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

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!

Williams Professional Painting

I wanted to let you know that Walter and Caesar were awesome when they came by to paint our 4th Floor space. They were friendly and knew exactly what they were doing. Their attention to detail in both painting and keeping the area clean and tidy did not go unnoticed. Thanks for sending us such a great pair of guys.

Thanks

Your Team Is Amazing!!!!

Rick,

Thanks so much....and can I say what a pleasure it is to work with Williams and especially this crew. Jose is a keeper!!!!!! I have had major issues with our flooring contractor this week in another part of the building. It was such a dramatic comparison between their work ethic and quality as compared to what was going on in the Vestry. Your team is amazing!!!!!!!! (I actually just sent the other sub packing and insisted that another crew be provided for next week.)

LOVE WILLIAMS PAINTING!!!!!!!!!

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.

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

Outstanding Interior Painting

This email is to express my appreciation for the outstanding interior painting job by Williams Professional Painting.

As the name of your company implies, Luis and Edwin did a very professional job. A I previously mentioned, their wall preparation, painting skills, cleanup, and furniture/wall hangings replacement were very impressive. Luis' knowledge of complicated electronic wiring for audio and video equipment allowed him to perfectly restore all of my entertainment stuff. Equally important is that Luis and Edwin are genuinely great guys.

In closing, let me thank you and the administrative staff for your support.

Sincerely,


J.P.

Excellent Job

Adalberto and his assistants did an excellent job painting the windows and exterior trim, plus interior repairs at my house. They were dependable, arriving each day at the scheduled time and finishing each afternoon at a convenient hour. Adelberto was very amenable to requests for even minor details, did all work in a beautiful manner, and cleaned up completely each day. I have used Williams Painters in the past with great satisfaction, and will certainly use them again.


Alex Eckmann

We appreciate the care and time everyone is taking.

Hi Milton,

We wanted to let you know that we are very pleased with the painting work done so far by Ricardo Salas and the crew working with him. The exterior painting of the house is progressing well—it is a “big” old house and we appreciate the care and time everyone is taking to prepare and paint it in the best way possible. Ricardo and the crew always arrive by 7:30 am (most times earlier) to begin the job and they work steadily throughout the day until quitting time. Everyone is very courteous and professional.

The bedroom painting job is now completed. Again Ricardo and his crew did a very good job. Noe made sure that the cut-in line between the ceiling and wall colors was straight because he wanted everything to be done right.

When everything is finished we will send in a review. Right now we wanted to let you know that your foreman, Ricardo Salas, and his painting crew are doing a good job. Our neighbors have given us positive comments about the colors we selected. The house will look very distinctive once completed and will be an example of the quality of your workmanship.

Thank you.

Professional and Superior

Williams Professional Painting is just that-professional and superior in every aspect. Dave Williams visited our house and provided the proposal for exterior painting. They started exactly when they said they would-fortunately the weather cooperated. The crew, Cristian and Santos, were experienced, excellent painters and very neat cleaning up at the end of each day. I highly recommend Williams Professional Painting.

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!

Your team was very professional and responsible.

Rick – I wanted to thank you and your team for the fine work that they did on the exterior and interior of my home. I am very pleased with the work, and I am happy that I used your firm. I plan to replace the set of wooden steps at my home’s back entrance sometime in the next year or so, and when I do, I will certainly contact Williams about an estimate. Your team was very professional and responsible, and I would be happy to have them work on my home again.

Regards - Deb

Once again a great experience working with Juan and Noel

We have used Williams Professional Painting for years and been very happy. Juan has come to our house at least twice and always displays a professional but friendly attitude. Our house has always been left clean and orderly. Yesterday, his helper included Noel who corrected many of the stains and problems with our ceiling. They arrived exactly on time too which is hard to do in this area's busy traffic. Thank you both for doing a great job and making it an easy experience once again.

Response: Thank you for your comments. we are very fortunate to have Juan and Noel working with us. We are glad you are happy and look forward to working with you again in the future
