College Park MD Exterior Painting Company

Here in College Park, there are a lot of exterior painting companies you can choose from. A quick online search for "College Park house painters" can give you way more results than you know what to do with! How do you narrow down your options? How do you recognize a good exterior painting contractor when you find one?

There are many factors that you can use when comparing house painters, but there are a few things that are most important: trustworthiness, value, and customer service. Let's take a look at those characteristics individually.

Finding a Trustworthy Local House Painter

From time to time we hear nightmare stories about house painters who take a deposit and then disappear with the money, never returning to finish (or sometimes even to start) the job. Other people find a company that shows up and does the job, but if there is a mistake or a problem, the company is nowhere to be found. How do you avoid this? How do you get an exterior painting company in College Park that you can trust?

One thing you can look for is how long the company has been in business. A company that has been in business for several decades is going to be stable and easy to get in contact with. They are invested in the College Park community, and they are not likely to disappear when a problem arises. Likewise, a family-owned business will want to maintain a positive reputation in the community, so you can rely on them for honesty and trustworthiness.

Additionally, you should ask about a local painter's licensing and insurance. Your exterior painters should be able to show you proof of local and state licensing, plus a policy for liability insurance and worker's compensation insurance.

What Is the Best Value in Exterior House Painting?

Most of us have learned the hard way that the lowest price is often not the best value. Just like a car or appliance with cheap plastic parts is likely to break soon, a cheap paint job might have less value than one with better quality.

A high quality exterior paint job will look much better and last far longer than a budget job. The superior protection it offers, plus the longer time between paint jobs, means that you actually get more value from the quality painting, even though the cost is higher.

Why does a more expensive paint job perform better? Some of the reason is that the exterior painters take more time to properly clean and prepare the surfaces, ensuring better paint adhesion and longer life. Additionally, a quality house painter will use premium paints, which have more of the key ingredients, giving better endurance against the elements. Finally, a good house painter will generally apply more than one coat of paint, which significantly extends the life of the paint job.

Customer Service in Exterior Painting

National brands provide you with a well-known name, but what they lack is personalized service. Their corporate model is driven by a high volume of sales, and they are not particularly interested in earning long-term customers. A locally-owned company, in contrast, lives and works in your community. As mentioned above, they are invested in College Park, and they are highly motivated to develop good relationships. They want customers for life!

This kind of family-owned, locally-operated painting company is far more likely to give you the personalized, attentive, reliable service you desire.

Our Happy Customers

Very Thorough

I wanted to drop you a note to inform you that Jose G. and Ricardo did an excellent job painting the exterior of our townhouse. Both were very prompt being on time, if not a little early. They made our house look very well manicured. I was pleased that after every detail, they wanted our satisfaction. Very thorough in all aspects of the job, from the prep work to painting. Not to mention they both were very neat and so courteous. We will be sure to recommend Williams Professional Painting to any of our friends and neighbors.

Sincerely,
D.B and J.N. from Cameron Station in Alexandria, VA

The quality of the workmanship.

We just had our beautiful historic townhouse painted by Dave with Juan Maldonado as our foreman. The house is absolutely beautiful. The quality of the workmanship, customer service, and professionalism was exceptional. Thank you Dave, Juan and your crew for restoring this beautiful building to its glory. You are truly the best.

Alvis conveyed to us everything that we needed to know.

The job was to remove wall paper from the kitchen, dining room and hallway and prime and paint those rooms, and the living room, stairway to the top floor and the upper hallway, including trim and doors. They also painted the railings in the dining room and stairway. Their project manager, Alvis Hermes, provided extensive consultations and advice regarding color and type of paint. He listened carefully to our objectives and patiently worked with us, offering continual advice throughout the project. He also referred us to Janeen Braddock, an experienced color consultant at Benjamin Moore Paints who provided invaluable advice and samples that helped us to make the final paint choices, with which we are so pleased.

Member Comments:

When we decided to paint the rooms on the main floor of our town house and contacted several painting companies, it became immediately clear to us, after meeting with Alvis Hermes, that we would choose Williams Professional Painting. As their representative, Alvis conveyed to us everything that we needed to know and was so reassuring and easy to converse with. During the entire painting process, he always returned our calls and emails promptly and courteously. Choosing Williams Professional Painting was the best decision ever. We wrote to Alvis and to the owner of the company, thanking Alvis for his guidance and patience throughout the process and for referring us to Janeen Braddock, whose consultations were so valuable in helping us to decide among so many lovely Benjamin Moore colors. She drove out here in heavy snow bringing new paint samples, to make sure that we could finalize our paint choices with confidence. Amazing!
We can\'t begin to say how pleased we are with the beautiful job that the painters, Jose, Omar and Ricardo, did. They were very professional, punctual and responsive to all our questions. We were surprised to find two layers of wall paper in the kitchen. They did a remarkable job of removing them, despite the considerable difficulty this job entailed. Our painters worked steadily and systematically until the surface was beautifully prepared for the new paint. Throughout the whole painting process, our painters remained cheerful, accommodating, respectful of our needs and were very neat as they worked and during cleanup.
We are so happy and excited with the results, as the rooms look exactly as we want them to be. We get so much pleasure each time we come downstairs to see our beautiful, bright rooms. After seeing the great results, we definitely intend to use Williams Professional Painting to complete the process for our upstairs level and lower level family room. We also intend to recommend this company to our neighbors and to our townhouse development\'s corporate office, with the greatest confidence. Congratulations to Williams Professional Painting on a job well done!

However, it was Juan Maldonado who brought distinction and excellence to the finished product.

