Hints for your Norwell exterior painting project:
Norwell Pride is evident in its historic buildings and fantastic schools. The residents of Norwell take a lot of pride in their homes and we’ve painted over 220 Norwell homes over the years. 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 a common complaint 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 a PVC material (like Azek), so the rotting does not occur again in that area. While PVC tends to be a more expensive material than wood is, 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. Here’s an article we wrote on replacing rotted wood if that’s a concern for you.
Boy does Norwell have a lot of cedar shingles! Shingles are nice looking as well as 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. 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 to 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 a factor. We frequently apply Benjamin Moore Arborcoat stain and Sherwin Williams Resilience paint on Norwell homes because they both protect Norwell homes as well as 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 2 years. The finish on deck and porch floorboards are worn by foot and the hot sun in the summer. Rain puddles on the deck boards and snow piles on during the winter, making the deck floor hard to keep protected and looking good without frequent maintenance.
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 get the paint color of your Norwell home looking 100% authentic.
Newer homes in Norwell tend to need a coat of paint every 5 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 home more distinct in their cul-de-sac. In fact, we find that roof color is a big factor in choosing an exterior paint color and our (free) designer can help make sure 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 both interior and exterior colors that blend with Norwell’s historic vibe or stand out as very unique in your neighborhood. It’s worth getting your color perfect because you will be living with it for years to come.
Color sampling before we start your project.
Free 8” x 8” color samples from Benjamin Moore and Sherwin Williams.
Interior painting in Norwell
Many newer and refurbished Norwell homes have open floor plans which need a color scheme that flows seamlessly from room to room with colors that feel cohesive. Our color consultant can help you work with your current furnishings to get your palette just right. Take a 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 and in mudrooms and other areas where toddlers may ride their tricycles.
Open-floor plan homes that are popular in the newer and renovated homes throughout Norwell require thoughtful consideration of colors to be sure the flow of the space 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?

Brick Painting and Staining
We can paint or stain your exterior or interior brick surfaces. The decision to paint your brick is not easily reversible, so we'll help you understand the process of painting over brick. In the end, we've found painting brick makes homes look & feel less "industrial" and more, well, like a home.
Color Consultation (Complimentary!)
Our designer Kate will work with you to choose wall colors that coordinate with your current furnishings and exterior colors that make your home stand out from your neighbor's. Color consulting is a complimentary service to all of our customers.
Interior Carpentry and Molding Installation Services
We install crown and dental moldings, wainscot, and other decorative interior moldings to give your home a polished look. We can even install "picture framing" beneath a chair rail to give the look of expensive molding at a fraction of the cost.
Deck & Fence Painting and Staining
We offer a variety of interior and exterior home painting and staining services for your deck, porch and fence. Mahogany decks found in our area are our specialty and need specific products to stay beautiful and protected from the South Shore and Boston climate.
Drywall, plaster, and horsehair plaster repair
We can prepare and repair your drywall, plaster, and horsehair plaster walls before painting them. Whether your walls have water damage or if they have holes and dents that need patching and sanding, we'll create a smooth surface on which to apply paint.
EPA Lead Certified
At CertaPro Painters® of the South Shore and Boston we are EPA Lead Certified. This means that if we are performing a renovation, repair or painting project that disturbs lead-based paint in your home, we use certified renovators who are trained by EPA-approved training providers and follow lead-safe work practices.
Epoxy Finishes to your concrete floor
Epoxy coatings help your garage, and basement floors seem polished and more “finished.” By locking in the concrete dust that gets kicked up when people drive or walk on concrete, these coatings can keep the rest of your home cleaner as well.
Exterior House Painting and Staining
We paint & stain homes of all kinds - wood, stucco, brick, and aluminum or vinyl siding. We have years of experience in the Boston climate and will specify the paint or stain formula that's right for your home's body, trim, shutters, windows & doors.
Our interior painters can paint your interior walls, baseboard, trim, and doors, and moldings. Our interior color consultant can come to your home to help you choose colors that you love, that work with your current furnishings.
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.
Quality & pride in workmanship Very neat and attention to details.
