Surprising Benefits of Exterior Painting in the Bay Area

Painting your home is an investment; there’s no doubt about it.

But, like any good investment, you can expect it to pay off, delivering a return that you’ll definitely find valuable.

As a side note, you may be asking yourself how long you can expect your exterior paint to last. There are a number of important contributing factors to consider, and for more on that be sure to check out these keys to beautiful, lasting exterior paint. Entering the painting process knowledgeably can be the difference between a frustrating 3-4 year paint job that quits early and an enduring 7-10 year finish.

What Are the Tangible Benefits of Professional Exterior Painting?

We can start with the obvious: a beautiful paint job looks fantastic, instantly boosting curb appeal and pride of ownership. This is also a practical way to showcase your own preferences, taste, and personality.

Beyond just looking fantastic, however, high-quality paint also works hard for you and your home.

How exactly? Here are just a few of the ways that your paint is working over-time.

Did You Know That Your Paint...

  • Protects against termites and other pests that are looking for a new place to live?
  • Protects against the elements, including UV damage, moisture, salt, and more? It’s the first line of defense!
  • Can increase the lifespan of your home’s siding?
  • Protects against the destructive power of mold and mildew?
  • Offers one of the highest levels of return on investment of any home improvement project?

Let’s dig into that last point a little more. It’s worth it, don’t you think?

Return On Investment for Exterior Painting

As a homeowner, you likely look at most home improvement projects (the larger ones anyway) through the lens of long term investment and what return you can expect. It just makes cents (and dollars).

Painting, interior and exterior, offers a lot of value, often allowing you to recoup a large portion of what you paid. It also can help your property attract interest and move on the market faster.

One Final Word of Advice...

We suggest carefully researching your painting company. Find someone who doesn’t simply offer bargain pricing, but is licensed, insured, stands by their work, and has a track record of doing things the right way. You’ll never regret it!

Customer Reviews

“Very easy to work with, they did an outstanding job with our project of re-painting our painting our kitchen cabinets. Given the scope of the job and that our kitchen is roughly half of our upstairs living area they did a fantastic job of minimizing the mess. Workmanship was top notch, would definitely recommend.”

— Vince Scola

“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!”

“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.”

“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.”

“In September, MBJessee finished painting two sides of our 3-story condominium building (six owners). We were impressed by the professionalism of the company and every one of its workers, Matt Jessee couldn't have been more helpful in planning the project. His painters were well-trained, easy to communicate with and eager to please. In addition to painting the stucco, they made extensive repairs on windows and frames, which will save us considerable money in the future. They finished earlier than anticipated, with as many as five men working on the job, and the scaffolding came down the next day. All of us were delighted with the results. Now my husband and I are looking forward to having MB Jessee paint our own apartment later this month. Matt and Gustavo (who will be our crew leader again) have explained how they will work to make the painting proceed smoothly while we're living here, and they have been endlessly patient with our protracted decision-making process. If you look at their website, you'll learn that MB Jessee is an exemplary company that takes good care of its workers as well as its customers, and contributes public service projects to the community. All in all, we can't recommend MB Jessee highly enough.”

“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.”