I wish to commend your firm for the outstanding painting of our family room. We were impressed with the technical skills and knowledge of all personnel involved in the project and their respect for our home and its belongings. We were also impressed with your firm’s flexibility and cooperation to meet our wishes with regard to the color scheme. The manner in which your firm handled this project clearly demonstrated a genuine commitment to customer satisfaction.

The preparation and painting of our family room was no easy task as the room is quite spacious with 22 foot ceiling. Your painters did their tasks in a correct, professional manner. However, it was Juan Maldonado who brought distinction and excellence to the finished product.

Throughout the entire project, Juan was cordial and very responsive to the comments and concerns of the homeowners. He answered all our questions, and kept us well informed of the work\'s progress. He was exceptionally reliable, always starting work when he said he would and following up his verbal commitments with substantive action.

Juan’s constructive advice, technical proficiency, and overall friendly demeanor made him a pleasure to work with and to have in our home. But what impressed us the most was the caliber and quality of his finished product. It was beyond what we had hoped for and we are very proud to have such superb handiwork as the center piece of our home.

We also want to commend Lisa Reyes for her advice on the color scheme and repeated visits to our home to ensure all was going well.

Again, we thank Williams Painting for such high quality customer service. Your firm’s management, staff, and painting crews have a work ethic and customer oriented attitude that will never go out of style.

Interior Professional Painting Alexandria, Virginia

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.

Very Professional

I thought that the Foreman and Painter were very professional and thorough. They didn't even blanch at the last minute change in color and still got the job done in the two days allotted. Great job!

Thanks,

A Very Huge Thanks To Your Team

A very huge thanks to your team who did a WONDERFUL job today! I was so thrilled to come home and see the beautiful job - even better than I had hoped. Everything looks perfect and the place was immaculately clean behind them.

I truly appreciate you making the arrangements to double up the team so that they could get the job done today. It is an enormous help to have this done before the weekend and before the holidays hit.

A big, big thanks again to you and Christian and all of your team!

He has always, and continues to be, the ultimate professional.

Dave,

Just a quick note re: Juan.

I have had occasion to interact with him a total of 5 or 6 times, he has always, and continues to be, the ultimate professional.

Allow me to recap, your email stated he would arrive between 0730 and 0800 and sure enough at 0745 he was at the house. Once at the house he accessed the situation with the doors quickly and quickly implemented a fix, after noticing that the proposed solution would not work, he recommended other solutions but, from my point of view, always balancing the professional outcome with the cost/level of effort that would be required.

I have verbally stated this before, but your crews have NEVER disappointed me, I am very comfortable with Williams Professional Painting in my property, and look forward to a continued business relationship.

Very Respectfully,
Ary Rodriguez

They were prompt and highly competent.

We had WPP come out and redo our bathroom, paint, install vanity etc They were prompt and highly competent. Their work was excellent and prices very competitive. We had Ricardo and Salas-Jaime....we would highly recommend.


T.D.

He was extremely responsible.

Dave,

We wanted to write to let you know what an excellent carpentry job Jorge did at our house on Wednesday Feb.26. He was extremely responsible and left the job site in perfect condition. Another great job by Williams Professional Painting.

Williams’ painters kept the workplace immaculate!

I can’t say enough about the care and attention to detail that Ricardo Salas and Enriquez provided in repainting a dozen old, peeling 6 over 6 wooden window frames on my home that were down to bare wood in places. I am confident that my 1941 windows are in good shape for many years to come. Williams’ painters kept the workplace immaculate and as a bonus they were great dog-watchers! I was able to let my dogs out the backyard while I was at work, because they were careful to close gates as they went back and forth so no escapes occurred. They treated my property as if it were their own.

...treated our house as if it were their own.

Rick,

Sandy and I want to let you know how happy we are with the painting your team completed recently on our home.

Walter and his team were incredibly professional and polite, and treated our house as if it were their own. They seemed to take as much pride and pleasure from its' appearance as we did. We are especially happy with the copper paint used on the porch roof.

In short the house looks almost new with the trim repairs, replacements, and fresh paint.

We would be happy to serve as references for you should the need arise.

Again many thanks to the entire Williams team, and especially Walter Osegueda.

Sincerely


The Grimes

Your employees are absolutely superb!!

Dear Milton:

I hope this email finds you well and that you are recovering from the nasty flu.

Joe and I would like to express our appreciation for the excellent service we received from Williams Professional Painting for the paint job at our residence that started last Monday and it was completed today.

Your employees are absolutely superb!! We certainly appreciated their knowledge, dedication, and hard work. Their efforts to finish the job today went beyond the call of duty. Despite the fact that they started very late today due to my medical appointment, they were determined to finish today and they did, even though they had to work until 7 pm in the evening.

We were highly impressed by their expertise, deep sense of responsibility, and dedication to their work. Despite having to work during one of the coldest week of the season and having to go back and forth to their truck to get stuff, they portrayed at all times a very gracious and pleasant disposition, professional demeanor, and willingness to do a job well done. How very lucky Williams Professional Painting is to count Dagoberto and Eliazar as members of the staff. Employees of their caliber are very difficult to find. They delivered a service for us in a way that one only expects from truly professional people.

Milton, please share with them this letter and please convey to them once again our appreciation.

Thank you again Dago and Eliazar. We want you to know how much we appreciated your hard work. You are truly remarkable. Your dedication to your work is admirable, and your sense of responsibility is very commendable.

To everybody at Williams Professional Painting, please accept our very best wishes for the successful continuation of your work.

Most sincerely,
O. S.
