Republic Paint

No dig at the "big-box" home centers intended, but they can't match Republic Paint. Looking for just "that" color for the bathroom? They'll find it. Aren't sure how to prepare your oil-painted surfaces for a new coat of latex paint? They got you covered. Want only low-odor coatings? No problem. They have tools, gadgets, and decorative paints, too. Whether you're a do-it-yourselfer or a contractor, all customers are treated with equal importance. Republic Paint sells Benjamin Moore, a paint with such smooth performance that the extra couple bucks per gallon is totally worth it. Republic's South Congress location also sells Pratt & Lambert, a brand especially loved by decorators for its exciting palette of colors.
