Q: Why do you use Benjamin Moore Paint?
A: I’ve used many brands of paint, and I’ve found that Benjamin Moore Paint goes on well, looks good for years, resists stains and scuffs, and cleans well. If a customer insists on another brand, we can and will use it. However, most of my customers demand and appreciate that we use Benjamin Moore Paints.
Q: Can customers get another brand’s color in Benjamin Moore Paint?
A: Yes, if they have the color’s name and the brand’s code number off the swatch or old paint can. We can get any color made up from any brand in a Benjamin Moore Paint.
Q: Should homeowners paint it themselves?

Q: John, you have often said you have paint in your blood—what did you mean?
A: Funny that people ask about that. I’ve run John’s Painting Contractor in central and northern New Jersey for nearly 30 years. The thing that most people don’t know is that I was a New York City painting inspector for more than 20 years. In fact, I grew up around the paint business. My mom and dad, owned a local paint store in Queens, NY for many years.

Furthermore, I’m not a “jack-of-all-trades”. Some of my competitors want to try and do everything. I believe in specializing in paints and applied coatings like stains and sealants. If a customer needs a major rebuild, I know many specialized contractors who can help them do it right—like us.
