“Klappenberger & Son is fantastic. The painters, the cleanup, and the work were all wonderful. It’s an excellent, excellent company. They painted all the woodwork, all the doors, everything in my house, and then they did some exterior work for me as well. A+ is what I would give them. They were just wonderful.”
“Klappenberger & Son did a first-rate, excellent job all around. They put in drywall, and they painted a brick wall, a stone wall and a concrete floor. I’d use them again in the future. They cleaned up well after the service, and they were very polite. I’d give them an A.”
“I had a very positive experience. Klappenberger & Son was very timely and did very good, quality work. The painted the entire house’s exterior, and twice they have also painted my significantly large wooden deck. I’d give them an A+ on everything.”
“They did some work for me before. Since I recommended them to a neighbor two doors over, I would say it was excellent work. They did painting and a whole bunch of other stuff outside, replaced a bunch of ceiling tiles in the basement, and did some other miscellaneous jobs, too. I saw the workers that did the work, and I got the impression that they were very professional. They knew what they were doing, and they cleaned up after themselves. They can have an A.”
“They did interior painting. The technicians were terrific and very professional. They cleaned up well after themselves and the customer service was great. I would give them an A+.”
“They were excellent. They painted my whole house, and I saw it right away after they painted it. They did real well with the time frame. There were a couple of questions about how soon we could get it done, but they did it when I asked them to do it. Their people worked with me. There were a couple of mistakes that were made, and they went back and fixed everything. I was real happy with the work they did. They’re just professional, and I liked the way they went about doing what they did. A+.”
“They did some exterior painting and some interior painting for me. The cleanup was excellent. They get an A+.”
“Klappenberger did the exterior. They’re very professional. They did what they said they were going to do, and I was very impressed with the company. I felt like they cleaned up well after their service. They did the job in a reasonable amount of time, as well. They were very thorough. I’d give them an A.”
“They painted the aluminum siding exterior of my house. I would say the quality of work was very good. The workers were very professional, and I would use the company again. They completed the work in a reasonable time frame. The customer service was very helpful and very responsive. I’d give them an A.”
“We had a deck painted and stained, and we’ve had our house power washed. I guess they power washed a couple times, and I guess that’s it. The quality of the work was very nice. The owner, David Klappenberger, is just a really great guy and knows a lot about the community. He’s been serving our little community for years. Just very down-to-earth. Honest. Doesn’t nickel-and-dime you. Very persuasive. I would give them an A. I would highly recommend them, and I’ve already referred many people to them.”
“They did interior and exterior work. I’ve been going to them for almost ten years. They have always been my go-to person. I have been so satisfied with the quality of painting and cleanup; I wouldn’t keep coming back if I wasn’t. He’s responsive when I email him, and he comes out personally to talk to me. We go over everything so that it gets done. I’ve used him both in my residence here and also another home that we had rented out, and he recently helped me—on very short notice—get some things done in the house. He did everything very efficiently and to my satisfaction. He’s definitely and A+.”
“Excellent work, great company, and I would absolutely recommend them. I would rate them A+ all the way.”
“The last time, they just did a powder room painting. The quality of the work they did was good, and I would absolutely use the company again. It was one worker. He was good, and we’re happy. We’ve used the company more than once. They did another paint job the year before, and I think that was when they did a good portion of the house. They did a good job then. I would give them an A+.”
“While I have no doubt that I could have gotten the work done more cheaply, there were four factors that led me to choose Klappenberger: the implicit testimonial in Long and Foster Property Management’s using you, the convenience of the resulting key box access to the property, the “one-stop shop” for the repairs and painting, and—most of all—the suggestions and attention to detail from Dale during the estimate walkthrough led me to believe that the quality of the work would justify the cost—and I was not disappointed.”

“I am pleased to be able to recommend Klappenberger & Sons to the Embassy of Brazil. Maryland National Capital Park and Planning contracted with Klappenberger & Sons to repair and paint all of the windows on one of our historic mansion during May and June of 2019.

Riversdale Mansion is a National Historic Landmark having been deemed to have national historical significance. Naturally we are cautious when allowing contractors to work on this important building.

