What Paint Does Custom Painting, Inc. Use for Commercial Painting?

What Paint Does Custom Painting, Inc. Use for Commercial Painting?Commercial painting is about choosing high-performance coatings that handle almost anything. This makes sense— commercial properties really take a beating from the elements. They face relentless weather, heavy foot traffic, and even air pollution from smoke and soot that can degrade paint quality over time. Rust can also appear on metal surfaces, which can be a real challenge.

The right choice of paint not only enhances the aesthetic appeal of your property but also provides a durable shield against environmental wear and tear. That’s why at Custom Painting, Inc., we meticulously choose our paint brands to ensure top-quality results for every project.

Here’s a quick look at our preferred paint brands, each selected for their exceptional performance in commercial applications:

  • Sherwin-Williams: Known for its robust range of options that are suitable for various exterior and interior needs.
  • Benjamin Moore: Offers innovative technologies for vivid, long-lasting colors.
  • Behr: Ideal for eco-friendly projects with low VOC options.
  • Valspar: Provides specialty coatings for unique commercial needs.
  • Rust-Oleum: Best for projects requiring maximum durability against rust and wear.

Each of these brands has been chosen based on their proven track record in enhancing and protecting commercial properties. Join us as we delve deeper into what makes these brands stand out and how they can transform your commercial spaces.

Why Paint Quality Matters for Commercial Spaces

The paintwork for commercial spaces isn’t just for aesthetics—it is a functional component that protects your walls from wear and tear, UV rays, and even the occasional coffee spill. 

Why settle for paint that only looks good if it doesn’t last? High-quality paints maintain their color and finish much longer than lower-quality alternatives. This is crucial for commercial spaces that aim to always present a pristine, professional appearance. Remember, the way your space looks reflects directly on your business, which influences both customer perceptions and employee satisfaction.

But there’s more to paint than just surface beauty. Today’s top-quality paints have enhanced functionalities: They resist mold and mildew, are easier to clean, and emit fewer odors. These features are essential for maintaining a healthy indoor environment, especially in places with fluctuating temperatures or high humidity levels.

Sherwin-Williams paints are a staple in our toolkit, especially when we tackle big, bold commercial projects. Favorites like Duration, Emerald, and Resilience don’t just cover walls; they protect them. Duration offers excellent coverage—often in just one coat—and comes with a lifetime warranty, which is a real win for repainting projects. For areas that battle moisture, Resilience steps up with MoistureGuard technology, making it a superhero in wet climates.

Sherwin-Williams is exclusively sold at Lowe’s or at its own outlets. We’ve used its paints on everything from bustling warehouses to cozy cafes, and they always make us look good.

Benjamin Moore

Benjamin Moore isn’t just old; he’s innovative. Using Gennex and Color Lock technologies, their paints bring out colors that pop and finishes that last. Their Aura line is a dream for spaces that need a quick, stunning facelift that’s easy on the environment, thanks to its low VOCs.

We’ve splashed Benjamin Moore across walls in chic boutiques and serene office spaces, where color and quality must be maintained.


Behr’s Premium Plus and Ultra lines are our go-to for both indoors and out. They dry fast, stand strong against scuffs, and keep those pesky mold and mildew spots at bay. Plus, with low VOCs, they’re as gentle on the air as they are tough on wear and tear.

Available at every Home Depot, Behr is our quick pick for a quality job that needs to start yesterday and last for years.
