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.

An Exterior Painting Project

I had Ricardo, Salas and Cesar plus a couple of other guys work on my son's house. They did an excellent job and worked very hard throughout the project. The foreman(Ricardo, I think) kept me abreast of the progress throughout while I was at the house. The paint job is excellent.

Jose and I did not communicate well during the estimation process. The estimate that I received was not the total amount (excluding additional carpentry work needed) I expected it to be. I was shocked when I saw the final bill. The terms of agreement also showed that I would receive two coats and I did not. I was told that was only true for the pvc boards and door, that the paint was so good in covering that I did not need two coats. When I asked the foreman(Ricardo, I think) about painting the mullions he said they normally do not do those. I told him to call Jose and Jose confirmed that they would be done. So, the job was excellent but the estimation process did not go well. I'm sorry about this because Jose is a very nice guy and I enjoyed working with him, and he was concerned and respectful. I was told that Williams would replace two facial boards that go on the roof area free of cost. Thank you very much.

Overall, what is most important is that you did a great job and treated me respectfully and the job diligently. I hope the same can be said for me.

Please take special note that all the painters on my job worked hard and diligently throughout.

Thank you.

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.

I had a fantastic experience with Williams Professional Painting

I had a fantastic experience with Williams Professional Painting. My husband and I just moved to Virginia from Minnesota and we found Williams Professional Painting through Angie's list. I received estimates from three different painters and Dave Williams' estimate was the priced in the middle of the other two. But the reason I picked them was Dave's professionalism and responsiveness. He offered some great advice on questions I had throughout the house and his administrative team was quick and polite in responding to my questions. The crew began just two weeks later and did a beautiful job. Not only that they were very respectful of my privacy and were extremely professional. They also gladly did a few "honey do" items for me while they were here. They were a joy to have in the house and were fantastic about patching up and correcting little imperfections in the walls and ceiling that I hadn't even noticed. After the job was finished Williams Professional Painting offered services of their carpenter who works on an hourly basis to hang up all the art work. Juan, the carpenter, was very, very careful with all his measurements and, like the painters, was so conscientious. He even, when asked, offered some advice on the height at which to hang some pieces. Williams Professional Painting did a great job and they were a godsend to someone like me who is new to the area and had no one from who to get referrals. I was also impressed that Dave, the owner, stopped in twice during the job to check to see if I was satisfied.

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!

Above and Beyond

Williams Professional Painting just completed painting our home-interior and exterior. They have the utmost professionalism and go beyond the job. One painter took out our trash! So kind, so thorough, and very easy to work with.

Thank you for the beautiful job you all did!

A very pleased client from Alexandria, VA

Dave,

Les did outstanding work - looks brand new. He went out of his way to research the exact match on paint, and also astutely noted that he probably needed to ensure the paint work he did after refinishing the seams coalesced with the balance of the hallway paint. I am very pleased, and you would be too. Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.


N.P

We have used Williams Professional Painting for 15 years and will not use another company.

From the estimator, to the painters, to the owner - a top quality crew. Estimator was prompt, courteous and professional. This was a 5-day project. The painters were superior with excellent skills (including all dry wall patching and nail pop repair). They were professional, arrived on time, and cleaned up every day. The work looks so good that we don't want to re-hang our pictures and paintings. We have used Williams Professional Painting for 15 years and will not use another company. (Although we do get quotes from other companies to see the competition.)

Williams Professional Painting

Dear Mr. Williams

I would like to thank your staff, Milton Chavez, Lisa Reyes,Juan Maldonado and Eric Quinteros for their exemplary professionalism and outstanding work on my newly remodeled basement. Milton was totally up front with me every step of the way. He explained all additional charges which would be needed to remedy the newly discovered mold and to add crown molding which were not included in original contract. Lisa did a wonderful job helping me select paint colors. Juan and Eric arrived promptly every day, worked almost non-stop even when the temperature was an unbearable 106 degrees. I want you to know I will be putting my comments on Yelp and will be sending you a copy.

Again my sincerest appreciation for a job well done. I will be recommending you to my family and friends.

Sincerely,


L.L

Commercial Property Manager from Foulger Pratt Management

Alvis, the estimator I worked with, was very conscientious. He was very responsive and had great follow up. I had originally chosen another painting company to do the work but they backed out on short notice. When I contacted Alvis at Williams Painting he had a crew out right away. They did some of the work after hours and on the weekend but did not mark up the price. I have nothing but good things to say about Williams Painting.

A Review from Clifton, VA

Everything looks great. They did a fantastic job and were very professional.

Thank you!

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.

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 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

Thank you for another job well done.

Just want to let you know that my husband and I are very pleased with the carpentry repairs done by Juan Maldonado and the painting done by Adalberto and Erik. As usual, all work was done in a professional manner. At the conclusion of the job, our outdoor furniture was moved back into place and the remaining paint was labeled, boxed, and placed in our garage – all we had to do was enjoy!

Thank you for another job well done.

Sincerely,


S & G

Exterior Carpentry And Painting

Greetings:

I was very pleased with the work that Dagobarto, Fidel & Les did on the 27th replacing two rake boards on my house. The three men were friendly and professional. Les’ presence helped a lot because he made sure I knew that I wouldn’t be charged for the time D2 and Fidel spent getting paint, the PVC boards and a taller ladder.

If I were Dave I’d wonder why the crew showed up without those items. If they had they could have fit in another job in the time it took to get what they needed. That’s not a hit on D2, Fidel or Les.

So, as I told Les, Williams Painting remains on my short list when my home needs to be painted again – probably not for a couple of years.

Regards,


G.L

Great work!

Dave,

The ladies have asked me to tell you that the person who did the drywalling and painting in the bedroom of Apt. 3 is excellent. We can't even see where anything was done. Great work!

The attention to detail shown by your staff, was very impressive.

Good Day Mr. Chavez:

I want to thank you for the outstanding work performed recently at my home by Williams Professional Painting. The quality of work was great! Also, the attention to detail shown by your staff, was very impressive, making the home project experience smooth and stress-free.

I look forward to the next project.
