If you have questions about house painting projects, give us a call or take a look at our frequently asked questions page.

1 Wash

We powerwash or handwash your home’s exterior to remove dirt, mildew and salt that’s commonly found on Boston-area homes.

Brick Painting and Staining

We paint and stain exterior or interior brick surfaces. The decision to paint your brick is not easily reversible, so we'll help you decide if painting over your brick is the right decision for you. Most often, painting brick makes homes look & feel less "industrial" and more, well, like a home.

Residential Exterior Painting FAQs

How soon can you paint my home’s exterior?

Generally, it is first-come, first-served, BUT we understand things come up and painting needs to be done on a strict timeline. As long as weather cooperates and your home is not wet or the temperatures are an average of 50 degrees (generally mid-April through October), we can work with your deadlines. If you don’t have a strict deadline, usually we are able to paint for you within 2-4 weeks of receiving your deposit.  We update this page weekly to give you an idea of our current painting timeframes.

How much will it cost to paint my home’s exterior?

Here’s our exterior pricing guide.  Find a house that looks like yours in style and size and you’ll have a ballpark of our prices.

How long will it take to paint my home’s exterior?

Below is a common schedule for exterior painting – but a lot depends on the weather and the size of the project:

Day 1: Powerwash and let dry.
Day 1: Carpentry and rotted wood replacement.
Day 2: Prepare surfaces by sanding and color approval.
Days 3-5: Priming and painting.
Day 5: Final inspection and touch ups.

Can paint the exterior of my home in the winter?

In the Boston area, your home’s exterior cannot be painted in the winter.

The winter season in the Northeast lasts from mid-November until about April. During these colder months, temperatures below 35 degrees prevent us from painting outdoors. We can start your project in colder weather by power washing and replacing rotted wood before we paint, but the painting must occur when it is consistently above 50 degrees.
