We love to paint 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.
We paint all styles of Pembroke homes:
We’ve painted many styles of homes in Pembroke from colonials, capes, ranches and converted summer cottages to contemporaries and new construction homes. We have the know-how to advise you on paint colors that fit with Pembroke’s historic heritage, while still being unique.
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, and 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.
How do I know if my exterior needs painting?
Lots of Pembroke homes look fine, but need a maintenance coat of paint or stain to remain protected from our harsh New England winters. If you’re unsure if you need to paint your exterior, take our quiz to find out.
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.
Older Pembroke homes often have horse hair plaster walls. Our crews are experienced in repairing horsehair plaster before we paint.
Many older homes also 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.
If you have any questions about painting or carpentry on your Pembroke home, just get in touch. We’re happy to answer your questions, even if you’re doing the painting yourself.
Pembroke Wood Repairs and Carpentry Services
Most Pembroke homes are constructed of wood and many need wood repair of their trim, clapboards or shingles before we paint. To offer one-stop shopping, we have carpenters on staff who can fix the rotted wood before we start your painting project. This means that whether you need a single rotted shingle replaced or an entire side of clapboards, we can handle the carpentry part of the project before we start painting.
Lots of Pembroke homes have cedar shingles
Most Pembroke houses have shingles on at least one side of the home. It is important to maintain the cedar by power washing it every few years. The black and dark green you notice on your shingles is likely “plant growth” (mold and mildew) and it’s important that you remove it when you see it. You can prevent mold and mildew from growing by cutting back overgrown plants that shade your home to allow the sun to shine on that side of your house.
We are happy to powerwash your home using a mold-killing bleach to make your shingles look better. For even more protection, we suggest a solid or semi-transparent stain for your shingles.
These shingles were treated with a solid stain in Duxbury over 6 years ago, and they are still in good shape today!
They were very thorough and kept the work areas clean and protected the surrounding areas too. Also, they were very good on keeping us posted when they would be coming to work with the sporadic weather.

Since your home is exposed to salt air and New England winters, we have carpenters on staff to replace the rotting wood, window sills, shingles and clapboards that inevitably occurs in homes on the South Shore. The CertaPro Painters® of the South Shore and Boston team can also install decorative borders inside your home including crown molding, baseboards, door casings, and wainscoting.
Deck & Fence Painting and Staining
At CertaPro Painters® of the South Shore and Boston we offer a variety of interior and exterior home painting and staining services, including your home’s deck and fencing. Regardless of the room inside your home that needs an update or the area of your home’s exterior that needs protection from Mother Nature, our team works with you to determine the best plan of action for your home.
Drywall, plaster, and horsehair plaster repair
CertaPro Painters of the Boston-area can prepare and repair your drywall, plaster, and horsehair plaster walls before painting them. Whether your home has water damage or has walls that need patching and sanding, CertaPro Painters of the South Shore will patch, sand, and prime your walls to create a smooth surface 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.
Free, in-home Consultation
Our designer will work with you in your home to choose colors that match your current interior furnishings. We can also help you choose colors for your home’s exterior and have extensive experience getting exterior colors historically accurate. This means if you want to blend into the South Shore’s historic districts, we can make this happen. Color consulting is a free service to all of our customers and is time well spent.
Power washing is a vital step in painting the exterior of your home. CertaPro Painters® of the South Shore and Boston uses the process to remove mold, oil and old paint so new paint absorbs into your surface better.
Stucco Repairs and Painting
As with any other home exterior, it’s important to maintain the stucco or EIFS (also known as synthetic stucco) covering your home. The CertaPro Painters® of the South Shore and Boston team is very knowledgeable in both repairs and painting related to these two materials and will work alongside you to determine what services your home needs.
Carpentry & Wood Repair
Because there is so much wood on South Shore and Boston area exteriors, almost 60% of our painting projects start with some sort of wood repair before we paint. Our busy customers appreciate that we can do the whole painting job for them, without having to coordinate an outside carpenter to repair rotted wood, clapboards, trim, deck and porch boards and replace shingles for them.
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

Paint recommendations for Pembroke homes
All paint and materials are included in our quotes. We often choose a solid stain (we like Benjamin Moore Arborcoat) for clapboards to provide protection from New England winters to Pembroke homes. Stain penetrates the wood, while paint sits on top of the wood. For exterior trim, we usually specify Sherwin Williams Emerald. It’s important that you use a high quality paint since most of the cost of painting your home is the labor. For interiors we love Sherwin William Duration Home as it stands up to traffic for a long time. As the largest residential painting company on the South Shore, we pass our fantastic pricing onto you.
When can you paint my Pembroke home?
Most of the time, we can start painting your exterior within a few weeks (weather permitting). If you are in a rush, we have rush crews to accommodate your party, backyard wedding and other important events. Since interiors don’t depend on good weather, we can often get started on your interior within a week or two. Just let us know your deadline when we meet for your quote and we’ll let you know if we can meet it.
