Painters aesthetically enhance buildings, private or private, by applying paint. However, they also interfere with the repair and maintenance of the walls. The work of painters is fundamental to preserve the integrity of the walls, which are worn out due to the action of natural agents and the passage of time.
In order to achieve good results, these professionals should be familiar with the building materials - plaster, wood, masonry, among others - and know the types of paints that are currently available on the market and have different characteristics and properties. significantly improve the comfort of the environments and those who use them.
We emphasise that, in addition to traditional painting, some painters, dedicated to more artistic works, apply decorative techniques on the walls. Customers who want a wall painted with stripes or any other pattern or design should look for a professional who has experience in this regard.
Painters can work on their own or join a construction company or even a paint shop that provides this type of service.
Hiring a painter can be much more useful to you than you might think. In what respects?
Choosing Color: Selecting colours is one of the most fun parts of painting a house. Clients should identify with colour schemes, but be open to the advice of painters on this issue. The idealised colours, for various reasons, may not work in the spaces intended to be painted.
A painter can help you choose colours that meet your personal taste, match the style of the house and emphasise the structural harmony of the house. What's more, you can take samples and apply them to surfaces to see how the various shades work when exposed to different levels of light, natural and artificial.
Advice on ink type: As mentioned above, there are paints with interesting and innovative features and properties. A customer who lives in a house by the sea can and should choose suitable paint. On the other hand, if the project concerns the room of a person with breathing problems, it may be appropriate to use an anti-mite paint. These are just examples. The range of choices is wide and a painter can guide you, taking into account your interests, needs and circumstances.
In calculating quantities: People often buy too little paint - and have to go back to the store - or buy too much paint - which results in a waste of money. Painters are used to calculating quantities, preventing this from happening.
In the preparation and eventual repair of the walls: it is unthinkable to apply paint on a wall that is dirty or in poor condition. If the damage is severe and profound, the painter may even have to work with other professionals to repair it. If the surface presents, for example, a moisture problem, it is also advisable to use the services of a plumber.
Painting: Applying paint is the obvious part, but you have more to say than you might think at first. After all, for a harmonious result, it is important to go into detail, which implies being aware of areas that are difficult to access or do not immediately look at (baseboards, surfaces around sockets and frames, friezes, and so on). against). A good painter will make a point of developing a perfectionist work and will have all the materials necessary to make it happen, including rollers and brushes of different sizes and shapes.
Paint can be purchased by the customer or the painter. Their supply will depend on what has been agreed between them and the painter's working method. A reputable specialist may not want to use paint purchased by customers if they consider that they may compromise the quality of the painting and therefore its credibility and professional ethics. In addition, painters may already be accustomed to working with certain brands and even being able to purchase products at more attractive prices.
In any case, the issue must be previously discussed and included in the contract.
The price to pay for a painter's service may vary, among other things, depending on the complexity of the work, the type of space, the prestige of the professional and the paints used.
