Are you considering what type of paint to buy for your home, or where to buy your house paint? Waffling between just running in to a big box home-improvement store or heading out to a quality paint store? Both options definitely exist here in the Bay Area.

Deciding where to buy your paint can actually have a significant effect on your whole painting project. There are several reasons that you may want to avoid the big box stores, and choose your paint in a paint store.

Paint Stores Offer Superior Customer Service

When you buy paint in a paint store, you are usually also getting expert advice along with it. Employees in these stores will be able to knowledgeably tell you the best types of paints and tools to use for your unique project. Getting this kind of guidance can save you from costly and time-consuming mistakes, and give you insight when you face a potential problem or unique situation.

Employees in big box stores are not often able to be so fully and specifically trained. They will know the basics of color matching and standard application, but there is a good chance they have never heard of some of the tools and paints needed for specialty techniques or textures. They might not know what to advise you in regard to authentic colors for historic homes, or techniques for plaster repair.

Even if you have to drive a little farther to find a good paint store, you will likely be glad you consulted someone with the expertise to answer your questions accurately before you purchase paint and supplies.

Paint Stores Offer Superior Products

Another reason to choose a good paint store for your purchase is that you will be able to find more top-quality, reputable paints. Using a premium paint will help ensure that your project turns out beautiful and keeps on looking beautiful for a long time. A good paint store will usually be better able to point you to a product you can trust, such as Benjamin Moore's eco-friendly Aura line, or the long-lasting Duration line from Sherwin Williams.

Quality San Francisco painting contractors agree that using high-end products produces a better-looking finish, and will last longer before your next repainting. A good paint store will be able to supply you with this kind of product, as well as the excellent brushes and other supplies used by professional painters.

Customer Reviews

“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”

“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

“It was a great experience working with MB Jessee. The crew was careful and thorough as they painted the house, sealed stucco cracks, repaired dry-rotted wood, stained the deck, etc. Robert, Gersson, Jose, and all of the people involved in the process from the estimate to the job completion were friendly and professional.”

— Mike C.
Livermore, CA

“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.”

“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.”

“I cannot imagine finer painters--and I have worked with many. They work exceptionally hard. It is a joy to see their workmanship!”

— Alicia R.
Oakland

“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

“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!”

— Craig
Alameda, CA

“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.
Pleasant Hill

“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.

“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

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