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 just wanted you to know that not only did they do a fantastic job,

Hi Amy & Alvis,

Adalberto & Cristian left about an hour ago, after finishing up the painting. I just wanted you to know that not only did they do a fantastic job, but they worked clean, were professional & were very accommodating. Every evening, before they left, they always checked with me to make sure that everything that I requested was being done, even to the point where I had forgotten to mention to the office , when I told them what paint I needed, that I needed Hi Gloss paint for some of the items. The next day they had the Hi Gloss. Nothing was ever a mess. the room furniture & floors were well protected with tarps, even all the flooring from the front door to whatever room they were working on. Their painting was flawless. I know, because I used to do all our painting, so I know what it takes to do such a fantastic job. Even with me taking my time, I could not do it half as good as Adalberto & Cristian.

In the evening when they were finishing up, they made sure everything was orderly, with their supplies organized & the floors vacuumed. Their was another gentleman here on the first day & his work was flawless as well.

I tried to write a review on some of the sites on the card that Adalberto gave me, but I guess I am not very computer savvy & could not do it. I will see if my husband can help me get to the correct site.

So thank you for your wonderful service. This is our 3rd time using Williams Professional Painting & we have never been disappointed & always extremely pleased.

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

Description Of Work: Painted living room wall and baseboard, den walls, ceiling, 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 properly 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.

JB is a master carpenter and painter.

Excellent work by the entire staff, from the owner who provided the overall estimate, to the workers and office staff. Professional, polite and punctual in all aspects. Work entailed carpentry, wallpaper removal, wall prep, crown moulding/boxes, chair rails and painting. We met with the company designer for color consult and some additional suggestions. Overall project took about a week. JB is a master carpenter and painter. He and his partner were punctual, worked diligently, and did a compete clean-up every day. JB did a walk-thru upon completion of the work to ensure we were completely satisfied. We have used Williams Professional Painting before for both interior and exterior painting and have been extremely pleased each time.

We Love Happy customers

We had two full bathrooms renovated and needed to have the rooms painted. Williams came highly recommended on Angie's List which I religiously rely on before I engage a business. The company had a estimator scheduled the day I called during the following work week based on our availability. Alvis was well versed in the latest options for painting our spaces. He recommended a Matte finish and we both agreed on a Sherwin Williams paint. We needed one of the bathroom ceilings painted and Alvis recommended that the second bathroom ceiling was in good shape and did not need to be painted. We also got a quote for a stairwell and hallway. Finally, the kitchen ceiling needed both repair and painting. Alvis recommended painting the adjoining hall ceiling since there was no separation but suggested that we wait on painting the ceiling of our living and dining rooms that were separated but on same floor with the kitchen since, once again, the ceiling was in good shape so no need to spend the money. The crew showed up on time and focused on the two bathrooms on the first day. By the time I got home that evening, they had prepped the walls and one ceiling and had painted two coats of paint on one bathroom and one coat of paint on the second bathroom. While the paint work was excellent, the prep work in a number of spots in both bathrooms was not acceptable. I informed Alvis who promised me that the crew would resolve any concern we had. We proceeded to mark each spot that needed to be sanded and/or skim coated for the next morning. Alvis showed up the next day to ensure that the crew resolved all of our concerns. Once again, by the time I got home from work, the walls looked great, there were multiple coats of paint on both bathrooms, both ceilings had been prepped and painted to our satisfaction. The matte finish minimized accentuating any imperfections and the paint work was excellent - the crew also did an excellent job of keeping paint off of the trim and cleaning up after each day. I would employ their services again and will have them paint the stairwell and hallway in the near future.

The work they did was top notch.

They were very professional and friendly, as well as trustworthy. The work they did was top notch. I would definitely recommend them again and use them again.

Exterior Painting Alexandria, VA.

Another quality job by the Williams crew. Ricardo and Fidel made

sure everything was covered prior to prepping the surfaces to be patched

and painted. They worked neatly and efficiently. Alvis had accurately

prescribed the job and Ricardo and Fidel executed it to the letter.

