Our thoughts on painting in Hanover:

Hanover’s early industry revolved around farming, small mills and shipbuilding, and you still see these rolling hills and small farms as you drive through the main streets and back roads of Hanover. Here are a few tips about painting your Hanover home:

Exterior painting of Hanover homes:

Hanover residents who live in antique homes often like to match their home’s original paint color. Even though your antique Hanover home might be faded, we can work with the Hanover Historical Society to determine your exterior original color and match that paint color exactly. Historic colors are our specialty as we’ve painted many antique and date-boarded homes throughout the South Shore and Hanover area.

Hanover is often affected by the harsh New England winters and coastal storms on the South Shore. This kind of harsh weather tends to wear away at the paint coatings on Hanover homes. Because of this, we use special paints and stains to give Hanover houses extra protection from these severe elements. We also tell our Hanover customers to keep their gutters clean so that ice dams don’t develop to cause leaking and interior damage. Our painters are happy to clean your gutters when they’re painting your exterior – just let us know if this is something you’d like us to do.

Many Hanover homes are constructed at least partially with wood and we have carpenters on staff to help replace rotted wood before we paint. We’re a one-stop shop so you don’t have to hire a separate carpenter before you paint. Our carpenters can do minor and major carpentry repairs from replacing a few shingles to replacing your entire exterior trim with PVC (like Azek). If you are painting yourself, you should never paint over rotted wood. Here’s a guide to rotted wood we wrote to help Hanover homeowners understand what to do if they see rotted wood on their Hanover homes (hint: call us!).

Cedar shingles are very popular in Hanover because they offer a classic New England look while being extremely durable. Many of our Hanover customers prefer their shingles to gray and weather over time and other customers ask us to apply a semi-solid or solid stain over them.

What’s that black stuff on my shingles? The black spotting on or underneath your shingles is likely growth from mold and mildew. We power wash using a mold-killing detergent, but since mold is relentless and tends to grow back in damp environments, it’s important to allow as much sunlight to hit your shingles everyday. This might also mean you should trim your trees to prevent lots of shade on the shingled sides of your Hanover home.

Decks of all wood types need to be maintained every 1-2 years. Take a look at our guide maintaining your decks and porches.

Because of Hanover’s proximity to the coast, we recommend our Hanover customers paint their homes approximately every 5-7 years. We often apply a maintenance coat of paint every 3 years, in between major paint jobs, to help protect and beautify your home.

Good preparation – the key to a great paint job on your Hanover home

We start with great surface preparation when we paint your Hanover home. This way the final paint coats stand up better to the New England winters and hot summers in Hanover.

Which exterior paint is best for my Hanover home?

The type of paint you choose makes a difference to the final outcome, especially because Hanover is near the coast and endures hot summers and harsh windy winters. For trim paint, we often recommend Sherwin Williams Resilience and Benjamin Moore Arborcoat solid stain for Hanover exteriors.

Maintaining your Hanover deck and porch

Most Hanover homes have decks and porches that need maintenance. Because your deck and porch floorboards hold puddled water, may be in direct sun and are walked on constantly, your horizontal floors need to be maintained more often than your home does. This means maintaining your wood deck floors every two years to keep them protected and beautiful.

Pre-1978 homes in Hanover may contain lead paint

If your Hanover house was built before 1978, you may have lead paint on and inside your home. Because we’re lead-safe renovators we understand how to prepare your home safely before and during the painting process.

How do I know my exterior needs painting?

It’s not always clear that a home needs an exterior coat of paint to stay protected, so we developed this 20-second quiz that will tell you if you need to paint (or not).

When can you start painting?

We update this page with our latest timeframes.  We give priority to painting projects with deadlines.  Let us know when you need your home or business painted and likely we can work you into our schedule.

Interior painting to Hanover homes:

Older Hanover homes usually have nicely separated first floor rooms which allow for a variety of colors. Our color consultant is trained to work with your taste and current furnishings to give you more confidence in choosing your final colors – and she’ll never push you into something that isn’t 100% “you.”

Open-floor plan home are also very popular in Hanover. Painting a first floor with an open floor plan presents the issue of determining where one color begins and another ends. Our designer on staff works with  customers to help ensure that your open floor plan doesn’t have competing colors that make the space seem choppy. Most times for open floor plans our designer suggests choosing choose one color in a few different tones, to keep the space flowing while making sure each room is clearly defined.

Antique homes in Hanover often have horsehair plaster walls.  Our painters can mend your plaster and drywall walls before we paint no matter if it’s a hole or just a ding.

Our color consultant is happy to work with your children and teens to choose a wall color that works for you both. We paint for lots of South Shore families with 12-year olds who are ready to give up the wall colors they’ve had since they were infants. We also understand the balance we need to strike between choosing a color that pleases the teen or tween, and one that blends nicely with the rest of your home.

Many Hanover Clients like us to paint their kitchen cabinets to modernize their kitchens without the cost of a full kitchen remodeling job.  This is a great way to make a huge impact in your kitchen without a complete remodel and is one of the projects our Clients tell us brings the most difference in the look of their home.

If you have any questions about painting or carpentry on your Hanover home, just email [email protected]. We’re here to help you, even if you’re doing the project yourself and just want some professional pointers.
