Choosing colors for your Duxbury Exterior:
Our exterior color consultant can help you choose colors that blend with the historic homes on Washington Street, or stand out in the many cul-de-sacs of newer “builder-beige colored” homes. Take a look at some popular Duxbury exterior paint colors in our house colors of the South Shore guide.
Historic homes are our specialty.
We’ve painted many date-boarded exteriors in Duxbury and are experienced in working to restore them to their original, historic color, even if the current color is faded and tired looking. We’ve worked with the Duxbury Rural and Historical Society to get the color of a Duxbury exterior 100% historically accurate and developed our own color fan deck called “Colors of the South Shore.” Our free color consultant can work with you to not only get the colors right, but to add the different colors you choose to your home in the correct places. If your older home contains lead paint, we are EPA lead certified to work on your home safely.
Duxbury exterior painting tips:
Harsh weather and salt air: Because Duxbury is right on the coast, salt air and coastal storms is an issue that can wear away at your Duxbury’s exterior, even if you live more inland towards Pembroke. Because of these factors, we use painting and staining products that specifically to help combat the wear and tear on your Duxbury home’s exterior. We tend to paint Duxbury house exteriors every 3-5 years to help protect the wood. Often the only thing that’s needed is a “maintenance coat” every few years to protect the original paint job and freshen up the wood on the exterior.
Rotted wood shingles, trim and clapboards are of particular concern for Duxbury exterior homes. Because the winters, coastal storm damage and salt-air are so harsh in Duxbury, wood rot is prevalent on Duxbury homes. It is important that if you see rotted wood on your home’s exterior, that you replace it as soon as possible, because you don’t want water to get inside the wood further and cause further damage to even more of your home’s exterior.
PVC vs. Wood replacement boards – We have carpenters on staff to replace rotted wood on your Duxbury home before we paint. We often replace rotted wood boards with PVC so the rotting does not occur again in that area. While PVC tends to be a more expensive material, knowing you won’t have to replace the board again saves money in the long run. We also don’t have to replace ALL of your (non-rotted) trim with PVC, so replacing a board here and there with PVC will not break the bank. With that said, we can replace rotted wood with PVC or wood depending on your budget and time-frame you plan to live in your home. Duxbury residents who are moving sooner rather than later, tend to choose wood over PVC because it’s less expensive. When PVC is added to wood trim in a few areas, it is 100% paintable and blends right into your home amongst the other wood trim. Take a look at this article we wrote on rotted wood replacement for more answers.
Cedar Shingle Maintenance: Shingles are a durable and impact-resistant material making them popular in Duxbury. Cedar shingles often cover whole homes or at the very least, one or two sides of Duxbury exteriors. Many Duxbury residents prefer to let their shingles “gray” over time and you’ll see this “Nantucket” look throughout town. Other residents prefer to coat their shingles with a semi-solid or solid stain to protect them and keep them from graying. Either way, we are experienced at shingle maintenance, powerwashing and staining. Because cedar shingles tend to grow plants (mold/mildew) you may see some black color on your shingles or behind them – this is an indication of plant growth. Power washing with a mold-killing detergent will wash off the plants, but if your shingles are in a damp or shady area, the mold or mildew will grow back. We often recommend trimming trees to reduce the shade and help slow mildew growth on your shingles.

Duxbury interior painting thoughts:
Duxbury residents love to entertain, and their homes tend to reflect this.
Open-floor plan homes that are popular in the newer and renovated homes throughout Duxbury often require a single palette of colors that blend together and don’t compete with each other, as you move throughout the open space.
The interiors of older homes in Duxbury tend to have nicely sanctioned and delineated rooms with very specific uses (dining, reading, cooking). Because older homes tend to have walls and doors marking the transition from one room to the next, painting colors to suit the room’s use and feel, without as much thought to the rest of the downstairs’ color scheme is perfectly acceptable. For example, we’ve painted a TV room in a relaxing rose tone and then painted a dark green study right next to it. Rooms in homes without open floor plans can handle different colored paints because the doors and walls separate the rooms so nicely.
Our color consultant can work with you to choose colors that work with your current furnishings and match the “feel” you are trying to create in your home. A free, in-home consultation with our designer is included in every paint job we sell, so go ahead and pull out those Pinterest pictures!

Power washing is a vital step in painting the exterior of your home. CertaPro Painters® of the South Shore and Boston uses the process to remove mold, oil and old paint so new paint absorbs into your surface better.
Stucco Repairs and Painting
As with any other home exterior, it’s important to maintain the stucco or EIFS (also known as synthetic stucco) covering your home. The CertaPro Painters® of the South Shore and Boston team is very knowledgeable in both repairs and painting related to these two materials and will work alongside you to determine what services your home needs.
Carpentry & Wood Repair
Because there is so much wood on South Shore and Boston area exteriors, almost 60% of our painting projects start with some sort of wood repair before we paint. Our busy customers appreciate that we can do the whole painting job for them, without having to coordinate an outside carpenter to repair rotted wood, clapboards, trim, deck and porch boards and replace shingles for them.
Vinyl and Aluminum Siding Painting
CertaPro Painters’ painting teams use products designed to adhere to aluminum and vinyl. Since the surface of aluminum and vinyl is more stable than wood, the paint finish holds up well when painted. This is a great and cost-effective option if your vinyl or aluminium siding is chalking or faded.
Great job. Nice, polite people.
