Selecting a Local House Painter in Kensington, Maryland

Williams Professional Painting, Inc. BBB Business Review
 Selecting a Local House Painter in Kensington, Maryland

Here in Kensington, Maryland, a typical home needs exterior painting every 5 to 7 years. One of the most important aspects of that paint job is the quality. If the exterior painting is done right, it will look fantastic and the paint will give its maximum performance. However, a poorly done paint job can cause numerous headaches:

  • Unsightly appearance due to sloppy workmanship and/or budget materials
  • Shorter life span of exterior paint job due to improper surface preparation
  • Subsequent paint jobs will also be more difficult and might not last as long, due to failing paint on the exterior surfaces

How can you find an excellent Kensington painting company, so that you can be confident your exterior paint will look amazing and last a long time? Here are a few tips.

Make a List of Reputable Local Painting Companies

While it might seem like a quick search on your phone or internet browser is the best way to get started, you might actually want to begin by asking your neighbors, friends, family, and coworkers here in the Kensington area. They can give you first-hand recommendations of the exterior house painters they have worked with and what they thought of the experience.

In addition to your conversations with other Kensington residents, go ahead and make that online query. Read some reviews on sites like Google, Yelp, Angie's List, or HomeAdvisor, and try to get a feel for the companies. Do not be alarmed by a couple of low reviews; they can happen to the best painting contractors. However, if you notice a pattern of repeated complaints from a variety of clients, be wary!

After doing this research, narrow down your list to 3 or 4 local painting companies, and it is time to begin the "interview" process.

Evaluating an Exterior Painting Company

The process of evaluating an exterior painting company is not exactly a "sit-down" interview in the way we typically picture. Instead, you request an exterior painting estimate from each company on your list, and then carefully observe their professionalism (or lack of it) during the process.

What should you look for?

Some good signs of professionalism include company vehicles, uniforms, and letterhead. Also look for timeliness and responsiveness in the company's communication.

When you speak with the company employees, they should be polite and speak in a way that sets you at ease. Ask them to see proof of their state licensing and their liability and Worker's Compensation insurance.

After you have received an estimate from each exterior painter on your short list, compare the details. Don't just look at the price at the end of each estimate. Instead, inspect the details like...

  • The level of surface preparation
  • Exactly what surfaces will be painted
  • Will primer be used
  • What paint quality will be applied
  • How many coats of exterior paint will they put on

If You Are Not Sure, Start with a Small Job

Once you have chosen a local painter, you will hopefully feel confident hiring them for a full exterior paint job. However, if you want to, you can hire them for a smaller project first, and see how it goes. For example, some companies offer a Painter for a Day service, which gives you 8 hours of expert labor on the project(s) of your choice.

" as I expected from your high-quality firm, the work was meticulous. Looks great. I wouldn't use or recommend anyone else for painting but Williams..."

Great work!


Mrs. S.

Thank you for providing us with two highly professional workers.

Dave:

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+.

Williams Professional Painting Delivered!

Hi Rick,

I just wanted to commend your team for doing a great job. Cristian and Walter were prompt, did a great job painting a very tall wall that I would be too scared to scale myself, and left everything clean. The colors are exactly as I wanted them, also thanks to Lisa's good work at matching the Ralph Lauren colors that I liked. I am very excited about moving into my new condo with colors that make it a space that is uniquely mine.

I am glad that your company was able to handle my job very quickly; this was absolutely no-hassle in terms of scheduling. Right now, that kind of service was what I needed, and Williams Professional Painting delivered. Please be sure to recognize Cristian, Walter, Lisa, and anyone else on the team who contributed to make this a seamless experience for me. And thank you for providing benefits for your employees and treating them well.

Best regards,

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.

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.

Thank you!

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.

A review for Dagoberto Rodriguez

Mr. Dagoberto Rodriguez did a wonderful job on the bedroom ceiling and wall. I am very pleased with his work. I would like to request him for any future jobs that I may have done by your company. Thank you so much and Have a Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year.

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,

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.

A Review for JB!

Good Evening!

Yesterday, JB from Williams Professional Painting came over to do a job for me.

He did an excellent job! He started the job on time, was very professional in his attitude, and finished the job in one day.

His work was excellent. My garage door and trim look much better.

Thanks again for the good work!

Take care,

Dear Mr. Williams

I would like to thank your staff, Milton Chavez, Lisa Reyes,Juan Maldonado and Eric Quinteros for their exemplary professionalism and outstanding work on my newly remodeled basement. Milton was totally up front with me every step of the way. He explained all additional charges which would be needed to remedy the newly discovered mold and to add crown molding which were not included in original contract. Lisa did a wonderful job helping me select paint colors. Juan and Eric arrived promptly every day, worked almost non-stop even when the temperature was an unbearable 106 degrees. I want you to know I will be putting my comments on Yelp and will be sending you a copy.

Again my sincerest appreciation for a job well done. I will be recommending you to my family and friends.

Sincerely,

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.

Thanks,

A Holiday Treat!

"Thank you for coming over to pick up the check; I appreciate it. And please tell Santos and Rodrigo how much I appreciate nice work – especially finishing the extra work in time to show off the whole house to my Thanksgiving company. That was a nice holiday treat!"


P.H

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.

Dear Williams Painting,

I want to let you know what a great job Ricardo Salas and Fidel did on my recent exterior painting project. Their work was excellent and they were very professional.

They checked with me to make sure the paint colors were correct and kept me updated as to where they were in the project.

I am a member of Consumers Checkbook and I will be happy to give your company a glowing review at the next annual survey.

Thank you so much, I will certainly be contacting you soon for more projects,
