 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.

Our Happy Customers

Thanks so much!

Good Afternoon,

I hadn't gotten a chance to send a review of our experience with the WPP team for the house painting we recently had done. Lisa made great color recommendations for us, was patient as we tried to figure out what would compliment our space the best, and we were very happy with her service. The paint crew that we had, Dagoberto and Edison, worked quickly and efficiently. A week later, I still have not seen a stray drop of paint. They were punctual, professional and extremely courteous. Everyone on the WPP team was helpful and easy to work with and we won't hesitate to use your services again in the future. Thanks so much!

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.

Williams’ painters kept the workplace immaculate!

I can’t say enough about the care and attention to detail that Ricardo Salas and Enriquez provided in repainting a dozen old, peeling 6 over 6 wooden window frames on my home that were down to bare wood in places. I am confident that my 1941 windows are in good shape for many years to come. Williams’ painters kept the workplace immaculate and as a bonus they were great dog-watchers! I was able to let my dogs out the backyard while I was at work, because they were careful to close gates as they went back and forth so no escapes occurred. They treated my property as if it were their own.

Hi Rick, everything looks wonderful! Your crew was super nice and clean too! Thanks again for getting me in earlier. I really appreciate it. I'll be giving your name to everyone I know who needs a painter and drywall repair.

Thanks again!

Great Job!!!

I just wanted to say Thank You to Dagoberto Machado for doing such a great job painting my master bathroom. Dagoberto took great care to ensure that everything was covered and protected prior to painting. He worked all day and the results are just lovely. I have requested him specifically in the past for another inside paint job, and will not hesitate to call on him again. Great Job!!!

An Exterior Painting Project

I had Ricardo, Salas and Cesar plus a couple of other guys work on my son's house. They did an excellent job and worked very hard throughout the project. The foreman(Ricardo, I think) kept me abreast of the progress throughout while I was at the house. The paint job is excellent.

Jose and I did not communicate well during the estimation process. The estimate that I received was not the total amount (excluding additional carpentry work needed) I expected it to be. I was shocked when I saw the final bill. The terms of agreement also showed that I would receive two coats and I did not. I was told that was only true for the pvc boards and door, that the paint was so good in covering that I did not need two coats. When I asked the foreman(Ricardo, I think) about painting the mullions he said they normally do not do those. I told him to call Jose and Jose confirmed that they would be done. So, the job was excellent but the estimation process did not go well. I'm sorry about this because Jose is a very nice guy and I enjoyed working with him, and he was concerned and respectful. I was told that Williams would replace two facial boards that go on the roof area free of cost. Thank you very much.

Overall, what is most important is that you did a great job and treated me respectfully and the job diligently. I hope the same can be said for me.

Please take special note that all the painters on my job worked hard and diligently throughout.

Thank you.

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.

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,

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,

Rick:

Thanks for your follow-up note – and thanks for the job. Les did a truly excellent job of managing this project, including his own efforts wielding the paintbrush. As a team, Les, Ricardo and Eric were professional, conscientious and diligent painters. All of the work was done with care and attention to detail. The team showed up and finished the job on time as projected. They cleaned up the job site perfectly.

We will not hesitate to recommend your firm to friends. Moreover, this winter we are likely to contract for some inside painting work, and will contact you about that when we are ready.

Best regards,

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.

Williams Professional Painting Review

I have had Dagoberto Machado perform work at my house twice in the recent past. I want to compliment him on his punctuality, professionalism, and quality of work. He holds himself to a very high standard, and it is reflected in his painting. He is thorough and takes the time to explain the work to me. I look forward to using him again for my next Williams painting job!
