Serving Virginia, Maryland and DC since 1979

Les Eichhorn

I grew up in a large Christian family on a farm in Iowa. In school I was selected to be an American Legion Boys State Representative, and received the American Citizenship Award upon graduation from high school. After graduation, I enlisted and was proud to serve as an Air Force medic for the next 20 years.

My military medical career was varied to say the least, including many medical and surgical specialties. I was honored to have flown aero medical evacuation of wounded warriors out of Vietnam. I also spent a year and a half as an Independent Duty Medical Technician providing all medical care on remote sites.

While still in the Air Force I started working part time for a friend who had started a painting business (Williams Professional Painting). In 1989, as a Senior Master Sergeant, I was Patient Advocate for Malcolm Grow USAF Medical Center. I then retired from the Air Force and have worked for Williams Professional Painting ever since. I started as a painter, then progressed to foreman, production manager, estimator and now customer service representative. One of the greatest things about painting is seeing a great improvement in just a matter of days or even hours.

I have worked only two full time jobs in my adult life. Both have allowed me to meet and work for a vast number of people and accomplish a wide variety of quality work with integrity, pride, and without compromising standards.

I have been happily married for over 40 years, My wife and I both enjoy singing in the National Christian Choir (a 170 plus , non-denominational choir). We have three happily married daughters, and we enjoy our grandchildren and great grandchildren.

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.

Dave,
I know that I can speak for Lauren as well as our team here at Everly-Wheatley when I say a heartfelt “Thank You” to you and your team of professionals. We could not have asked for a more accommodating group of people to deal with and they went out of their way to minimize the impact on the services that we provide to our families. Please feel free to use our facility and/or Lauren or myself as references if you wish. We still walk around the facility and “WOW” seems to be the word that everyone utters. You all were as Tina Turner once sang, “Simply The Best”.

Les did an outstanding job. He is truly an "artist" of door refinishing. We will be pleased to pass on a recommendation for using Williams Professional Painting to all who ask.

The job was performed and completed to perfection, as I expected. This is the third time I have engaged Williams Professional Painting. Dave Williams and his work crews are professionals able to perform any repair and any improvement they are requested to make. I have used the company for inside and outside work; each time the result exceeded my expectations. The latest engagement required more repair than anticipated because dry rot had caused damage to the rake board and second-floor windows that could only be discovered when Les, an outstanding foreman, had performed a close inspection. All the carpentry work was done by Juan, a very skilled craftsman. Juan also repaired my wooden deck that had become very unsafe and presented some challenges. After the work was completed, Les double checked all the double-hung windows to leave them operational. I could not be more pleased than I am with the outcome of the repair I requested. I highly recommend Williams Professional Painting and will use them again anytime the need arises. They may not be the least expensive but are definitely the best in quality and professionalism.
