Benchmark and Benchmark 2 Finishing Options

  • Purchase a factory paint finish in the color of your choice.

Any Benchmark door that is primed only before leaving our factory must be field-finished on all six sides before installation in order to maintain the warranty.

Benchmark SP Finishing Options

  • Colors with an LRV value above 60 are permitted.
