Dear Paul,

Ed and I are extremely pleased with the excellent paint job that was just completed at our home by Humberto, Lennox, Mario and Jose. The men were very professional with excellent painting skills, they were very careful of our home and items, they were very neat, they arrived on time every day, they cleaned up at the end of each day, placed the furniture back when the work was completed and finished the job when expected.

Our experience with the A.G. Williams Company has been excellent…beginning with you Paul and each of the men I mentioned that were on the job. We will recommend your company to our friends and family…and certainly will contact you for any other paint jobs we need.

Just want to say what a fabulous job your men did on our home. Really spectacular. They were all very careful, nice and meticulous.

Thank you!

Hi George,

I just wanted to let you know what a pleasure it was to work with you and your company. Your carpenters and painters did a great job, everyone I encountered was extremely professional and we could not have been more pleased. I would gladly refer you to any of my friends and we look forward to working with you on future projects.


Thank you to you and your fantastic painters! Our house has never looked better! Edwin and the crew of men were professional, polite, meticulour, organized, neat, highly skilled and hard working. Edwin also took the time each day to communicate what was taking place throughout the entire process. Liane was also conscientious and made sure to stay in contact as we scheduled the work. We could not be more satisfied and will be sure to let others know that A.G. Williams is the company to hire for their painting needs!


We purchased a fixer-upper apartment in a lovely pre-war building. The walls were in terrible shape but we intended to do all the painting and plaster work ourselves. Over time, It became painfully apparent that we were not up to the task. I joined Angie’s List, made lists and charts of the contractors that passed my search criteria and researched them online. I called and emailed for estimates. After getting in touch with close to 10 painting contractors the field was narrowed down to about 5. This was also going to be a complicated estimate, as it included several rooms and portions that would be the co-op’s responsibility. After meeting with 4 contractors and getting estimates from 3, we decided to go with A.G. Williams even though they were the most expensive. Liane from AGW came within days, got the estimate to us quickly. And she was also great with details and helping us finalize our color choices.

Dealing with the management company, applications, and waiting for approvals from the co-op board took some time but A.G. Williams was very patient throughout the process. Their estimate from October 2013 for our living room and foyer was for prep, 3 coats, (primer and 2 coats) ceilings and mouldings, baseboards, and window frames using Benjamin Moore Regal Paints $3640. We received a seasonal reduction of 20% for a total of $2912. An additional $700 was added after work began because the foyer needed a ton of extra work including a skim coat due to walls that had paint over wallpaper puckering, peeling, and it all needed to be scraped off. This old wallpaper was also hiding extremely deep cracks.

The work lasted a full 5 days with 2 to 3 men working each day. I can’t impress how hard Christian and his team worked to pull it all together and what a beautiful job they did! They left the place relatively clean each night so we could get around without trekking debris and they protected all our rugs and furniture. They took an absolute disaster of an apartment and made it whole again! He discovered that there had been only 3 layers of paint covering the almost 100-year-old walls! Our apartment had been poorly maintained. I remember walking around after they had left for the day and just breaking into tears because our place looked like it had been in an earthquake with all the deep cracks. A tremendous amount of plaster and other wall materials were used to fill all the cracks and skill to smooth the walls and ceiling. We also greatly appreciated Paul and Liane inspecting the job site when the job was finished to make sure everything was up to their high standards.

We had already seen the sort of poor quality of work we had gotten with the mediocre contractors our co-op had hired for a different project in our apartment and how soon the work fell apart. That is why we hired A.G.Williams. They have been around for over 100 years and they stand by their work! They sent the men back for a few necessary touch ups and paid a top notch electrical company to replace an outlet that was damaged during all the construction.
We will continue to use AGW and highly recommend them to family and friends! You get what you pay for!


Dear Art,

I wanted to thank you for a painting job well done in my house. Christian, his brother and the rest of the team did a fantastic job. Additionally, they were polite, tidy, respectful and loved my dog. It was a pleasure to have them working in my house.

Thank you for everything!


Hello George.

I just wanted you to personally know how satisfied I am with the recent painting work done in our house. Frank and Vladimir make an excellent team! They were professional, courteous, and above all showed how much they cared about the quality of their work. On numerous occasions Frank asked me to inspect the work they had done, and the pride he took in it was evident. He explained the process and always had time for questions. All materials were always neatly packed up and stored away at the end of each day. I couldn’t be happier with the results. I’ve had painting done by your company in the past, but I have to say Frank and Vladimir are by far the best painters I have come across.
Please thank them again for their amazing work – my whole family loves their new rooms!


