Marketing research company J.D. Power recently released its annual U.S. Paint Satisfaction Study, with Benjamin Moore and BEHR topping the lists for customer satisfaction in the interior paint segment.

The 2018 study found that sales associate engagement with customers was crucial—satisfaction was significantly higher among customers who spoke to a sales rep at length versus briefly or not at all. Customer satisfaction also led to advocacy and loyalty, with 76 percent of “delighted” customers saying they “definitely will” recommend the brand to others.

Company Rankings

In the interior paint, exterior paint and exterior stain segments, satisfaction was tallied in six areas: application, durability, in-store color displays and printed materials, price, product offerings, and warranty/guarantee. For paint retailers, satisfaction is scored in five areas: merchandise, price, sales and promotions, staff and service, and store facility.
