling: Plan these tasks in advance, in coordination with your painting company, to ensure minimal disruption to residents. This also allows for peak efficiency during your project.

  • Work with Professionals: Partner with true HOA painting professionals. Having the expertise to carry out the work efficiently and to a high standard ultimately saves you time and additional costs.

FAQ Section

Q: "How often should HOAs schedule exterior painting maintenance?"

A: Generally, it's recommended to conduct a thorough inspection and maintenance annually. However, power washing could be performed more frequently, depending on the local conditions.

Q: "Can we do these exterior painting maintenance tasks ourselves?"

A: While minor touch-ups can be done independently, tasks like power washing, wood rot repair, and stucco repair require specialized equipment and skills. That’s why it's best to hire professionals that have a vested interest in your project’s success.

Q: "What happens if we neglect these maintenance tasks?"

A: Neglecting regular maintenance can lead to accelerated wear and tear, structural issues, and ultimately, a decrease in property value. Regular maintenance helps avoid these problems and keeps your properties looking their best.

Customer Reviews

“High quality work from a pleasant and qualified staff. Thank you!”

— Paul Markovich

“I can't say enough about how courteous and professional my foreman was. He was on time every morning and arrived cheerful and ready to go. He is highly organized and very thoughtful. He was extremely careful and respectful when moving my belongings - a mature professional.”

— Nora Robinson

“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!”

“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.”

— Richard

“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

“Matt, Julie & Ricardo, I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank the three of you for the wonderful job you did in hosting the SFBA NARI Chapter Meeting on Wednesday evening. Everything was perfect from beginning to end. Members and guests alike walked away with a truly positive experience. The "painter for a day" and the cookies in the paint cans were an absolute brilliant touch and received rave reviews. What a wonderful way to do such positive marketing. Thanks again for a truly memorable experience for our members and guests. You are valued as a NARI member.”

— Judy Tufo, SFBA NARI Executive Director

“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 walkthrough 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.”

He is a great guy in addition to his attention to detail in his work, the protection of our floors, walls and furnishings, and his overall interaction with us both. I would be pleased to recommend him to any of my clients.”

“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.”

“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!”
