Professionals

We are here for the Professionals.

After 37 years working with Professional Painters, General Contractors, Architects, Developers, Purchasing Departments and Property Managers from around the world, Andy (the owner) knows the Architectural, Commercial and Industrial Coatings business. That experience has helped us develop a service model, honed in our King City store for the past 6 years, now launched in Kingston to lead the market.

It starts with the right team

Passionate, friendly and knowledgeable staff were carefully selected and trained to deliver what a professional needs in a fast, efficient and accurate way. We have designers to help take the pressure off colour selection, excellent in field representation and in store support.

…and the right products

You and your customers know Benjamin Moore, it is the most widely accepted paint brand and your clients will be happy if this is the paint on your jobsite. But what you may not know is that Benjamin Moore has intensified their focus on the professional, with innovative products, special pricing programs and a rewards program. As the only designated “Authorized Retailer Plus” in Kingston, our commitment to being a single line Benjamin Moore retailer ensures we are the only store in town that can unlock all of these programs.

In the right environment

A large paint and sundries inventory, the latest MetaVue colour matching equipment, professional draw downs, thorough record keeping equipment, a Pro Zone with our monthly specials, a décor environment that will appeal to your customers all within our 4,200 sq ft store. And don’t forget the best espresso and coffee around!

With the best services

Site visits, specification writing, cost benefit analysis of coating systems, free delivery, extended hours, after hour pick up area, lead referral program, company discount programs, training sessions are all available.

With the right offer

A quick conversation to understand your business, your needs and expectations. A discussion on competitive pricing, a setting up of your account and we are all set to go!

It grows with our passion

We get this business... Jobs are competitive, pricing has to be right. Mistakes cost time. You need product right away. You need solid professional advice. When something goes wrong, you want your store to have your back. We care… relationships are formed over time, solidified by trust.
