About Painting Projects in Pembroke
You’ll see our CertaPro trucks and lawn signs all over Pembroke. We love that Pembroke is so nicely zoned to blend new neighborhoods into the historic feel of the town. After painting hundreds of homes in the area, we’ve learned a few things that will help you paint your home.
Exterior painting of Pembroke Homes
Lots of Pembroke residents in antique homes like to match the original paint color of the home. Even though your antique Pembroke home might be faded, we can work with the Pembroke Historical Society to restore your exterior back its original color. Here are some of the historic colors we paint in Pembroke and all around the South Shore.
Because Pembroke is near the coast, coastal storms often wear away at the paint coatings on your home. This means we use special paint and stain products on Pembroke homes to give Pembroke houses extra protection from the elements. It’s also important to keep your gutters clean and free-flowing so ice dams don’t develop and cause leaks and interior stains and drywall damage.
Many Pembroke homes are made of wood, which our carpenters often replace rotting wood before we paint. In fact, 50% of Pembroke homes require some kind of carpentry, shingle & window sill repairs or trim & clapboard replacement before we even pick up a paintbrush. If you are painting yourself, you never want to paint over rotted wood. Here’s a guide to rotted wood we put together to help you understand how to handle this common Pembroke problem.
Cedar shingles are prevalent in Pembroke and most Pembroke homes have shingles on at least a side or two. Cedar shingles offer a classic New England look and some of our Pembroke customers like them to gray and weather. We are also able to apply a semi-solid or solid stain if you don’t want your shingles to weather over time.
The black on or behind your shingles is likely mold and mildew. We are able to remove the mold using a mold-killing detergent in our power washer. There is no guarantee that mold won’t grow back, so it is imperative to get sunlight on your shingles to slow down the growth. This might also mean you have to trim your trees to prevent lots of shade on the shingled sides of your Pembroke home.
Because of Pembroke’s proximity to the coast, we recommend painting Pembroke homes approximately every 5-7 years. We often apply a maintenance coat of paint every 3 years in between to help protect your home.
Interior painting to Pembroke homes:
Lots of Pembroke customers love to entertain, and their open-floor plan homes reflect this. Painting a home with an open floor plan presents the issue of where one color begins and another ends, since there are often no walls to separate the rooms. We have a designer on staff that works with our customers after they choose us to paint. This is a free service that helps ensure your open floor plan doesn’t have competing colors that make the space choppy. Usually, our designer is able to choose one color in a few different tones, to keep the space feeling open, while still defining the rooms.
Many older homes have nicely separated first floor rooms which allow for more of a variety of colors. Again our color consultant is trained to work with your taste and current furnishings to give you more confidence in choosing your final colors without being pushy.
Our color consultant is happy to work with your children and teens to choose a wall color that works for you both. We understand that this can be tricky and work to strike a nice balance.
If your Pembroke home has wallpaper that needs removal, we can handle that too.
