What do Painters do?

Professional Painters are responsible for preparing and painting interior and exterior surfaces. These professionals may work in various industries, such as residential and commercial properties. Aside from their day-to-day job duties, Painters may also be responsible for managing employees (especially if they head up their own company), handling finances, and ensuring customer satisfaction.

Usually, a Painter learns his trade on the job or through an apprenticeship. With on-the-job training, it is possible to start a painting career. It is also possible to pursue post secondary training at a technical school before entering the painting career.

What are the typical job duties of a London  Painter?

Preparing painting surfaces by washing walls, repairing holes, sanding surfaces, and/or removing old paint.

Mixing, matching, and applying paints and other finishes to a variety of surfaces.

Providing the necessary finishes according to project requirements.

Preparing the surrounding area by covering furnishings / surfaces with cloth or plastic.

Calculating the amount of materials and time needed to successfully complete a painting project.

Removing necessary fixtures like door knobs and light switch covers.

Taping off areas as required.

Choosing and buying the relevant paint, brushes, and other supplies.

Quoting and negotiating job prices.

Cleaning up an area and supplies, plus replacing the necessary fixtures after completing a project.

Effectively communicating with a client before, during, and after a project to ensure customer satisfaction.

What skills will a London painter need?

·         Communication skills: Not all people can effectively communicate what they want (or don’t want) from a project; thus, it is vital for a Painter to draw out the needed information from a client. Good communication means hearing and respecting what the client wants, not only what the professional thinks they should want.

·         Aesthetic sense: While some clients will need the Painter to make some judgment calls in their work, others will directly ask for advice. Thus, it’s important for a Painter to have a strong sense of what looks good.

·         Detail-oriented: It’s the details (such as crisp, clean edges, plus even coats) that mean the difference between an average paint job and a great one.

·         Familiarity with the right tools: Painters must know how to distinguish between numerous brushes, rollers, scrapers, sanders, and texturing tools, depending on the requirements of the project.

·         Familiarity with the right materials: Paint doesn’t just differ by colour – texture, drying time, thickness, and numerous other factors are also vital. Then there are primers, varnishes, sealers, and finishes to consider.

·         Physical dexterity, strength, and balance: In order to achieve a nice, clean coat, a Painter must have good manual dexterity. But they also require adequate strength and ergonomic skills to move equipment safely and efficiently, plus a strong sense of balance to do their job perfectly while standing on roofs and ladders.

·         Effective time management: A lot of Painters spend a lot of their workdays alone, or at least away from a supervisor. That means they need to be able to work efficiently without direct supervision. Painters who are self-employed must also be able to provide accurate estimates of a job’s timeline.

Why must you hire a professional Painter?

·         It saves time: There are quite a few things that must be done before you can start painting. The walls must be prepped, holes need to be filled up, etc. With a professional Painter by your side, these (and more) are all taken care of.

·         It ensures quality results: Professional Painters have much more experience with prepping and painting than us regular folk. Thus, they are more likely to use high-quality products that best suit your house’s walls. In addition, a Painter can help you choose colours and finishes that are better suited for your setting.

·         They are detail-oriented: Professionals, whether they are Painters, Kitchen Planners, Interior Designers or Landscape Architects, pay attention to the smallest of details that most of us wouldn’t even think about. And when it comes to painting a house’s walls or ceiling, you want the small details to be just as perfect as the larger ones.

·         They are efficient: Since Painters make a living out of painting, they can dedicate full days to the work at hand, which improves the results. This ensures a much more efficient painting job than you could manage while juggling your work, family, etc.

·         They are well-equipped: A proper paint job requires more than just paint and a brush. To paint an entire house, for example, you need safety gear, caulk, patching tools, various paints and finishes for different surfaces, spraying tools, etc. Professional Painters already have all of these at their disposal, saving you not only time and money, but also ensuring a great finishing touch to make your home look extra deluxe.
