About us

We like our customers to know us

Who we are

We’re Jeff and Carol Youmans, the owners of Clearwater Painting

Here’s our story and

Our background

Jeff has been a licensed painting contractor, for over 25 years. In 1990,  we started our house painting business in beautiful San Jose, California. We had two small boys at the time. They both were in private schools and Carol was commuting and working a full-time job. Our life was so hectic. After a few years, we knew we needed to spend more time with our kids. So, we moved to hills of northern California where we lived for 25 years.

During that entire time, our family ran a successful painting business. First, we lived in Grass Valley.  Then, in 2000, we moved to Auburn, CA and started Auburn Painting. 

In 2017 as empty nesters, we decided we needed an adventure. So we sold our home and drove across the country with our dog, Mr. Piper. Wow, what a road trip! 

We arrived in Largo in June 2017 and fell in love with the area and the friendly people. 

Jeff semi-retired for about 4 days and became restless. He was ready to get to work again and so was Carol. So in November 2017, we started the licensing process with Pinellas County. Although it was more complicated then we had originally thought it would be, we made lots of friends along the way. 

In January 2018, Jeff received his painting contractor license. 

So, that’s our story. We’re happy to be here. Give us a call for your next painting project.
