Why Is It Important To Hire a Painter with an In-house Carpentry Team?

carpentry and painting services Why Is It Important To Hire a Painter with an In-house Carpentry Team?

You’ve heard us say it before, and we’ll say it again: surface preparation is everything in the world of commercial and residential painting. Having a solid, healthy substrate makes or breaks the rest of the process, and dictates the performance of your coating.

While sanding and cleaning are crucial, sometimes surfaces need more than that. Wood rot, for example, is a common issue, and requires skilled wood repair or replacement before painting.

This is where having an in-house carpentry team becomes invaluable.

Doesn’t Every Painter Have Carpentry Services?

A lot of painting companies offer carpentry, but that doesn’t mean that they actually do the work themselves. It means that they can subcontract the project to a carpenter in their network. This system can work just fine, but it does involve extra steps, time, and expense.

In-House Carpentry Services Keep Your Project On-Track

 Why Is It Important To Hire a Painter with an In-house Carpentry Team?

Finding a painting company with a carpentry division streamlines the whole process.

Your estimator can spot the problem areas during the initial consultation, making note of what will need a closer look and evaluation. We can then factor this right into your estimate, eliminating any surprises or wasted time.

Having carpenters on our team also means that the work can be finished to our standards by professionals who are invested, familiar with our services, and work side-by-side with our painters.

A Smoother, Simpler Painting Process

Growing this division was a calculated choice on our part. We wanted to keep the workflow smooth and completely consistent, and having a skilled carpentry team has made that possible. Our clients love it too, knowing that with one call they can have repairs and painting taken care of - no issues, no hidden expenses, and no surprises.

The takeaway?

If you came across this article, maybe as you do your due diligence by researching before hiring a painter, we hope you’ve discovered one more good question to ask. At the very least, it could spark a helpful conversation, letting you gain a little more insight into your painter’s process and capabilities.

Best of luck with your project!

Customer Reviews

“Just had MB Jessee paint the interior of our house and they did a wonderful job. They tackled some crazy wallpaper as well as painted some very high ceilings and walls. The whole process was quick and they did a great job! We are very pleased. I was also very impressed by the crew. They were very personable, kind and actually took pride in the work they were doing. In one of our conversations with the lead Ricardo, he actually told me he was very proud of how the rooms had turned out. I agree sir! It turned out great and it's not often you hear someone thinking of your home like they would theirs, and putting that level of work and quality into it. That made a huge difference in how I viewed this company. Ricardo, you were fantastic and thank you for the great job, we will be using you again.”

“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

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

— Paul Markovich

“Hello Matt,Just another notice of thanks to your wonderful crew, Rigoberto, Javier and John. They did fantastic work, with Rigo providing meticulous and conscientious attention to the details and excellent woodwork finishing, as evidenced by the beautiful fireplace. Javier did a fantastic job in the bathroom especially, it looks "brand new," and John always does quality work, both with the interior and exterior. I can tell they care about what they do. Rigo's "punch out" was very thorough, too. I will call again when I need some more work and will definitely recommend your company and fine crew. I also felt as a homeowner, I could leave my house in their good hands during the day and that took a lot of worry from me, they were honest, prompt and reliable. They were also very kind, respectful and clean in their work, very professional. Thank you.”

“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

“Today I received a beautiful bouquet from your company. It was totally unexpected and very much appreciated--a lovely surprise. Also today, your crew finished my job. I am so pleased with all their fine work. Richard is absolutely amazing and a total delight to work with. He was also extremely helpful during the paint color process. The interior work in my home far exceeded my expectations. A big thank you to you and the crew for an outstanding job. Thank you, thank you for a terrific job!”

“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.

“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”

“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.

“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

“Dear Matt,You must be so proud of your men! They were fantastic to have around. Polite, courteous and hardworking. I am so pleased with the outcome of our home--in fact, I couldn't be any more pleased than I am!”

“Just wanted to let you know that the crew was great to have around the house for the past two weeks. All three of them were professional, courteous, and attentive to my thoughts/concerns and were extremely knowledgeable. They paid great attention to the detail and it shows.”
