With National Painting Week, we will team up once again to bring this shared focus to the broader community."

"Sherwin-Williams and KB Home have been great partners for almost two decades, sharing similar values such as the importance of giving back to the communities in which we live and work," said Tom Little, national director of homebuilder sales, Sherwin-Williams.
