Exterior House Painting in McLean, Virginia

They say that beauty is only skin deep, and there is something to that saying. That does not mean, however, that we should neglect the health of our skin. It is not merely aesthetic, but it is also a vital organ, performing irreplaceable functions for our bodies. Have you ever thought of exterior painting in the same way? While we may think of its primary function as artistic, exterior house painting actually gives vital protection to the rest of your home!

Why Exterior Paint Is Essential

Like our skin, exterior paint provides a barrier against the elements. It is engineered to resist ultraviolet radiation from the sun, temperature changes, snow, ice, and other forms of water intrusion. Exterior house paint also keeps wood-destroying insects at bay. 

If the exterior paint on your McLean home is kept in good shape, your house is well-protected against the forces of nature that would otherwise degrade its structure and value.

An additional aspect of painting that some people overlook is the caulking. Caulk provides a waterproof, durable, flexible edging around windows, doors, vents, and other seams. Over time, caulk can become brittle and split or peel. This must also be regularly maintained to protect your home.

Choosing an Exterior House Painting Company

Among the many house painting contractors in McLean and the D.C. area, how do you know whom you can trust? In order to have a good house painting experience, customer service and professionalism are the key qualities to look for. You can read online reviews and talk to your neighbors and coworkers to narrow down your options. 

Once you have chosen three or four companies to get estimates from, look for the clues in how they treat you and how they operate:

  • Are they on-time for appointments?
  • Are they prompt and courteous with communication?
  • Do they have company vehicles and employee uniforms? 
  • Do they provide a detailed estimate on company letterhead?
  • Do they have proof of licensing and insurance when you request it?
  • What kind of guarantee do they offer on their services?
  • How long have they done business here in McLean?

Remember that a reputable painter may ask for a partial payment up-front, but be on your guard if they ask for the whole fee ahead of time.

Our Happy Customers

I don’t know what I would do without your company and all its great people!

It was such a pleasure to have Franklin and Jorge back for another painting chapter chez Sugiyama/Ritts. They are terrific painters, impressive dry wall experts, remarkably efficient, and all-around wonderful people. Franklin was especially kind helping me pick another great color for a room. And they always leave the house in better condition than it was when they got here.

I don’t know what I would do without your company and all its great people!

Absolutely Outstanding

They did an absolutely outstanding job. From the first day they came out here to look at what needed to be done, Rick Williams explained everything to me. He quoted a price to have the exterior of my home painted. He said they'd also do my mailbox, a shed, the post of a railing, as well as the shutters. They did everything. The two individuals who worked on the house, Luis and Jorge, were superb. They were so professional and always turned up on time. They were very clean. I never knew they were even here with how clean they were. Whenever I had any questions and needed to call, Rick answered or got back to me as quickly as possible. They're attitudes were lovely. I don't give high remarks to anyone that doesn't deserve it, but I can't speak highly enough about Williams Professional Painting.

JB made it important to him.

I would like to commend JB, he was great. Our job was small but it was important to us and JB made it important to him. He knew we were not satisfied with one particular aspect of the finished job and after talking to us about several options, he came back and proceeded with the decided upon option and it turned out perfect. He was always polite and professional and willing to go that extra bit to make sure we were satisfied.

Kudos to Williams Professional Painting to hiring such an outstanding tradesman and thank you JB!

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.

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.


P.S.

He was easy to have in the house;

Hi Dave -- Just wanted to let you know that we are very pleased with the painting and carpentry that Gustavo did for us. He was easy to have in the house; very polite and professional. He worked hard and addressed every one of our concerns without complaint; a pleasure to deal with.

Thank-you! --

The person conducting the estimating work ( Alvis) was extremely professional and knowledgable.

Description Of Work:

Painted living room wall and baseboard, den walls, celing, baseboards and fixed stains and cracks, dining room baseboard as well as complete foyer where there were cracks and leak marks.
Member Comments:
The person conducting the estimating work ( Alvis) was extremely professional and knowledgable. He was friendly, exactly on time and very responsive in providing the bid. We obtained two bids and while the other was lower we wanted to assure excellent work and since the estimator was able to fully explain why paint that had been put on our front door in the past did not stick (first person to be able to diagnose the problem) we decided that this and their current reputation on Angie's list coupled with their years in service meant that the higher price would likely be worth it - and it was.
The painters arrived on time, were careful to propertly move and cover furniture and other items, carefully laid tape to block off areas NOT to be painted and completed the job fully in two days as projected. They were helpful - having a larger crew come the first day to help move some heavy items and the scheduling person readjusted the initial scheduled time as our floor project ran over. The foreman throughout remained in communication on issues and was very responsive to any request I had. Cristian Reyes was the foreman and excellent.
The cost may be higher but I gave it an A as it is worth the money.

Bull Run Condominium Community

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!


J.J. H. - Board of Director's President

The workers were clean, professional and punctual.

Rick Williams came to go over the work and give an estimate. I was pleased to find they use only their own workers, no
contractors. Their workers are all either legal US citizens or have a green card. The workers were clean, professional and punctual. And every day before leaving they cleaned up ALL debris. I was very pleased with their work and workers.
Several neighbors have commented on what a good job they did and a neighbor has just come to my door to ask who
I used for the exterior painting - I was pleased recommend this company.


Alexandria, VA

Excellent work, very professional.

Painted exterior included repairing rotten boards, refinished deck. Excellent work, very professional, they were helpful in working with my schedule.

Thank you for providing us with two highly professional workers.

Dave:

My husband and I would like to tell you how pleased we are with the work that was done by your employers, Juan Maldonado and his co- worker. They were at our house on Wednesday September 23 and Thursday September 24. While here they did carpentry work as well as painting. The end product is truly top of the line. We found Juan and his co- worker to be hard working, pleasant and above all else extremely competent. It will be our pleasure to recommend them to our neighbors, many who saw the Williams truck in front of our house and were curious to know what we were having done, and our many other friends.

Thank you for providing us with two highly professional workers. The result of their work gets an A+.
