Maintaining Your Scituate Home
From fantastic schools to beautiful seaside homes, the Scituate community takes lots of pride in their town. The homes in Scituate reflect a low-key yet elegant vibe that you feel the minute you come over the Scituate town line.
Scituate interior painting:
The residents of Scituate love to entertain and gather so their homes (and town restaurants) reflect this.
Interior painting inside newer Scituate homes:
The newer home developments in Scituate include lots of open-floor plan homes, where deciding on a color palette is a matter of choosing one or two colors and a few tones that work together nicely. Our color consultant has helped lots of our Scituate customers decide on a palette that allows an open floor plan to flow together, without feeling choppy.
Interior Painting to older and antique Scituate homes:
As an old fishing and sea mossing community, there are many historic homes and buildings in Scituate that require specific painting and repair know-how. We can handle horsehair plaster repairs, wallpaper removal, painting natural or stained moldings, and most other issues that you’ll encounter when repairing and maintaining your older or antique Scituate house. If your interior contains lead paint, we are licensed to work on your home safely – a big concern inside since lead paint can be a health hazard for your family.
Exterior Painting in Scituate:
We’ve painted date-boarded homes in Scituate and have even worked with the Scituate Historical Society to be sure our customer’s exterior colors were historically accurate. Our Scituate customers in newer homes have also worked closely with our staff designer (a free service to our customers) to choose colors that “feel” like Scituate, while still standing out as unique from their neighbors’ homes.
A checklist of things to consider when painting your Scituate home:
Rotted wood (trim, clapboards, shingles) are very common in Scituate because the salt-air and the harsh winter storms have hit Scituate particularly hard in the past decade. We have carpenters on staff that can take care of these issues before we paint. It is important that Scituate homeowners repair rotted wood on their home’s exterior as soon as they see it, so the rot does not grow larger and more costly to repair.
Most Scituate homes have at least some cedar shingles which require care and maintenance. Many Scituate customers like to allow their shingles to gray while other people like to add a coat of solid or semi-solid stain so their shingles don’t weather very much and remain newer looking.
Shingles often grow mold and mildew and need a powerwash using a mold-killing detergent. If shingles are constantly in the shade however, the mold or mildew will grow back, so it’s a good idea to trim shady trees to let the sun shine on your shingles to help dry them out and mitigate the mold.
Scituate has been battered by recent winters. This has caused a lot of wind, water and salt damage to exterior homes. Again, our carpenters can repair these issues.
Consider PVC boards when replacing rotted wood – especially if you’ll be staying in your home for a while. Although PVC is more expensive than wood, replacing rotted wood with PVC is a permanent solution that’s likely to pay you back if you’ll be in your home a few more years.
We don’t have to replace ALL your trim – just the rotted boards. This means that you can “inter-mix” PVC boards with the wood ones that are in good shape on your home. Once the PVC is painted to match the wood, you won’t know the difference (except the PVC won’t rot!). PVC is also available in many historic moulding profiles so they look even more authentic on your Scituate home.
The paint in Scituate takes a beating from the salt air and the harsh winters. It’s a good idea to apply a “maintenance coat” of paint or stain every 3-5 years to protect your Scituate home’s wood.
