Hints for your Norwell exterior painting project:

Norwell Pride is evident in its historic buildings and fantastic schools.

We’ve painted over 220 Norwell homes over since 1998, so we know a bit about what it takes to maintain them:

Harsh weather: Because Norwell sits near the coast, storms eat and wear away at your Norwell home’s exterior. We use paints and stains that specifically aid in helping your home resist the wear and tear it endures during our harsh New England winters.

Rotted wood shingles, trim, and clapboards are common complaints from Norwell homeowners. Because so many Norwell homes are built from wood, wood rot is common on Norwell homes – even newer ones. It’s important that if you see rotted wood on your home, you replace it as soon as possible because if water gets inside the porous wood, the rot will spread.

PVC vs. Wood replacement boards – No need to hire a separate carpenter, as we have carpenters on staff to replace the rotted wood on your Norwell house before we paint. We often replace rotted wood boards with PVC (like Azek) so that the rotting does not occur again in that area.

While PVC tends to be a more expensive material than wood, knowing you won’t have to replace the board again saves money in the long run. We also don’t have to replace ALL of your (non-rotted) trim with PVC, so replacing a board here and there with PVC will not break the bank. Norwell residents who are moving sooner rather than later often choose to replace the rotted boards with more wood because it’s less expensive than PVC.

When PVC is added to wood trim in a few areas, it is 100% paintable and blends right into your home amongst the other wood trim. In fact, there are many PVC molding profiles to choose from, and they even have intricate and historically accurate PVC molding now.

Norwell homes have lots of cedar shingles! Shingles are nice-looking, durable, and impact-resistant, making them popular in Norwell and all over the South Shore. Cedar shingles often cover whole homes or, at the very least, one or two sides of Norwell exteriors.

Many Norwell residents prefer to let their shingles “gray” over time and you’ll see this very quaint look throughout the town. Other Norwell residents prefer to coat their shingles with a semi-solid or solid stain to protect them and keep them from weathering.

Either way, we are experienced at shingle maintenance, power washing, and staining. Because cedar shingles tend to grow mold and mildew, you may see some black on your shingles or behind them.  We can remove the mold/mildew and add a coat of protection to your shingles.

Power washing with a mold-killing detergent will wash off the mold and mildew, but if your shingles are in a damp or shady area, the mold or mildew will often grow back. We recommend trimming your trees to reduce the shade near your cedar shingles and slow down mold growth.

Norwell’s climate dictates certain exterior paint and stain formulas

Because Norwell sits a bit inland, the salt from the ocean is usually not a factor in deciding what paint or stain to use, but the harsh New England climate (cold, windy winters, and hot summers) is still a factor.

We frequently apply Benjamin Moore Arborcoat stain and Sherwin Williams Resilience paint on Norwell homes because they both protect Norwell homes from stormy winters and hot summers and beautify them.

It is important to understand the different grades and types of paint to make sure you’re using one that will have lasting results.  In Norwell, we generally recommend painting your exterior every 5-7 years.  We often will apply a “maintenance” coat in years 4-6 to protect your home.

To keep your deck protected and looking nice, we generally paint or stain the floorboards on Norwell homes every two years. The finish on the deck and porch floorboards is worn by feet and the hot sun in the summer. Rain puddles on the deck boards and snow piles on during the winter, make the deck floor hard to keep protected and look good without frequent maintenance.

Norwell business owners – We have a separate Commercial Painting Department:

Norwell businesses, medical offices, religious buildings, restaurants, property managers, shops, and facility managers have worked with CertaPro Painters for years to keep their businesses and properties well-maintained.

And if your Norwell business needs to remain open while we’re painting, we offer night and weekend work at no extra charge – this way, your business will not be disrupted.

Our commercial department digs in to understand what’s important to your business or the residents in your community and matches the paint and application to those needs.  For example, we can use scuff-resistant paint in high-traffic areas like lobbies and microbicidal paints that kill germs in restrooms and medical offices.

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].

