Paint Plus of Braintree: “Family is everything”

House painting is more than a job for Shawn and Bridget Goldthwaite of Braintree. These business partners operate their company, Paint Plus, to honor their marriage, family, and love of community. 

In fact, Bridget gets emotional watching Shawn and their son, crew member John Brady, paint shoulder to shoulder. “Family is everything. This is why I do this,” she says.

That family also includes Bridget and Shawn’s other son, Jeremy, who is in the Army reserves and served a tour of duty in Saudi Arabia.

Shawn (front) and John are the father/son team of Paint Plus.

Founded in 2004, Paint Plus does exterior and interior painting, light carpentry, wallpaper removal, compounding, gutter cleaning/repair, color consultation, and custom color mixing. They take both residential and commercial jobs. 

The company is fully insured and offers a one-year guarantee on work.

Paint Plus prides itself on professionalism, quality work, creativity, and communication. “We’re really good at problem-solving and always try to save the homeowners money,” says Shawn.

Since painters are often the last trade working onsite, John says they follow a motto: “‘Campsite rules: Leave the site better than you found it.’ We always try to go above and beyond.”

Shawn also purchases paint and supplies from Braintree shops to support local businesses.

To honor fellow military families, the Goldthwaites give service members and veterans a 10 percent discount on labor.

Seniors also receive 10 percent off the labor fee.
