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!

“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.”

“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!”

“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.

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

“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

“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

“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.”
