Cal Fire

When Bob Hathaway founded South Bay Paints in 1990, he made community his primary focus.

Giving Back to Those Who Serve

We proudly donated funds to Cal Fire to support the Fire fighters and First Responders who are working tirelessly to keep Santa Clara and Santa Cruz Counties safe. Get up-to-date information on current fires and containment from Cal Fire here.

First Responder’s and Military Discounts

To First Responders, Veterans, and Military Families serving our community, we want to give back. We have created a special First Responder’s Discount and a Military Discount valid at any of our three stores. They will not expire, and they offer the best rate South Bay Paints can offer. We’ll be here when you’re ready to start a project, and so will our contractors. Call or stop by today to redeem your First Responder’s or Military Discount. Find promo code details here. And if you’re seeking a paint contractor, we can refer you to highly-qualified and reputable contractors who meet your specific needs.

Health and Safety

Nothing means more to us than the health and safety of our customers, staff, and community. We adhere to all Santa Clara County
