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

“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

“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 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.”

“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

“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

“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.”
