 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

“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.”

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

— Paul Markovich

“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

“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.

“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

“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

“I highly recommend MB Jesse Painting to anyone looking for a professional team that does an impressive job. They are on time, efficient and clean up well each and every day they are on site. 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

“Matt, Julie & Ricardo, I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank the three of you for the wonderful job you did in hosting the SFBA NARI Chapter Meeting on Wednesday evening. Everything was perfect from beginning to end. Members and guests alike walked away with a truly positive experience. The "painter for a day" and the cookies in the paint cans were an absolute brilliant touch and received rave reviews. What a wonderful way to do such positive marketing. Thanks again for a truly memorable experience for our members and guests. You are valued as a NARI member.”

— Judy Tufo, SFBA NARI Executive Director

“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.
Oakland, CA

“Everyone I dealt with was nice, helpful, and very professional. The price was reasonable! (I didn't feel like I was getting the "San Francisco price." The attention to detail and work quality was excellent. They did what they said they would do in the exact timeframe they said they would do. Highly recommend!”

— Tim Tyson

“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

“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.”
