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.

Alberto and Omar did a wonderful job painting my kitchen

Just to let you know that Alberto and Omar did a wonderful job painting my kitchen. It looks really beautiful. They were totally professional and extremely pleasant and I appreciate the fact that you sent Omar to help after the mix-up regarding scheduling this job. Thanks again for your help and I'll be in touch regarding some work to do in the basement.

The crews were always eager to be sure that the customer was happy with all their work

We needed repairs to drywall and also some carpentry after water damage to our townhouse first floor. Due to insurance delays and issues, the work ended up being done in "spurts" instead of all at once.

Even though we had many delays and stops and starts, WPP were always cheerful to respond and did the work professionally. The crews were always eager to be sure that the customer was happy with all their work. We had a challenging job because our townhouse is over 50 years old, but this was no problem for WPP. The price initially quoted by WPP may be higher than others, but, they seem to build in enough contingency in their fee so that if you encounter any bumps in the road, they have "no problem" responding. That is not true with other painting contractors in our experience. Also, the billing office and owners are available if you have questions and are happy to discuss options or any concerns you might run into. Everyone at WPP was a pleasure to work with. Rare these days!

A Review on a Recent Painting Project

Wanted to send a note of appreciation re my recent painting project. The whole process was seamlessly 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.

A Superior Operation

"A superior operation. On the expensive side, but worth it for us."

Well done, Juan!

" I want to complement Juan Maldonado for his outstanding craftsmanship and professionalism while installing a back splash in our kitchen. It will certainly add value and brighten the appearance of our home. Thank you"


Mr. T.

We have always been pleased with Williams Painting

Hi,

This week Juan completed several painting projects around our house and did a wonderful job.He was prompt, neat, and very detailed.The front stoop and trim that were repaired and painted look new (as new as a 180 year old house looks).Most impressive was the back gate.He took perfect measurements of the old rotten gate, built a new one, installed it using our historic hardware and painted it.All in an efficient and precise manner.We have always been pleased with Williams Painting and will continue to use them going forward.

Best,


J.S

A Review for Williams Professional Painting

I'm happy with the job and appreciate the professionalism of all involved.


B.R

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.


L.G.

The person conducting the estimating work ( Alvis) was extremely professional and knowledgable.

Description Of Work: Painted living room wall and baseboard, den walls, ceiling, baseboards and fixed stains and cracks, dining room baseboard as well as complete foyer where there were cracks and leak marks.
Member Comments:
The person conducting the estimating work ( Alvis) was extremely professional and knowledgable. He was friendly, exactly on time and very responsive in providing the bid. We obtained two bids and while the other was lower we wanted to assure excellent work and since the estimator was able to fully explain why paint that had been put on our front door in the past did not stick (first person to be able to diagnose the problem) we decided that this and their current reputation on Angie's list coupled with their years in service meant that the higher price would likely be worth it - and it was.
The painters arrived on time, were careful to properly move and cover furniture and other items, carefully laid tape to block off areas NOT to be painted and completed the job fully in two days as projected. They were helpful - having a larger crew come the first day to help move some heavy items and the scheduling person readjusted the initial scheduled time as our floor project ran over. The foreman throughout remained in communication on issues and was very responsive to any request I had. Cristian Reyes was the foreman and excellent.
The cost may be higher but I gave it an A as it is worth the money.

Thank you very much for such good service!

We were very happy with the work done by Williams Professional Painting and the crew who worked at our house. They were very careful and thorough. I appreciated that they made sure all the windows opened and locked after they finished. Bryan and Daniel (and Edwin earlier) were great! They kept us well-informed about their progress and discussed options at various decision points. I've already recommended your company to two families - and will continue to do that if anyone's looking for this type of service. I also appreciated the way the office kept us informed as we went through all the delays due to rain, and the fact that Milton came by to check on progress and consult on an issue that arose.

Thank you very much for such good service!

Best regards,

"I Cannot Say Enough Good Things About Williams Professional Painting..."

I cannot say enough good things about Williams Professional Painting. The painters were punctual, polite, and they are excellent painters. They did extensive preparation, they cleaned as they went, they did a super job, and then left every place they painted spotless. I will be having them back in a few weeks to paint bathrooms. I will always use Williams Professional Painting when I have painting to do.

An Exterior Painting Project

I had Ricardo, Salas and Cesar plus a couple of other guys work on my son's house. They did an excellent job and worked very hard throughout the project. The foreman(Ricardo, I think) kept me abreast of the progress throughout while I was at the house. The paint job is excellent.

Jose and I did not communicate well during the estimation process. The estimate that I received was not the total amount (excluding additional carpentry work needed) I expected it to be. I was shocked when I saw the final bill. The terms of agreement also showed that I would receive two coats and I did not. I was told that was only true for the pvc boards and door, that the paint was so good in covering that I did not need two coats. When I asked the foreman(Ricardo, I think) about painting the mullions he said they normally do not do those. I told him to call Jose and Jose confirmed that they would be done. So, the job was excellent but the estimation process did not go well. I'm sorry about this because Jose is a very nice guy and I enjoyed working with him, and he was concerned and respectful. I was told that Williams would replace two facial boards that go on the roof area free of cost. Thank you very much.

Overall, what is most important is that you did a great job and treated me respectfully and the job diligently. I hope the same can be said for me.

Please take special note that all the painters on my job worked hard and diligently throughout.

Thank you.

Ricardo and his team were all that I expected from Williams PP

We had Williams PP back to paint a bedroom that had been treated roughly for over 10 years. Ricardo and his team were all that I expected from Williams PP: timely, professional, and courteous. The room is gorgeous! Thanks for another quality job done beautifully and efficiently.

Response: Thank you for the review. Glad you were happy and we look forward to working with you again in the future
