We want our store to be more than the place where you buy your paint.

We want to be your information center, your resource library . . . your paint experts.

Chattanooga Paint & Decorating sources the best paint and sundry products in the industry. The company stands by its products and the brands that it represents. It is committed to quality and customer satisfaction. But the thing that really sets this store apart from the myriad of other places you could buy your paint, is the staff.