Of course, I will continue to use or recommend Williams as my "go to"

painters in the future. The office staff acknowledged the order, gave me

a scheduling window, notified me of the time and day, and made sure

the scheduled appointment was met.

Thanks for another job well done.

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.

Jose and his crew did a fantastic job

Rick:

Jose and his crew did a fantastic job over the past few weeks. We are very pleased not only with the quality of the work, but with the professionalism of Jose and his crew. Williams Professional Painting is truly an extraordinary company with a well-deserved reputation for excellence.

A Review for a Flawless Job!

These guys are simply the best. They did work all over the house, recaulking a tub, dealing with water damage, rebuilding a ceiling over two attached rooms - i.e. not a terribly simple or quick job. They took their time, worried about the details, and ended up doing a flawless Job. Cristian, the Foreman, was lovely, touching base at the beginning and end of each day, staying on top of everything. I would use these guys again and again.

Thank you.

I just wanted to let you know how pleased I am with Ricardo's professionalism.

I just wanted to let you know how pleased I am with Ricardo\'s professionalism and easy to work with manner. He is just now finishing the new stain on my back porch and I am very happy with the color match and detailed application.


L.W.

He has always, and continues to be, the ultimate professional.

Dave,

Just a quick note re: Juan.

I have had occasion to interact with him a total of 5 or 6 times, he has always, and continues to be, the ultimate professional.

Allow me to recap, your email stated he would arrive between 0730 and 0800 and sure enough at 0745 he was at the house. Once at the house he accessed the situation with the doors quickly and quickly implemented a fix, after noticing that the proposed solution would not work, he recommended other solutions but, from my point of view, always balancing the professional outcome with the cost/level of effort that would be required.

I have verbally stated this before, but your crews have NEVER disappointed me, I am very comfortable with Williams Professional Painting in my property, and look forward to a continued business relationship.

Very Respectfully,
Ary Rodriguez

Thanks for the good work - you are truly "professional"!

Franklin and his crew (Carlos, Jorge, JB, and Daniel) did an outstanding job painting the exterior trim on our house.With it raining almost every day this month, they managed to get the work finished by staying until after 7pm on clear days and working all day one Saturday.The work quality was excellent, they respected the interior of our house and always wore foot protection, and they kept us informed about when they were coming and when they couldn't due to the weather.They were very professional and committed to getting the work done and done right.Our thanks to the entire crew!We definitely will recommend Williams for any painting job and will use them again on our next (hopefully interior) painting project.

Thanks for the good work - you are truly "professional"!


P. & C. M

Another Satisfied Client in Alexandria, VA

Thanks for a beautiful job. Also for the little extra favors like changing light bulbs in high places, power washing surrounding horizontal surfaces, trimming an overhanging branch & a little extra caulk where it was really needed.

Williams did it again!

Williams did it again! Walter and Andres rescued my house from disaster...not really but it sure felt like it! Our bedroom was painted, deck re-stained, lots of odds and ends type of painting projects that I had collected over time. Two days of work and now a lifetime of beauty! You are the best! I am president of Walter's fan club! I had to give him a hug I was so glad to see him and Andres! He brought his magic wand with him and worked wonders. Many Many Thanks!


Debbie Miller

The cleanup after completion of the job was also impressive.

I wanted to commend Williams Professional Painting (WPP) for the excellent performance on my recent painting job. WPP lived up to its high recommendations. It was a pleasure working with WPP -- from the schedulers, the estimator who came to preview the job, and Walter Osegueda and his partner who performed the work. Every step was handled efficiently and as promised. The crew arrived on time and completed the job -- which involved plaster repair in an older home in addition to painting -- earlier than expected. Everything was done exactly as I requested. The cleanup after completion of the job was also impressive. I am very pleased with my newly painted rooms, and would definitely call WPP for another painting job.

Thank you!
D.D Arlington, Va

Very Detail Oriented

The house looks great! Franklin and his crew were all very detail oriented. I am pleased that Franklin suggested painting the foundation on the rear addition-it gives it a finishing touch.

Franklin was particularly professional and respectful whenever he spoke of you.

I anticipate having some of the interior painted around February 2014. I will give you a call. I would be please to have the same team.

Sincerely,
M.E.B.
