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.

  • 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.

Ricardo was excellent. On time, polite, professional and did a great job. He checked the whole exterior and did a couple of other repairs besides the one I had called about.

I'll be sure to recommend this company and the services of Rick and Bryan to all of my friends.

I cold called Williams Professional Painting while searching for painters for my new condo in DC to obtain a quote. I was able to promptly talk to Rick Williams on the phone and he was extremely responsive and reasonable. I told him I recently purchased a condo and wanted to repaint everything prior to moving in. He sent an estimator out to my condo. The estimator, Jose, showed up on time and was extremely courteous, even removed his shoes prior to entering my condo. He took measurements of the rooms and recommended different types of paints for the rooms. I discussed with Rick that I needed the job done in two days and he said it wouldn't be a problem. His crew led by foreman Bryan arrived on time and was also extremely courteous and professional. Their #1 priority seems to be getting the job done correctly. Some of my paint colors were rather dark for accent walls and although my contract said 2 coats of paint, Bryan used 3 coats to ensure that the accent walls were painted properly.

Rick's team kept their word and finished my project in 2 days, even though it required bringing in a few extra painters, they still did not lapse their deadline. In the end, I am glad I hired Williams Professional Painting and did not take on this task myself or hire hourly help to assist me to paint. I'll be sure to recommend this company and the services of Rick and Bryan to all of my friends.

Dagoberto Madrado (sp?) and Pablo tackled repainting the interior of my home. I was impressed by the way they scoped out the job and the way they chose to tackle it. And, tackle it they did with professionalism and skill, all the while touching base even on such minor details such as whether I wanted to rehang pictures where they were. It I was especially impressed with the care they took in prep work, which, no doubt, made the final result excellent. After each day, Dagoberto would ask me to take a careful look at their work and give him feedback. They were especially careful about making sure furniture was appropriately moved and put back. Both Dagoberto and Pablo are truly an asset to Williams Brothers. This was the second time I’ve engaged Williams Brothers, and on both occasions the result was outstanding. The attention to detail Dagoberto and Pablo gave to my home was outstanding. They should be proud of the result as I am pleased by it.

Hello,

We are writing to express our thanks to Dagobarto for doing such a wonderful job painting the room we plan to use as a nursery for our new baby.

The prior paint job was not great and he did a fantastic job putting on the new color and trim, as well as cleaning up the mess that was already there. He was prompt, attentive, and professional and my husband and could not be happier with the results. The nursery looks fantastic.

Thanks again and we will certainly consider your company for paint work, and of course recommend your business to others we know.

Thanks,

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.

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.

Professional Interior Painting In Alexandria, Virginia

Ricardo and Pablo painted my master bedroom suite consisting of the bedroom, bathroom, and 2 walk-in closets. Ricardo was the foreman on a job in our house last year and he did a wonderful job; they did the whole basement. Because he did such a good job we requested him by name to do our master suite. Again, he did not disappointment us. The finished work is perfect, he does the best cut-in of any painter I have seen. My wife and I are both Realtors here, we see a lot of houses, and the quality of Ricardo's work is far better than most homes we see. He is courteous, respectful, works hard, takes extreme pride in his work, has a great attitude, is punctual and precise in his work. Clone him!!!

I copied my wife on the email so she can see the comments.

Warm Regards,

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!

Williams painted four rooms in our home, the entryway, and stairs. They also repaired plaster ceilings and walls and assisted with paint color selection.

We had a great experience. The estimator (Alvis) was efficient and knowledgeable. The designer (Lisa) who helped us pick colors was skilled at putting together color combinations that looked good and matched our tastes. The painters/plasterers (Santos and Carlos) did an exceptional job to make our home look like new. I even had a chance to meet Mr. Williams who was very professional and down to earth. My only (very minor) critique would be that the cleanup after the job was finished could have been a touch better.

Another Satisfied Client in Alexandria, VA

Thanks for a beautiful job. Also for the little extra favors like changing light bulbs in high places, power washing surrounding horizontal surfaces, trimming an overhanging branch & a little extra caulk where it was really needed.


R.L

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.

I had a third-story gutter that was drip-leaking over my deck. I would like to commend Juan Maldonado and his helper for inspecting, ascertaining the problem, and rectifying it. He reviewed the problem, recommended the fix, and after the go-ahead, proceeded to implement it.

It will take another hard rainfall to determine if the repair eliminated the issue completely, but the measures taken by Mr. Maldonado and his crew were well-thought out from his experience, and executed very professionally.

Thanks,
