Exterior House Painting in Arlington, Virginia

What is a home? We all know that it is more than a roof and four walls, a place to eat and sleep out of the weather. Home is far deeper than that, giving us a sense of belonging and warmth, a place of shelter and relationship. For many of us here in Arlington, our home is even a part of our identity, a part of what makes us unique. That is why your home’s exterior painting deserves special care!

Exterior house painting is an exciting process because it allows us to shape our surroundings and craft our home to fit those who live there. It is also a wise investment, because exterior painting provides vital protection for the integrity and longevity of your house.

Choosing an Exterior House Painter in Arlington

When you are considering an exterior painting project in Alexandria, Virginia, you want to make sure you are getting a true professional. What are some of the characteristics you should look for?

Communication: All of the communication you receive from your house painter should be marked by proactive helpfulness, thoughtfulness, and professionalism. 

Legal Legitimacy: Never work with a painting contractor that is not properly licensed to work in your area. Also, ask about their liability insurance and worker’s compensation insurance.

Reputation: Talk to your friends and neighbors here in Arlington to find out who has performed the exterior painting on their houses, and whether or not they recommend those painting companies. Also, look at online reviews on Google, Facebook, Yelp, Angie’s List, HomeAdvisor, or other trustworthy review sites.

Estimate: If an Arlington house painting company offers a free estimate, there is no harm in taking them up on it! It gives you a great chance to get to know the company to see if they are a good fit. When you get the estimate, look for the details: how many coats of paint? What level of paint quality? How much surface preparation? What is included or excluded? Don’t go with a painting company that has sloppy or vague estimates.

Longevity: Small painting companies pop up and disappear with surprising rapidity. While a new painter is not necessarily bad, a well-established painter gives you peace of mind. If your house painter has been in business for many decades, it is probably because they have good service and a high level of commitment to the community. They are much more likely to stand behind their work.

A Review for Williams Professional Painting

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

I could set my watch by their timeliness.

The three man crew removed extensive amounts of wallpaper and prepared walls and ceilings for painting. The most concern I had was their ability to remove the wallpaper without damaging the underlying sheetrock paper. They did it carefully and with no damage. They painted close to 60 percent of the house. They repaired nail pops and any other nicks or blemishes in the sheet rock. They got an extensive job done in 4 days. They even took the initiative to repaint trim in certain areas. Very nice touch on their part.
I could set my watch by their timeliness. They were courteous and responsive to any request I had to attend to an area of concern, e.g., correct a slight imperfection in an original sheet rock seam. Also, very important to me, is the carefulness and cleanliness of the work processes. The guys were extremely attentive to putting catch mats down in all places and in how they managed paint preparation and stowage of materials and tools at the end of the day.
The job looks beautiful. This is the second time I have used Williams Professional Painting and, in fact, just called them for a minor repair in a ceiling that I just noticed.

...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

I haven't found anything that needs attention.

Dave,

I think we've finally put everything back together and it all looks just great. JB was so thorough before he left, I haven't found anything that needs attention. The crown moulding and moulding boxes really make a huge difference - much appreciated. Will most likely put a review on Angie's List. Stay warm this weekend.

A Review for an outstanding job.

Amy,

Please see my post on Facebook. Bryan and Daniel did an outstanding job for us today and we couldn't be more pleased. Thanks again for the outstanding job.


H & M W

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,


T.S.

A Review for an excellent job.

We recently had our ceiling painted in the front entry hall (February 11th).

Juan Maldonado did an excellent job. He was on time, the work area was spotless and the ceiling looks great.

As always we've enjoyed have Williams take care of our painting needs.

Williams Prof Painting did a great job.

Williams Prof Painting did a great job on our huge 2-story windows and walls in our family room. When Rick came to do an estimate, he assured me they do this kind of work all the time, and they take great pride in their work. Carlos and Jorge were our painters and were always courteous and professional. Everyone communicated well and we could't be more please. Will use them again. Great job from a well-run company.

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.

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.

Williams Professional Painting Delivered!

Hi Rick,

I just wanted to commend your team for doing a great job. Cristian and Walter were prompt, did a great job painting a very tall wall that I would be too scared to scale myself, and left everything clean. The colors are exactly as I wanted them, also thanks to Lisa's good work at matching the Ralph Lauren colors that I liked. I am very excited about moving into my new condo with colors that make it a space that is uniquely mine.

I am glad that your company was able to handle my job very quickly; this was absolutely no-hassle in terms of scheduling. Right now, that kind of service was what I needed, and Williams Professional Painting delivered. Please be sure to recognize Cristian, Walter, Lisa, and anyone else on the team who contributed to make this a seamless experience for me. And thank you for providing benefits for your employees and treating them well.

Best regards,

A Painting Project

Dear Rick:

Dago and Eric just left. They did a wonderful job. I really love the way the bedroom looks and as for the guest bathroom, they were able to repair the plaster from the roof leak before painting the room and it looks great. I will definitely fill out a review for you and for them.

I also appreciate the help that Lisa gave us.

Please do not hesitate to give my name if people request a reference.

Best,

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.

The crew did a good job

The crew did a good job. They were very responsive to my feedback. Overall, good job.

Thank you for an excellent staff and for quality work!

Milton,

I wanted to send a quick note this evening to let you know how happy I am with the exterior painting work. The guys finished up tonight, working very late in order to complete everything before the heavy rain starts early tomorrow, and the house looks fantastic!

I also want you to know what a terrific team you have, so professional and always gracious. They worked meticulously each day (I don’t even think I saw them eat lunch!), and they were always ready to explain anything they were doing whenever I asked questions. My experience with your company has been wonderful and I look forward to working with you again early in 2017 to complete my interior plaster repair and painting project.

Thank you for an excellent staff and for quality work!
