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.

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.

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.

We had a great experience

We had a great experience using Williams Professional Painting. We live in an older home where the drywall frequently experiences seasonal cracks. We hired the company to repair the drywall. The quote process was very quick and professional. We were able to schedule the work in accordance with our schedule. Mr. Ricardo Salas performed the work. He arrived promptly at the appointed time, provided an overview of what he would be doing, and got right to work. We were very pleased with the end product – smooth walls where you couldn’t tell that any repairs had been done! We will certainly keep Williams Painting in mind for any future work.

We wish again to bring to your attention the excellent work done by Juan Maldonado.

Rick:

We wish again to bring to your attention the excellent work done by Juan Maldonado with the painting of one of our bedroom, walk-in closets and exterior carpentry work.Although both jobs were small in scope, Juan completed them with the same attention to detail and technical proficiency as he demonstrated when he painted our Family Room.

He effectively and rapidly adjusted to all unplanned occurrences and without complaint.He consistently exhibited the traits associated with a true professional in his field and a sincere commitment to achieving customer satisfaction.

A Review for an outstanding job.

The Finished Job Is Excellent

Milton of Williams Painting contacted me quickly after I requested an estimate and arranged to come to my home. He answered all my questions, including giving me prompt follow-up answers to my additional email questions. That may sound routine, but it hasn't always been my experience with other companies.

Luis, Alberto and Jose were the men who worked on my home. The arrived very promptly on the day they'd promised, ready to work. At first it seemed that they were moving a little slowly, but that wasn't slowness. It was thoroughness in the prep work. They addressed all the cracks and nail pops they found. They fully repaired a couple of old bad drywall repairs, to the point that, even knowing where to look, I can see no evidence of the prior damage. I'd asked if the popped nails could be replaced by screws in the repair. Milton had assured me they could, and they did. They took that kind of care throughout. The finished job is excellent.

They were careful in moving and covering my furniture. They cleaned up every day. They were always pleasant to work with and to have in my home. Luis' last word to me as he left was a reminder of the warranty; to let them know if I found anything afterward and to assure me they will come back to address anything they might have missed. After my experience with them, I have no doubt they back up their work.

I'm completely happy with their work and would recommend this company. I will use Williams Painting again.

These guys do charge a bit more than some others, but they are meticulous, polite and professional

Excellent work. These guys do charge a bit more than some others, but they are meticulous, polite and professional .The painter who did the job spent a LOT of time covering everything and taping up sheeting on the walls to ensure that nothing was damaged from the painting. He did a great job and, at the end, when I pointed out a small area that needed a tiny touch up, he happily took care of it (instead of complaining that he'd already packed up most of his stuff.) I also like that the supervisors check in (even on a one-day project) - when the painter had a question, he contacted the supervisor, and he came over very quickly while we discussed our options. In my opinion, they are worth the extra money. Also, look out on their FB page for deals - especially in the winter - ours covered free paint.

A Review for Ricardo Salas and Cristian

Ricardo Salas and Cristian just finished work at our house. Dave Williams and his staff has been painting our house for well over twenty years. Consequently, I expected a first rate job, and I was not disappointed. Ricardo and Cristain's preparation and painting were excellent. It was a complicated job involving two different colors, and they brought it off perfectly. They were neat and clean and completely protected other surfaces. That is why when I need painting done, I look no further than Williams Professional Painting.

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.

Their pricing was reasonable and honest.

This company is excellent to work with. Their pricing was reasonable and honest. I had 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.

A Review for Franklin and Edwin

Franklin and Edwin just completed a job on our house, and I wanted to let you know how superb their performance was.

Every day they were on time, they worked hard, and they were meticulous in cleaning up. Franklin always went to us with any questions he had; he never just assumed he knew what we would want.

They were a credit to Williams Professional Painting — providing the high-quality service that we have come to expect from Williams.

Please let them know how pleased we were with their work.

Thank you.

