PPG PAINTS Brand Launches Preferred Homeowner Portal, Offers Paint Discounts to New-Home Buyers

Portal provides builders opportunity to offer discounts on any PPG
paint brand

CRANBERRY TOWNSHIP, Pa.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The PPG PAINTS™ brand today announced the launch of its new Preferred
Homeowner Portal – a website that provides discounts and rebates off
retail pricing to new-home buyers, making paint touchups and updates
easier.

“The PPG Paints brand is digitizing how contractors provide
painting kits to new-home buyers, making it easier and more efficient to
supply exactly what homeowners need to keep the paint perfect in their
new homes,” said Tracy Pease, senior marketing manager, PPG Paints
stores.

The site offers discounts and coupons for paint and paint accessories to
buyers of houses built by contractors who use PPG Paints
products. Redeemable at any U.S. PPG Paints store or at
participating independent retailers, the discount includes an ongoing 50
percent off paint and up to 25 percent off paint accessories, in
addition to one free gallon of paint to match the builder’s chosen color
scheme and touch up any scuffs left during move-in. If there is no PPG
Paints
store nearby, homeowners can instead enjoy a mail-in rebate
of $5 off per gallon of paint at more than 15,000 retail locations that
sell other quality paint products by PPG, such as GLIDDEN®
paint at THE HOME DEPOT® and WALMART® stores,
OLYMPIC® Paints and Stains at LOWE’S® stores,
PITTSBURGH PAINTS & STAINS® products at MENARDS®
stores, and PPG PITTSBURGH PAINTS® products at independent
retailers. The site also includes a convenient store locator for easier
shopping decisions, and it offers helpful indoor and outdoor painting
tips to guide homeowners.

“Color has the ability to turn your house into a home. At PPG, we want
to help homeowners get the perfect colors with our exceptional products,
at a great price,” Pease said. “Customers can be assured that they’ll
find quality PPG products anywhere they decide to shop for their
home-improvement projects.”

The benefits of the new website extend beyond those for homeowners.
Thousands of builders that use PPG Paints products also will
receive a suite of benefits from using the Preferred Homeowner Portal,
including a quick and efficient way to provide customers with products
they need to keep their new homes looking great. Professionals also can
customize the URL and add a company logo to the site, making it
personalized to their firm and customer base. To view the Preferred
Homeowner Portal, visit http://homebuilder.ppgpaints.com/ppgpaints.
