At CertaPro Painters® of the South Shore and Boston, our trained professional painters will transform your commercial property into something you will be proud of.
Learn from our experience painting at dozens of schools and colleges:
Painting over summers, on weekends, or over school vacations is easiest on the staff and students:
We understand that the timeline of your painting projects is tight so we work over school vacations, nights or weekends, so we don’t interrupt the work of your students and faculty. Vacation and weekend work is done at NO extra charge.
Think about color-coding distinct wings in your school. This works great to delineate the art wing from the music wing, or to give whole grades their own colors.
Color coding works especially well in daycares and elementary schools where children can feel a sense of pride as they get older and become part of the “Yellow wing.”
Use color to manage the energy in each area or classroom.
While we’d never encourage you to paint whole classrooms in the following colors, using color as accents can help you manage student behavior:
Since red is a stimulating color, consider accenting your gymnasiums with it.
Yellow helps release serotonin for a better mood, so it can be used along with blue which enhances alertness in the classroom.
Pink is soothing and has even been shown to reduce heart rate – a great accent color for a nurse’s office.
Orange increases appetite and encourages speed – a great accent color for a cafeteria where kids usually need to eat their lunch a small window of time.
We recommend using scuff-resistant paint in high-traffic areas where students bump and lean against walls. These paints are so durable, they’re used in hockey rinks!
To prevent the spread of illness, CertaPro Painters can apply a paint that kills germs for about three years. This cuts down on constant washing and cleaning and is great for daycares and nurses’ offices where germs are prevalent.
Does your school contain lead paint?
Many buildings and homes built before 1978 contain lead paint. If you suspect your school contains lead paint, Massachusetts requires schools to hire a lead-certified painter. CertaPro Painters is a lead-safe renovator, and can help you safely plan a project where lead paint may be present.
Budgeting your school’s painting project:
We encourage you to call us at this stage – even if the painting is a long way off. We can provide accurate quotes that you can use in your budgeting process. Don’t guess – allow us to get you a firm price.
If you have any questions about interior or exterior painting of your school, daycare or college, call Dave at (781) 422-1018 or email him at [email protected]. We’re happy to help you even if you’re just in the budgeting phase and won’t be painting for some time.
Painting to Acoustic Tiles in Drop Ceilings
We restore stained acoustic ceiling tiles in your drop ceiling using a coating formulated with sound-absorbing qualities. This way, the ceiling looks clean and fresh, and the noise reduction qualities of the tiles are not compromised. Coating a stained drop ceiling is much less expensive than replacing the ceiling.
Brick Painting and Staining
We paint and stain exterior or interior brick surfaces. The decision to paint your brick is not easily reversible, so we'll help you decide if painting over your brick is the right decision for you. Most often, painting brick makes homes look & feel less "industrial" and more, well, like a home.
Commercial Exterior Painting
The Boston-area requires durable exterior paint coatings to make sure your building stays protected in our harsh New England climate. We paint all substrates including wood, stucco, aluminum, vinyl, cement block and cedar shingles.
Concrete Block (CMU) Walls
Painting a concrete masonry unit (CMU) wall (aka "concrete block wall") beautifies the building but also keeps it protected from moisture.
Corrugated Metal Painting
If your building has corrugated metal panels that need painting, we paint your steel roofs, siding, fences, sheds and decks.
It's important to remove graffiti and vandalism as soon as it happens. Otherwise, graffiti tends to keep attracting more vandalism. Our crews can remove graffiti on most surfaces using state-of-the-art solvents. And if we need to repaint the area after the graffiti is removed, we can do that too using an anti-graffiti coating that washes off with water.
Commercial Interior Painting
Our Commercial painters treat your business or multi-family community with care. We can schedule the painting at night or on weekends (at no extra charge).
Commercial Carpentry & Repairs
Because there is so much wood inside and on the exterior of Boston-area buildings, we have carpenters on staff to repair your wood before we paint. No need to hire a separate carpenter - we can handle your commercial painting and carpentry project from start-to-finish.
Drywall dents and holes of all sizes will be repaired before we paint, making your space look fresh and new.
Off-Hours and Weekend Painting at no extra charge
Can't shut down your business to have it painted? For no extra charge we can work around your business hours, painting at night or on the weekends.
Our designer will work with you in your office or business to choose colors that match your business' current interior furnishings. We can also help you choose colors for your building's exterior and are experienced getting exterior colors historically accurate. This means if you want to blend into the South Shore’s historic districts, we can make this happen. Color consulting is a free service to all of our Commercial Clients.
Our Boston Commercial division applies coatings that stay fresh-looking longer. We coat floors and walls with industrial and scuff-resistant paints that stand up to wear and tear.
Large painting crews to help meet tight deadlines.
As one of Boston’s largest Commercial Painting Contractors, we paint projects both big and small. Need it done in a tight timeframe? We can put a larger crew on the project so it's done faster.
We power wash exteriors before we paint them to remove any accumulated debris. Pressure washing is also available for exteriors that just need cleaning, but not painting.
