Hiring a Langley Park Exterior House Painter

Williams Professional Painting, Inc. BBB Business Review
 Hiring a Langley Park Exterior House Painter

Most of us play favorites when it comes to getting services we need. Rather than choosing a new hairdresser, A/C repairman, dentist and mechanic each time we need help, we tend to stick with someone once we know they do good work. How can you get to this point with an exterior house painting company? How do you sort through all the options for Langley Park house painters, and choose the one you will come back to every time?

We could skip right to the punchline and tell you to hire Williams Professional Painting, but that wouldn't be fair! Instead, let's take a look at a process you can use to select your exterior painting company. Then, when you begin your selection process, we would be honored if you would include us in your considerations.

Narrowing the Field: How to Pre-Screen Painting Contractors

If you search online for Langley Park exterior house painters, you are likely to end up with a vast array of options. How do you sort through these options to get your short list?

A great way to begin is by asking your acquaintances here in Langley Park, such as friends, neighbors, family and coworkers. Ask them which painting contractors they have worked with, and how their experiences have been. These personal referrals are worth much more than information you can find online.

That said, it is also a great idea to search for Langley Park painting companies online, but make sure you read reviews to get an idea who you are dealing with.

Narrow down your list of options to 3 or 4 likely candidates, and then begin your "interview" process.

Using the Exterior Painting Estimate Process as an Interview

You can find out a surprising amount about a painting company by requesting a free estimate and observing them closely throughout the process. Though it takes a bit of time, once you have decided upon your Langley Park exterior painter, you should never have to repeat it!

The first thing to look at is their communication. Do they respond to your requests promptly and courteously? Are they proactive and helpful?

Next, consider the estimate process. Is the estimator helpful or pushy? Does he or she have a professional appearance and demeanor? Does the painting estimator arrive on time? Do you feel comfortable with this person in your home?

Once you have an estimate from each Langley Park exterior painting company, take a look at the details.

  • What level of surface preparation will they do?
  • Will they use primer?
  • How many coats of paint will they apply?
  • What surfaces are included or excluded?
  • Is there a warranty on their work?

Finally, ask your estimator for proof of state licensing and liability/Worker's Compensation insurance. A reputable house painter will be happy to provide you with this reassurance.

If You Are Not Sure, Start Small

Before you hire a painting company to do a major repainting project on your Langley Park house, you might want to start with a small job. For example, you could hire them to paint a garage door, your window trim, or a deck. If you are happy with their work, then you could invite them back to do a whole exterior house painting job.

Our Happy Customers

The reason we always turn to Williams Professional Painting first

Bryan spent two days painting and doing repairs in our family room . The door jamb was heavily water damaged and he had to remove the old plaster and rusted metal supports and replace them. He replaced water damaged woodwork and repainted everything. The work was perfect. The jamb looked like new and all the work was neat and clean. In addition, Bryan was friendly and extremely professional. His work easily met the high standards I have come to expect from Willliams. He and the men like him are the reason we always turn to Williams Professional Painting first.

An Interior Professional Painting

Dagoberto Madrado (sp?) and Pablo tackled repainting the interior of my home. I was impressed by the way they scoped out the job and the way they chose to tackle it. And, tackle it they did with professionalism and skill, all the while touching base even on such minor details such as whether I wanted to rehang pictures where they were. It I was especially impressed with the care they took in prep work, which, no doubt, made the final result excellent. After each day, Dagoberto would ask me to take a careful look at their work and give him feedback. They were especially careful about making sure furniture was appropriately moved and put back. Both Dagoberto and Pablo are truly an asset to Williams Brothers. This was the second time I’ve engaged Williams Brothers, and on both occasions the result was outstanding. The attention to detail Dagoberto and Pablo gave to my home was outstanding. They should be proud of the result as I am pleased by it.

Exterior Painting In Great Falls Virginia - Sr. Maldonado demonstrated his superior skills

Again, Sr. Maldonado demonstrated his superior skills in repairing the exterior of our house. His partner was new to us but his skills, too, were evident. This explains the excellent job they did.

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.

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.

