Painting your Cohasset home’s exterior:

The houses in Cohasset span a wide range of architectural styles – we’ve helped paint them all. We’ve painted some of the earliest surviving Cohasset residences built in the 18th century, Italian Renaissance-style villas and ornate Victorian homes from the 19th century, many Cape-style houses constructed after WWII, and more contemporary homes as well. Each of these Cohasset homes has its own needs and we’re well-versed in maintaining all of them.

There are many homes in Cohasset that boast beautiful and expansive ocean views along the rocky coast. With these views comes exposure to harsh salt air and wind-driven rains, which wear down exterior coatings faster than inland homes. We use paints and stains especially formulated to better hold up to these conditions and provide a more lasting paint project in Cohasset.

While most Cohasset exteriors are constructed with wood, we also have experience with stucco homes and modern composite siding materials such as James Hardie or Boral. No matter what the exterior of your Cohasset home is made from, we have the experience and knowledge needed to coat it properly.

“All-white” homes are fairly common in Cohasset, but a number of our clients, even in older homes, are opting for subtle grays and other shades for their home’s exterior. Historic colors are our specialty as we’ve painted many antique and date-boarded homes throughout the South Shore and Boston area.

We’ve also worked directly with the Cohasset Historical Society to find an original color for your antique Cohasset home and or our free color consultant can help you to choose a new shade to change it up.

Weathered and gray cedar shingles are a traditional Cohasset look, but many of our clients also opt to have them coated with a semi-solid or solid stain for a more uniform look and to give more protection to their cedar shingle siding from Cohasset’s salt-air.

Mahogany decks are typical to many Cohasset homes. To keep them looking their best and to protect them, decks should be coated every 1-2 years. We usually suggest a translucent oil stain for the richest possible finish. You can read our guide to maintaining decks and porches for more information.

Painting your Cohasset interior:

Older and antique homes in Cohasset tend to have interior rooms that are nicely delineated. This means that while you still need to choose a harmonious color palette for the whole home, the nicely walled-off rooms allow you to be bolder than you would in a home with an open floor plan.

We have lots of experience repairing and painting horsehair plaster walls – a staple of lots of Cohasset homes.

Open floor plans:  Some renovated and newly constructed homes in Cohasset have open floor plans. With an open space, it’s important to make sure you choose colors that work well together. Our free color consultant Kate can help you decide on colors that work together to keep the “flow” of the open floor plan without looking “choppy.” It’s worth spending the time upfront with her to get the colors “just right.”

Removing wallpaper:  There is a lot of wallpapered rooms in Cohasset, but over time it might have faded or lost its style. Sometimes this wallpaper is hung on water-damaged horsehair plaster walls. We have lots of experience removing wallpaper from all wall types, and repairing the underlying wall.

Painting kitchen cabinets:  Many of our clients in Cohasset are opting to paint their kitchen cabinets rather than the expense of a full kitchen remodel. We use a particular process and product to deliver a sprayed finish for your kitchen cabinets.

Small store paint chips are not large enough to help you decide on a color!

We can order you (free!) 8” x 8” color samples from Benjamin Moore or Sherwin Williams. Just email us at [email protected] with the colors you’re thinking of and we’re happy to mail them to you for free – even if you’re doing the project yourself. We always suggest larger samples of actual paint in the rooms, in the sheen and color that you’ll be using. It’s best to do this yourself in advance of the painting project, so you’ll have time to see the colors in different lighting and make sure it’s just right. We can also brush on large paint samples on the first day of work before painting the whole house. It makes a lot of sense to spend time getting the color right up front.

How much will it cost to paint my Cohasset home?

We’ve got a guide to our pricing here. The best way to find out how much it will cost to paint your Cohasset home is to schedule a free quote and have us give you a firm price.

Cohasset Carpentry & Wood Repairs

Because most Cohasset homes are made of wood, about 60% of Cohasset homes need some kind of wood repair before we paint.

Some customers need trim and clapboards replaced, others need a whole side of their home re-shingled. To make this easy for our Cohasset customers, we have carpenters on staff who can repair the wood before we start painting.

Cohasset decks and porches

After the cruel coastal winters, Cohasset residents rely on their decks and porches to relax during our breezy summers. Maintaining the floorboards of your deck or porch must be done every two years to protect the boards from the hot sun and rain and keep them looking beautiful.

Not sure if your Cohasset exterior needs painting?

It’s often not obvious if your exterior needs to be painted. Lots of Cohasset homes may look okay to the eye, but aren’t necessarily protected from our New England winters and the salt air. Lots of people don’t remember the last time they painted their exterior or they bought the home and forgot to ask the previous owners when they last painted the outside of the house. Of course, we are happy to give you an honest opinion – we’ve been known to tell the Client they have a few more years of life in their paint job!

Take this 30-second quiz to find out if your Cohasset home has any of the signs of needing a coat of paint.

Is the paint included in the quote?

All costs are included in the quote we give you for your Cohasset home. We get the best pricing on the South Shore for Benjamin Moore and Sherwin Williams paint, so we pass that on to our customers. We are also happy to paint whatever brand you prefer or we can match any paint color to Benjamin Moore or Sherwin Williams which have paint formulas that are well suited for the Cohasset climate of saltwater, coastal wind, and the hot summer sun.
