Things you need to know about... Alberni Colour Corner

Paint:

1

Benjamin Moore paint products are Earth and People friendly: Our waterborne products have the “Green Promise” formulated with our patented waterborne technology which means it is environmentally friendly, low to Zero VOC’s, low odour and often exceed industry standard. Our products are safe for pregnant women, nursing mothers, medical facilities and people that have asthma or allergies. Benjamin Moore has over 3000 beautiful colours that can only truly be created in our Superior paint products at a cost to suit your budget. Who says designer products need to be expensive? We have the eye to colour match any other colour not created by Benjamin Moore.

2

Flooring: At Alberni Colour Corner we have a wide Variety of Bamboo,

3

wood, engineered wood, laminate, tile, vinyl and carpet to choose from (special order). Your home is your investment and beautiful quality flooring is a very important investment in any home. Before buying your new floor, make sure you read the fine print on Warranties covered by the distributor. A lot of inexpensive flooring may say lifetime warranty but it is in your best interest to find out what is NOT covered. Cleaning your floors with Vinegar is a difinate NO-NO and can void your warranty. “Bona” our Swedish Formula floor cleaning products are safe for all floor surfaces. Bona will clean your floor without harming your top coat or substrate.

Custom Blinds:

Now that you have your paint and floors, you can’t forget to cover your windows. At Alberni Colour Corner we also carry a wide variety of custom blinds; Levolor, Habitat, Shade-o-matic (Atmosphere) and Graber. Finish off the look of any room with our beautiful Cellular, Pleated, Wood or Rollershade selection. Patio doors can be complete with Vertical or Panel Track. It’s all in your imagination!!