A review on foreman Ricardo Salas

Ricardo Salas did a very good job and also carried himself throughout the day in a very professional manner. Ricardo took the time to discuss the job and what the expectations and results would be.

Overall very pleased with Ricardo.

The final result is beautiful

Ricardo Salas was the foreman on the two man crew that repaired extensive damage and painted my house this week. He arrived to the minute on time, and worked with discipline and skill all day every day. He went above and beyond to make the work perfect..even painting the tiny ceiling space above the huge window near the ceiling. He was polite and courteous.He is one of the finest workers I have ever seen at my home. The final result is beautiful. Thank you.

The quality of the workmanship.

We just had our beautiful historic townhouse painted by Dave with Juan Maldonado as our foreman. The house is absolutely beautiful. The quality of the workmanship, customer service, and professionalism was exceptional. Thank you Dave, Juan and your crew for restoring this beautiful building to its glory. You are truly the best.


J.K

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,

Interior Painting Project in Alexandria, VA

The process of getting the estimate all the way through completion of the job could not have been more seamless or easy. We just purchased a new construction condo and initially thought we could do the painting ourselves but decided to at least get an estimate from a professional. The owner of the company actually did our estimate and was kind enough to point out serious mistakes in the builders painting job (such as the builder did not sand the walls before applying paint so the paint was rough in several spots). The estimate to paint our entire first level, the stairwell and the upper level hallway was incredibly reasonable and quite surprising. So we hired Williams right away. We were able to schedule the job quickly and the painting was completed in two days. They did a perfect job. There is no better way to qualify the quality of the work. We are so happy that we decided to hire Williams Professional Painting and they will definitely have our business in the future.

I will be sure to recommend Williams Professional Painting to my friends and neighbors.

Dagoberto, Fidel, and “D2” performed extensive work on the exterior of my house from May 25 through May 27. They power washed the exterior, replaced wood trim with PVC, and painted the exterior. They also repaired drywall in my den, and painted that wall.

They did an outstanding job! I will be sure to recommend Williams Professional Painting to my friends and neighbors, and as the need arises in the future I intend to use Williams.

Thanks!

Note of Commendation

Rick:

We want to commend Juan, Caesar, and Eric for the excellent paint job they did at our residence during the week of 14 November 2016. The crew did outstanding work in the painting of our upstairs hallway and adjacent entranceways and niches. Their attention to detail combined with their skillful application of unique color accents and faux painting techniques has given the area done a grand appearance. Their work is the reason why when it comes to excellence, we select Williams Painting.


F & C

I'll be sure to recommend this company and the services of Rick and Bryan to all of my friends.

I cold called Williams Professional Painting while searching for painters for my new condo in DC to obtain a quote. I was able to promptly talk to Rick Williams on the phone and he was extremely responsive and reasonable. I told him I recently purchased a condo and wanted to repaint everything prior to moving in. He sent an estimator out to my condo. The estimator, Jose, showed up on time and was extremely courteous, even removed his shoes prior to entering my condo. He took measurements of the rooms and recommended different types of paints for the rooms. I discussed with Rick that I needed the job done in two days and he said it wouldn't be a problem. His crew led by foreman Bryan arrived on time and was also extremely courteous and professional. Their #1 priority seems to be getting the job done correctly. Some of my paint colors were rather dark for accent walls and although my contract said 2 coats of paint, Bryan used 3 coats to ensure that the accent walls were painted properly.

Rick's team kept their word and finished my project in 2 days, even though it required bringing in a few extra painters, they still did not lapse their deadline. In the end, I am glad I hired Williams Professional Painting and did not take on this task myself or hire hourly help to assist me to paint. I'll be sure to recommend this company and the services of Rick and Bryan to all of my friends.

A Review for Bryan and Carlos

We had previously used Williams Professional Painting; so we knew we would get quality work. Bryan and Carlos were very professional. They arrived on time both days, worked quickly and produced outstanding results. The upper floor of the townhouse was especially difficult due to the shape of the ceiling and accessibility to some of the walls. Again, I was very pleased with how they accomplished the task and the speed with which they moved. I would not hesitate to call on Williams Professional Painting again. They are a little expensive; but well worth the expense. Bryan and Carlos are excellent painters...ask for them if you use their service.
