Benjamin Moore Colors Cannot be Matched by Competitors


Benjamin Moore colors can only be made with Benjamin Moore paint.While competitors
claim they can match any color, it just isn't true. The reason lies in the manufacturing
process. Benjamin Moore paints are created using proprietary colorants and resins
formulated with their patented waterborne technology. This highly controlled system
ensures the quality and purity of color you expect. When you buy from us you are getting premium quality paint - and color - available only from Benjamin Moore.

Waterborne stains with superior performance


ARBORCOAT is a super premium waterborne deck and siding stain.
With it's patented Gennex waterborne colorant Benjamin Moore has defined a
new generation of paint, creating
unparalleled ultimate performance
coatings. Now it's doing the same for
stain, delivering a low odor/ low-VOC
product that's well below the strictest
VOC regulations yet astonishingly
superior in performance to conventional stains.


 "A waterborne exterior stain is not a
new concept," explained Carl Minchew, director of product development for
Benjamin Moore, "but, ARBORCOAT is succeeding where others previously
have failed. In short, it's an advanced technology for preserving wood. And, it's another Benjamin Moore innovation coup - one that reflects the company's unceasing drive to research and develop high quality products respectful of the environment and the planet."


Paint SamplesSample Jar
600 colors available

Benjamin Moore Color Samples allow you to "try on" a color before you commit to the time and expense of painting an entire room. By sampling a color at home, you'll get the most accurate sense of how the color will actually look in the room. Each 2 oz. sample covers approximately a 2' X 2' area with two coats of paint.
You can test a number of different colors at a time. You can also paint smaller
test swatches on several walls to see how a particular color will look throughout a room.

 Why Sample Color?

  • Deciding between several shades and tints of a particular color (light, medium or dark color)
  • Experimenting with several different colors before deciding on a color scheme for the room.
  • Determining how a particular color works with other colors in the room such as a vibrant rug.
  • Seeing how a particular color in a room will "flow" with the colors in adjoining rooms.
  • Seeing how different undertones of a color affect the feel of a room.
  • Seeing how a particular color is enhanced by lighting conditions.

 Always view your colors in different lighting conditions:

  • Direct sunlight
  • Indirect sunlight
  • Artificial sunlight
