PPG’s Pittsburgh Paints & Stains (Cranberry Township, PA) has introduced a new premium line of paints and stains geared toward professionals and DIY consumers.

Available exclusively at Menards stores, the new Paramount line combines technology and style to produce a vibrant formula for both interior and exterior surfaces, the company says.


The paints and stains are recommended for a variety of exterior and interior surfaces.

In developing the Paramount paint and stain line, the manufacturer says it leveraged PPG automotive and industrial coatings technologies.

Interior and Exterior Paints

The paints are available in a palette of nearly 900 colors. The line’s interior paint-and-primer-in-one formula offers stain blocking and hiding, and a durable and washable protective shield, the company says.

In addition, the Paramount exterior paint-and-primer-in-one formula offers adhesion that resists cracking and peeling, and contains technology that offers ultra-violet (UV) protection to help color keep its vibrancy and resist fading, PPG reports.

Wood Stains

An assortment of exterior wood care products—Paramount Stain, Paramount Toner, Paramount Advanced Penetrating Oil and Paramount Fine Wood Finish—also make up the line. Those products boast rich pigmentation, UV protection, and provide a mildew- and algae-resistant coating, according to the manufacturer.

The stain-and-sealant-in-one product is available in 42 solid, 14 semitransparent and semisolid colors. The Fine Wood Finish product is available in 13 satin semitransparent colors.

Paramount paint starts at $40 per gallon and Paramount stain starts at $38 per gallon.
