Painters take care of painting the internal and external surfaces of a structure giving it that aspect of final appeal that will determine the style of a house or any structure or room.
Among the tasks of the painters, is also that of preparing walls which have cracks or damage to them, getting them ready to paint thanks to sanding activities and sometimes filling materials such as putty or primer.
Painters also have the task of removing any remaining wallpaper or scraping off the residue of a previous painting, to prepare the right base on which to apply the chosen paint or the desired wallpaper.
The work of the painter is not at all simple, it requires specific manual and skilled activities. Their days are divided between scaffolding at amazing heights or even crouched on the ground to finish off the most remote corners of an apartment.
A painter must necessarily have physical flexibility capable of coping with extreme movements and conditions. Safety must obviously be the basis of his attentions, necessary to carry out the work in protected and non-risky conditions.
Furthermore, strong interpersonal and consultative skills are also needed, as a good painter follows the client from the beginning to the end of the project with useful suggestions and sharing his work step-by-step. In fact, choosing the color of the walls of your home is by no means a minor task considering that colour will remain for some time
The painter who uses cheap paint and then trims you super cheap prices is not the right painter to hire.
Why? Because it means that the tools chosen are not of quality and soon the walls of the house begin to mould or cracks will form or perhaps even pieces of plaster come off.
The result? Having to redo the work all over again, spending double the money and with the further task of having to empty the premises again to allow a new painting.
The professional painter tends to work on construction sites and is not an impromptu who decides to paint his home in his spare time, to supplement his salary.
Just check the portfolio of projects to recognise the seriousness of a job done with the right materials, the right professionalism and attention to detail. The whitening experts recognise themselves by these and other factors, such as punctuality and also how the budget is detailed. In fact, it must contain every detail of the activities to be carried out with the relative price.
Beware then of the painter who offers you a cheap price, for example, £4/5 per square meter, which means that the paint you use is not of good quality and that you will paint the wall without even creating a homogeneous and smooth base, but directly on the wall as it appears.
We begin to consider a reasonable price and in line with the quality of the paint and the work to be done, those that start from higher figures. The cost is inevitably conditioned by the city. It seems that in London the costs are higher than in other parts of the UK, while areas like Wigan, Leeds and Wirral are the cheapest.