Giving Back to Norwell:

We know how hard Norwell organizations work, and since 1998, we’ve donated to Friendship House and Norwell Youth Baseball.

Need a raffle prize or silent auction donation for your Norwell school or community organization?  Just email [email protected] and we’ll respond with a gift certificate you can raffle off or sell.

Everything went smoothly and came out exactly as we thought. We are getting lots of compliments from the neighbors.

Choosing exterior paint colors for your Norwell home:

Our exterior color designer will work with you to help you choose colors that blend nicely with the historic homes throughout Norwell. Here are some popular Norwell and South Shore historic paint colors to get you started.

Historic homes are our specialty. We’ve painted date-boarded historic homes in Norwell and have worked hard to restore them to their original, authentic historic paint color. We’ve even worked with the Norwell Historical Society to make the paint color of your Norwell home look 100% authentic.

If you’re interested in historic colors that fit into Norwell for your newer home, drive by some of the Norwell antique homes listed on this page and snap photos of the ones you like.  We’ll take it from there, ensuring your home is painted the same color.

Newer homes in Norwell need a coat of paint every five years to help maintain their “new” look. Our Norwell customers who have worked with our designer have often chosen exterior and interior colors that allow them to make their newer homes more distinct in their cul-de-sac.  We find that roof color is a big factor in choosing an exterior paint color and our (free) designer can help ensure your siding and shingle color blends nicely with your roof color.

Color resources and assistance for Norwell homes

Because color choice can be overwhelming, we have lots of color resources for you, including:

A free, in-home consultation with our designer. She can help you choose interior and exterior colors that blend with Norwell’s historic vibe or stand out as unique in your neighborhood. It’s worth getting your color perfect because you will live with it for years.

Color sampling before we start your project.

Color renderings of your home in the new color (interior or exterior) – at the time of sale, just ask your estimator to prepare one for you.

Interior painting in Norwell

Many newer and refurbished Norwell homes have open floor plans that need a color scheme that flows seamlessly from room to room with cohesive colors.  Our color consultant can help you work with your current furnishings to get your palette right.   Look at our reviews from your Norwell neighbors to see how we make the interior painting process easy for you.

Older Norwell walls are often made from horsehair plaster and need repair.  Our crews are experienced in repairing your plaster walls before painting them.

Because Norwell is a town with lots of school-aged families, we often recommend specific interior products for painting high-traffic family interiors.  This reduces scuffing on narrow hallway walls, mudrooms, and other areas where toddlers can ride their tricycles.

Open floor plan homes that are popular in the newer and renovated homes throughout Norwell require thoughtful consideration of colors to ensure the space’s flow isn’t overwhelmed by different colors. Our customers with open floor plans like to work with our (free!) designer and often choose one color to paint in various tones and shades throughout the open space. Having a “whole house” palette for open-floor plan homes is very helpful in making sure your home feels cohesive.

The interiors of older Norwell homes often have walls that break up the space on the first floor. These very delineated rooms usually have very specific uses (for example, studying, dining, and preparing food). Because older homes tend to have walls and doors that clearly mark the transition from one room to the next, painting colors to suit the room’s use and feel is perfectly acceptable. For example, in an older home with walls and doors separating the downstairs rooms, it’s fine to paint a TV room in a calm beige, and, right next door, paint the study a rich brown.

Our color consultant can work with you in your Norwell home at no charge once you choose us to paint for you. We are happy to help with both exterior and interior color choices. We find our happiest customers are the ones who took the hour with our designer to get the colors “just right.”

When can we start your painting project?

We update this webpage weekly with our latest painting timeframes. If you are in a rush, we have a rush crew on standby to be sure we meet your deadlines (weather permitting of course, for outdoor painting).

If you have any questions about painting your Norwell or South Shore home, please email us at [email protected].

  • Written Proposal: Is their proposal detailed and in writing? Or does it seem like an informal estimate?
  • Professionalism: What is your first impression of the sales representative/estimator? Also, were all of your questions or concerns addressed? And are you confident with their answers to your questions?

Keep these things in mind as you talk with various contractors.
