Exterior House Painting in Annandale, Virginia

How does exterior house painting compare to painting in the world of fine art? There are definitely some overlaps. Both of them take skill, knowledge, dedication, attention to detail, and experience. On the other hand, the master painters of the art world do have some undeniable skills that we don't see in residential painting. Still, is that a bad thing? After all, do we really want our house painters cutting off their own ears?!

When you choose a house painter for your Annandale home, you are not looking for a Degas or a da Vinci, but you do desire someone who is reliable, professional, and dedicated to excellence. How do you find such a house painter? Here are three tips for finding the best local painters in the Annandale area.

#1: Get Trusted Reviews

These days, most Annandale residents practically live online, so our first action in looking for a painting company is to ask Siri or Google. Digging just a little deeper, we can find lots of reviews, and this is a great place to start. Don't just look at the number of stars, however. Read reviews from actual customers. As you do, listen for voices that seem reasonable, and consider their experiences. You can find helpful reviews on Google, Yelp, Angie's List, HomeAdvisor, and many other sources.

Also, talk to your neighbors and friends here in the Annandale region. Find out what their experiences with painters have been like, and ask whom they would recommend. Nothing beats a personal referral!

#2: Compare Multiple Estimates

Once you have obtained a list of reputable Annandale exterior house painters, choose three or four to get a free estimate from. Do not judge the estimates just on the price. Rather, compare the details, to see what kind of value each painting company offers.

For example, look at the level of surface preparation, the number of coats of paint, the quality of the paint, and similar details. Generally, a painting company that does excellent work gives you the best value, even if they are not the cheapest.

#3: Compare the Professionalism

As you receive estimates for your exterior painting, consider the professionalism of each painting company. Do they arrive on time? Do they communicate proactively and politely? Do they have company vehicles and tidy uniforms? Is the estimate on company letterhead? Do they offer a guarantee on their work? Are they licensed and insured in Virginia?

All of these factors give you important clues as to the professionalism and reliability of your Annandale exterior painting company.

Another great job done!

We had Williams paint the entire inside of the house back in 2010. That job was excellent. We were very apprehensive about having to move everything and the disruption, but the Williams crew made it as painless as possible. They even painted AFTER we had white carpet installed and not a drop touched the carpet!

So when it was time to get some outside work done, we naturally turned to Williams. This painting involved foundation, soffits, windows, porch, and staining the porch floor.

The crew (Jorge and Rodrigo, with Joyner the second day) were great. They were professional and courteous, showed up when expected, took great care when coming inside for the window work (white carpets!), worked efficiently, got the work done on the low side of the time estimate.

Williams is very good about scheduling work and keeping their schedule commitments. They are not "cheap painters" and you really get value for what you pay. Dave Williams and the office staff are easy to work with.

The quality of the painting looks great and we would definitely use Williams again.

In fact, our next door neighbor just talked to me about the company, having watched the crew at work, and will likely be in touch for some work next spring.

JB made it important to him.

I would like to commend JB, he was great. Our job was small but it was important to us and JB made it important to him. He knew we were not satisfied with one particular aspect of the finished job and after talking to us about several options, he came back and proceeded with the decided upon option and it turned out perfect. He was always polite and professional and willing to go that extra bit to make sure we were satisfied.

Kudos to Williams Professional Painting to hiring such an outstanding tradesman and thank you JB!

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.

Williams Professional Painting

Carlos was the crew leader when I had my newly purchased condo painted in July. I know Edison worked several days but I do not know the name of any of the other workers. I had the walls, ceiling, trim & doors, and kitchen & bathroom cabinets painted as well as new hinges and hardware installed on all the cabinets. Plus Williams Prof Painting removed a big ugly mirror, repaired the drywall and installed crown molding in the living room, dining room and hall way. All this was going on at the same time I had hardwood floors installed. I was on a very tight time frame and Carlos did yeoman’s duty keeping the job moving along and keeping me informed every step of the way. There were a few really minor, minor hiccups…to be expected when you have this much activity going on in a small space. Carlos worked until after 7 PM the night before I moved in. Did I mention it was the hottest week of the year and the A/C stopped working? All of this was done with no sacrifice in quality.

I was so pleased with the work of Carlos and Edison that I requested either of them when I hired Williams Prof Painting to do some minor ceiling drywall repair and painting touch-up after I changed out a kitchen ceiling light fixture in September.

The prices for the whole condo job and the small kitchen ceiling repair job were exactly what was quoted. The crown molding was time and material and the final price for the crown molding was within $100 of the verbal ballpark range the estimator gave me. No additions and no surprises.

William Professional Painting is not the low price contractor but the price is very competitive for the quality of work performed. I will ask for Carlos or Edison at Williams Professional Painting any time I need painting or professional carpentry/drywall repairs.

You must be very proud to have them on your staff.

