Historic homes in Marshfield – our specialty
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 Marshfield Clients with newer homes and cul-de-sac developments have even worked with our color consultant to choose a historically-accurate color palette that is beyond the “basic builder’s beige” that South Shore builders often use.
Suggestions for painting your Marshfield home:
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 Marshfield 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 about 50% of the homes we paint in Marshfield, so this is a very common issue that we can easily handle with you having to hire a separate carpenter – we are a one-stop company to make it easier for you!
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 them 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 lower the overall cost to you. Modern PVC is also available to match many historic molding 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.
Salt air and stormy Marshfield winters: Since Marshfield is a coastal town, salt air and coastal storms present an issue where the climate will affect the longevity of the paint job. 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. Marshfield homes need to be painted every 5-7 years to make sure the wood remains preserved. 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 your cedar shingles from the Marshfield elements and help prevent them from getting gray. Stains are protective as well as beautifying as stains seep into your cedar shingles to protect them.
What’s that black stuff on my shingles? Yes, your cedar shingles are a ripe habitat for mold and mildew. We recommend power-washing them with a mold-killing detergent before coating them with the stain. 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 shining on your shingles at least part of the day and the house is allowed to “breathe.” The more sunlight on your cedar shingles the better.

Marshfield Interior Painting ideas:
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 forest green for the study and bolder color for the dining room). Our crews have lots of experience with horsehair plaster repairs that are so common in Marshfield, wallpaper removal, painting natural or stained moldings, and most other nuances of maintaining the antique homes that are common to Marshfield.
Open-floor plan homes that are popular in the newer neighborhoods and developments and renovated homes throughout Marshfield often need a single color in different shades and tones, in order to be cohesive 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 and 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. Our designer will never 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.

Kitchen Cabinet Painting
Painting outdated kitchen cabinets makes your home instantly more modern, and tends to provide a huge "boost" to the feel of your entire home. Our complimentary designer helps sample cabinet colors that look great with your current kitchen counters.
Popcorn Ceiling Removal
While popcorn ceilings had their time on top trends lists, they are rarely seen in modern homes. Removing a popcorn ceiling yourself can be extremely difficult. The crew at CertaPro Painters® of the South Shore and Bostonis trained to remove popcorn ceilings in an effective way that will leave your ceilings feeling fresh. Because popcorn ceilings trap dirt and dust, this is a popular project for allergy sufferers!
Power washing is an important first step in painting the exterior of your home's surface. CertaPro Painters® of the South Shore and Boston can power wash your home to remove mold, mildew, oil, salt, and old paint so your new paint or stain lasts longer in our harsh New England climate.
Shingle Maintenance and Staining
Cedar shingles are a staple of our area and require occasional power washing & staining to keep them beautiful & protected. We also specialize in staining both cedar shingles so they reach that fantastic "Nantucket Gray" color.
Stucco Repairs and Painting
It’s important to maintain the stucco or EIFS (also known as synthetic stucco) that covers your home. CertaPro Painters is knowledgeable in both repairs and painting related to stucco and EIFS, and will educate you in determining the best approach to repairing and painting your stucco home.
Carpentry & Wood Repair
With so much wood on our exteriors, 60% of our painting projects start with wood repair. No need to coordinate an outside carpenter to repair rotted wood, clapboards, trim, deck boards, & replace shingles. We can also add polish to your interior with wainscot, dental & crown molding, baseboard & door casings.
Vinyl and Aluminum Siding Painting
CertaPro Painters’ painting teams use products designed to adhere to aluminum and vinyl. Since the surface of aluminum and vinyl is more stable than wood, the paint finish holds up well when painted. This is a great and cost-effective option if your vinyl or aluminium siding is chalking or faded.
CertaPro replaced the rotted wood before they painted outside and the house looks great.
