The particulars of painting in Weymouth:
Weymouth has seen a surge of homebuyers in 2021, and it’s no wonder as Massachusetts’ second settlement, Weymouth is convenient to Boston and offers lots of neighborhoods for families.
The four Weymouth zip codes of North Weymouth, South Weymouth, East Weymouth and Weymouth Landing all have their own unique neighborhood characteristics that we consider when we’re painting homes in the Weymouth area.
We’ve painted many of the new waterfront properties in North Weymouth as well as the summer cottages that are often remodeled in this area. Our Commercial department has painted at South Shore Hospital and many of the commercial buildings and businesses along Columbia Square.
Choosing colors for your Weymouth Interior and Exterior:
Our interior and exterior color consultant can help you choose colors that blend with Weymouth’s look and feel. We can help you choose a color that fits right in your Weymouth neighborhood, while still standing out as unique.
The colors of a few of the Victorian homes in East Weymouth were chosen by our designer and any Weymouth Capes and Georgian Colonials throughout the town have also been painted by CertaPro in the last 24 years.
Historic homes are our specialty. We’ve painted many historic homes on the South Shore including many in Weymouth. We’re happy to work with the Weymouth Historical Society, to make sure your paint colors are historically accurate if that’s important to you.
Preparing your Weymouth home to paint
We start with first-rate preparation to your home’s surface. This way your painting project will stand up better to the harsh winters and hot summers in Weymouth. If your Weymouth home was built before 1978, it may contain lead paint. Because we’re lead-safe renovators can prepare your home safely before applying paint. In Massachusetts, it’s the law that a painter be licensed to renovate a home with lead and we hold every license and certification to keep your family safe.
Which exterior paint do you use on Weymouth homes?
Of course, every home is different, but there are some paints we recommend again and again on Weymouth because they work better with Weymouth’s unique coastal climate. The type of paint you choose makes a difference to the final outcome and we recommend often recommend Sherwin Williams Resilience on exterior trim and Benjamin Moore Arborcoat solid stain for clapboards.
Painting your deck or porch in Weymouth:
Many Weymouth homes we paint also have decks and porches that need maintenance. Because deck and porch floors suffer more abuse than other exterior surfaces, the wooden floorboards of your deck require staining and maintenance every two years to remain protected. If you’re interested, our carpenters can rebuild your deck’s top using composite decking which unlike wood decking is maintenance-free.
Tips For Painting Projects in Weymouth
Weymouth exterior painting tips:
Harsh weather and salt air: Because Weymouth is a coastal town, salt air and coastal storms can wear away at your Weymouth exterior. We use paint and staining products that specifically help combat the wear your Weymouth home endures in our hot summers and harsh winters. It’s important that if you see any raw wood on your Weymouth home, that you make sure it’s painted or stained immediately to help preserve it. Paint and stain not only look good, but they also help protect the wood on your home from the elements.
Rotted wood trim, shingles, and clapboards are a concern on Weymouth exteriors. Weymouth’s climate is so harsh that rotting wood is prevalent on most homes we work on in Weymouth so we have carpenters on staff to fix your wood prior to painting. If you see rotted wood on your Weymouth exterior, make sure to replace the wood as soon as possible. This way water won’t get inside or behind the wood any further. We’re happy to replace your rotted wood with either PVC or wood – whichever is within your budget.
Cedar Shingle Maintenance: Shingles are durable and beautiful and are seen throughout Weymouth and the whole Boston area. Many Weymouth residents want their shingles to “gray” over time, while other homeowners add a coating on their shingles to protect them and keep them from graying. Either way, we are experienced at shingle siding maintenance, power washing, and staining the many cedar shingles of Weymouth Mass!
Painting the inside of your Weymouth home:
Weymouth homes, both old and new, have a number of different types of floor plans, and each requires a different approach:
Open-floor plan homes are popular in newer and renovated Weymouth homes and condominiums and often are painted with a color palette of one or two colors and tones. This allows the open floor plan to flow nicely and not seem choppy. Painting too many colors in an open floor plan home is often too stimulating and not cohesive enough for the open space.
First-floor powder rooms are a great place to experiment with a pop of color if you have an open floor plan.
The interiors of older homes in Weymouth are often nicely sanctioned by walls and can handle separate room colors. Our (free) designer can work with you in your home to choose colors that work together and match your current furnishings. Older Weymouth walls are often made of horsehair plaster which we can repair before we repaint. And what a difference a coat of paint makes on the stucco walls on many Weymouth homes built in the 1960s and 70s! We offer free color sampling ahead of time in order to make sure you are happy with your final color selection.
We are also experienced at working with teens and tweens who want to choose their own bedroom color. Our designer can make sure your teen’s bedroom expresses their individuality, without looking out of place in your home – we understand this delicate balance!
