About Us

We believe in quality that lasts. . .

At Old Masters we have the distinct pleasure of producing some of the finest stains and finishes available. We think they’re the best. And although they won’t solve international problems like world peace, they have limitless capacity to solve your staining and finishing dilemmas. And they don’t just fix problems. They have the ability to spark your imagination. No, we haven’t bottled creativity, but we’re certain once you see what our products can do, you’ll be dreaming about your next project. Above all, our products work harder and last longer. We’re driven by this statement: the most expensive product you’ll ever buy is the one that doesn’t work. We’re inspired to create products that work right the first time.

The Old Masters difference. . .

We don’t take short cuts. Period. We spend years perfecting our formulas to ensure you receive the highest quality products. Products that do what we say they’ll do. Products that outperform others in the market place time after time. Since we use only the finest ingredients and never compromise quality, our products are a guarantee of money well spent.

We get our hands dirty. . .

Although we wouldn’t be anything without exceptional products, we wouldn’t have gotten this far without some pretty talented people. Our staff knows our products. We spend hours in the lab formulating and countless hours testing and troubleshooting products in our workshop, so we can expertly answer any question. We have some of the most knowledgeable people in the business. In fact, our competitors hand out our number for technical advice. How’s that for a compliment?

Small town, big values. . .

Buried deep in the heart of rural America, Old Masters calls Iowa home. We are apart of a family owned business that’s been around since 1926. Like many family owned businesses, Old Masters was built on the backs of hard working folks. Our founder, a Dutch immigrant, began formulating paint in his garage and soon began selling it to farm implement factories around the Midwest. Today, the company has seven manufacturing facilities and employs over 800 people. The truth is, ingenuity and elbow grease has been the framework in which Old Masters has grown and continues to thrive.
