Finding a Hillandale Exterior Painting Company

 Finding a Hillandale Exterior Painting Company

They say, "Good help is hard to find." Despite the fact that there are hundreds of painting contractors in Maryland, it can be tricky to choose a good one. How do you go about selecting a Hillandale exterior house painter? How do you know if your exterior painting company will be a worthwhile investment, or a nightmare?

There is no way to be absolutely certain until you have worked with a company, but if you know what to look for, there are many clues that can point you in the right direction. We hope that as you apply the following ideas to your search for a Hillandale painting company, you will take a look at Williams Professional Painting!

Compile a Short List of Exterior House Painters

If you search on your phone or internet browser for Hillandale exterior house painters, you are likely to discover that there are tons of options. A better place to start is to ask your friends, family, neighbors and coworkers here in Hillandale about their experience with painting companies. See who they have worked with, and whether or not they would recommend them. This helps you get a good start in determining the companies you want to give more consideration.

After seeking recommendations from people you know locally, do that online search and see if you find some of the same names. Also browse for other local painting companies, and take a look at their websites. Always consider their online reviews on sites like Google Maps or Yelp, and use this to help narrow down your list.

In the end, you want a list of three or four Hillandale exterior painting companies that you will "interview" in the next step.

How to Interview a Hillandale Painting Company

Now that you have a short list of house painters to choose from, arrange a painting estimate from each one. The purpose of this is not to find out who has the lowest price. Rather, it is to evaluate the professionalism and competence of each company as they go through this process. Here are some tips on what to look for:

Timeliness: Does the company get back to you promptly when you communicate with them? Does the estimator show up at the scheduled time? How long does it take them to provide you with the estimate?

Professionalism: Does the estimator drive a company vehicle and wear company clothing? Is the estimate on official letterhead? Do they conduct themselves with competence and respectfulness?

Paperwork: Can the company provide you with proof of Maryland licensing? Do they have liability insurance and Worker's Compensation insurance? Don't hesitate to ask for these proofs of legitimacy!

Detailed Estimate: Take a close look at the details, and be wary if they are vague rather than specific. How much surface preparation will they do? Exactly what surfaces will they paint? Will they use primer? How many coats of paint will they apply? What quality of paint will they use? Remember that a cheap estimate for exterior painting could mean an inferior job.

Besides all this, there are some intangible factors that you can also look for as you gather these estimates. Do the companies set you at ease, or leave you feeling pressured, stressed, or nervous? Would you trust them to take good care of your home and to be respectful to your family?

If You Are Not Sure, Start Small

Sometimes, even after taking these steps, you still are not sure whether you will be totally thrilled with a Hillandale exterior house painter. A good way to proceed is to hire the company for a smaller painting job, like for your trim or for one exterior wall. If they do a great job with that project, then you can proceed to hire them with confidence when it is time for complete exterior house painting!

Our Happy Customers

Interior Professional Painting. Washington, DC.


This is just to give my foreman, Ricardo Salas, and his team high marks for the painting project they are completing today at my home. Ricardo and his crew were punctual, respectful of my furnishings, and eager to please. Their work is top notch and they clean up after themselves very thoroughly. Ricardo helped me re-hang heaving pictures, which was very helpful. He is a great asset to the Williams Painting Company. Many thanks.


Williams Professional Painting

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.


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 for your follow-up note – and thanks for the job. Les did a truly excellent job of managing this project, including his own efforts wielding the paintbrush. As a team, Les, Ricardo and Eric were professional, conscientious and diligent painters. All of the work was done with care and attention to detail. The team showed up and finished the job on time as projected. They cleaned up the job site perfectly.

We will not hesitate to recommend your firm to friends. Moreover, this winter we are likely to contract for some inside painting work, and will contact you about that when we are ready.

Best regards,

Dave, et. al.,

It was a pleasure to work with Jorge and Juan as they went about the task of improving our building. They did a great job, were attentive to our wishes, and cleaned up nicely every day. They represent you well.


Interior Professional Painting Alexandria, Virginia

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.


Exterior Carpentry And Painting


I was very pleased with the work that Dagobarto, Fidel & Les did on the 27th replacing two rake boards on my house. The three men were friendly and professional. Les’ presence helped a lot because he made sure I knew that I wouldn’t be charged for the time D2 and Fidel spent getting paint, the PVC boards and a taller ladder.

If I were Dave I’d wonder why the crew showed up without those items. If they had they could have fit in another job in the time it took to get what they needed. That’s not a hit on D2, Fidel or Les.

So, as I told Les, Williams Painting remains on my short list when my home needs to be painted again – probably not for a couple of years.



A Review for Ricardo Salas and Cristian

Ricardo Salas and Cristian just finished work at our house. Dave Williams and his staff has been painting our house for well over twenty years. Consequently, I expected a first rate job, and I was not disappointed. Ricardo and Cristain's preparation and painting were excellent. It was a complicated job involving two different colors, and they brought it off perfectly. They were neat and clean and completely protected other surfaces. That is why when I need painting done, I look no further than Williams Professional Painting.


Review on a Recent Work

I just wanted to write and say what a nice job Walter and Gino did at our house this past week.

They were very pleasant to work with and have around.

I was very happy with the work.They were extremely focused on making sure I was happy with everything and took extra care to make things perfect.

I would happily have them back again and want to thank you for sending such a great crew to my home!


Exterior Painting - Fairfax Virginia - These two workers were very professional, highly skilled and hard working.

This past week on July 23 and 24 Les Eichhorn and Paublo Benavides primed and painted our double wide carport. These two workers were very professional, highly skilled and hard working.

It was obvious from the beginning their intent was to do an excellent job and satisfy the customer in every way. They meticulously covered property to prevent damage from paint spray and gave us an exceptional paint job. When they finished, the only evidence they left behind was a beautiful carport!

We would recommend Williams Professional Painting to all persons who need anything painted.

Sincerely yours,

Mark Summers

We will definitely call Williams Professional Painting for any future work!

Hi Rick, everything looks wonderful! Your crew was super nice and clean too! Thanks again for getting me in earlier. I really appreciate it. I'll be giving your name to everyone I know who needs a painter and drywall repair.

Thanks again!


A Review on a Recent Painting Project

Wanted to send a note of appreciation re my recent painting project. The whole process was seamlessly handled. Mr Williams offered suggestions and promptly provided an estimate. Amy, the receptionist, courteously handled the scheduling of the project, arrival times, and billing questions. Adolberto Ferrafino and Rodrigo arrived as scheduled, and with a minimum of household disruption and mess performed a "face-lift" on my living room. The plaster repair and new paint gave the room a whole new look. I am very pleased, and plan to use Williams for painting projects I may have in the future-perhaps an exterior paint project in the spring. Thanks much.
