Tips on painting your Canton home:
Exterior Painting to your Canton Home
If your home has rotted wood on it, our carpenters can replace the rotted trim, clapboards, windows, sills, and shingles before we paint. This one-stop shopping is something our busy Canton Clients have come to appreciate. It’s important that you replace all rotted wood before painting your home.
Shingle Siding Maintenance
Many Canton homes have cedar shingle siding which needs occasional maintenance. We can power wash your shingles to remove the mold and mildew and then restain them. We can even help you get that great Nantucket Gray for your shingles.
Lots of our Canton customers work with our free designer to choose colors that are cohesive and work with your existing furnishings. Kate will work with you in your home to choose interior and exterior colors that are “you” and will never push you to choose something eccentric unless you want eccentric.
Aluminum or Vinyl Siding Painting
A number of homes in Canton have been wrapped in vinyl or aluminum over the years, and the factory finish may be fading or chalking. You can tell if the siding is chalking by simply rubbing your hand against the finish – if your hand looks “chalky” afterward, you’ve got chalking. CertaPro Painters’ teams have experience with products designed to adhere directly to your vinyl or aluminum and since these materials are so stable, the paint finish lasts a long time. aluminum or vinyl. This is a cost-effective option if your siding is looking tired or you’re thinking of selling your vinyl or aluminum-sided home.
Some of our Canton customers have had us paint their brick homes to give their homes a less institutional look.
Wood Trim and Clapboard Painting
Since so many Boston-area homes are made of wood, and we paint hundreds of wood homes each year and have the knowledge to recommend the correct paint or stain for your Canton home.
Deck and Porch Maintenance in Canton
Horizontal surfaces such as deck and porch floors need extra attention in our harsh Northeast climate. The sunshine and rain that pools on deck floors, tend to fade deck boards faster than the vertical surfaces in your home. We recommend staining your decks every year or two to keep them looking great and also protecting your deck from the elements. Some of our customers have us on speed-dial every June so we can stain their porch in time for their July Fourth parties.
Carpentry on Canton Homes
Even your brick home will have some wood trim or windows that have probably deteriorated over time. We have carpentry teams that can handle anything from minor trim repairs (with wood or PVC) to whole house shingle or clapboard siding replacement if needed (with wood or composite materials). Visit our Carpentry page to read about wood rot and replacement for your Canton home.
Lead Paint on Canton Homes
Many of the houses in Canton were built before 1978, and many of them contain lead paint. Our staff and painters are EPA RRP certified to safely prepare and paint your older home that contains lead paint. This is important because working with lead is a health hazard and must be done “by the book.” Once your home is safely prepped, the acrylic bonding primers we use give us great adhesion to finish coats. It’s a law in Massachusetts that painters who work on houses with lead paint be certified.
The best exterior paint for Canton homes
Since Canton sits a bit inland, we recommend very specific paint brands and products that will give you the longest-lasting result on your Canton home.
Our painting crews are specially trained to paint your interior. They are used to working with your household routine and flow and make sure they’re not painting near the baby’s room when the baby is napping!
If your home has an open floor plan, it’s especially important to choose a cohesive color palette for the first floor. This way the rooms “flow” and don’t seem choppy.
If your home has rooms that are nicely delineated, it’s fine to choose colors that fit the mood of the room – a moody green for a study or a clean white for a mudroom. Our (free) in-home color consultant Kate is trained to help you choose colors that work with your furnishings.

We’ve worked with condo boards as well as individual Canton condominium owners to paint both interior and exterior surfaces. We’re happy to present a painting and/or carpentry bid for your entire condominium or just your individual home.
