What Can I Expect When I Hire a Professional House Painter?

Every fine restaurant has individual characteristics that set it apart from others; nevertheless, there is a standard of service that you can expect to be consistent from one excellent restaurant to another. A similar concept is true of house painters. While each company varies slightly in its procedures and emphases, any excellent house painting contractor will provide you with certain standards of quality.

Reliable Communication

If you have ever tried to work with an uncommunicative contractor, you know the frustration that ensues. However, a true professional emphasizes communication. This means they ask you the right questions to understand your expectations, and they communicate this to everyone who is involved in your project.

Additionally, a great painting company will tell you clearly what days they will be coming, and what times they will be arriving and leaving, so you know what to expect and what arrangements to make.

Excellent Care for Your Home

There are various ways a thoughtful house painter will go above and beyond to protect your home. For example, they may wear disposable shoe coverings or lay down clean drop cloths in the areas where they walk, keeping your floors clean and protected.

Another aspect of caring for your home is keeping a tidy work environment. While a paint job will require some tools and equipment to be spread out, it will be kept safe and orderly. At the end of each day, the site will be cleaned up to avoid inconvenience to you.

One way you can help your painter is if there is a small area where some tools and equipment can be tidily stored in the home overnight. That reduces the cleanup and setup time each day, allowing your painters to be more efficient in his or her work. However, if you would prefer not to have anything left in the home during non-work hours, a professional painter respects that.

Responsiveness to Your Concerns

As your project progresses, if you have questions about safety or concerns about how the project is turning out, an excellent house painter is always ready to address them with you thoroughly. There is flexibility for changes in the plan, and a willingness to go back to parts of the project that don’t meet your desires

Even after a house painting project is complete, a reputable painting company stands behind their work with a warranty, giving you peace of mind regarding your painting investment.

Customer Reviews

“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

“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

“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

“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

“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.”

They pay attention to detail and listen to the needs of their clients. In addition, they give back to the community. A Five Star team all the way around.”

— Erin Troy

“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.”

“I loved working with M.B. Jessee from start to finish on a relatively small paint job that grew a bit. I felt in very good hands from the moment Matt Jessee came out to give me the estimate and talk about my job. He was very easy to talk to and he handled my changes very well. Then the actual work done by Rigoberto and Mario was impeccable. They were neat and meticulous and the paint job looks beautiful. I could not have asked for more and when I did, they accommodated me 100%. I will not hesitate to call M.B. Jessee again and to refer them to friends.”

— Nancy Kurkjian

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

— Paul Markovich

“I just wanted to thank you all for doing such a phenomenal job on our recent house painting. We are very happy with the outcome and can't say enough good things about the crew. Everyone working on the project was outstanding and made it a great experience. Thanks to everyone.”

— Daylan

“The finish on my kitchen cabinets had failed, becoming tacky and grimy around the handles. M B Jessee gave me a reasonable quote, far below some others, and did an outstanding job, striping the original varnish and refinishing with a new lacquer finish. The cabinets look like new. Work was done 1 day faster than estimated. The crew was extremely hard-working, considerate, and neat. Highly recommend M B Jessee.”

— Thama B.

“Dear Matt,You must be so proud of your men! They were fantastic to have around. Polite, courteous and hardworking. I am so pleased with the outcome of our home--in fact, I couldn't be any more pleased than I am!”
