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 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.

A Very Happy Client

Hello,

I just wanted to let you know that my husband and I could not be more pleased with our experience with Williams Professional Painting. First, despite a small mix-up in the scheduling, Yanize was very kind, professional and understanding, and she immediately put me at ease and was able to very quickly resolve the issue (and I was so relieved that Williams was able to work within my scheduling needs). The interior painting work itself was beautifully done, and the painting team, Dagoberto and Carlos (along with Franklin on the first day) were professional, skilled, courteous and considerate. They arrived right on time each day and worked very hard, producing beautifully painted rooms. I felt very much at ease with them in our house and appreciated the attention to detail of their work. They really went above and beyond in their painting work, even patching up an extra small area that had some scratches. This was very generous and really stands out in my mind. They also worked hard cleaning up all of the painting materials and dust afterwards. In short, our experience with Williams was a wholly positive one, and I would not hesitate to use Williams again and will be recommending you to others. Thank you for making our home beautiful, and for making the process as easy and painless as possible.

(I should also mention that we enjoyed working with Jose, our estimator, who was also very professional and responsive, and I appreciated his advice on painting needs for our home.)

And again, I really can't say enough about how pleased we are with the work of Dagoberto and Carlos, and the whole Williams team. Thank you again!

(I will also be placing reviews on Angie's List and Yelp.)

A Review for Williams Professional Painting

Dear Williams Professional Painting,

Ricardo Salas and Jorge did an outstanding job today at our house. They were neat, did great work and could not have been more polite and professional. They got right to work and finished both projects on time. Very satisfied with the job!

Thanks,

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.

Your painters have just completed painting our house and it looks beautiful!

Williams Professional Painting,

Your painters have just completed painting our house and it looks beautiful!

We feel fortunate that we selected you to do our painting. From the beginning all went well. Milton Chavez, your estimator, listened to our concerns and developed a contract that met our needs. During contract development, Milton was always readily available and even after painting began Milton would quickly respond to our questions.

Special thanks go to Ricardo Salas, the onsite foreman, and the crew that worked with him. We do want to recognize the good and careful painting that Noe performed and the pride of a job well done evidenced by both Noe and Ricardo. We are very satisfied with the work performed by Ricardo and his crew.

Your employees are absolutely superb!!

Dear Milton:

I hope this email finds you well and that you are recovering from the nasty flu.

Joe and I would like to express our appreciation for the excellent service we received from Williams Professional Painting for the paint job at our residence that started last Monday and it was completed today.

Your employees are absolutely superb!! We certainly appreciated their knowledge, dedication, and hard work. Their efforts to finish the job today went beyond the call of duty. Despite the fact that they started very late today due to my medical appointment, they were determined to finish today and they did, even though they had to work until 7 pm in the evening.

We were highly impressed by their expertise, deep sense of responsibility, and dedication to their work. Despite having to work during one of the coldest week of the season and having to go back and forth to their truck to get stuff, they portrayed at all times a very gracious and pleasant disposition, professional demeanor, and willingness to do a job well done. How very lucky Williams Professional Painting is to count Dagoberto and Eliazar as members of the staff. Employees of their caliber are very difficult to find. They delivered a service for us in a way that one only expects from truly professional people.

Milton, please share with them this letter and please convey to them once again our appreciation.

Thank you again Dago and Eliazar. We want you to know how much we appreciated your hard work. You are truly remarkable. Your dedication to your work is admirable, and your sense of responsibility is very commendable.

To everybody at Williams Professional Painting, please accept our very best wishes for the successful continuation of your work.

Most sincerely,
O. S.

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 painted four rooms in our home, the entryway, and stairs. They also repaired plaster ceilings and walls and assisted with paint color selection.

We had a great experience. The estimator (Alvis) was efficient and knowledgeable. The designer (Lisa) who helped us pick colors was skilled at putting together color combinations that looked good and matched our tastes. The painters/plasterers (Santos and Carlos) did an exceptional job to make our home look like new. I even had a chance to meet Mr. Williams who was very professional and down to earth. My only (very minor) critique would be that the cleanup after the job was finished could have been a touch better.

I could not live with out Williams Professional Painting! I am a real estate agent and I sell houses and rely on them heavily to come in to paint to get them ready. I would not use anyone else unless it was absolutely necessary. I have used them for years and their professionalism is superb and they pay great attention to detail. Also they will come back and fix anything that might happen at no additional charge.

Rick, the owner, is AWESOME. His crew came in and painted our 3 story townhome in under 2 days, and even came back to fix what the electrician destroyed of my brand new paint job. The job his men did was incredible, and working with Rick was incredibly easy. I highly recommend him and his business!

It is really a pleasure doing business with a company that 'gets it'

I would like to thank you and your team for the completion of an excellent painting job. My project consisted having the complete interior of my town home painted, ceiling, walls, trim and closets. The entire process from the initial estimate to the final walk through was painless and very professional. It is really a pleasure doing business with a company that 'gets it' and delivers on what is promised with no hassles.

Dagobarto (D2) and Jose were outstanding. I met with them every morning to 'check-in' and review the progress of the project. They were always on-time and very courteous. D2 and Jose provided excellent service in terms resolving any items I brought to their attention or answering any questions I had about the project. The work area was always cleaned up daily and as each room was completed a final cleaning was done. They both paid special attention to details, especially in repairing the holes in the drywall as well as the metal front door.

I am extremely happy I selected Williams Professional Painting and would gladly recommend your company to others.

Sincerely,
S. V.

Once again a great experience working with Juan and Noel

We have used Williams Professional Painting for years and been very happy. Juan has come to our house at least twice and always displays a professional but friendly attitude. Our house has always been left clean and orderly. Yesterday, his helper included Noel who corrected many of the stains and problems with our ceiling. They arrived exactly on time too which is hard to do in this area's busy traffic. Thank you both for doing a great job and making it an easy experience once again.

Response: Thank you for your comments. we are very fortunate to have Juan and Noel working with us. We are glad you are happy and look forward to working with you again in the future

You Can't Beat Good Customer Service

Alvis (the estimator) was prompt and responsive. We purchased the house in July, and requested costs for the above work, as well as potentially additional work (painting the living room, and painting the in-law suite in the basement). He broke down the costs for each section, allowing us to pick which work we wanted done. They also were very helpful in coming out to paint the window trim in one room that we needed painted before installing new blinds.

The onsite crew looked at the areas to be painted with us before proceeding. They were prompt in arrival times, and completed the work within the estimated time frame. There were a few drips onto the radiators that I found months after the painting (so obviously not reported to the company as it took me so long to find them!). But other than that, they did a really great job, and it\'s held up nicely so far.

A Holiday Treat!

"Thank you for coming over to pick up the check; I appreciate it. And please tell Santos and Rodrigo how much I appreciate nice work – especially finishing the extra work in time to show off the whole house to my Thanksgiving company. That was a nice holiday treat!"
