Interior & Exterior Painting in Fairfax & Loudoun Counties

There are a lot of painting companies throughout Northern Virginia and finding a professional painting company that is reliable and does quality work at a fair price can be very difficult and frustrating to find.  We were founded in 1989 and have had the pleasure of painting 1000’s of interior homes.  Since 1989 we have incorporated some processes that have separated us from other painting companies.

Interior Best Practices that separate our painting company from the competition

  • We sand spackle spots with a vacuum attachment to drastically reduce dust.
  • We only hire painters and carpenters with at least 5 years’ experience.
  • Once trained, we review best practices every 6 months.
  • Our crews don’t jump around from project to project. We keep the same crew from beginning to end.
  • The estimator is the project manager and will be in contact with you through-out the project.
  • Our prices are typically calculated using square footage and linear pricing algorithms to estimate accurate and fair pricing.
  • Your price is fixed. We guarantee that your price will not increase unless you authorize additional work!

“Worked hard to accommodate my schedule, finished the work when promised, and most importantly the job was well done.”

Painting Kitchen cabinets: For a fraction of the cost of replacing your kitchen cabinets, you could have them freshly painted and get some new handles or knobs as well! If your cabinets are structurally sound than this could be a great option. The picture below shows a picture of some cabinets we painted in Reston VA. If you watched some DIY shows and have seen the dramatic results of painting your cabinets two different colors than we are on the same page. Whether you want the base cabinets or perhaps the island painted a second color

Exterior Home Painting Services

Protecting the exterior surfaces of your home is obviously extremely important. Just scraping and painting the surfaces will rarely give you maximum performance you need in Fairfax or Loudoun Counties. Over the years, we have had the opportunity to monitor our processes and materials we have used to see what primers and paints have held up the best. What caulks have the most flexibility? And what wood epoxies and wood fillers expand and contract with wood. This knowledge has carried us to do work at some pretty impressive locations. Locations like the Pentagon, Smithsonian, NIH, and the White House.

Exterior Historic Restoration Work

In 2019 we were asked to paint a Federally Registered Landmark called the Riversdale Mansion in PG County MD.

Power washing Services:  Proper pressure washing, also called power washing, is not always as simple and easy as one might think.  Using the improper amount of pressure (PSI) can cause real damage to surface you are trying to protect!  Klappenberger & Son uses low pressure but high volume of water in combination with environmentally friendly products. The combination of a high volume of water with the right combination of environmentally friendly chemicals will properly clean any surface without causing any damage to your plants or lawn.  Our motto is to let the chemicals do the work and not the force of the power washer.  Weather you need your deck power washed and  stained in Mclean VA, or your house properly cleaned to and painted Leesburg, call Klappenberger & Son for a free consultation.

Deck & Fence Sealing  :   Knowing what to apply on your deck or fence to get maximum protection and longevity is not always inherently obvious.  I’ve seen more decks and fences receive the wrong products and quickly fail. We are experts in sealing and preserving decks and fences.  I would be happy to advise you on the pros and cons from clear wood preservatives to solid stains.

Lead certified:  Klappenberger & Son is a certified lead safe painting company serving all of Northern VA.  This means we are trained to know how to work with lead paint in a safe manner.  We are certified to work on homes with lead paint and properly encapsulate it.  If you rent a house and it has been tested positive for lead, we would be happy to encapsulate the areas in order for it to pass inspection.

However, we cannot certify that your house is free of lead.
