 Spotting an Excellent Exterior House Painter in Sterling, Virginia

When a mechanic or a heart surgeon does excellent work, you can't tell just by looking. Instead, you have to wait for the results to prove themselves over time. With a chef or a barber, on the other hand, the quality is immediately apparent. Which is the case with exterior painting companies? Can you judge a Sterling house painter's quality by the immediate results, or do you need to wait for the long-term outcome? The answer is, Both!

If a Sterling painting company does their job well, you can see the quality right away in the beauty of the finished results. However, the other test of their craftsmanship is in the longevity of the paint job, which takes multiple years to manifest itself.

Short-term Results in Exterior Painting: What to Look For

One key aspect of exterior painting is the surface preparation; house painting must begin with a clean, sound surface. As you look at the finished paint job, can you see signs of wood deterioration that were simply painted over? Was there any dirt or debris on the surface that is now trapped under a layer of paint? These are signs of sloppy exterior painting.

On the other hand, quality workmanship shows up when your Sterling home has smooth, clean surfaces with solid materials underneath.

Another aspect of excellent exterior painting is straight lines at all the edges, and uniform color coverage. This shows that the painting was done with proper methods, quality paints, and sufficient coats of exterior paint.

The end result of a great exterior painting project is that your Sterling home looks fantastic, both from far away and upon closer inspection!

Long-term Exterior House Painting Results

Evaluating the true value of your exterior painting project will usually take 5 to 7 years here in the Washington, D.C. region. That is the typical length of time that an exterior paint job should last, if it is done well.

When the exterior house painter does proper surface preparation, uses quality paints, applies primer where necessary, and provides enough layers of paint, the results should look just as good half a decade later! Signs of aging paint include cracking, fading, peeling, bubbling and chalking. The first of these signs may start to appear somewhere after 5 years (though in some cases, it may take up to 10). As soon as any signs of paint failure begin to appear, it is time for new paint, before those symptoms become serious.

A Review for an excellent job.

We recently had our ceiling painted in the front entry hall (February 11th).

Juan Maldonado did an excellent job. He was on time, the work area was spotless and the ceiling looks great.

As always we've enjoyed have Williams take care of our painting needs.

Williams Professional Painting

Hello,

We are writing to express our thanks to Dagobarto for doing such a wonderful job painting the room we plan to use as a nursery for our new baby.

The prior paint job was not great and he did a fantastic job putting on the new color and trim, as well as cleaning up the mess that was already there. He was prompt, attentive, and professional and my husband and could not be happier with the results. The nursery looks fantastic.

Thanks again and we will certainly consider your company for paint work, and of course recommend your business to others we know.

Thanks,


P. & D. A.

Outstanding work by Juan Maldonado,

Great job by Williams Professional Painting on some recent repair to our front portico (carpentry, roofing, and painting). Outstanding work by Juan Maldonado, who was the foreman and craftsman who completed the work.

They always picked up and cleaned up before leaving for the day

Alvis,

Please pass on to the appropriate people at Williams how pleased we are with the painting of our house at 8977 Fort Hunt Rd. Christian and Daniel were terrific, very professional, courteous and did an outstanding job. They always picked up and cleaned up before leaving for the day and made sure we understood the order and progress which had been made. Christian managed the work in an organized fashion and made certain we were satisfied with their work. They are both an asset to the company.

Sincerely,


L.S.

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,


K.A.

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 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

Well done, Juan!

" I want to complement Juan Maldonado for his outstanding craftsmanship and professionalism while installing a back splash in our kitchen. It will certainly add value and brighten the appearance of our home. Thank you"


Mr. T.

The house looks beautiful!

Bob and I are very pleased with the outcome of our painting project. The house looks beautiful. Many of our neighbors have seen your work and have been very impressed. Hopefully some more work will come your way.

We want to give a big thanks to your crew. Lisa was so helpful in the color selections. She also answered many questions on other ideas and always led us int he right direction. Walter and his guys were amazing. They are true professionals and take pride in the work they do. We really appreciated all the time they spent on prepping our walls. They corrected so many of the builder's mistakes. The crown molding that was added really finishes off each room. Give a special thinks to Walter, Carlos, Edwin, Gustavo, and Daniel. Tell the guys that our dog Maisie misses them and Walter can visit her anytime.

We are planning on contacting you again in the Fall to finish off our painting project. That will be the two upstairs guest bedrooms and bath and the garage.

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.

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.

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.


P.B.

The high standards I have come to expect from Williams

Carlos and another man whose name I can't recall did a two-tone paint job on our never before painted garage. They carefully taped around all the hooks and shelves in the walls and did a perfect job. They covered everything with tarps and when they were finished the garage was exactly as we wanted it and there was not a stray speck of paint anywhere it shouldn't be.

The work of Carlos and his partner met the high standards I have come to expect from Willliams. Professionals like them are the reason we always turn to Williams Professional Painting first.

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.
