Contractor Checklist

We are concerned about the growing number of consumer complaints against home improvement contractors. As a result of many of the "Fly By Nights" who open up shop during the season and close down and disappear when the peak is over with, many legitimate contractors are being left with having to deal with an increase in suspicion by property owners who have been dealt with unfairly in the past.

We understand the vulnerable position that the property owner finds themselves in and we want to help stop the deceit and irresponsibility that has invaded the home improvement business.

In order to assist you in obtaining the best possible service with the least chance of running into problems after you have already selected a contractor, we are providing you with this basic checklist to use in comparing the estimates that you receive. We have answered all of the questions as they pertain to our company.

  • Is the Company properly licensed to do business ? Yes
  • Is the Company insured with liability insurance, to protect against damage to either you or your property ? Yes
  • Does the company carry workers compensation insurance to cover any injury to their employees? Yes
  • Can they provide a certificate of insurance if required ? Yes
  • How long have they been established in the area ? 30 Years
  • Do they use regular full time employees or do they hire people as they need them for a job ? We use only full time year round employees.
  • Will the owner or a qualified job foreman always be on site ? Yes
  • Has the company performed work in your area before ? Contact Us for a list of references in your area
  • If the company is a seasonal one, how will they respond to your concerns if they should arise during the off season ? WPS is a year round firm dedicated to customer satisfaction.
  • What quality (brand and line) materials will be used ? Contact Us
  • What are the deposit (down payment) requirements ? 20 %

Williams Professional Painting

Williams Professional Painting soundproofed a room in my condo by installing a layer of Quietrock over existing drywall. My goal was to soundproof against surrounding sounds coming from any of the neighbors. With the soundproofing work done by Williams Professional Painting, this goal has been attained. Abel, Rene, and Nestor were the team that installed the walls, and Rick (the business owner) and Jose oversaw the project. The team were consummate professionals. They have a lot of experience with installing Quietrock EZ-Snap and Green Glue. This type of drywall install is intensive work that requires specific skill and experience; for example, Green Glue cures fast after application, so walls with Green Glue need to be put up right after glue application. Abel and team knew all the details and did everything perfectly, including not only the Quietrock EZ-Snap and Green Glue install, but also extensively sealing all seams with acoustical caulk (Green Glue Noiseproofing Sealant was used for this), extending the electrical/cable/phone outlets and switches and adding Quietputty around them, putting back floor trim perfectly, and adding door trims (which Abel and team made) around room closet doors to match new wall thickness. At the end, they painted the room and the ceiling. They did a great job, engineering-wise (the soundproofing works great), and aesthetically (the walls, corners, ceiling, outlets, etc. look perfect, you wouldn't guess that a second layer has been added over the original). The painting job was also great. In addition, they finished in the timeframe initially agreed upon, and were attentive and responsive (to my many questions) throughout the project. Their work produced minimal amount of dust (they are pros at cutting & handling drywall). They also left the place very clean. In conclusion, a great experience.

Thanks again!

Exterior Painting Estimate

I didn't actually get any work done by Williams because my timeline would not work with the schedule but they actually sent me an email to let me know that they would have to decline the opportunity to work on my project. This is the first time I've ever received such a courtesy from contractors in the home improvement business, and I cannot express how wonderfully professional this is. I have had far too many experiences of contractors coming out to estimate, only to never contact me again, or to go through the trouble of sending me a quote and then never actually schedule the work.


While I did find someone who was able to do the work I requested in my short time frame, in the future, I will definitely contact Williams again for a bid. Just this email was enough to tell me about the company culture here, and I have great confidence in their professionalism.

Williams Professional Painting is a great company

Carlos was the lead painter. He's painted for us before, and you couldn't ask for a nicer guy to work in your home.
He was willing to go the extra mile to make sure we were satisfied. He took such pride in his work and made our windows look great.
Williams Professional Painting is a great company. They are extremely professional from first contact to final paint stroke. They stand behind their work. Will use them again and again.

