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 %
  • What preparation is done as part of the paint job ? Contact Us

A Very Happy Client

Hello,

I just wanted to let you know that my husband and I could not be more pleased with our experience with Williams Professional Painting. First, despite a small mix-up in the scheduling, Yanize was very kind, professional and understanding, and she immediately put me at ease and was able to very quickly resolve the issue (and I was so relieved that Williams was able to work within my scheduling needs). The interior painting work itself was beautifully done, and the painting team, Dagoberto and Carlos (along with Franklin on the first day) were professional, skilled, courteous and considerate. They arrived right on time each day and worked very hard, producing beautifully painted rooms. I felt very much at ease with them in our house and appreciated the attention to detail of their work. They really went above and beyond in their painting work, even patching up an extra small area that had some scratches. This was very generous and really stands out in my mind. They also worked hard cleaning up all of the painting materials and dust afterwards. In short, our experience with Williams was a wholly positive one, and I would not hesitate to use Williams again and will be recommending you to others. Thank you for making our home beautiful, and for making the process as easy and painless as possible.

(I should also mention that we enjoyed working with Jose, our estimator, who was also very professional and responsive, and I appreciated his advice on painting needs for our home.)

And again, I really can't say enough about how pleased we are with the work of Dagoberto and Carlos, and the whole Williams team. Thank you again!

(I will also be placing reviews on Angie's List and Yelp.)

When Sandy reached out for help with creating a new home office, we were excited to lend a hand. She had a fantastic space that just needed to be creatively reconfigured.

A Review from Washington, DC

Ricardo and Cesar were fantastic. Prompt, professional, and kept me informed at every step. Please let their manager know.


J.K

Very responsive in their communication with us.

They provided an accurate estimate, purchased paint and other supplies, painted about 3/4 of the rooms in our house, moved all furniture and replaced everything as they found it, cleaned up and were very responsive in their communication with us.

Hi Alvis. I just wanted to thank you for your help. Carlos S. came to my house yesterday to do the work we talked about earlier. I loved him. He was such a nice person and very professional throughout the entire process. I really appreciated the way he explained everything to me and did all the work so carefully. I felt very fortunate that Carlos was assigned to my project. I will request him for my next project too. And I have many more things on the list. Thanks, Alvis.

It was a pleasure to work with Jorge and Juan as they went about the task of improving our building. They did a great job, were attentive to our wishes, and cleaned up nicely every day. They represent you well.

Interior Quality Painting Fairfax Virginia

Dear Rick,

This is a long overdue comment regarding the services Williams Professional Painting provided in painting our home in Fairfax.

First of all it was a pleasure to work with you, Rick, on the estimate, and we felt the price you quoted us was very reasonable for the scope of the job.

I lost the card your painters gave me in the chaos of packing the house – so unfortunately I don’t remember their names, but they were great and I would be happy to have

them in our home again!

The painters were here each day well before the time to start. They were extremely courteous, and usually they left things cleaner than they found them.

We were in chaos trying to prepare for moving, but they were very accommodating; letting me know I got to choose which room they would work on on any given day

so I could stay one room ahead of them clearing out clutter.

As for the quality of the painting it was very good!

I have recommended Williams to our Realtor and if we were staying in the area and needed painting again I would not hesitate to use Williams.

Thank you so much for your excellent service!

A Review from a returning client.

Dear Williams Professional Painting,

This is my second time to call on Williams for painting at my condo. I researched carefully the first time and chose Williams due to the many wonderful personal endorsements and the recommendations by professional publications/institutions.

Just like the first time, the job was very professional from the person who came to do the estimate to the painters who actually did the job---Ricardo Salas and Cristian. They painted my bedroom--walls, trim, ceiling and patched a corner wall in the living room -- everything looks great --a very professional job. And, other than the beautiful new bedroom I have and the smell of new paint I would not even know they had been in my house.

Thank you all for the wonderful work you do.

Regards,


R.W

We wish again to bring to your attention the excellent work done by Juan Maldonado.

Rick:

We wish again to bring to your attention the excellent work done by Juan Maldonado with the painting of one of our bedroom, walk-in closets and exterior carpentry work.Although both jobs were small in scope, Juan completed them with the same attention to detail and technical proficiency as he demonstrated when he painted our Family Room.

He effectively and rapidly adjusted to all unplanned occurrences and without complaint.He consistently exhibited the traits associated with a true professional in his field and a sincere commitment to achieving customer satisfaction.

A Happy Client.

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.

Thank you!
