Finding a Hillandale Exterior Painting Company

Williams Professional Painting, Inc. BBB Business Review
 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!

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.


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.



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.



Thank you for providing us with two highly professional workers.


My husband and I would like to tell you how pleased we are with the work that was done by your employers, Juan Maldonado and his co- worker. They were at our house on Wednesday September 23 and Thursday September 24. While here they did carpentry work as well as painting. The end product is truly top of the line. We found Juan and his co- worker to be hard working, pleasant and above all else extremely competent. It will be our pleasure to recommend them to our neighbors, many who saw the Williams truck in front of our house and were curious to know what we were having done, and our many other friends.

Thank you for providing us with two highly professional workers. The result of their work gets an A+.

I wanted to let you know that Ricardo Salas did an “Excellent” paint job at our house. He was very professional and courteous. We will definitely be using you in the future.

Thank you,


When Sandy reached out for help with creating a new home office, we were excited to lend a hand. She had a fantastic space that just needed to be creatively reconfigured.


A review for a foreman Juan Maldonado

This is in reference to Juan Maldonado's work at my home from 08/24 to 08/26. Juan was very polite, neat, and on - time, and he and his assistant Daniel did a very good job patching, caulking, and painting. I would use him again.

"We are happy campers!"

Mr. P

Williams Prof Painting did a great job.

Williams Prof Painting did a great job on our huge 2-story windows and walls in our family room. When Rick came to do an estimate, he assured me they do this kind of work all the time, and they take great pride in their work. Carlos and Jorge were our painters and were always courteous and professional. Everyone communicated well and we could't be more please. Will use them again. Great job from a well-run company.


A Professional Painting Project

Arturo and Daniel both are quite professional and pleasant. I also want to compliment Williams' customer service staff. I always try to compare three vender quotes, and one of the key aspects is the excellent customer service by all that I come I contact. Williams Painting has always been a pleasure to work our projects.

Dave -

Just a note to let you know that Juan Maldonado did a very nice job for us last week. He was easy to have around and communicated well. It was a job made up of many little jobs and that’s sometimes hard to organize, but he did it! He had creative ideas when there were challenges and he always completed the project.

Thanks for getting it all done before the college party here this past Monday.

Happy Father’s Day!



Professional Painting in Springfield, VA

Dear Rick,

Thank you so much for standing behind your company and replacing a door in the back of my garage. Gustavo was very pleasant to work with and seemed to have a good knowledge of what was needed to make my door work and appear as it should.



This was a great experience!

This was a great experience- Rick oversaw the project from the beginning and was responsive, considerate, and honest, while JB, Lucius, and Jamie were here every day and were really excellent. They were courteous, efficient, and kind! I work from home so we saw a lot of each other. Our project consisted of fairly serious construction, as well as painting and finishing, and we are thrilled with the results. Working on the aesthetics with Lisa was a joy too, she was very thoughtful and creative. We are really very pleased with all aspects of this project, and will be using this company again in the future as needed.

...I am super happy with the work your team did. Carlos and his co-worker were so nice and courteous. The painting looks great...



Exterior Painting - Manassas, Virginia

Hello Lisa,

Carlos did an excellent job. Robert (?) too. The colors, in real life look real nice. The sassy green is very helps to add a little extra "look" to this area....reminds me of being in Miami!

I'm glad Carlos did the painting by hand instead of spraying (except for porch rafters). His judgement is appreciated.

Now I have my own work to do to finish the porch old cedar planks. I like how that part will look when all done.

I see several cans of paint left over - Thanks. Some red and some green..deck sealer too. I can just take the color codes for the porch floor (Bungalow) and the white (Alabaster) to the paint store for more right? I will use more in some places as I finish my remaining projects.

Thanks again too for your assistance - it made the process more fun.