Rick, I wanted to follow up and let you know that your guys did a very nice job last night. Franklin and Carlos got here on time, were very professi

I had you guys take care of my exterior painting project recently, and I just wanted to let you know that it went very well. Juan and his crew arrived on time every day, were very professional, and did a great job. The trim and the deck looks great! I will definitely be contacting you guys in the future when I have any painting needs. Thanks. J.M. Annandale, VA.

Having been a customer of yours for about 25 years we knew what to expect

Dear Mr Williams

Its now about one week since your company completed the exterior painting and related at our house. Having been a customer of yours for about 25 years we knew what to expect -- and of course we were not disappointed! For us, this 2.5-3 week project was large and as always we were impressed with the care with which you helped us plan for it -- not least especially Lisa's help with deciding on the color scheme -- and for the attention to detail throughout. The foreman for the job, Walter, was excellent -- he was clearly committed to finishing a high quality job even if it took a little longer than expected -- and kept us well-informed on progress daily. He was also very responsive to any questions or concerns that we had as the job moved forward. His colleagues (Fidel and Jorge I think, and the carpenter whose name I forget) also did all they could to ensure a timely and good quality job -- and were scrupulous about clearing up after themselves at night and were especially thorough at the end of the task. And I should not forget your own key contribution -- answering all our questions quickly and comprehensively, and also showing great patience with us.

As always, overall, an excellent job and we will continue to recommend Williams Professional Painting highly.

Thank you

"We are happy campers!"


Mr. P

Old Town Crescent Unit Owners Association

This past Friday, March 29, 2013, Williams Professional Painting concluded their work on the interior of our building and the final check has been issued under the contract into which we entered back in February 2012. For purposes of your records and knowing what paint was used, please be advised we used Benjamin Moore “Pale Oak” on the first floor and a custom blend we titled “Nimbus 50%” for floors 2-roof vestibule, also manufactured by Benjamin Moore. Due in part to circumstances beyond our control, the project took longer than expected, but was well worth the wait considering the following five factors that help demonstrate the extra value we received under this contract:

  • the paint class was upgraded to “Aura,” the highest quality available, and wallpaper areas addressed twice, at no extra cost to the Association;
  • the painters worked quietly and on weekends, and Dave Williams even placed himself in harm’s way by photographing an intruder and likely criminal;
  • Dave Williams and his painting staff were professional at all times and exhibited extraordinary amounts of patience in addressing our every concern;
  • Dave Williams acted as a consultant during the paint selection phase and accommodated our many requests to test a multitude of paint samples; and
  • Williams Professional Painting made an inordinate amount of extra trips to our property, which costs the firm time and money, in order to accommodate our preferences, coordinate with our redesign schedule, and paint, repaint and caulk several areas outside the contract scope at no charge to the Association because he was not satisfied.

Given the high level of commitment Williams Professional Painting made to our property, it was considerably important – and fair – that this extra information be imparted to you. The Board anticipates budgeting for “upkeep” painting to keep the common elements as pristine as they look now. While the Board cannot offer an endorsement of a particular contractor to you, I have personally been impressed enough by the perfectionist efforts of Williams Professional Painting to retain them in the near future to paint my private residence and therefore have copied Dave Williams on this message in case you wish to consider him for the same. Although Williams Professional Painting will not be able to offer us a viable solution to paint the exterior elevator doors and entryway cladding on floors 2 – roof vestibule, the Board is engaged in discussions with an elevator specialist who purportedly has the technology to make those surfaces more receptive to paint engineered just to adhere to those challenging types of entryways.

Fantastic Job

Hi Dave,

Fantastic job on the external and internal painting - very positive experience for us as the Customer!

Walter and the crew were professional, courteous, respectful, etc. We've already been spreading the word about your company. (Rebecca will be typing up a recommendation for you to post on-line.)

Many thanks also for agreeing to paint the exact color that we needed for the siding and deck.

Kind regards,
Bill & Rebecca
