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

“Julie, by the way, I have never been so impressed with the service of a painting job before! It was like magical elves came and painted our walls without us having to do a thing! It looks amazing and just wanted to let you know how happy we are. Thanks”

— Anja

“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

“I love the article in the paper on your company. Thank you for supporting our community by painting at the Claremont Middle School. Thanks!”

— Carla Banks

“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

“Just had MB Jessee paint the interior of our house and they did a wonderful job. They tackled some crazy wallpaper as well as painted some very high ceilings and walls. The whole process was quick and they did a great job! We are very pleased. I was also very impressed by the crew. They were very personable, kind and actually took pride in the work they were doing. In one of our conversations with the lead Ricardo, he actually told me he was very proud of how the rooms had turned out. I agree sir! It turned out great and it's not often you hear someone thinking of your home like they would theirs, and putting that level of work and quality into it. That made a huge difference in how I viewed this company. Ricardo, you were fantastic and thank you for the great job, we will be using you again.”

“Our paint crew did a great job and the foreman, Gersson was exceptionally great to work with. He was always available to answer questions, good at problem-solving, very patient, kind, and highly professional with great customer service. We definitely recommend this company, and Gersson and his crew.”

— Andrea Y.

“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!”

— Heidi B

“Many thanks to Rigoberto and Damon and the extraordinary team who transformed my castle in the skies.They are magicians. I appreciate their work very much.”

— Kathleen A

“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.”

— Mike C.
Livermore, CA

“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 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

“M.B. Jessee painted the exterior of my Spanish house over 9 years ago, and they did such an incredible job that they are still getting referrals from me today. The paint is holding up perfectly -- there is absolutely no peeling chipping or any other deterioration. I still remember that my final walk-through list consisted of items written on one side of a 3x5 index card (and I'm REAL picky about my house!) However, when Matt and I did that walk-through over HALF the items were no longer an issue, as his team had noticed them first and they had already been resolved.”
