Sherwin Williams, Inc. has been a giant in the manufacturing of furniture and other materials for homes for well over a century. The company prides itself on its “high-quality, durable products, which stand the test of time.” And as such, the company has been involved in many major lawsuits including two class action suits involving the use of pesticides. While these are not the only suits that the company has settled, they are two of the most publicized ones, including the largest case so far.
According to Sherwin Williams’ own website, the company is “a company which provides quality home furnishings and interior design solutions. Our customers are our number one priority; we do everything we can to meet their needs.” Their mission statement goes on to say that they strive to provide “an unbeatable customer service experience with affordable prices and exceptional products” through “our innovative strategies, high-quality service and superior materials.” This statement is quite impressive, but one cannot help but wonder how they have become so successful at what they do.
When one looks into Sherwin Williams’ business practices, one can see why people may question how they have become such a success. For starters, they have a long standing reputation for working closely with their customers and employees. They offer a free, confidential consultation to their clients and will even come into your home to assess the overall condition of your living space. This level of personal involvement is definitely more than one would expect from a large chain store like Walmart or Home Depot, and it definitely helps in increasing the likelihood that they will keep their word in the end.
However, there are some things that you should know before you sign a contract with Sherwin Williams. The first thing to know is that there are many types of products they sell. In fact, the company sells both residential and commercial furnishing products and the quality of each is likely to differ greatly.
As it turns out, while Sherwin Williams does primarily sell wood furniture and other materials, they also produce everything from linoleum to carpet. They even manufacture toiletry items and other supplies. There are no shortage of options available to consumers when it comes to the type of home furnishings that they provide, and they offer a large variety in terms of price ranges.
For instance, one of the most common complaints about Sherwin Williams is that they do not offer enough choices in terms of different styles or colors. For example, if you purchase a matching suite for your office, you will likely have to buy the same color and style of fabric in all of the suites, which is not good for your business image. The company does make exceptions in this situation though.
Sherwin Williams does however, offer a full line of accessories and other accessories for your home, but it is important to remember that these can also be quite expensive. There is a reason that people tend to seek out more specialized companies like Fendi, who offer a wide selection of different kinds of furniture for a fraction of the price. However, it is still important to recognize that most of these accessories are usually less durable than what you might find at a Walmart or a discount retailer like Macy’s or Home Depot.
One of the biggest problems that you may encounter with Sherwin Williams is that they are a “one size fits all” company when it comes to furniture. Although they will not hesitate to charge more for their products, it is not uncommon for them to charge a premium for items that are not in demand. So if you are considering purchasing a new furniture set, be sure to do some research into what different retailers are charging for the exact same item.
