Scroll down to review some tips on painting in Dartmouth, where the coastal climate beats up our exteriors.

Some tips for painting your Dartmouth home:

Exterior Painting to your Dartmouth Home

Exterior & Garage Door Painting Project Rochester, MAWe’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.

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, 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 rich history.

Brick Painting

Not many Dartmouth homes are made of brick, but if yours is, we can paint it to give it a warmer, cleaner, and less institutional look. Painting the exterior brick can make your home feel more subdued.

Wood Trim and Clapboard Painting

We’ve painted 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 Dartmouth’s waterfront homes are so damaged by the coastal climate.

Deck and Porch Maintenance

Horizontal surfaces such as deck and porch floors need extra attention in our harsh Dartmouth climate. The sunshine and rain that pool 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 protect them 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 even try to ensure they’re not painting near the nursery when your 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. This one (free) service makes all the difference to projects.  We’ll even provide a computer rendering of the 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.

Lead Paint 

Older Dartmouth homes built before 1978 often contain lead paint. Our staff and painters are EPA RRP certified to prepare and paint your older home with lead paint safely. 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 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:

Dartmouth businesses, medical offices, religious facilities, restaurants, property managers, shops, and facility managers have worked with CertaPro Painters for years.

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].

Have a second home 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 for them – even if you can’t be there to supervise the project.  We’ll visit your home, send you an email with the quote, schedule the project even if you can’t be on-site, and email your photos and videos of the progress during the painting.

When can we paint your home?

We update this page weekly with our latest interior and exterior painting timeframes to ensure you understand how soon we can get to your 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.
