About UCI Paints
eST. 1970

UCI Paints was a dream of founder Sy Devick, who began manufacturing lacquers and other industrial coatings in East Patterson, New Jersey. After relocating to South Florida in 1969, Sy knew he needed a different chemical composition for his paints to combat the region’s mildew, algae, and tropical climate.

In 1970, Sy began manufacturing "architectural coatings” in Fort Lauderdale, formulated specially to outperform national brand paints not made for use in the tropics.

In 1977, Sy’s son Richard Devick joined the company and since then, UCI Paints has built an outstanding reputation for manufacturing the finest quality coatings for Florida‘s unique climate. We are proud to be a 3rd generation company, as Richard’s son Sam has been working at UCI since 2015.

In an age when brand names seem to dominate, UCI Paints maintains its loyal customer base by manufacturing the finest quality paints and coatings that outperform competitors in our harsh tropical climate, and by providing “hometown” hands-on service.

This has made UCI Paints one of South Florida’s leading paint manufacturers of top-quality architectural coatings, waterproofing systems, and high-performance deck coatings since 1970.

UCI Paints' additional services include contractor referrals, professionally written painting specifications, and full-time on-site paint inspector(s) that assure the adherence of the specified products and workmanship procedures.

Our hands-on service, quality products, and on-site inspections allow us to offer the only true long-term paint warranty that includes material and application failures.
