Residential Painting Services

Welcome to Catchlight Painting

From painting & staining, to crack repair, light carpentry and surface restoration, Catchlight Painting provides a full complement of house painting services to homeowners throughout the extended Greater Boston Metropolitan Area. We repair and paint both contemporary and historic homes, inside and out, and consistently deliver beautiful, lasting results.

Having painters work on your home should be a positive experience. We make sure that it is by maintaining a clean well-protected work area and leaving no residual mess. Expect an efficient, friendly, non-smoking, highly skilled crew and the peace-of-mind that comes from choosing an established, fully-licensed, insured and dependable painting contractor.

What Are Your Painting Needs?

From a simple color change to wallpaper stripping and surface repair, we work with your concerns, possessions, pets and children in mind. Whether your project requires interior or exterior painting, involves a single room or an entire home, we welcome an opportunity to speak with you.

Clean Air, Healthy Home

The health of our painters, the planet, you, and your home is our priority. The Catchlight crew adheres to all OSHA safety standards and is EPA lead-safe certified to work safely and legally wherever lead paint is present. We use professional-grade zero and low-VOC paints because these products are simply healthier for all concerned. We also use negative air machines, HEPA filtered sanders and vacuums, tack-mats and containment sheeting to prevent the spread of dust or debris.

Historic Home Restoration

From historic horsehair plaster and shiplap clapboard to contemporary building materials and everything in-between, each interior and exterior surface has a distinct composition and coating history. Our understanding of surface variation informs the preparation we do and the type of materials we use to correct cracks, stains and problem areas. From buttoning ceilings to restoring rotted wood using two-part epoxies, Catchlight foremen are capable and experienced problem solvers with a focused dedication to thorough surface preparation. We don’t just paint surfaces; we care for and restore them. Catchlight is a proud recipient of the 2016 PIPP Award for Residential Exterior Restoration.

Catchlight Painting is Committed to Community Service

Our company and crew give back annually to the communities we serve. Please be sure to visit our Community Service and Youth Entrepreneur Sponsorship (Y.E.S!) pages.  We encourage Catchlight clients to recommend events, charities, fundraisers and causes that could benefit from complementary painting services, a Painter-For-A-Day donation or direct funding.  Catchlight, home based in West Newton, specializes in historic home restoration, and as a proud sponsor of Historic Newton, was featured in their fall 2016 Corporate Member Spotlight.
