Save time and skip the headaches by decluttering your van
The painter’s van is the central hub of your business—your office on the go. That’s why optimizing your van’s loadout is so important. A disorganized or overcrowded van can make it hard to find what you’re looking for when you need it.

3 reasons Emerald Urethane Trim Enamel may be right for you
Paint choices matter. Knowing which paint to use is key to a successful and profitable interior paint job–especially one that needs to withstand the wear and tear of high-touch surfaces like cabinets, windows, doors, and trim.
With up to 4x faster dry-to-recoat time*, Emerald® Urethane Trim Enamel (EUTE) is one of many PRO+ductive Solutions Sherwin-Williams offers as part of their PRO+ program. PRO+ductive Solutions help contractors save time by completing jobs quickly and generate profit through innovative products and services.
Part of the latest wave of PRO+ductive Solutions, EUTE is a water-based urethane modified alkyd with the look and feel of an alkyd/oil finish. This bold product combines contractor-friendly dry times with the highest quality paint Sherwin-Williams can offer. Consider these three reasons why EUTE may be right for your next job.
Turn color into your competitive advantage
Even though you may feel like more of an expert in products than color, that’s no barrier to helping your customers in their color journey. Thanks to a suite of innovative tools from Sherwin-Williams, you can direct your customers to find the color they’re looking for, learn which colors are trending, and meet virtually with an expert design team to find the perfect palette for them.
These three services can help you leverage color to succeed.
3 proactive ways to build your business
A new year means a new opportunity to find fresh ways to expand and improve your business. Whether you have been running your own business for decades or you’re just getting started, you likely want to know how to take your team to the next level.
Thankfully, Sherwin-Williams offers several productivity-enhancing tools that can help you make 2023 your business’ best year yet, with unique services that can help contractors recruit talented employees, train them in best practices, and save time on the jobsite.
Propose these stylish designs for homeowners
Have you been in this situation before? A potential client is asking for input on which colors to choose for their new home or repainting their existing home, and you don’t have any idea what to tell them. You’re not alone. Many painting contractors say they’re more comfortable recommending products than colors. And even if you’ve brushed up on your color theory, you may still feel uninformed about current design trends.
For contractors seeking resources to help their customers in the color selection process, the 2023 Commercial Colormix from Sherwin-Williams makes an excellent starting point. It offers distinct color palettes for contractors working in the commercial, education, hospitality, new residential, multi-family, and healthcare markets.
Make your jobsite safer and more productive
Selecting the right ladder is an important decision for painting contractors. It’s also an investment in ensuring crew member safety and productivity.
Remember, not all ladders are the same. There are important differences that contractors should consider. The experts at Werner recommend paying attention to four key elements when choosing a ladder: height, duty rating, material, and style.
Have you heard yourself say any of the following?
- “I need to be more productive.”
- “I spend more time on paperwork than painting or growing my business.”
- “Most of my jobs require my crews to be efficient – get in, get out, but do a quality job.”
- “Demand for work is higher than ever, I need my crews to do more jobs to keep up with demand.”
