Benjie, a first-timer at Philconstruct, said interacting with customers and making them smile were what made him excited about his partnership with JDI. Now on his third year as brand ambassador for Sureseal after renewing his contract last May, the PBA star proudly revealed that Sureseal was used for the roofing of their new house. “I know that it really works,” Benjie said. “It’s one of the reasons why I renewed my contract.

“We also used Solignum and Woodshine, ‘yun ‘yung marami akong naubos.”

Knowing that JDI’s products are reputed to be of superior quality, Rizza, meanwhile, said she didn’t think twice about signing up with JDI for her first calendar modeling stint. In fact, Rizza disclosed that her father used Solignum wood preservative for their home.
