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.

I Normally Don't Do Reviews

Good afternoon

I normally don't do reviews but I was compelled to write something about Ricardo Salas. He did an outstanding job and is a true perfectionist at his craft. You guys are very lucky to have him on board and if I do buy a house in a year I would ask for him to do the job. If you have any questions or concerns for me please email me back.

Thank you,
S.P.S.

Many Thanks for The Great work

Hi David: Many thanks for the great work done by your workers in painting the narthex of First Presbyterian Church.

The narthex looked so good that it made the connecting areas cry out for attention.

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.

When Sandy reached out for help with creating a new home office, we were excited to lend a hand. She had a fantastic space that just needed to be creatively reconfigured.

They arrived at the promised time

I am writing to let you know how very pleased I was by the work done by Ricardo Salas and Rodrigo on June 14, 2015. They arrived at the promised time and both worked very hard to do a superb job despite the heat and humidity. The carpentry repairs were at the 3rd floor level, as well as much of the painting and, in my eyes, the results are excellent.

Thank you for providing such courteous, experienced and skilled tradesmen. I will definitely recommend Williams to friends and call on you again when needed.

Sincerely,
Sharon Burke

Alberto and Omar did a wonderful job painting my kitchen

Just to let you know that Alberto and Omar did a wonderful job painting my kitchen. It looks really beautiful. They were totally professional and extremely pleasant and I appreciate the fact that you sent Omar to help after the mix-up regarding scheduling this job. Thanks again for your help and I'll be in touch regarding some work to do in the basement.

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.

A Review for JB!

Good Evening!

Yesterday, JB from Williams Professional Painting came over to do a job for me.

He did an excellent job! He started the job on time, was very professional in his attitude, and finished the job in one day.

His work was excellent. My garage door and trim look much better.

Thanks again for the good work!

Take care,

Exterior Painting In Great Falls Virginia - Sr. Maldonado demonstrated his superior skills

Again, Sr. Maldonado demonstrated his superior skills in repairing the exterior of our house. His partner was new to us but his skills, too, were evident. This explains the excellent job they did.

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

Williams Professional Painting

Hello,

We are writing to express our thanks to Dagobarto for doing such a wonderful job painting the room we plan to use as a nursery for our new baby.

The prior paint job was not great and he did a fantastic job putting on the new color and trim, as well as cleaning up the mess that was already there. He was prompt, attentive, and professional and my husband and could not be happier with the results. The nursery looks fantastic.

Thanks again and we will certainly consider your company for paint work, and of course recommend your business to others we know.

Thanks,


P. & D. A.

In the future I will be turning to Williams Professional Painting.

On January 14th, 2015 Mr. Juan Maldonado arrived early to paint my apartment ceiling from an earlier roof leak. He was early, but was very patient and waited for my family to get off for the day before starting his work. When he did so he was very professional, quiet and neat. He finished the painting in a very timely manner and worked around our cluttered apartment. He also helped paint over a small damage spot in our stairwell which I can not thank him enough for as the little repair job would have taken much longer if left to my own devices. So again I want to say thank you for the outstanding work he did today and should I need further painting services in the future I will be turning to Williams Professional Painting.

The crews were always eager to be sure that the customer was happy with all their work

We needed repairs to drywall and also some carpentry after water damage to our townhouse first floor. Due to insurance delays and issues, the work ended up being done in "spurts" instead of all at once.

Even though we had many delays and stops and starts, WPP were always cheerful to respond and did the work professionally. The crews were always eager to be sure that the customer was happy with all their work. We had a challenging job because our townhouse is over 50 years old, but this was no problem for WPP. The price initially quoted by WPP may be higher than others, but, they seem to build in enough contingency in their fee so that if you encounter any bumps in the road, they have "no problem" responding. That is not true with other painting contractors in our experience. Also, the billing office and owners are available if you have questions and are happy to discuss options or any concerns you might run into. Everyone at WPP was a pleasure to work with. Rare these days!

I wanted to let you know how our community is very happy to have JB and Franklin working for us. Both of them show outstanding customer services and impressive attention to details. They really do the impossible job of trying to keep our homeowners happy. They are patient and polite to everyone even with frustrated homeowners.

It is not often an employer gets positive reviews on their workers or the jobs performed. I really speak from the heart for Bull Run Condo Community in saying, Job Well Done JB and Franklin!
