Here at Longmont Paint Pals we try our best not to be bias about paints and really search for the best products available to offer our customers. In Colorado Sherwin Williams is by far the easiest and best company for painting contractors to work with. The main reason for this is because Sherwin Williams paint stores are designed to work with painting contractors and homeowners, whereas the big box hardware stores like Home Depot, Lowes, and Ace are designed more to work with homeowners or a more generalized contractors such as handymen, and not necessarily just painting contractors. It is much easier to get large orders of paint quickly from Sherwin Williams than the big box hardware stores, furthermore in Colorado Sherwin Williams has many more store locations than any other paint stores so usually there is a Sherwin Williams store within 20 minutes of the painters job site. This is why if you as a homeowner in Colorado and get multiple estimates most of the painters will tell you they use Sherwin William and it is the best paint. When you actually look at paints individually and put them in 3rd party test you may find that the paints that are easiest for the contractor to use in their business aren’t always the best paints available. Our goal at Longmont Paint Pals is to educate our customers that want to be educated on paint and let the homeowner pick the paint that they want to use on their home. We also know that many customers are busy and or are not that interested in paint tech and just want their painting contractor to recommend and quality paint that is going to last.