Good Morning Doug,

I am so pleased with the job that was done at the church I wanted to let you know.

It is impossible to tell that the area was repaired. Not only was the patching and texture done expertly, but also the painting. The mixing of semi gloss for the door and trim blended in perfectly. The speed and enthusiasm that the two man crew started with, brought in all their equipment and tools, light, drop cloths, covered everything up and went to work amazed me. And your price was the best. It is a real compliment to you and your crew that you can do such superior work at competitive cost.

I would put you guys up for a Unit Commendation if I could find a category. Thank you so much from me and Stamford Baptist Church.

Semper Fi.

Dear Mr. Williams:

I want to thank your company, not only for the fine job they did in June painting inside 96 Highcrest to repair winter ice dam seepage, and again today, 10/14, working on weathered boards/chimney etc, but I also wanted to thank you for some emergency “medical” help from Mr. Jose Acevedo.

Last June 10 I took  a fall from a ten foot hill at the back of my condo at  96 Highcrest, breaking my jaw in two places and lacerating my chin, which was bleeding profusely.  I was stunned, and in no shape to drive, and my wife was not home.   Jose Acevedo had a crew working on Highcrest, and  immediately offerred to help, and he drove me in your van to a dentist on Bedford Road.  Before my emergency treatment was over that day and the next, I had several stitches, other treatment, and a jaw that was wired shut for eight weeks.

I didn’t know Mr. Acevedo’s name then, but today I spotted him dropping off some ladders for a crew member working again at 96 Highcrest.  We spoke, and now that I know who he is, I wanted to tell you as well how grateful I am for his help.

Of course Gil Carmichael and the Riverwoods Board base their contracting decisions on matters such as the excellent job your crew did matching the paint on my repainted ceiling to the adjacent ceiling, but nonetheless it is nice to know that we have people working on the property who are helpful and intelligent in responding to things that day-to-day life sometime throws our way.

Warmest regards


The house looks great. Nice work. I appears almost new, maybe better, and I am very glad I chose you to do the work. AG Williams made the process quick and easy. You started when you said you would start and you finished without delay (but never doing a rush job ”“ it was very thorough work).

The entire crew was friendly, professional, and always on time. They were careful to take care of the landscaping around the house and did no damage to anything. What was outstanding was some of their detail work, which I was not expecting, such as the wood structure around the rear air conditioning unit. It had been unfinished, and they not only power washed it, they also stained it. It looks great now. Also, the lamps around the house and on the front lamp post were painted and look better than new. They were a nice surprise. I can’t praise these guys enough. You have great workers.

Finally, your overseeing this project was first rate. You kept yourself involved with the project from start to finish and dealt with the inevitable issues that came up quickly and efficiently. The colors are perfect. You have a great eye. I’ll have to look for more projects for you!


I hired a painter for a day – for the touch ups on the woodwork all around the house, before showing it on the market. I also hired a crew to paint the exterior trim, and replace some window panes.
I’ve been using AG Williams since 2003. George is wonderful, and all his employees are craftsmen.
Everything went very well. The job went smoothly, and I was very satisfied with the results. I would certainly use them again, and recommend them highly.


Just wanted to tell you that Jose and his crew did a fantastic job. The co-op looks beautiful and all of our visitors say so. They cleaned up and left the place immaculate. We appreciate the work.

Although we had to delay the date several times due to my schedule, your people were extremely accommodating, and we finally settled on a date earlier this week. The person your company sent, Edwin, did an outstanding job on our kitchen and trim as discussed with you. He was accommodating, energetic, methodica, professional, and very personable. We are very pleased with the work he did to brighten up the area. Thank you, again, for an excellent job. It was a pleasure meeting you and dealing with you and A.G. Williams, and hope to see you soon.


They washed the exterior of house (power wash) and painted the concrete foundation showing below the siding

It went very well worth the price. Although the service seemed pricey the service and team were professional and delivered a quality service, and I will be using them again in the future for sure.


Interior painting and wallpaper removal. Very pleased with work performed. Painters were knowledgeable, courteous, punctual and neat.
