City Paint & Tool

About City Paint & Tool

You’ve probably heard the slogan: CITY PAINT & TOOL - WE COAT YOUR WORLD. It’s not just a catchy phrase. Think about the things that make your world safer, brighter, and more comfortable.

Like the white road lines that keep you and your loved ones safe; that home makeover that made your mom-in-law change her mind about you; that classic paint job that made your car look brand new; that waterproofing that keeps the summer rains at bay; that smart roof coat that regulates the temperature of your home or office; and that bold sign outside your new business that brings your customers in

Having been in the business for over 50 years, with 30 years in our current Port Elizabeth location, we’re proud to have earned a rock solid reputation with our customers, while still being at the cutting edge of what’s "hot” in the industry.


Patrick Gillespie and Gavin Biggs are intimately involved with the day to day running of City Paint and Tool and are absolutely committed to providing superior service to the trade and public. Please talk to us - your advice and feedback is what keeps us on our toes.
