Tips on painting your Canton home’s exterior and interior:

Exterior Painting to your Canton Home

White clapboard home in Canton Massachusetts with black shutters and a blue front doorWe’ve painted dozens of homes in Canton – everything from capes, colonials, ranches, and condominiums.

If your home is antique, we can work with the Canton Historical Society to find a paint color that is authentic to your home.

Porch and Deck staining in Canton

Most Canton homes have a deck or porch. We can help repair any rotted boards and then stain the deck to restore its natural beauty.


If your home has rotted wood, our carpenters can replace the rotted trim, clapboards, windows, sills, decks, and shingles before we paint.

Our busy Canton Clients have come to appreciate this one-stop shopping. It’s important to replace all rotted wood before painting your home.  Painting over rotted wood will cause the paint to peel.

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.

Free Color Consulting at your home.

Many of our Canton customers work with our free designer to choose cohesive colors that 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.  This is a free service to all of our customers and makes a huge difference in the final result.

Aluminum or Vinyl Siding Painting

Many homes in Canton have vinyl or aluminum siding, 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 that adhere directly to your vinyl or aluminum, and since these materials are so stable, the paint finish lasts a long time on the aluminum or vinyl.

Painting is a cost-effective option if your siding looks tired or you’re considering selling your vinyl or aluminum-sided home.

Brick Painting

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, we paint hundreds of wood homes each year and know 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 pool on deck floors tend to fade deck boards faster than the vertical surfaces in your home. We recommend staining your decks often to keep them looking great and protect them from the elements.

Some of our customers have us on speed dial every June so we can stain their porches 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 contain lead paint. Our staff and painters are EPA RRP certified to prepare and paint your older home with 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 give us great adhesion to finish coats.

Massachusetts law requires that painters who work on houses with lead paint be certified, and CertaPro Painters of the Canton area has that license.

The best exterior paint for Canton homes

Since Canton sits a bit inland, we recommend specific paint brands and products that will give you the longest-lasting result on your Canton home.

Interior Painting for Canton homes:

Our painting crews are specially trained to paint your interior. They are used to working with your household routine and flow, and even make sure they’re not painting near the baby’s room when the baby is napping!

Choosing a cohesive color palette for the first floor is especially important if your home has an open floor plan.  This way, the rooms “flow” and don’t seem choppy.  Our free designer can help you choose that palette.

If your home has nicely delineated rooms, it’s fine to choose colors that fit the room’s mood – 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.

Kitchen cabinet painting – a less expensive way to remodel your kitchen:

If you want to brighten your kitchen or add a punch of color, painting your kitchen cabinets is a popular way to go.  We take your cabinet doors back to our warehouse to spray them – this way, no brush strokes or roller texture will appear.

Painting and Maintaining Interior Common Areas for Canton Condominium Communities.

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

Our Painting Prices

Check out this page for our average painting pricing in the Boston area.  We’re the only painter in our area to publish ballpark pricing.

When can we paint your Canton home?

We update this page weekly with our latest interior and exterior painting timeframes to ensure you understand how soon we can get to your project.

We give priority to painting projects with deadlines, so let us know if you’re having a party or selling your home, and we’ll do our best to paint for you in time.

We have a separate Commercial Painting Division, too:

Canton property managers, businesses, offices, religious facilities, retail spaces, condominium communities, and facility managers have worked with CertaPro for years.  We do our best to understand their businesses’ needs before picking up a paintbrush.

And if your Canton business needs to remain open while we’re painting, we offer night and weekend work at no extra charge.

Our commercial department also does a great job matching the paint coating to your property’s needs.  For example, we can use scuff-resistant paint in high-traffic areas and microbicidal paints that kill germs in medical settings, gyms, and daycares.

To schedule a commercial painting quote or to ask us questions about your commercial painting or carpentry project, call Dave Rowell at 781-422-1018 or email him at [email protected].
