Paint Stores

Serving Do-It-Yourselfers and Professionals Alike

Paint Stores in the San Gabriel Valley

There are hundreds of specialized paint stores in San Gabriel Valley as well as in other parts of Los Angeles County. In addition, paint and related paint products are sold through big box home improvement retailers such as Lowe's and Home Depot. You can also find paint at hardware stores including True Value hardware stores and OSH.

Paint stores sell paint and paint products directly to the retail customer, for do-it-yourself painting projects. Paint stores also act as part of the distribution channel for professional painting contractors.

Paint Stores Offer Expert Advice

Many paint stores have well-trained, experienced staff that can offer expert advice to the paint purchaser. If you are purchasing paint directly from a paint store, we recommend that you try to find a store that does, indeed, have knowledgeable staff members who can help you with your purchase. Some stores may cut corners by employing inexperienced or poorly trained sales people.

When Buying Paint, Quality Matters

Paint stores carry a broad range of paint quality. Cheap, inferior paint products often wind up costing the home owner more money in the long run. Even if you budget is tight, consider choosing a high quality paint when painting your home, condominium, apartment or business. Quality paint covers better, lasts longer, and does a better job of protecting the underlying surfaces from the ravages of sun, wind, rain and airborne pollution.

When to Do It Yourself

As professional painting contractors, we, naturally, would prefer that you hire us to paint your home, rather than attempt to paint it yourself. But sometimes you might just want to handle your own paint job. Here are some pros and cons to help you decide.

Do It Yourself

Paint it yourself project

Do-it-yourself projects can be most successful when the following conditions are present:

  • The project is quite small, say one bedroom
  • Underlying surfaces are free of lead-based paint or other hazardous materials
  • Underlying surfaces are in good shape and need little repair
  • All surfaces are within easy reach
  • You have plenty of time
  • You must apply multiple coats to avoid spotty, unattractive results
  • You must painstakingly mask--and later paint--all trim components
  • You don't mind cleaning up and disposing of leftover paint and other materials
  • You don't have better things to do with your time
