Professional Painters in Marshfield, MA

Marshfield is one of the South Shore’s most scenic coastal towns, and the homes we paint in Marshfield reflect its unique and historic personality. While Marshfield homes are typically classic Colonials and Capes, we have painted all types of homes in Marshfield as well as a number of Marshfield condominiums and businesses.

Historic homes in Marshfield

We’ve painted date-boarded houses in Marshfield and have experience working with the Marshfield Historical Society to get the original historic colors “just right.” Lots of our Clients with newer homes have even worked with our color consultant to choose a historically-accurate color palette that is beyond the “basic beige” that South Shore builders often use.

Things we suggest thinking about when painting your Marshfield home
(even if you’re painting yourself!):

Rotted trim, shingles and clapboards are understandably common on Marshfield homes. Because our New England winters and salt air don’t play nicely with the wood on our homes, wood failure is common on Marshfield exteriors. If you see rotting wood boards on your home, replace the wood as soon as possible so you don’t have further or internal damage as the water continues to seep into the wood’s porous fibers. Our carpenters repair rotting wood on 40% of the homes we paint, so this is a very common issue that we can handle.

PVC vs. Wood replacement boards – We have carpenters on staff to replace rotted wood on your Marshfield home before we paint. We often replace rotted wood boards with PVC material so the rotting won’t continue to occur. While PVC materials can cost a bit more, knowing you won’t have to replace it again will save you money in the end. It’s also our general practice to only replace the rotted wood boards with PVC, which when painted is hard to distinguish from the existing wood on your home. Leaving the non-rotted wood in place while we only repair the wood that is rotten, can help to mitigate costs. Modern PVC is also available to match many historic moulding profiles to maintain your antique home in period style – we can even replace wood gutters with a direct-match PVC solution! If you plan to put your home on the market sooner rather than later, it can be more cost effective to choose less expensive wood materials to replace your boards. Here’s a post we wrote about replacing rotting wood on your home.

Salt air and stormy Marshfield winters: Since Marshfield is a coastal town, salt air and coastal storms present an issue that non-coastal homes don’t have to worry about. With this in mind, we use paints and stains that are specifically designed to help combat the wear and tear on your Marshfield home’s exterior. It can also be a good idea to add a “maintenance coat” of paint or stain every 3-5 years to protect the existing paints and stains on the shingles, clapboards, and trim.

Cedar Shingles – A Staple in Marshfield: Cedar shingles are so popular because they offer durability with a classic New England look. In Marshfield, most homes contain shingles often on at least one or more sides of exteriors. Many Marshfield residents like to let their shingles weather or grey over time – this is a classic look that gets better with age. We also can coat your shingles with a semi-solid or solid stain to protect them from the elements and prevent them from getting gray.

What’s that black stuff on my shingles? Yes, your cedar shingles are a ripe habitat to mold and mildew. We recommend power-washing them with a mold-killing detergent before coating. Of course, if your shingles are in a damp or shady side of your home, the mildew will grow back again. As a precaution, we recommend trimming trees so that there is some sun on your shingles at least part of the day and the house is allowed to “breathe.”

Excellent work and finished on schedule

Marshfield Interiors

Older homes in Marshfield have walls that nicely separate the downstairs rooms. Because the doors and walls separate the rooms so well, it’s not uncommon choose paint colors based on the function of the room (for example a relaxing tone for the TV room and a bright tone for the kitchen). Our crews have lots of experience with horsehair plaster repairs, wallpaper removal, painting natural or stained mouldings, and most other nuances of maintaining the antique homes that are common to Marshfield, Scituate and Duxbury.

Open-floor plan homes that are popular in the newer and renovated homes throughout Marshfield often need a single color in different shades and tones, in order to tie the space together as you move throughout the first floor, and up the stairs to the upper hall. It can be fun to choose a bolder color for a powder room or first-floor office, or let the kids choose (reasonable) colors for their own rooms.

Our color consultant works with our South Shore customers to help them choose colors that work with their existing furnishings, but still make their space feel fresh. None of our designers will push you to choose something you’re not 100% comfortable with, but they will give you the confidence to choose a palette that feels “just right.” This is a complimentary service we provide as part of our interior or exterior painting projects to make the process of choosing a color easier for you.
