Residential and Commercial Painters in Manchester, CT

Manchester is located east of Hartford between South Windsor and Glastonbury. The town has many attractions including four museums, Wickham Park and other recreational areas, shopping on Main Street and in Buckland Hills, and a large selection of restaurants. One of the town’s biggest traditions is the annual Manchester Road Race which is held every Thanksgiving. The race is the second-most popular road race in New England, behind only the Boston Marathon.

Over the years the Silk City has experienced a couple periods of boom growth. The first growth period started in the late 1800s and went until the early 1900s with the rise of the textile and paper industries. Many of Manchester’s core neighborhoods developed at this time, with much of the homes being of the multi-family variety built for the mill workers and their families. Manchester again experienced rapid growth after the end of World War II as nearby Pratt and Whitney, Hamilton Standard, and the insurance industry in Hartford became more and more prominent. The gaps between the mill neighborhoods were filled in and new neighborhoods were developed further from the center of town.

We have painted all types of homes in Manchester. We have experience painting single and multi-family homes surrounding Main Street and Middle Turnpike East that were built during the boom periods, and single-family homes from the neighborhood south of Spring Street to the Buckley section of town. Our painters have also completed countless commercial projects for businesses small and large as well as for the Manchester School System.

Common Problems with Manchester, CT Residential Homes

We have painted all types of homes in Manchester. We have experience painting single and multi-family homes surrounding Main Street and Middle Turnpike East that were built during the boom periods, and single-family homes from the neighborhood south of Spring Street to the Buckley section of town.  Our painters have also completed countless commercial projects for businesses small and large as well as for the Manchester School System.
Wood Siding
Many of Manchester’s homes we paint have either cedar shingles or cedar clapboard siding.  Contemporary homes will also have shiplap or T1-11 siding.  Sherwin Williams’ WoodScapes color collection is a very popular color palette among our Manchester customers.  Whilst wood siding provides great charm and beauty, it does need to be regularly maintained.
Mold and Mildew
These pesky microorganisms tend to take hold a little sooner on homes that are in wooded areas.  You also may notice mold, mildew, and algae on the northern side of your home.  We recommend pressure washing your wood siding with a mold-killing solvent.  It is also a good idea to regularly trim the plant life on the shady sides of your home to allow them to dry out faster.

An overabundance of moisture does create rot issues as well. Our carpenters repair rotting wood on over half of the homes we paint. It is very important to never paint over rotted wood. Not only will the paint fail to adhere, but the rot never stops spreading. It is best to remove the rotten areas and replace with fresh wood.

PVC or Wood

The most common wood replacement areas are your trim boards. Many of our customers elect to replace any rotten trim boards with PVC or Azek trim. While it is more expensive, you will not have to replace it again. To help keep costs down, we leave the non-rotted wood in place and repair only the boards that are rotten. Today’s synthetic trims are available to match many historic molding styles, so the replaced trim will not look any different than the wood we do not need to touch. If you plan to put your home on the market soon, it can be more cost effective to choose less expensive wood materials to replace your boards.

Aluminum Siding

Many Manchester homes built from the 1960s to the mid-1980s tend to have aluminum siding. Also, some of the older houses were re-sided with aluminum during this time period. Most people do not realize it, but aluminum siding is a great surface to paint! Over time the protective coating on aluminum siding breaks down and turns to dust (or chalk). This is a good sign, as the coating is taking the beating from the sun, rain, and salt air instead of your home’s structure. However, it eventually needs to renew that protection. We can pressure wash and scrub off the chalkiness and apply two coats of top-quality paint. Your siding will be refreshed, and you can expect ten plus years of life out of your new coating. Aluminum does not experience the moisture pitfalls that wood has which means extra longevity for the paint job.

Vinyl Siding

Homes built in the mid-1980s to present day in Manchester are often sided with vinyl siding. Like aluminum siding, vinyl siding is another great surface to paint. The one difference is that we need to be careful with the color chosen. Selecting the same color or lighter is perfectly fine. However, painting your siding with a darker color than the original may cause the siding to buckle. The darker color will absorb more heat than the siding was designed to handle. Sherwin Williams does have a family of vinyl-safe colors that allow some leeway in choosing darker colors. These colors are formulated to dissipate the heat from the sun.


We have experience painting all types of interiors, from high foyer areas to large open floor plans to the tight bathrooms that are often found in older homes.

Specialty Work

We are quite adept at updating interiors to a more modern look. Some of our most requested services are wallpaper removal, popcorn ceiling removal, painting high walls or foyers, and converting stained trim to painted trim. Many of our customers like to paint the easier projects themselves but call us in to tackle these more intensive projects.
