Benjamin Moore Paint Factory!

Showing We Care About Every Painting Project!

From staying with you from start to finish on your home painting projects, Pound Ridge Painting also likes to get involved and get out there to show our vendors that because of them, we are able to provide nothing but the best for our past, present and future clients. Friday, March 1, Emma, our Office Assistant, took a trip to Flanders, New Jersey to see where all the magic happens and how a can of paint came to be.

Flanders, New Jersey is home to the Benjamin Moore paint testing factory. We had the opportunity to learn more about a variety of topics, from what paints go where and what finishes cover mark ups best followed by a two hour Q&A session that let all the contractors interact with some of the most brilliant and resourceful people of Benjamin Moore Paint testing factory. With so many new things learned, a personal favorite was to hear about their weather machine.

Benjamin Moore Paint factory has a huge outdoor testing area where they apply their own paint as well as all the competitors to see the coverage, wear and tear and  aging that comes from uncontrollable weather.  In addition to their outdoor testing area, they have a few machines on the inside where they replicate outdoor weather conditions with UV lights, water and temperature controls. They can have results from the inside machines in 1-6 months which would take 3-5 years outside.

With so much learned Pound Ridge Painting cant wait to begin the new painting season with you! We are proud to learn about all of the latest products and bring our knowledge to your project, give us a call at 914-764-5259 or stop by and visit out office at 54 Westchester Ave., Pound Ridge NY and set up your free estimate!
