Because we place a lot of emphasis on clear communication and honesty, we thought we would share a little bit of information about our pricing. You see, while we do promise that we are one of the best painting companies you will find, we may not necessarily be the cheapest.
Why Cheaper Is Not Always Better
There are plenty of painting companies out there who base all of their emphasis and marketing around their price tag. This might just work for them too, for a little while at least. After all, who doesn’t love a low price?
But here is the crucial question: how does their work hold up?
Cheap prices are generally made possible by low wages, lower quality materials, and an interest in gaining one-time paychecks rather than clients for life. That is simply not a philosophy that we have any interest in. We decided a long time ago that it is better to charge a fair price, even if it is a little more, because it allows us to guarantee a quality painting project for the amount that was bid.
What Is Built into Our Prices?
At Williams Professional Painting, on the other hand, our prices provide:
- Fair wages for dedicated, invested craftsmen - Knowing that your property is visited and cared for by honest, trustworthy people should provide you with peace of mind.
- Premium products - There is truly a huge difference between cheap products and carefully-selected, quality brands. This difference is not only based on appearance, but also on longevity. When we invest in the very best, it means that you can expect a lasting, beautiful finish that will save you money in the long run.
- Guaranteed work - With our reputation and your satisfaction in mind, we offer warranties for all labor and materials that extend further than those offered by most contractors.
In short, we want to become your painter for life, and creating a top-quality experience for you requires more than bargain-basement pricing.
This letter is in response to Job #9355, painting at XXXX XXXXXXXton Road and provide my overall assessment of the job from initial contact to completion.
First, the estimator, Alvis Hermes, showed up on time and conducted a walk around in a very professional manner. We discussed the carpentry work that also needed to be done as well as the poor condition of the paint on some areas of the house. I received the estimate from Alvis on the date promised and responded the next day.
Preparation began, as scheduled, on June 23 and painting was completed on June 30.The entire process was very professional and the painters and carpenter did an outstanding job. They were very courteous and kept me apprised of when they were going to need to enter the house, the time that they planned to show up in the morning and what was scheduled. Every day they completed a thorough cleanup of the areas around the house. Due to a medical problem ,I was unable to remove the storm windows or to assist with the windows, several were very difficult to open/ remove. Dagoberto removed and replaced the windows and I appreciate his efforts in doing this with no damage to the sills of facings. All the painting and carpentry work looks very good and I am very pleased with the overall job.
I would like to commend Alvis, the two painters and the carpenter for their professional work and courteous attitudes. I am enclosing $ 150 for you to give to the two painters.....$100 for Dagoberto and $ 5O for the other painter. Thanks.
I would like take this opportunity to express my gratitude for a job well done by you and your staff. I would like to thank Milton for selling me on your company and setting a price within our budget for the scope that I specified. I also want to thank him for his follow up during the course of the project.
Next I would like to thank Lisa. Her renderings of the finished product were great and convinced me that I had made the correct choices in color and where to apply them. I was really up in the air about some of my thoughts and she was able to put everything on paper to assist me in selling the idea to my General Manager.
Last but not least I want to thank JB your foreman and the crew. These men where awesome. I never received one complaint about them, the quality of their work, or that they ever caused an issue by blocking traffic in our very busy entry. They always managed to have the lifts out of the way of automobile and foot traffic and I never had one complaint about them getting one drop of paint where it should not have been. They work was very nicely done and the work site was always clean and neat even after quitting time.
Rick, employees are either assets or liabilities to employers. Believe me when I tell you all the folks mentioned in this review are assets to Williams Professional Painting.

Ricardo and Cesar were fantastic. Prompt, professional, and kept me informed at every step. Please let their manager know.
We had two full bathrooms renovated and needed to have the rooms painted. Williams came highly recommended on Angie's List which I religiously rely on before I engage a business. The company had a estimator scheduled the day I called during the following work week based on our availability. Alvis was well versed in the latest options for painting our spaces. He recommended a Matte finish and we both agreed on a Sherwin Williams paint. We needed one of the bathroom ceilings painted and Alvis recommended that the second bathroom ceiling was in good shape and did not need to be painted. We also got a quote for a stairwell and hallway. Finally, the kitchen ceiling needed both repair and painting. Alvis recommended painting the adjoining hall ceiling since there was no separation but suggested that we wait on painting the ceiling of our living and dining rooms that were separated but on same floor with the kitchen since, once again, the ceiling was in good shape so no need to spend the money. The crew showed up on time and focused on the two bathrooms on the first day. By the time I got home that evening, they had prepped the walls and one ceiling and had painted two coats of paint on one bathroom and one coat of paint on the second bathroom. While the paint work was excellent, the prep work in a number of spots in both bathrooms was not acceptable. I informed Alvis who promised me that the crew would resolve any concern we had. We proceeded to mark each spot that needed to be sanded and/or skim coated for the next morning. Alvis showed up the next day to ensure that the crew resolved all of our concerns. Once again, by the time I got home from work, the walls looked great, there were multiple coats of paint on both bathrooms, both ceilings had been prepped and painted to our satisfaction. The matte finish minimized accentuating any imperfections and the paint work was excellent - the crew also didi an excellent job of keeping paint off of the trim and cleaning up after each day. I would employ their services again and will have them paint the stairwell and hallway in the near future.
Bryan Pinto, one of William's foremen, and his team showed up early the first day and performed their work with efficiency and care. The team finished the job promptly and did excellent work, carefully executing detailed carpentry work on crown trim and painting as high as the peak of our four story town-home. Very impressed with their work and would hire again.
We were pleased, as always, with your work. We will probably need some more painting in the Spring or Summer and will certainly call you.
I just wanted to commend your team for doing a great job. Cristian and Walter were prompt, did a great job painting a very tall wall that I would be too scared to scale myself, and left everything clean. The colors are exactly as I wanted them, also thanks to Lisa's good work at matching the Ralph Lauren colors that I liked. I am very excited about moving into my new condo with colors that make it a space that is uniquely mine.
I am glad that your company was able to handle my job very quickly; this was absolutely no-hassle in terms of scheduling. Right now, that kind of service was what I needed, and Williams Professional Painting delivered. Please be sure to recognize Cristian, Walter, Lisa, and anyone else on the team who contributed to make this a seamless experience for me. And thank you for providing benefits for your employees and treating them well.
I wanted to let you know how happy we were with the exterior paint job that was done at our house the week of March 14, 2016. Unfortunately I cannot recall the foreman's name - I think it was Santo. He and the other painter did a wonderful job. They were very courteous and professional and we are very pleased with the work they did. I would definitely hire them again.
