Colorize Inc., a locally owned and operated paint and decorating store, was founded on a shared vision. Long-term friends Don Duttine and Mike Coffey wanted to put their decades of experience in the paint industry into a company of their own. They saw the need for a store that would offer customers unequaled personal service and professional advice as well as a comprehensive stock of top-quality products. With the goal of becoming the Clifton Park area’s leader in the paint and decorating market, and with the support of Benjamin Moore, they opened Colorize in 2016.
In one sense, then, Colorize is a very young company. It is quickly gaining a reputation as the place to go for the most helpful information about products, techniques, troubleshooting, and best practices for any paint project. Customers appreciate the large inventory of paints, stains, primers, finishes, supplies, wall coverings, and window treatments that makes the store a one-stop shopping destination for professional paint contractors and do-it-yourselfers alike.
In another sense, Colorize offers the benefits of extensive experience in and deep-rooted knowledge of the paint and decorating industry. For over 25 years, Don Duttine worked as a painting contractor, estimator, and manager for the world’s largest paint retailer, where Mike Coffey also worked in the business for nearly twenty years. Both men held a variety of responsible positions throughout New England and the Mid Atlantic states.
