Exterior Painting Contractors
Consistent Quality and Reliability Beyond Your Expectations
As a prominent exterior painting company in the Newton area since 1999, we aren't done with the job until you're happy. We've painted over 3,000 homes to include aluminum siding, vinyl siding, wood, and stucco structures.
You may be looking to revive your home's exterior paint color scheme or step up curb appeal for selling the house in the future. But aside from aesthetics, exterior painting is an opportunity to give your home a check-up to catch moisture problems, wood rot, mold and mildew, insect invasion, energy loss, and other items silently doing harm.

"John and the ProTEK team was professional from start to finish. John did a thorough examination of our property and provided a fair quote. His team showed up on time and did the work in record-breaking time! He was even quick to respond and deliver on follow-up requests we had after the work was finished. ProTEK will be my first call for painters going forward."

What to Expect of the Exterior Painting Process
From the time of your estimate through your satisfaction inspection, you'll have easy access to John or his team when questions arise.
- What Happens at the Estimate Appointment?
The appointment takes 30-60 minutes, depending on the complexity of your project. First, we ask you to walk around the exterior of the house with us to ensure we understand your expectations. We'll discuss things like repair and maintenance, paint product options, and color choices. Then we'll spend some time on our own getting measurements and preparing the cost estimate.
Last, we'll sit down with you, go over the proposal, and answer your questions. Our proposals are extremely detailed and extra work can be itemized so you know upfront the total cost to paint your house.
- How Do I Choose a Color Scheme?
The magnitude of color options, and shades within the same color, requires some effort on your part. Though we'll gladly offer our opinions and feedback, we suggest you bring home samples from your local paint store and learn how to work with a paint color chart before choosing exterior painting colors.
You can also meet with our Benjamin Moore or Sherwin-Williams color specialist free of charge. And if you can get a small sample, computer matching technology provides an almost exact color match of another home's exterior.
- What Preparation Work is Done Before Painting?
In general, exterior painting preparation includes pressure washing, light carpentry, scraping, sanding, caulking, priming, and then painting. But it depends on the condition of the siding and trim. Our painters and carpenters have resolved even the most challenging exterior house painting problems.
"When customers go back to the same service provider again and again, that's usually the best recommendation. That's the case for us with John Guarino and his crew at ProTek Painters. John's crew painted our 1929 colonial in Newton about a dozen years ago, and we've just used him to do it again. In between, we used ProTek to paint the entire interior. Each time, the prep work was first-rate, which is essential. Careful power-washing, spot sanding and priming. The crew works extremely hard, and John used a huge gang of eight or so for our house so the job was done in two long days. Scheduling was easy. The crew is respectful of shrubs and grounds and cleans up carefully. We decided to add some extras and John obliged at a reasonable additional charge. His quote was a bit higher than the lowest bidder, but way below the top quote. An excellent and professional experience overall. Again."