This is just to give my foreman, Ricardo Salas, and his team high marks for the painting project they are completing today at my home. Ricardo and his crew were punctual, respectful of my furnishings, and eager to please. Their work is top notch and they clean up after themselves very thoroughly. Ricardo helped me re-hang heaving pictures, which was very helpful. He is a great asset to the Williams Painting Company. Many thanks.

We will be sure to use Williams Professional Painting in the future

My husband and I bought a house last summer and were in need of help with some minor painting projects. We used the "painter for a day" promotion offered through Williams Professional Painting and had a fantastic experience!

To start, Gabriela was so helpful and communicative in providing us with initial information and pricing options. She was always very responsive and quick to follow up, which we really appreciated! She got us scheduled at a convenient time for us and promptly sent email receipt of our deposit for our records.

Franklin came to paint our master bedroom and accent wall in the living room on Thursday, May 19th and my husband and I were so impressed with him! He arrived exactly on time (even a few minutes early!) and was incredibly professional and personable. I never saw him without a smile on his face. His kind demeanor and helpful attitude made the entire process so easy and pleasant. Our master bedroom was carefully and evenly painted and looks great - what a difference! Franklin also patched and repainted our accent wall in our living room as well, as a few various spots that needed touch ups and we are so pleased with the finished product! He even helped me to look through old paint left behind by our home's previous owners and removed the extra cans we no longer needed to properly dispose of it for us, which was so appreciated! Overall, Franklin did a wonderful job and was so friendly too - an added bonus!

We will be sure to use Williams Professional Painting in the future and would most definitely recommend their services to our friends and family!

A Professional Painting Project

Last week, Williams painted the main floor of my townhome. The crew (Walter and Jose) arrived on time, worked continually all day, and cleaned up their work area before leaving. They did a great job! We would use them again

A Review for Williams Professional Painting

Great job. Courteous and professional crew. Rick oversees the project on a daily basis. My house was painted about 18 months ago. I recently noticed a small peeling spot. Rick sent someone out at their first convenience. In addition to that repair, the painter found a few other minor repairs as he is specked i in addition to that repair, the painter found a few other minor repairs as he inspected the entire exterior of my house. He did a great job and I was very pleased. Will definitely have them back when I need painting again.

A Professional Interior Painting Project.

Dear Rick,

It is hard to believe that just one week ago you were here to give me my estimate. Now my job is finished!

The crew (D2, Henry, and Les) were great. They were professional, clean, polite -- in a word -- gentlemen. I felt very comfortable with them working in my home. All of the work was carried out to my satisfaction, including the exterior painting and power-washing, the interior repair/caulking prep work, trim, wall, and stairwell painting.

I will definitely call Williams Professional Painting the next time I need a reliable, trustworthy, class "A" painting job!

Sincerely,

P.S. My only regret is not having used your color stylist to assist me in my paint selection.

Note of Commendation

Rick:

We want to commend Juan, Caesar, and Eric for the excellent paint job they did at our residence during the week of 14 November 2016. The crew did outstanding work in the painting of our upstairs hallway and adjacent entranceways and niches. Their attention to detail combined with their skillful application of unique color accents and faux painting techniques has given the area done a grand appearance. Their work is the reason why when it comes to excellence, we select Williams Painting.

Review on a Recent Work

I just wanted to write and say what a nice job Walter and Gino did at our house this past week.

They were very pleasant to work with and have around.

I was very happy with the work.They were extremely focused on making sure I was happy with everything and took extra care to make things perfect.

I would happily have them back again and want to thank you for sending such a great crew to my home!

A Review on a Recent Painting Project

Wanted to send a note of appreciation re my recent painting project. The whole process was seemlessly handled. Mr Williams offered suggestions and promptly provided an estimate. Amy, the receptionist, courteously handled the scheduling of the project, arrival times, and billing questions. Adolberto Ferrafino and Rodrigo arrived as scheduled, and with a minimum of household disruption and mess performed a "face-lift" on my living room. The plaster repair and new paint gave the room a whole new look. I am very pleased, and plan to use Williams for painting projects I may have in the future-perhaps an exterior paint project in the spring. Thanks much.
