How to Choose a Local Exterior House Painter in Hunt Park, VA

Williams Professional Painting, Inc. BBB Business Review
 How to Choose a Local Exterior House Painter in Hunt Park, VA

The people here in Hunt Park have strong values that hark back to previous days, emphasizing community, family, and neighborliness. This sets Hunt Park apart from the other suburbs of Washington, D.C., helping to hold back the commercialization and isolation that infect so much of modern life. How can you find an exterior painting company who respects and shares these Hunt Park values?

One of the best choices you can make is to work with a family-owned, multi-generational house painting company. This kind of business provides numerous benefits to homeowners:

  • When their family name is the company name, you know they value their reputation and will stand behind their work.
  • When they have been serving the same community for several decades, you know they will not disappear when you need them.
  • When they plan to pass the business on to their children, you know they are working hard to win lifetime customers through their excellent work. They are not just hoping for a quick sale.

How Do You Decide between Exterior House Painters?

While a quick search on your phone or computer can bring up many options, it is a good idea to start by speaking to friends, neighbors, family, and coworkers here in Hunt Park. Ask them about the local exterior painters they have worked with, and whether or not they would recommend them. This is a great way to get personal testimonials that point you in the right direction.

After you have a list of potential options, contact 3 or 4 of them and ask for a free estimate for exterior painting. This gives you a chance to find out more about them, almost like a job interview!

What to Look for in a Hunt Park Exterior Painter

Professionalism is the key word during this process. For example, is the company timely and responsive in their communication? Does the estimator arrive on time and in a company vehicle/uniform? Does he or she put you at ease, or make you feel pressured? Are they forthright in answering your questions?

During this process, take the time to ask about liability insurance, worker's compensation insurance, and appropriate licensing. A reputable house painter should be ready and able to give you proof of these important requirements. Also, ask about the guarantee they have on their work.

Finally, take a close look at the estimates that you receive. Don't just go to the bottom line, however. Take a close look at the details.

How to Evaluate an Exterior Painting Estimate

You always want to make sure you have all the pertinent details in writing. For example...

  • Level of surface preparation (pressure washing, surface repair, priming?)
  • Quality of exterior house paint
  • Number of coats of paint
  • What is included and excluded (all walls? trim? doors? window frames? garage?)
  • Caulking

When a painting company is vague, it leaves you too much room for unpleasant surprises.

Our Happy Customers

An Interior Project

I am very pleased with the work that was done. The painters were very courteous and friendly. Thank you for the great service!

A Professional Interior Painting Project.

Dear Rick,

It is hard to believe that just one week ago you were here to give me my estimate. Now my job is finished!

The crew (D2, Henry, and Les) were great. They were professional, clean, polite -- in a word -- gentlemen. I felt very comfortable with them working in my home. All of the work was carried out to my satisfaction, including the exterior painting and power-washing, the interior repair/caulking prep work, trim, wall, and stairwell painting.

I will definitely call Williams Professional Painting the next time I need a reliable, trustworthy, class "A" painting job!

Sincerely,

P.S. My only regret is not having used your color stylist to assist me in my paint selection.

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.

A Review for Franklin

We are very happy with the work as we have been in the past.I would like to commend Franklin who supervised the job. He is very much up to the standards that we have come to expect from Williams.

Exterior Painting Estimate

I didn't actually get any work done by Williams because my timeline would not work with the schedule but they actually sent me an email to let me know that they would have to decline the opportunity to work on my project. This is the first time I've ever received such a courtesy from contractors in the home improvement business, and I cannot express how wonderfully professional this is. I have had far too many experiences of contractors coming out to estimate, only to never contact me again, or to go through the trouble of sending me a quote and then never actually schedule the work.


While I did find someone who was able to do the work I requested in my short time frame, in the future, I will definitely contact Williams again for a bid. Just this email was enough to tell me about the company culture here, and I have great confidence in their professionalism.


P.L.

Thank you very much for such good service!

We were very happy with the work done by Williams Professional Painting and the crew who worked at our house. They were very careful and thorough. I appreciated that they made sure all the windows opened and locked after they finished. Bryan and Daniel (and Edwin earlier) were great! They kept us well-informed about their progress and discussed options at various decision points. I've already recommended your company to two families - and will continue to do that if anyone's looking for this type of service. I also appreciated the way the office kept us informed as we went through all the delays due to rain, and the fact that Milton came by to check on progress and consult on an issue that arose.

Thank you very much for such good service!

Best regards,

A great review on a finished project in Washington, DC

Dave – I would just like to express my appreciation in writing for the wonderful job Williams did in the recent painting (8/19 –8/28/15) of my home. The painters worked tirelessly from early morning to late afternoon. I was fortunate in having Dagoberta D2 as the team leader. Not only was he an excellent painter but he kept me informed of the progress of the work and what I could expect each day. The work was challenging. It included removing wallpaper from two closets, one partitioned into upper and lower halves. Working in these small spaces would test one’s physical and mental toughness. Suffice it to say that both closets look like works of art now with smoothly painted walls and woodwork. The team of painters also included Erick, D1, Rodrigo, and Enrique. They were all extremely hardworking and pleasant.

While the painting of the interior has made the house look new, the exterior painting has made it look like a show house. Neither would have been possible without the help of Williams’ Designer Lisa Reyes. Lisa steered me in the right direction with color choices. I could easily still be bogged down by decisions if she had not given her stamp of approval to selections we considered early on.

Finally the work might not have gotten off the ground without the help of Jose Guzman. In the period preceding the work, Jose came to my home twice as I struggled to finalize my requests. On the day that the painting began, Jose arrived to orient Dagoberta D2 on the scope of the project, remembering even the smallest details. Throughout Jose kept in touch with me and with the team.

As a homeowner I could not have asked for a better experience with a company. I hope that I have an opportunity to work with Williams again.

Respectfully,


M.B

Exterior Carpentry And Painting

Greetings:

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.

Regards,

Williams Professional Painting Review

Good morning,

We just wanted to let you know what a wonderful job Carlos and Fidel did on our recent paint job. They were punctual, polite, and very helpful. The outside trim and inside entry look beautiful, and the repairs they made both inside and out are great. Thank you so much to both of them!

Sincerely,



T & J

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.

Hi Dave,

Gabriela mentioned that I should send a note to you when I called to let her know how happy we were with the services that Jose, JB, and Rodrigo provided. Jose and Tim found a great team to help us finish the job when we determined that we needed a team with experience with durarock instead of drywall. Jose was patient and very attentive to our concerns.JB and Rodrigo replaced part of our walls and repainted the damaged walls and ceiling. Their work is beautiful. I can't even tell there was ever water damage in those areas. They also took great care in making sure our furniture was protected and to minimize dust. Their clean up exceeded expectations. Thanks for sending over such a great team! We look forward to working with them again in the future.

Kind regards,


E.A

Thanks for a beautiful job. Also for the little extra favors like changing light bulbs in high places, power washing surrounding horizontal surfaces, trimming an overhanging branch & a little extra caulk where it was really needed.
