 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!

 What’s Included in the Professional Interior Painting Process?

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

“I want to express my thanks for a job well done. The rooms look great and there is no problem with any marks on the all the trim, floor, carpet, etc. The paint job is lovely. I also want to express my thanks for the level of professionalism the foreman showed in running the job. He was very attentive to any changes I needed to make, was extremely careful in getting the faux paint color and effect correct. Thanks so much for a job well done.”

— Suzan D’Arcy

“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

“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

“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

“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 can't say enough about how courteous and professional my foreman was. He was on time every morning and arrived cheerful and ready to go. He is highly organized and very thoughtful. He was extremely careful and respectful when moving my belongings - a mature professional.”

— Nora Robinson

“MB Jessee painters are stellar! As a designer I've worked with numerous companies over the years, and MB Jessee is a top-notch firm. From the first phone call to the final clean up, every person is courteous, professional, and hard working. The owner, Matt, is a charitable leader who has instilled his team with integrity and honesty providing the customer with a first class experience at a fair price with a paint job that is guaranteed to last. I highly recommend MB Jessee. Thank you Matt and your STAR crew-Daniel, Rigoberto, Vicente, Edy, Pedro, and Mario, for a job well executed! Cynthia Brian, ASID, Starstyle® Productions, llc”

“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

“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

— Daylan

“The people at M.B. Jessee are great – from the painters to the office staff to Matt. Talk about leadership from the top.”
