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.

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.

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.

A Review for Bryan and Carlos

We had previously used Williams Professional Painting; so we knew we would get quality work. Bryan and Carlos were very professional. They arrived on time both days, worked quickly and produced outstanding results. The upper floor of the townhouse was especially difficult due to the shape of the ceiling and accessibility to some of the walls. Again, I was very pleased with how they accomplished the task and the speed with which they moved. I would not hesitate to call on Williams Professional Painting again. They are a little expensive; but well worth the expense. Bryan and Carlos are excellent painters...ask for them if you use their service.

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.

A Happy Client!

"Both of the men that you sent were excellent and I've very seldom had painters that did such a good job and were so careful. They didn't get a spot of paint on anything other than the walls and they were very polite and as I said they were very careful to cover everything they moved furniture to help me decide on a couple of things and they were very professional and very good. I didn't catch their names but I just wanted you to know that they were good and I do appreciate them. Thank you so much. "

Dagoberto was the foreman and I want to commend him highly for his work.

Your company recently repaired the ceiling and painted a bedroom in my mother's house in Arlington. Dagoberto was the foreman and I want to commend him highly for his work. He is a careful and hard worker, paying attention to every detail, including cleanliness. We are very pleased with the quality of his work; you are fortunate to have such an excellent and dedicated worker.

As we told the crew, they made the house beautiful.

Dear Williams family,

We needed an experienced company to paint the interior of our 2200 sq. ft. 1948 brick rambler. The walls and ceilings in the original part of the house are plaster on wood lathe. During its 65+ years, the walls and ceilings were showing cracks suffered from settling, earthquake, and a mediocre paint job done by someone else 10 years ago requiring more prep time than the 1990-91 addition (drywall and wallpaper to be removed).

Once we decided that we were ready to have the house painted, we began interviewing painting companies and chose Williams Professional Painting for reasons both tangible and intangible.

A work colleague had recommended them based on their results on the exterior painting of their home.

We attended a complimentary paint consultation seminar hosted at Williams’ plant. Attendees included real estate agents, previous clients, and potential new business opportunities like us. The class was conducted by an experienced painting and color design consultant.

The plant was clean, well-stocked, and well-organized with paints and paint samples, ladders, and drop clothes for pending jobs. It was there that we met the Williams family. We knew that we could trust this family to do the job right.

Rick, the owner’s son, inspected our home twice to gauge the amount and type of work required. He then decided which of his crews had the mix of skills required to perform the job. Our crew foreman was Jose G., and the team included Ricardo, Jaime, Jhoiner, Marvin, and Dagoberto.

They did all the big and little things right, such as the following:

The crew was punctual starting every day at 7:30 AM. They worked the entire day of the mid-January snow storm and appeared the day after that storm at the same 7:30 AM starting time. They worked the entire day breaking only for a brief lunch, which they ate on the premises. They concentrated on their tasks throughout the days. They took extra care protecting our belongings including babysitting the 2 dogs if they got out. They were conscientious when it came to keeping the outside gates closed so there would be no runaway dogs. They asked us clarifying questions if there ever was the possibility of doubt. There was never any sense that any of the valuables in the house were in any jeopardy. At the end of every day, they cleaned their tools and carefully vacuumed our rugs and floors. They left the house spotless. They organized, consolidated, and covered with a tarp all of their materials and equipment in a central area that was the least intrusive to our family and pets. They offered a touch-up visit if needed before we put the house up for sale in 2015.
The crew from Williams Professional Painting made the paint project as painless for us as possible. As we told the crew, they made the house beautiful. The repair s and preparation work were superb. They know their profession and are craftsmen. We thanked them very much, and told them that they made our home beautiful. No one could have done a better job than they did.

This is what we told them: Usted ha hecho mi casa realmente hermosa. Han echo un trabajo maravilloso. No podríamos haber pedido nada mejor.

A Very Huge Thanks To Your Team

A very huge thanks to your team who did a WONDERFUL job today! I was so thrilled to come home and see the beautiful job - even better than I had hoped. Everything looks perfect and the place was immaculately clean behind them.

I truly appreciate you making the arrangements to double up the team so that they could get the job done today. It is an enormous help to have this done before the weekend and before the holidays hit.

A big, big thanks again to you and Christian and all of your team!

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.


C.C.

Thanks for sending such a professional and excellent team!

Amy and Gabriela: thanks for sending such a professional and excellent team of Arturo and Armando. They were always on time, courteous, thoughtful-- and they got the job done beautifully in only three days.

Please know that I will heartily recommend your company to anyone I know who needs painting done in a professional manner. Word-of-mouth is always a great way to promote any business, and you deserve the best in reviews.

Thanks,

What A Great Idea. A Painter For A Day

What a great idea- painter for a day. I want to write a quick note to let you know how pleased I am with the paint job that Dagoberto Machado did for me on Friday the 18th. He arrived promptly at 7:30am and went right to work. He was very careful with the furniture that I could not get out of the room. Everything was covered up and when he was finished, everything was cleaned up. The color looks lovely and I wanted to let you know that Dagoberto did a fantastic job. Williams Professional Painting has done a lot of painting at our house (inside and out) over the years. I will continue to use your services in the future.

Thank you-
D.D.

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.

Williams Professional Painting Review

Good morning,

We just wanted to let you know what a wonderful job Carlos and Fidel did on our recent paint job. They were punctual, polite, and very helpful. The outside trim and inside entry look beautiful, and the repairs they made both inside and out are great. Thank you so much to both of them!

Sincerely,



T & J

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.

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.
