Professional Staff

Professional Staff

National Lumber and Babel’s dynamic, knowledgeable and professional sales staff specialize in architectural and industrial coatings.

From detailed product information to job quotes, they will help you complete any size project to meet your desired results and your clients’ expectations.

One service that sets us apart is that we can match virtually any color for paint, stain and lacquer to any object, in any size or shape – such as a shutter, metal gutter, cabinet door or furniture — with our state-of-the-art iVue Spectrophotometer.

If your paint sprayer, power washer or air compressor needs service, drop off the equipment at any of our stores and we will help get your machine repaired promptly.

Submittals and Specifications

For the contractor, if you have bid on or received a painting project, our sales team will prepare professional paint product submittals for you to give to the architect and/or property owner. This will show them the high quality products you will use. These submittals will include Product Technical Data sheets, Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS), as well as color samples of the products that will be used. Submittals are professionally prepared and will be provided in the number of copies needed to suit your project.

For property owners and builders, we will visit your site and prepare professional painting specifications for bidding purposes. This will list each type of substrate to be painted, the surface preparation to be taken, primer to be used, and the type and number of finish coats.
