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.

Testimonials

Our Happy Customers

However, it was Juan Maldonado who brought distinction and excellence to the finished product.

I wish to commend your firm for the outstanding painting of our family room. We were impressed with the technical skills and knowledge of all personnel involved in the project and their respect for our home and its belongings. We were also impressed with your firm’s flexibility and cooperation to meet our wishes with regard to the color scheme. The manner in which your firm handled this project clearly demonstrated a genuine commitment to customer satisfaction.

The preparation and painting of our family room was no easy task as the room is quite spacious with 22 foot ceiling. Your painters did their tasks in a correct, professional manner. However, it was Juan Maldonado who brought distinction and excellence to the finished product.

Throughout the entire project, Juan was cordial and very responsive to the comments and concerns of the homeowners. He answered all our questions, and kept us well informed of the work\'s progress. He was exceptionally reliable, always starting work when he said he would and following up his verbal commitments with substantive action.

Juan’s constructive advice, technical proficiency, and overall friendly demeanor made him a pleasure to work with and to have in our home. But what impressed us the most was the caliber and quality of his finished product. It was beyond what we had hoped for and we are very proud to have such superb handiwork as the center piece of our home.

We also want to commend Lisa Reyes for her advice on the color scheme and repeated visits to our home to ensure all was going well.

Again, we thank Williams Painting for such high quality customer service. Your firm’s management, staff, and painting crews have a work ethic and customer oriented attitude that will never go out of style.

Interior Painting Alexandria, Virginia

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.

Your painters were prompt everyday.

Good Morning Mr. Williams,

We were very pleased with the painting job you recently did for us. Your painters were prompt everyday and I was very impressed with the job of the painter who returned on Saturday, October 25th who returned to open the windows that were stuck with the paint. He came in and took his time to take care of each window and made sure I could move them. I will be calling you to paint the interior of the house in the future. It is good to know that we have found some professional and reliable painters who complete the job as agreed upon.

Thank you.

Sincerely,


A.P.

Review on a Recent Work

I just wanted to write and say what a nice job Walter and Gino did at our house this past week.

They were very pleasant to work with and have around.

I was very happy with the work.They were extremely focused on making sure I was happy with everything and took extra care to make things perfect.

The reason we always turn to Williams Professional Painting first

Bryan spent two days painting and doing repairs in our family room . The door jamb was heavily water damaged and he had to remove the old plaster and rusted metal supports and replace them. He replaced water damaged woodwork and repainted everything. The work was perfect. The jamb looked like new and all the work was neat and clean. In addition, Bryan was friendly and extremely professional. His work easily met the high standards I have come to expect from Willliams. He and the men like him are the reason we always turn to Williams Professional Painting first.

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

Work done recently on our ipe deck

I want to thank you for the work done recently on our ipe deck. Ricardo Salas and Pablo power washed the deck, removing several years of tree drippings and grime, and then applied the new stain.They did a good job working around the white painted railings and pergola posts.The result is beautiful and the deck looks brand new. The workmanship was excellent and they clearly knew the proper way to apply the stain.

Thank you.

Your team finished yesterday and did a wonderful job.

Your team finished yesterday and did a wonderful job. I spoke with someone on your staff yesterday and asked for the final invoice to be sent to this e-mail address which goes to my home. I will pay with a personal check to avoid your having to pay fees. I believe you had 3 folks on your team working here and I want to include in my letter some cash to give them.

I really enjoyed meeting with you on this job. I am totally delighted with the work and the Patio Room surround with the plastic wood protecting the bottom edge is both well done and eye-catchingly attractive.

Please pass on my 'well done' to your crew and take a lot of that 'well done' for yourself. You made me feel confident that you had the job well in hand which is just as essential as the actual performance of the work.

Regards,


Hugh McKay

A Review for Williams Professional Painting

Great job. Courteous and professional crew. Rick oversees the project on a daily basis. My house was painted about 18 months ago. I recently noticed a small peeling spot. Rick sent someone out at their first convenience. In addition to that repair, the painter found a few other minor repairs as he is specked i in addition to that repair, the painter found a few other minor repairs as he inspected the entire exterior of my house. He did a great job and I was very pleased. Will definitely have them back when I need painting again.

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.

Dave, yes things worked out great.

Dave, yes things worked out great. Thanks for organizing everything, and seeing the work through to the end.

I'll keep you in mind for my electrical needs as well. At this time I was able to figure out another solution for adding power to the coat closet, but there may be other projects.

Juan and his assistant were great; punctual and communicative. He was able to work independently while still answering questions I had; the perfect mix. He was responsive to my concerns and would attempt to assuage them. He could have been a tad more assertive and/or elaborate more on his opinions when facing a decision (repair OR replace drywall), since I was looking for more input off of which I'd base my decision, as he obviously has more experience.

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!

I was impressed by their ability to work together as a team.

Milton Chavez provided a written estimate (for labor and materials) that was in line with actual costs. This was not the lowest estimate we received, but did seem to be in line with the skill level of the workers who did the repairs. I was impressed by their ability to work together as a team and to communicate closely with us for the three days they were on site. Both master carpenters, Dagoberto Rodriguez and another gentleman whose name I cannot recall, were thoroughly professional in every respect. While they were at work, I felt our house was in good hands. It was a pleasure to work with them. We would definitely hire them again for future work.
