Meet the Business Owner

James F. Business Owner

As a third generation San Franciscan we understand the paint business and how it relates to our customers in San Francisco. We have had a paint presence in SF since before the earth quake in 1906. Our great grandfather started his first store on Jackson Street in San Francisco in 1889. They repaired and sold glass and paint. Along with my father and son, San Francisco PaintSource is owned and managed by one of the most knowledgeable paint families in Northern California. We'd love to help you out with your paint needs. Stop by and visit the fastest and most complete paint store in San Francisco, the Peninsula and greater Bay Area.
