Grimes & Sons is run by Una, Alan, and Alex Grimes. We are a family run and owned business and our family has been making paints and stains since 1956. We are proudly Australian made and owned. 

We supply Australia with the finest quality paints, stains, coatings, and finishes for timber, flooring, plaster, brick, straw-bale, and mudbrick, in domestic and commercial markets. Colour creating is a speciality of ours, with home owners, interior designers, and architects all relying on us, often saying we are their secret weapon. We only source the highest quality products and ingredients. We are also stockists of Porter's and Haymes Paints, plus Dulux Industrial Coatings.

New Products or Services

We now have a Colour Spectrophotometer, which means that we have a greater capability to match colours to solid acrylic bases (primarily Haymes bases).


We supply the highest quality products for all manner of residential buildings, from the DIY to professional tradespeople. From undercoats, paints, and renders, to water repellents and floor coatings, we completely cover the coatings stage of building.


Thinking well outside the square, we work closely with many interior designers and architects to develop specialised colours and finishes for many award winning buildings.


Our matching of stone and timber work has allowed the restoration and heritage of many great buildings such as Melbourne University, the State Library, & St. Paul's Cathedral (above).