Your team supplied wonderful service to us in painting seven rooms, foyer, and two level central hallway --- two coats and stripping a wall of four decade old wallpaper, all in record time. They were inevitably cheerful, helpful in moving some heavy furniture, and always punctual. What a pleasure to work with them, a real credit to Williams Professional Painting. You must be very proud to have them on your staff. Best wishes,

A Review for a Flawless Job!

These guys are simply the best. They did work all over the house, recaulking a tub, dealing with water damage, rebuilding a ceiling over two attached rooms - i.e. not a terribly simple or quick job. They took their time, worried about the details, and ended up doing a flawless Job. Cristian, the Foreman, was lovely, touching base at the beginning and end of each day, staying on top of everything. I would use these guys again and again.

Thank you.

Juan did a fantastic job.

Your guys did an excellent job as always. Thanks again. Have attached a photo of the vanity- Juan did a fantastic job. I'll be sure to write a couple of reviews online.

The difference in before and after is noticed by everyone.

To whom it may concern:

On March 12 and 13, 2014, two of your employees, Juan Maldonado and Jose O, came to our house in McLean, VA and did our interior painting. They painted and refurbished out master bedroom and the family room/eating area/kitchen. We are 100% pleased with the job they did. The difference in before and after is noticed by everyone who steps into our family area and certainly by us when we are in the bedroom.

We want to let your company know that Juan and Jose were efficient and did an excellent job. Additionally, they were polite and anxious to do whatever we asked of them. We will recommend your company to anyone who needs interior or exterior painting because of the positive experience that we had with Juan and Jose.

A review for Ricardo Salas and Edison for their work

Good evening:

I'm writing to provide a review for Ricardo Salas and Edison for their work at Cameron Mills Rd.

We had a great experience with both Williams Professional Painting and Ricardo and Edison. First off, the estimate process was so much easier and straight forward than I expected. It was easy to schedule a time on the weekend to get an estimate and Dave showed up ready to answer any of my questions and was more than willing to provide information. He also responded to my emails etc. promptly, making it painless to schedule and move forward with the project. This is a very different experience than with other contractors we have attempted to work with. We also had the pleasure of using the company's free design services at their office location. It made picking a color far more enjoyable than going to a crowded Home Depot and the advice was very valuable.

Second, Ricardo and Edison's work was fantastic. They showed up right on time, covered all the walkways, protected the furniture, and worked efficiently. Ricardo ended up doing 2 out of the 3 days of work by himself, and we had the same experience. He showed up right on time, making it easy for me to ask any questions I had before I had to head off to work, and was very respectful of our home. The paint job is beautiful and my house was left clean and undamaged. I would be happy to work with Ricardo again in the future and would certainly recommend Williams Professional Painting to others.

Thank you

They did an excellent job! They had a "can do" attitude and made sure everything was perfect.

Interior painting of rooms, walls, ceilings, etc. over a three week period. I had a lot of work to be done. They repaired ceilings, installed doors, removed all existing paneling and molding, installed drywall to walls, installed new molding and trim. They did an excellent job! They had a "can do" attitude and made sure everything was perfect. They were punctual, friendly, professional, accommodating, courteous, very respectful of our home and of us. The team, employer and staff were a pleasure to do business with. I will be using them for another project next month. I am thrilled to have found them and will recommend them to all of my friends and colleagues without hesitation.

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.

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

You Can't Beat Good Customer Service

Alvis (the estimator) was prompt and responsive. We purchased the house in July, and requested costs for the above work, as well as potentially additional work (painting the living room, and painting the in-law suite in the basement). He broke down the costs for each section, allowing us to pick which work we wanted done. They also were very helpful in coming out to paint the window trim in one room that we needed painted before installing new blinds.

The onsite crew looked at the areas to be painted with us before proceeding. They were prompt in arrival times, and completed the work within the estimated time frame. There were a few drips onto the radiators that I found months after the painting (so obviously not reported to the company as it took me so long to find them!). But other than that, they did a really great job, and it\'s held up nicely so far.

I Am Thrilled With The Result!

Jorge and Jaime did an excellent job. They were professional, polite, clean, organized, efficient, arrived on time, kept me informed on what they were doing, were considerate of my husband and me, and were extremely careful with our furniture, paintings, and decorative items. They obviously love their work, love working for Williams Professional Painting, and take great pride in a job well done. Because the previous painters had painted onto the baseboard in some areas, Jorge asked if I had the paint for the woodwork so he could correct that. The line where the wall meets the baseboard is now perfectly straight. They vacuumed and cleaned up two different times and I think my house was cleaner when they left than before. I am thrilled with the result!

I will be in touch with your office when I am ready to have the other bedroom painted.

Thank you so much, Dave, I really do appreciate how professional you are and the obvious pride you take in your work and your business. I take every opportunity to sing your praises.


B.H.
