F. A. McComas Painting is the most well-experienced commercial painting subcontractor in the San Antonio area and a family-owned business for over 85 years.


Our story began in 1930 with a young man with a family to support and continues down through more than half a century and four generations to the present day. Our story could not be told without our valued customers and friends and our valued employees.

Our founder, Frank McComas, realized his dream when he started a painting business in 1930 with Wilford Jones as his partner. Frank’s son, Frank Anthony donned his painter’s overalls in early 1950 and continued his father’s philosophy building satisfied repeat customers as the building block of the company. In 1975, the third generation of the McComas family, Fred Owen came into the business. He became active in management of the firm and expanded the company from residential painting into commercial painting. The company was incorporated in 1988. The fourth generation McComas, Michael, came into the painting business when he completed college in 2012 and began learning the business from the ground up. The philosophy of Awesome Customer Service and putting our customers first is the vision of the company!
