Benjamin Moore Interior Ultra Spec
Here in 2012, there have been several changes and additions to both Benjamin Moore and Sherwin Williams paint lines. Zero VOC and raw material cost seem to be the biggest changes. Zero VOC paints have become more plentiful and the price for these products has significantly declined.
Sherwin Williams has finally wised up. They are in the midst of introducing their water based tinting system. This is great news for both homeowners and painting contractors. This new introduction will significantly increase the performance of many products. It will decrease the likelihood of hatbanding and will make many of the Zero VOC product lines truly zero VOC. Also with the Sherwin William’s new tinting introduction, it establishes more competition for the Zero VOC leader Benjamin Moore. As house painting contractors, we hope that the competition will put a hold on some of the recent price increases from both companies.
Benjamin Moore paints have introduced a few changes as well. They have introduced a new product at a great price point. The new product is called Ultra Spec. Benjamin Moore used to be identified as a high-end clientele based product. Now they also have wised up and introduced more competitively priced products for house painting. There is not much of an argument when asked which paint manufacturer provides a product with excellent raw materials with great application. Benjamin Moore is one of the top choices.
Painting is finally truly becoming more Green and less of a health risk. This is great news for painters and our environment and we are happy to see the change.
