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

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. "

Cristian And Jairo Were Very Professional

Hi Williams Rep,

Quick note to let you know what a terrific job Cristian and Walter did recently painting our home. They were both very friendly, respectful, and conscientious.

They did a wonderful job painting our home, and it really looks great! They also paid extra attention at the end of each day to clean up and leave our home in great shape.

I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for an excellent painter.

Best,
Betsy

Dear Rick, Arturo and his team did a fantastic job.I could not be more pleased. .Thank you for repeatedly providing me with excellent service and results.

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.

Dear Rick:

Dago and Eric just left. They did a wonderful job. I really love the way the bedroom looks and as for the guest bathroom, they were able to repair the plaster from the roof leak before painting the room and it looks great. I will definitely fill out a review for you and for them.

I also appreciate the help that Lisa gave us.

Please do not hesitate to give my name if people request a reference.

An Interior Professional Painting

Dagoberto Madrado (sp?) and Pablo tackled repainting the interior of my home. I was impressed by the way they scoped out the job and the way they chose to tackle it. And, tackle it they did with professionalism and skill, all the while touching base even on such minor details such as whether I wanted to rehang pictures where they were. It I was especially impressed with the care they took in prep work, which, no doubt, made the final result excellent. After each day, Dagoberto would ask me to take a careful look at their work and give him feedback. They were especially careful about making sure furniture was appropriately moved and put back. Both Dagoberto and Pablo are truly an asset to Williams Brothers. This was the second time I’ve engaged Williams Brothers, and on both occasions the result was outstanding. The attention to detail Dagoberto and Pablo gave to my home was outstanding. They should be proud of the result as I am pleased by it.


P.B.

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,

A Professional Interior Painting Project.

Dear Rick,

It is hard to believe that just one week ago you were here to give me my estimate. Now my job is finished!

The crew (D2, Henry, and Les) were great. They were professional, clean, polite -- in a word -- gentlemen. I felt very comfortable with them working in my home. All of the work was carried out to my satisfaction, including the exterior painting and power-washing, the interior repair/caulking prep work, trim, wall, and stairwell painting.

I will definitely call Williams Professional Painting the next time I need a reliable, trustworthy, class "A" painting job!

Sincerely,

P.S. My only regret is not having used your color stylist to assist me in my paint selection.

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,

Williams did a fantastic job painting my house.

Williams did a fantastic job painting my house. I hired them to paint pretty much my entire house before I moved in.

Milton (their estimator) came out to the house initially to give me an estimate. He was very professional and gave me information about the company, their licenses and warranties, and the paints that they use. I was able to schedule the work to start very soon after the estimate (which was fantastic, considering I had a pretty tight schedule).

Cristian (the painting team's foreman) was wonderful. When we first met, we spent some time organizing all of the paints into which rooms they would apply to. He followed all of my instructions. He and his team did a wonderful job and were on time - the rooms look fantastic and the team left my house pretty darn clean. I really could not believe how early they all started!

Williams is a little pricey, but I think it is totally worth it for their professionalism and quality. I would highly recommend them.

Kitchen Painting Alexandria, Virginia

Hi - I wanted to just let you know how impressed we were with Ricardo Salas and Cesar last week. They were here several days prepping and painting our pretty messed-up dining room and our kitchen. The kitchen color is a pretty intense red, and they did an awesome job getting a nice, consistent color. The prep in the dining room allowed them to get a really nice finish in there on the walls, ceiling and trim. They also power washed and stained our backyard fence which pretty much looks like new now.

They guys could not have been more timely, polite and professional. Ricardo made sure we were completely happy with the job, which we were. They arrived each morning before 7:30 so they would be ready to start right at 7:30 and they left our house very clean and put back together.

I would also like to say thank you to Lisa Reyes for her help to us on choosing colors. She was very patient and came out to our house twice on Saturday mornings to go over samples, including some that she had made to give us a better sense of the color on a larger chip. She also came out during the work to make sure everything was being done as we had discussed.

Friends have already commented on what a great job they did and I have recommended Williams Professional Painting for any painting needs they may have. As our needs arise for additional painting in the future, we will definitely call on you again! Thanks for the great job!

Williams is a good company to work with. There are only a few service providers that I enjoy working with and Williams is one of them. I have been using them for over 5 years for both big and small projects. They have always been there when I need them and I have nothing negative to say about them.

The house looks beautiful!

Bob and I are very pleased with the outcome of our painting project. The house looks beautiful. Many of our neighbors have seen your work and have been very impressed. Hopefully some more work will come your way.

We want to give a big thanks to your crew. Lisa was so helpful in the color selections. She also answered many questions on other ideas and always led us int he right direction. Walter and his guys were amazing. They are true professionals and take pride in the work they do. We really appreciated all the time they spent on prepping our walls. They corrected so many of the builder's mistakes. The crown molding that was added really finishes off each room. Give a special thinks to Walter, Carlos, Edwin, Gustavo, and Daniel. Tell the guys that our dog Maisie misses them and Walter can visit her anytime.

We are planning on contacting you again in the Fall to finish off our painting project. That will be the two upstairs guest bedrooms and bath and the garage.

We Have Witnessed The Best In Professional Painting.

Alvis,

We can\'t begin to say how pleased we are with the beautiful job that your painters, Jose and Omar, are doing! They are very professional, punctual and responsive to all our questions. They did a remarkable job of removing very stubborn wallpaper, working consistently and systematically until the surface was beautifully prepared for the new paint. We are so happy and excited with the results, as the rooms look exactly as we wanted them to be.

We\'ve been spoiled now because we have witnessed the best in professional painting. We had promised to have our neighbors come in when the work is finished, as they are also planning to paint and we certainly can recommend Williams Professional Painting to them and to our town-house development\'s corporate office, with the greatest confidence. It will be a pleasure to post our raves on Angie\'s List as well.

At the end of last year, when we had finally decided to paint and were in contact with several painting companies, it became immediately clear to us after meeting with you that we would choose Williams Professional Painting. As their representative, Alvis, you conveyed to us everything that we needed to know and were so reassuring and easy to converse with. Choosing your company was the best decision ever. Thank you again for your guidance and patience throughout the process and for referring us to Janine, whose consultations were so valuable in helping us to decide among so many lovely Benjamin Moore colors. She drove out here in heavy snow to make sure that we could finalize our paint choices with confidence. Amazing!

We are now so anxious to move on with the process and paint our upstairs level and our downstairs family room level. Can you imagine anyone actually looking forward to a home painting project? After seeing the beautiful results in our kitchen, living room, dining room and hallways, we can say that we are certainly ready to complete the process in our home. Congratulations on a job well done!

Sincerely,


J.S.

Exterior Painting And Carpentry. Alexandria, VA.

I had a third-story gutter that was drip-leaking over my deck. I would like to commend Juan Maldonado and his helper for inspecting, ascertaining the problem, and rectifying it. He reviewed the problem, recommended the fix, and after the go-ahead, proceeded to implement it.

It will take another hard rainfall to determine if the repair eliminated the issue completely, but the measures taken by Mr. Maldonado and his crew were well-thought out from his experience, and executed very professionally.

Thanks,

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.
