Paint, Stain & Primer

Whether you’re a contractor or a homeowner, one of the best ways to protect a house is with high-quality paint and stain. For durability and long-lasting beauty, your nearby Spahn & Rose store offers complete lines of stain, as well as interior and exterior paint. Spahn & Rose’s expert staff can also help you determine whether paint or stain is better for your project. Spahn & Rose has a complete selection of primer, too, so you’ll get the job done right the first time.

Interior Paint

Contractors and homeowners can select from a variety of interior paint finishes—from matte to satin and everything in between. Spahn & Rose’s paint selection includes brands that are safe to use indoors and easy to clean up, and at Spahn & Rose locations, you can have any paint color matched exactly to your needs.

Exterior Paint

Given the dramatic weather and temperature shifts in eastern Iowa, Northwest Illinois and Southwest Wisconsin, you need an exterior paint that has a tough finish and resists peeling, chipping and fading. As your local paint experts, Spahn & Rose staff can help you choose the best paint to protect your home.

Interior Stain

For all kinds of woodworking and finishing projects, interior stain from Spahn & Rose enhances the natural grain of interior wood surfaces such as furniture, cabinets, doors, trim and more. Spahn & Rose stain experts can explain how applying additional coats can customize the look you desire.

Exterior Stain

Exterior stain doesn’t just change wood’s natural color—it also protects decks, trim and other outdoor wood from the elements. Spahn & Rose offers a selection of exterior stain, including translucent, semi-transparent, semi-solid and solid, to match your project needs.


Think of primer as a foundation: Lay a strong base and the paint will stay vibrant longer. There’s a primer for every type of wall material and substrate. Spahn & Rose paint experts can help you select the best primer for your project.
