Choosing a paint store with decades of experience and vast knowledge in paint products is critical when planning your next project. The experts at Jones Paint & Glass understand how important it is to use products that will keep your home looking beautiful for years to come. Picking the right kind of paint is just as essential as selecting the perfect color. 

Jones Paint & Glass stocks paint from three leading manufacturers: PPG, Benjamin Moore and Dunn-Edwards. Within each brand are options ranging from contractor-grade to retail-grade. If you’re taking on a DIY project, sales representative Todd Maxwell recommends buying higher quality paint. 

“With paint, you get what you pay for,” he said. “You’ll need to spend a little more on product, hopefully because you don’t want to do it again.” 

The experts at Jones Paint & Glass will help you find – or create – the perfect product for whatever you’re working on. If something needs to be sprayed instead of brushed, they make custom aerosol cans in virtually any color. They can color match every type of interior or exterior paint or stain. 

“It’s not a one-size-fits-all,” Maxwell said. “There are certain products for certain applications. The more we know about what you’re doing, the better recommendations we can give you.”

Jones Paint & Glass carries more brands and products than any other paint store in Southern Utah, Maxwell said. And with 26 years on the job, he’s one of many highly experienced paint specialists ready to assist with any project.  

“We’ve seen about everything you can run into as a homeowner,” he said. “There’s yet to be a question that I haven’t already answered.”  

When you’re ready to get started, Maxwell said prep work is essential for success. That may include patching, sanding or possibly applying primer. Even with a beautiful new color, imperfections on a surface like holes and gouges will still show through. Take your time and do it right the first time so you don’t have to repeat the process, spending more time, effort and money. 

Beyond an extensive paint supply, Jones Paint & Glass offers a wide variety of home improvement products as well as commercial services and automotive glass repair. They’re the family-owned window, door, paint and glass store that Utahns have counted on for more than 80 years. The company operates seven locations across the state, including St. George and Cedar City, and employs over 200 industry experts.

Harold Jones founded the company in Provo in 1938 amid the economic turmoil of the Great Depression. His parents, believing in his vision, took out a $300 loan to help him get started and used their furniture as collateral. Despite minimal inventory and only himself as crew, his unwavering commitment to quality products and superior service soon had him competing with some of the largest providers in the area.

Decades later, Jones Paint & Glass has grown from a one-man show into a flourishing company serving residential and commercial customers across the Intermountain West. They continue to manufacture their signature line of vinyl windows in Utah. The business, now run by Jones’s grandson, upholds the core values on which it was founded.
