A client’s comments on Kitchen Cabinet Painting:
“My husband and I had our kitchen refreshed last week and we couldn't be happier with the results... We had our still-in-pretty-good-shape kitchen cabinets painted white. I can't say enough good things about Rich Winkler Painting and Decorating, the company we used for the cabinets. Rich and his crew demonstrated the utmost professionalism and the cabinets look great.
I promise I'm not a spokesperson for the company; I'm just an extremely satisfied customer. Hopefully one of your readers will find this information helpful.”
With Winkler Painting, you can count on the best painters working on your home. The staff is highly trained and skilled craftsmen who are full time Winkler employees. Often other painting companies hire temporary help to cover their jobs, but not Winkler. Most of the staff has been with Rich Winkler for five to twenty years.
Winkler has a large staff so they can cover any size job. Winkler has four professional crews, two that work in Washington D.C. and Maryland, and two crews that work in Northern Virginia. The crews are keenly aware that keeping your home clean is of utmost importance. They cover everything with fresh plastic drop cloths, and each of the four trucks is equipped with a vacuum cleaner to clean up jobs. Each crew has a foreman, and each foreman is as particular about the work as Rich is.
Rich Winkler has been painting houses, inside and out, since 1971. He started while he was in college, and now he has been in the business for 34 years.
If you ask Rich why he decided to have his company specialize in top quality work, as opposed to doing inexpensive and lower quality work, Rich will explain that he is a perfectionist. If you use a company that does lesser quality work and uses lower quality paint, you may need to have a repaint job in two or three years. Rich says to expect his high quality paintwork to last six or seven or eight years.
Winkler is proud of the expert wallpaper hanger and the expert carpenter he provides when necessary.
Rich Winkler is happy to provide a free estimate with no obligation. Winkler requires progress payments along the way, with the balance due upon completion.
The old paint surface must first be power washed to remove dirt, mildew and algae. This will help insure that the new paint will stick.
A proper paint job requires that the old paint be stripped where needed. Anywhere there are paint problems the Winkler painter must strip down the surface to the bare wood. A Winkler paint job is an investment in your property. Rich explains that once you have your surfaces stripped down to the bare wood, you will probably not have to strip like that again in your lifetime.

"Rich Winkler's work is truly exceptional. Four years ago his crew restored the interior of my 135 year old home by stripping over 50 years of paint and hand sanding. It still looks as good today as it did four years ago. In the summer of 2008, Rich's crew restored the exterior of my historic home by stripping years of paint, hand sanding, and replacing the wood in numerous places. I had absolutely no damage to the exterior of my home after the historic snow fall of the winter of 2009/2010 and I attribute that to the extraordinary exterior restoration of Rich and his crew. I cannot recommend Rich Winkler high enough."

"After living in our home for nineteen years, my wife and I finally had the interior of our home painted by Richard T. Winkler, Inc. Necessary as the painting was, this was something we had been facing with some dread. While preparing for and living through a major paint job is perhaps not the most pleasant experience on the planet, I can’t imagine how we could be any happier with the job itself.
"In preparation, we were guided by you to consult with a color specialist who proved invaluable and helped us immeasurably in guiding our choices, with particular recommendation about things that would not have occurred to us – such as considering how the colors in adjacent rooms worked together, and suggesting lightening the colors of angled walls alongside dormer windows.
"The team of painters, led by Amilchar, are not only the hardest-working craftsmen I’ve ever encountered, they are true artists and artisans. In preparing rooms they have been meticulous in moving and protecting furniture, and carefully covering and taping cabinets, doors, closets, and stairwells to keep all spaces not being worked on as clean and dust-free as is humanly possible. Repeatedly, we have come upon them while they’re sanding moldings, patching and re-plastering old cracks and imperfections, scraping away old paint from various metal fixtures and hardware. Things are continually brought to our attention that we had not considered; the decisions are always ours, but if asked they have clear and logical recommendations and suggestions. Amazingly, when a room is completed, it is cleaner than it has ever been, as they dust and clean furniture before returning it to its original spot – how they remember so exactly where everything is to be returned, I’ll never know (including stuffed animals on top of a bedspread).
"The painting itself is of the finest quality – everything primed, multiple coats applied, no streaking, perfectly even, beautifully finished. I simply cannot recommend your firm or the work you do any higher. You have given us a new home!"
