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

“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

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

— Paul Markovich

“Charles finished yesterday and did a fantastic job. We really enjoyed meeting Charles and having him in our home. 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.”

— Ken Morrison

“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.”

— Anni S.

“Just wanted to let you know that the crew was great to have around the house for the past two weeks. All three of them were professional, courteous, and attentive to my thoughts/concerns and were extremely knowledgeable. They paid great attention to the detail and it shows.”

— Mark & Roberta Gross

“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

“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.”

— Joshua J.

“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.”

— Beth

“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

“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

“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.

“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”
