Some tips for painting your Dartmouth home:
Exterior Painting to your Dartmouth Home
We’ve painted dozens of homes in Dartmouth – everything from capes, colonials, ranches, and condominiums. Many coastal homes have rotted wood and our carpenters can replace the rotted trim, clapboards, windows, sills, and shingles before we paint. This one-stop shopping is something our busy Clients appreciate.
Shingle Siding Maintenance
Most Dartmouth homes have cedar shingle siding, which needs occasional maintenance. We first power wash your shingles to remove the mold and mildew and then restain them. We can even help you get that great Nantucket Gray for your shingles.
Color consulting for Dartmouth exteriors and interiors
Lots of our Clients work with our free designer to choose both interior and exterior paint colors. Kate will make sure she understands your vision and will never push you into a color that’s not “you.”
If you’re thinking of changing your home’s color, we will prepare a color rendering of the new paint color. We’ll provide a color rendering even before you’ve hired us to paint!
We’re happy to provide a free color rendering of your home before you even hire us. Just ask your estimator at the time of your quote.
Historic homes in Dartmouth
The Dartmouth Historical Society publishes a list of dozens of historical and date-boarded homes in the town of Dartmouth, MA. We’re experienced in working with your historical society to ensure your historic home is painted its original color.
If you have a newer home in Dartmouth, review this list of Dartmouth’s historic homes. Drive by some older Dartmouth homes and take photos of paint colors you like. Our color consultant can ensure that your newer home looks classic and fits right into Dartmouth’s history.
Not many Dartmouth homes are made of brick, but if yours is we can paint your brick home to give it a warmer, cleaner, and less institutional look. We find painting exterior brick can make your home feel more subdued.
Wood Trim and Clapboard Painting
We paint hundreds of wood homes each year and can recommend the correct paint or stain for your Dartmouth home.
Inland homes will receive different product recommendations than homes on the water because waterfront homes take such a beating from the coastal climate.
Deck and Porch Maintenance
Horizontal surfaces such as deck and porch floors need extra attention in our harsh Northeast climate. The sunshine and rain that pools on deck floors tend to fade deck boards faster than the vertical surfaces like the railings.
We recommend staining your wood decks yearly to keep them looking great and protecting your deck from the elements. Some of our customers have us on speed-dial every May so we can stain their porches and decks in time for their July Fourth parties.
Carpentry for your Dartmouth Home
Most Dartmouth homes have some wood trim or windows that have deteriorated over time.
We have carpentry teams that can handle anything from minor trim repairs (with wood or PVC) to whole house shingle or clapboard siding replacement.
Interior painting your Dartmouth Home
Our painting crews are specially trained to paint your interior. They are used to working with your household routine and flow and ensure they’re not painting near the baby’s room when the baby’s napping!
Newer and remodeled Dartmouth homes tend to include open floor plans. This means it’s important to choose a color palette for the first floor that “flows” – otherwise, the space can look choppy.
We offer free, in-home color consultation to all our customers to ensure they choose cohesive paint colors. We’ll even provide a computer rendering of paint colors you’re considering so you can see what they look like before we even pick up a brush. Just let your estimator know you’d like a rendering at the time of your quote so they can snap a few photos for your rendering.
Older Dartmouth homes built before 1978 often contain lead paint. Our staff and painters are EPA RRP certified to safely prepare and paint your older home with lead paint. This is important because working with lead is a health hazard and must be done correctly.
Once your home is safely prepped, the acrylic bonding primers give us great adhesion to finishing coats.
Massachusetts law requires that painters who work on houses with lead paint be certified.
Painting and Maintaining Dartmouth and Cape Cod-area Condominiums
We’ve worked with condo boards and individual condominium owners to paint interior and exterior surfaces. We’re happy to present a painting and/or carpentry bid for your entire condominium or just your individual home. If you’re interested in this, please contact Dave Rowell at: [email protected] or 781-422-1018
We have a separate Commercial Painting Division too:
And if your Dartmouth office needs to remain open while we’re painting, we offer night and weekend work at no extra charge – this way, business is not disrupted by the painting or carpentry we’re doing.
Our commercial department gets to know what’s important to your business or community and matches the paint and application to those needs. For example, we can use scuff-resistant paint in high-traffic areas like schools and microbicidal paints that kill germs in restrooms.
To schedule a commercial painting quote or to ask us questions about your commercial painting or carpentry project, call Dave Rowell at 781-422-1018 or email him at [email protected].
Second homes in Dartmouth:
Need your Airbnb rental painted but live out of state? We work with dozens of Dartmouth-area second homeowners to make the painting or carpentry process easier – even if you can’t be there to supervise the project.

We have “rush crews” that prioritize painting projects with deadlines, so let us know if you’re having a party or selling your home, and we’ll do our best to paint for you in time.

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 provides a huge "boost" to the feel of your entire home. Our complimentary in-home designer will 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.
Worked with Kate to choose a dark blue color for my exterior. Getting lots of compliments from my neighbors.
