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.
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. In-home 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 before we 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 painting in the Boston climate, and specify the paint or stain formula that's right for your home's body, trim, shutters, windows & doors.
We can paint your interior walls, baseboard, trim, and doors, and moldings. Our (free) interior color consultant can work with you in your home to choose colors you love and 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 New England and require occasional power washing & staining to keep them beautiful & protected. We also specialize in staining cedar shingles so they reach that fantastic "Nantucket Gray" color more quickly.
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 exteriors in our area, about 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.

Some tips on painting Kingston homes:
Exterior painting tips for Kingston homes:
Kingston residents who live in antique and older homes often like to match their home’s original paint color. Even though your antique Kingston home might be faded, we can work to restore your original exterior paint color. Historic colors are our specialty as we’ve painted many antique and date-boarded homes throughout the South Shore.
We can even work with the Kingston Historical Society to match the color your antique home was painted in the past.
Because it’s on the coast, harsh weather often affects Kingston’s homes, and paint and stain tends to wear away on Kingston exteriors. Because of this, we use special paints and stains to give Kingston houses extra protection from these severe New England elements. We also advise South Shore residents to keep their gutters clean so that ice dams don’t develop to cause leaking and interior damage. Our painters are happy to clean your gutters when painting your exterior – just let us know if this is something you’d like us to do.
Many Kingston homes are constructed at least partially with wood, and we have carpenters on staff to help replace rotted wood before we paint. We’re a one-stop shop, so you don’t have to hire a separate carpenter before you paint. Our carpenters can do minor and major carpentry repairs, from replacing a few shingles to replacing your entire exterior trim with PVC (like Azek). If you are painting yourself, you should never paint over rotted wood. We wrote a guide to rotted wood to help our customers understand what to do if they see rotted wood on their homes’ exteriors.
Cedar shingles are very popular in Kingston because they offer a classic New England look while being extremely durable. Many homeowners prefer their shingles to gray and weather over time and other customers ask us to apply a semi-solid or solid stain over them.
What’s that black stuff on my shingles? The black spotting on or underneath your shingles is likely growth from mold and mildew. We power wash using a mold-killing detergent, but since mold is relentless and tends to grow back in damp environments, it’s important to allow as much sunlight to hit your shingles every day. This might also mean you should trim your trees to prevent lots of shade on the shingled sides of your house.
Decks of all wood types need to be maintained every 1-2 years. Take a look at our complete guide to maintaining your decks and porches.
Because of Kingston’s proximity to the coast, we recommend our clients paint their homes approximately every 5-7 years. We often apply a maintenance coat of paint every three years, in between major paint jobs, to help protect and beautify your home.
What months can you paint on the South Shore and Kingston?
In general, it’s warm and dry enough to paint outside in Kingston from April – October. Sometimes a bit earlier or later. We always use a moisture meter to be sure we’re not painting a home that’s too wet to handle a coat of paint.
Good preparation – the key to a great paint job on your Kingston home
We start with great surface preparation when we paint your home. This way, the final paint coats stand up better to the New England winters and hot summers in Kingston and around the South Shore.
Which exterior paint is best for my coastal or inland home in Kingston?
The type of paint you choose makes a big difference to the final result, especially because Kinston is on the coast and endures hot summers and harsh New England winters. For trim paint, we like Sherwin Williams Resilience and Benjamin Moore Arborcoat solid stain on your exterior.
Does my exterior even need painting?
Paint tends to “wear away” and become less protective over time. It’s not always clear if your exterior needs painting because your house may look just fine.
If you can rub your hand against your exterior paint and have some paint come off on your hand, like chalk, your paint is no longer protecting your home.
You can also take our 20-second quiz to see if your Kingston home needs painting.
Maintaining your porch or deck:
Most Kingston homes have decks and porches that need maintenance. Because your deck and porch floorboards can hold puddled water, may be in direct sun, and are walked on constantly, your horizontal floors need to be maintained more often than your house. This usually means staining your wood deck floors every two years to keep them protected and looking great.
We have carpenters on staff who can replace any deck boards that have already rotted before staining your deck.

Homes built before 1978 in Kingston may contain lead paint:
If your home was built before 1978, you may have lead paint on and inside your home. Because we’re lead-safe renovators we understand how to prepare your home safely before and during the painting process. It’s the law in Massachusetts that only a licensed lead-safe painting company can work on your home, and CertaPro Painters is licensed to renovate homes with lead paint.
We have a separate commercial painting department that understands your Kingston business:
We’ve painted in Kingston for years and specialize in offices, medical and dental offices, and condominiums. Our commercial team has painted dozens of condominiums in Kingston, Plymouth, and the South Shore.
If your Kingston business needs to be open during the painting project, we offer night and weekend painting at no extra charge. This way, you can keep your business open while we paint.
For commercial projects, call Dave Rowell at (781) 422-1018 or [email protected]. We can advise you on paint products and how to stage the project so everyone is happy. Learn more about our commercial painting services for Kingston and surrounding towns here.
We paint second homes and rentals in Kingston:
If you are a landlord with a second home in Kingston that you rent out, we can help you paint your property even if you live out of state. We’re also happy to schedule the painting around your Airbnb tenants so nobody is disrupted.
Interior painting to homes in Kingston:
Older Kingston homes usually have nicely separated first-floor rooms which allow for a variety of colors. Our free color consultant can work with your vision and current furnishings to give you more confidence in choosing your final colors – and she’ll never push you into something that isn’t 100% “you.”
Open-floor plan homes are also very popular. Painting the first floor with an open floor plan presents the issue of determining where one color begins and another ends. Our designer on staff works with our customers – a complimentary service – to help ensure that your open floor plan doesn’t have competing colors that make the space seem choppy. Most times for open floor plans our designer suggests choosing one color in a few different tones, to keep the space flowing while making sure each room is clearly defined.
Antique homes in Kingston often contain horsehair plaster walls. Our painters can mend your plaster and drywall walls before we paint no matter if it’s a hole or just a ding.
Our color consultant is happy to work with your children and teens to choose a wall color that works for you both. We paint for lots of South Shore families with 12-year olds who are ready to give up the wall colors they’ve had since they were infants. We also understand the balance we need to strike between choosing a color that pleases the teen or tween, and one that blends nicely with the rest of your home.
Many Clients like us to paint their kitchen cabinets to modernize their kitchens without the cost of a full kitchen remodeling job. This is a great way to make a huge impact in your kitchen without a complete remodel and is one of the projects our Clients tell us that brings the most difference in the look of their home.
We’ll provide a color-rendering of your paint colors you’re considering on a photo of your home or interior space even before you hire us – just ask your estimator at the quote to snap a few photos for our designer to use for your rendering.
