BADILLA PAINTERS “We hold ourselves to the highest levels of quality in performance, communication and coordination, and it has made us the go-to for high-end projects.”



JOE BADILLA, PRESIDENT 631.537.3000 badillapainters

he objective at Badilla Painters may be beautifying surfaces, but the firm’s approach to doing so is anything but surface level. Instead, its mission rests on two concepts: innovation and intentionality. By studying leaders in the industry, Badilla Painters stays on top of trends and provides builders, architects, designers and homeowners with wellrounded insight. This includes prioritizing eco-friendly materials and discovering products that offer high-quality texture and finish. “We are always doing research and looking for new products on the market,” says Joe Badilla, president of Badilla Painters. In the past year, the

company has added three products to its portfolio of interior and exterior finishings. The additions—a rapid-drying curing technique dependent on UV light, a paintable magnetic plaster and a new painting process for metallic finishes— offer clients the opportunity for customization and a painless upgrade. Beyond conducting research and growing its services, Badilla Painters also places importance on communication, coordination and efficiency. “When somebody asks for something, I won’t only look at what they are asking for,” Badilla says. “I also look beyond that to find the intention behind it, working tirelessly to connect the dots for the final product.”

ASK THE EXPERT What inspirations inform your work? We’re influenced by paint manufacturers like Farrow & Ball, Benjamin Moore, Pantone and Sherwin-Williams. We are also influenced by nature. So many colors are right in front of us, daily. What style are you known for? Our style is ‘accommodating.’ We understand the needs of designers, architects and builders. We know that the texture and finish on a wall are just as important for a traditional-style environment as they are for a modern, minimalist space. What type of project would you love to take on? We’ve been blessed to receive a variety of projects, from penthouses in Manhattan to exclusive estates on the water. Our team would love to work on a castle.
