In a move it says will boost the brand’s exposure to Millennials and those who prefer to shop online, Benjamin Moore has teamed up with Paintzen, a New York-based on-demand home and office painting service.

Paintzen is a two-year old startup that has been described as the “The Uber of House Painting” offering simplicity, automation and service to the $40 billion U.S. painting industry, according to the companies.

The official collaboration was announced Wednesday (Nov. 11).
