 What’s Included in the Professional Interior Painting Process?

Have you ever wondered what to expect during the interior painting process?

Sure, you’re looking for a beautiful paint job, but what about the other details woven through the whole experience, from the first call to the final walkthrough?

Let’s dig into a few key points; facets of the process that you might not immediately think of, but that have a huge impact. And, if you’re currently looking for a house painter, feel free to use these as talking points to help you find the best professional possible.

1. Feel Valued, Right From Step 1

We’ve mentioned this before, but it bears repeating… You deserve to feel valued and important, and to have your time respected. We’re talking punctuality, prompt communication, and a detailed estimate that covers all the bases.

2. Health and Safety Protocols

Hiring a house painter always involves trust, but especially these days. A number of our recent reviews, in fact, have specifically mentioned being grateful for our masked painters that respect social distancing and health standards. It’s a big deal!

3. Masking (Surfaces, Not Just Faces)

A project starts with prep, and not just actual surface prep. Project containment is key, meticulously protecting surrounding spaces and surfaces. Furniture, flooring, masking off trim and windows, and the list goes on.

4. Protecting Your Floors

A lot of homeowners don’t really consider foot traffic, until the process begins… You don’t need shoes worn across hardwood or carpet, especially as painters come in and out and set up their work stations. Beyond old-school drop cloths (which still do have a place in some cases), we lay down a durable, disposable covering that neatly and securely covers your floors. When necessary, our painters also wear slip-on shoe covers.

5. Communication

Daily communication is a huge part of the process, ensuring that you’re loving the process, the results, and know exactly how your project is progressing. The best way to do this is to have a designated job site leader who is your clear point of contact, and can make sure every detail is on-track and carefully managed.

The takeaway?

You should feel comfortable, confident, and in-the-know every step of the way. If you have any other questions about your painting project or process, feel free to contact us. You can chat with us live right here on our website, or contact us.

Customer Reviews

“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.”

“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.”

“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

“Richard and crew have been great, for sure. As much as I look forward to having the job done and my house back in order, I really enjoyed having them around. You should feel really good about how they represent your company.”

— Jessica Dodson

“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

“The painters at MB Jesse are top notch! Cesar's team was super friendly and helpful. They were very polite and accommodating. Their expertise in everything painting related was evident in their attention to detail and efficiency painting tricky spaces. The apartment looks brand new!”

— Adam Swisher

“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

“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.”

“Matt, We are very happy with how all of the painting worked out. We were extremely impressed with the quality of the work in the bathroom. I liked working with Victor, he and Marvin were extremely conscientious about doing a great job, not just the minimum. I know the front door took a lot longer than you'd expected. But they did it PERFECTLY. We never thought it could turn out like that! Thanks again for the great work. We'll be calling you again in the future!”

“The kitchen looks NEW! You guys are amazing.”

“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.

“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.”
