Review by Gaithersburg, MD Homeowner
“Excellent work, great company, and I would absolutely recommend them. I would rate them A+ all the way.”
Klappenberger & Son is a painting company with a few good handymen who have been serving Montgomery County Since 1989.
- Who we are – Everyone in our staff has at least 5 years of field experience! Most of our staff has been painting for over ten years and have all gone through our training process.
- Reliability – if we say we are going to be there we are.
- Prompt – being on time every day is critically important and it’s the respectful thing to do.
- Respectful – Cleaning up and treating your property with respect is ingrained in our companies’ culture.
- Communication – poor communication is 99% of how all problems occur. We will keep you informed of any changes and will be in daily contact if needed on your job until it is completed. I final walk through will be done to make sure you are completely satisfied with our painting and handyman services.
But don’t take our word for it. We have been in Best Picks since 2013- 2020! To be awarded in Best Picks we must get reviewed by all of our customers every year! If we don’t score at least a 93% favorability score, we would not be eligible for Best Picks. Here is the unabridged, unedited results.

Money Saving Tips
Are you looking to paint your home’s interior while sticking to a budget? One budget saving option would be to not paint the ceilings if they are in good shape. A second way to reduce costs is to not change the color of the trim. Why? Because changing colors generally requires two coats instead of one in order to have complete coverage. Most premium grade paints can cover 100% so long as you are not changing color. Using a top of the line product like Sherwin Williams Emerald can cover in one coat. As an extra bonus, premium grades like Emerald, have excellent wash-ability, bond better, and are much more resistant to scuffing.
Are You Selling Your Home?
If it is time to move, we can take care of the painting and handyman projects that need to be completed to get the house sold. If the inside of your home needs to be painted, we can advise you to the most important areas that need to be painted so you get the biggest bang for your buck. If you have wallpaper that needs to be removed, we have the patients and skill to get it down in a timely fashion. We understand your two most important factors of getting your house ready are cost and time. Having the painting and handyman done under one company saves you both time and money. Below is a home we painted in Silver Spring.
Buying a Home?
Congratulations! We would be happy to advise you on the most washable paints, and proper sheens to fit your lifestyle. If you need your house painted on a stringent timeline, I am sure we can accommodate your schedule. Whether it’s handyman projects, or painting applications, we can work weekends if needed to get the projects done before the moving van shows up!
Are the colors on the walls having you feel uninspired?
Colors on walls really do affect our modes. If you are feeling a little tired of the colors on the walls and would like to try something new, Klappenberger & Son can help with a free color consultation and of course we can do the painting as well. Below is a picture from a Historic home we painted in Bethesda
Dependable, Skilled Exterior Painters
Whether your painting and handyman projects are government, residential, or commercial, we provide the expert exterior painting and handyman solutions throughout the Montgomery County and beyond. During your free consultation, we’ll visit your location to help determine which types of exterior paint options will suit your needs. We advise you on what types of products and processes will give you the longevity you demand on your home or building. In other words, we will educate you on: (Don’t worry, there are no tests or quizzes).
- What is the best primer for your substrate?
- What is the best topcoat for your substrate?
- Prior to painting, what is the proper moisture content of the substrate?
With over 30 years in the business, we know what has worked and what has failed. Let our expertise guide you on the proper process and products to have your home painted properly.
Painting Vinyl and Aluminum Siding
Many people are still not aware that aluminum and vinyl siding can be painted. The truth is both aluminum and vinyl make very compatible surfaces for paint to adhere. Vinyl and aluminum siding homes in Rockville and Silver Spring that we painted are lasting 15 years and counting. With the proper prep and paint we can transform your home with a completely new look for a fraction of the cost of replacement.
Over the last 5 years or so we have seen a real increase in the number of customers who want their exterior brick painted. If your brick and siding (wood, vinyl, etc.) are two different colors, it can make the house look “choppy” and “cut-up”. Having the brick and siding the same color can actually make the house look bigger with a more continuous flow. Knowing the proper masonry primers and topcoats to use, you can expect the paint job last at least 15 years or more. The home of the picture below did never looked small or choppy but it does look vastly different.
Choosing the best product for your deck or fence’s longevity is not one size fits all answer. The truth is, the best product to apply will need to be determined by what was on the deck previously, and its current condition. Also, how old is the deck? If the deck is older than 15 years, a solid stain might be the best solution. If the deck is less than 7 years old, perhaps a wood preservative would be the best product. We would be happy to give you a free evaluation of your deck and give you professional guidance on which product would best serve your deck and your lifestyle.
Whether you need you deck or fence power washed in Gaithersburg, or your entire house power washed in Potomac MD, we know the proper environmentally safe chemicals that will properly clean the surfaces without causing damage to your plants, or the environment. Aggressive power washing techniques can cause real damage to the surface you are ultimately trying to protect. Our best practice is to allow the environmentally friendly chemicals to do the work -not aggressive powerwashing!
Replacing Rotten Wood
Klappenberger & Son can not only replace your rotten wood with new composites that will never rot, but with new products that will hold the paint for up to 15 years without chipping or peeling. Below is a recent handyman and painting project completed in Rockville.