Klappenberger bring a technical expertise to this work that is unmatched in this region. As we began this project the on-site foreman reported the results of testing the moisture content of the wood to be certain that the paint would adhere correctly. Samples were prepared and the color was matched quite precisely before any painting began. They kept me informed as to progress at each step displaying tremendous knowledge about the materials that they were using and the correct surface preparation to achieve professional results. When discussing paint, primer, caulk and their application the foreman on-site was able to explain in tremendous detail why they chose each product for this specific application. The project was delivered on time and on budget and with results that will protect and preserve this important building for decades. In these aspects I felt that Klappenberger & Sons displayed a level of technical knowledge and expertise that I have not found in other painting contractors.

As this painting project was being executed we were continuing to run tours of the mansion. We felt that this was acceptable due to the high level of professionalism displayed by Klappenberger & Sons. The painters were quiet, respectful and neat. We kept the painters informed about scheduled events, and were pleased that the site was meticulously cleaned each night and important nighttime events were not interrupted. Their professionalism was evident as they organized, deployed and executing the project on schedule. I expect a level of professionalism from all contractors, but felt that Klappenberger & Sons displayed a sensitivity to their environment that allowed us to continue operations while they worked.

In short, Klappenberger & Sons are the most professional, knowledgeable painting contractor that I have worked with in the last 20 years. We are more than satisfied with the results and will use Klappenberger & Sons in the future when we have an important painting job.”

“We were very happy with what they did. We’ve actually used them twice before now. We’ve always had a good experience with them. The only thing unusual this time was it was exterior painting, and it was affected by the weather. It took some time, but otherwise it was great. I’m going to give them an A+.”
“They painted a few rooms in the house, and the customer service was good. We have a contractor we were using, and Klappenberger was recommended by them. The cleanup was good. It took longer than expected. I would give them an A+.”
“They did exterior woodwork and painting. I liked that they were on time and had good workmanship. I would give them an A+.”
“They did interior painting for our rental property. I think it was around 2,000 square feet. The quality of the work was very good. I met the workers briefly, and they were polite, friendly, and professional. I don’t’ remember any issues with the cleanup at all, and I would use them again. A+.”
“They came out in the time period that they were supposed to. They finished up when they said they were going to, and they cleaned up real well. I thought they did a very good job, and I would use them again. They deserve an A+.”
“They painted my entire house. They did a great job, and I really appreciated the work they did. I’ll give them an A+.”
“They did exterior painting. I had a very good experience with them, and they did a very professional job. I’m pleased with the results. I would call upon them in the future if I had need for additional services. I would say an A.”
“They just painted my outside trim. The trim looks great because they found out that the wood was rotten when they started to paint it, so it had to be replaced. So they ended up replacing the wood for me and making the trim look really good. They were really great. They did everything we requested. They even went beyond what we wanted and came back and fixed a couple spots. They were always on time. The workers were really good and courteous. They took all their empty paint cans, cleaned everything up, and took it with them every night. I rate the company an A.”
“Overall we were very satisfied. We have a house that has a lot of exterior wood trim that had deteriorated, so there was some of it that needed to be replaced. They did that, and there was some that had cracks and so forth that needed to be filled, and then the whole thing had to be painted. Everything turned out good overall. We were very satisfied.”
“I liked that they followed the schedule, their price was as promised, and the quality of the work was excellent. In terms of painting, I think the biggest jobs were staining decks and the walk down, painting siding that had to be replaced on the front of the house, and repainting our kitchen cabinets. So they did three different types of work, and they pretty much delivered as promised. I would give them an A.”
“They did the sealing on a fence we had installed. Their estimator was very good in not only coming up with a reasonable price, but he also pointed out some problems with the fence and actually went back to the contractor who built the fence and encouraged them to make the repairs, which was very, very helpful to us. We were having that horrible rain during the spring, which made scheduling virtually impossible, but the office manager at Klappenberger was wonderful. She checked back with us every week until we finally had four or five days dry in a row to make arrangements. They came on the assigned day and did the sealant. I would give them an A, and I also got a copy of Best Pick Reports, which I found helpful.”
“They did the painting very neatly, and price was reasonable. The people were good to deal with. The quality of work was good, and I would use the company again. I’d give them an A+.”
“They were punctual and professional. The estimate, in terms of the price and the scope of the job, is what they delivered. Their work was quality work. They painted several rooms in the interior and stained a deck. I called them and got an estimate from them and two other companies. I would give this company an A.”
“Klappenberger did work for my business. They were fine—very well priced and very quick and efficient. It was my first time using them, and I would use them again. I would give them an A.”
