Exterior Painting Company in Gaithersburg, MD

 Exterior Painting Company in Gaithersburg, MD

It can be hard to find a good service company, whether you are looking for an auto mechanic, a plumber, or a local house painter. That's why, when we find a reliable company with good customer service, we tend to keep going back time and time again. How do you get to that point, though? Is it just trial and error? Or is there a better way to find your Gaithersburg exterior painting company?

Finding the right painting contractor is neither magic nor rocket science! If you just follow a simple set of steps, you have a great chance of finding a house painter you'll be delighted with. Best of all, you'll never need to repeat the search as long as you live in Gaithersburg!

Create Your List of Potential House Painters

While your first instinct might be to search on your phone or computer, and that is one good method to find painters, that should not be your only method. Begin by asking your neighbors, family members, friends, and coworkers here in Gaithersburg if they have any recommendations. When you hear a recommendation (or a warning!) from someone you trust, it means much more than what a stranger says online.

When you do search your internet search, don't just look at the top search results. Often, those are major nationwide companies and paid advertisers (sponsored results). As you look over the local painting companies that come up, look at reviews from genuine customers. Google Reviews can be helpful, as well as Yelp, HomeAdvisor, and so on. Don't let one bad review turn you off, but if you see several clients all say the same negative thing, don't ignore it!

National Painting Chains Versus Local Painting Companies

Just like national chain restaurants, when you work with a painting chain, their business model relies on high volume of sales. They are not focused on making relationships and developing long-term clients.

In contrast, a local family-owned painting company is invested in your community. They know that every painting project will either build or destroy their reputation, and they desire to win every first-time customer into a customer for life! This means you can count on their dedication to personalized, excellent service. Also, you can be assured they will stand behind their work.

Narrowing It Down to One Painter

Once you have a list of 3-5 exterior painting companies, it is time to begin the "interview" process. This is the time when you contact each company and ask for a free exterior painting estimate. Throughout the whole process, you will be gathering information and forming an impression.

What do you look for when you compare Gaithersburg exterior house painters? The main thing to consider is how comfortable you feel with them. Do you get a sense of competence and professionalism from the employees? Do you feel valued and understood? Would you feel safe with these people in or around your home?

Here are a few other things to look for or ask about:

Timeliness: do they pick up their phones and/or respond to your communication in a timely way? Do they arrive at the agreed upon time for the estimate?

Professionalism: do they have company vehicles and employee uniforms/dress code? Do they provide a written estimate on company letterhead?

Documentation: are they willing to provide you with proof of licensing and insurance?

When you compare the estimates, make sure you look at the details. How many coats of paint will they put on? Exactly what surfaces will they be painting? How much surface preparation will they do?

Making Your Choice

Now that you have gathered all the information you can, it's time to make a choice. You won't want to go with the lowest estimate, generally, but with the painting contractor who seems most likely to provide you with positive customer service and excellent painting. If you are still not ready to commit to a major project with any of them, try hiring them for a small project first, and see how they do.

Our Happy Customers

A Professional Painting Project

Last week, Williams painted the main floor of my townhome. The crew (Walter and Jose) arrived on time, worked continually all day, and cleaned up their work area before leaving. They did a great job! We would use them again


Jose and his crew did a fantastic job


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.


They Did An Amazing Job

Hello Alvis,

I just wanted to take a minute to tell you how happy we were with the two guys that did the painting the last 2 days, Jose and Jaime. They did and amazing job and went above and beyond what I expected. While the walls look amazing I have to say what looks 1 million times better is the trim around both sets of our steps. Jose took the time to caulk and clean up the cracks in that trim and then paint it to boot!! They also did an amazing job patching the ceiling in the entry way and they even put a coat of paint on the ceiling when they really didn\'t need to, nor was it in the contract. I can\'t say enough about the job they did and the quality of their work.

Thank You Again!

Alvis, the estimator I worked with, was very conscientious. He was very responsive and had great follow up. I had originally chosen another painting company to do the work but they backed out on short notice. When I contacted Alvis at Williams Painting he had a crew out right away. They did some of the work after hours and on the weekend but did not mark up the price. I have nothing but good things to say about Williams Painting.

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.

Well done, Juan!

" I want to complement Juan Maldonado for his outstanding craftsmanship and professionalism while installing a back splash in our kitchen. It will certainly add value and brighten the appearance of our home. Thank you"

A Review for Williams Professional Painting

Great job. Courteous and professional crew. Rick oversees the project on a daily basis. My house was painted about 18 months ago. I recently noticed a small peeling spot. Rick sent someone out at their first convenience. In addition to that repair, the painter found a few other minor repairs as he is specked i in addition to that repair, the painter found a few other minor repairs as he inspected the entire exterior of my house. He did a great job and I was very pleased. Will definitely have them back when I need painting again.


I am so impressed

The painting job your staff did on my unit 7/31 was outstanding! They were in and out in one day. They came will all the proper supplies and departed with all their equipment and cleaned up else where.

I am so impressed. I have a few more jobs that need work. I will call your company again.

Best regards,
Lynda Moore

Thank you for another job well done.

Just want to let you know that my husband and I are very pleased with the carpentry repairs done by Juan Maldonado and the painting done by Adalberto and Erik. As usual, all work was done in a professional manner. At the conclusion of the job, our outdoor furniture was moved back into place and the remaining paint was labeled, boxed, and placed in our garage – all we had to do was enjoy!

Thank you for another job well done.

You have a wonderful Hardworking crew, polite, and kind, and the house looks beautiful! My husband of 60 years is in the hospital and will have to remain for long term care. I will take a picture of the house to cheer him up!

Thank you again."

Great job!


She was very gracious and helpful.

Lisa was great. We were in sync with regard to paint choices and other related issues. Thanks for arranging her visit. She was very gracious and helpful. I intended to send you an email but had a dental appointment today.
Lisa is going to check on some additional items and get back with me.
Thanks again.


They have painted my church. They have painted my house. They have painted more property than anyone else I know. Williams Professional Painting is a very good firm to deal with and they provide excellent service.

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!

A Very Happy Client


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.)


Thanks again for the excellent service.

Just got home and checked out the paint job, looks great! The guys were very clean and precise with the job and were great to work with. Thanks again for the excellent service.

I also left you a 5 star Yelp Review tonight.

Have a great Holiday!


Very responsive in their communication with us.

They provided an accurate estimate, purchased paint and other supplies, painted about 3/4 of the rooms in our house, moved all furniture and replaced everything as they found it, cleaned up and were very responsive in their communication with us.
