What House Painters Do

Painters may carry out the following tasks:

  • Colour consulting: Choosing the colours to use in your home can be one of the most difficult choices to make. A painter can help you choose the best colours for your interior or exterior space. They will typically ask questions about your colour preferences and the mood you are trying to achieve, to narrow down the colour palette. An interior designer can also help with colour consulting
  • Interiors: Using paint is a great way to revamp the interior of your home. A professional painter will prepare the surface for painting, protect the floors and furniture and apply the paint using the best tools for the job. You can choose to use one colour throughout your home, or combine a few hues for various effects.
  • Exteriors: Like the interior, painting the exterior of your home can give your abode a boost. Not only that, but painting the outside of your home helps protect it against the elements. Your painter will remove existing paint, prepare and prime the exterior surface and apply the paint with your preferences in mind.
  • Fences: Painting your fence is a great way to protect it and enhance its look and finish.Your painter will most likely use a spray gun, as this allows them to paint large areas quickly and use less paint than other methods. Timber fencing is the most commonly painted material, though concrete and render are also suitable.
  • Roofs: Roof painting ensures your roof is protected and complements the style of your home. The roof must first be pressure cleaned to remove dirt and grime. It is then repaired, if needed, before a sealer is applied. The painter will then most likely use an airless spray painting gun to apply the paint.
  • Exterior timber maintenance: From time to time, the timber around your home will need to be maintained so that it stays looking its best. A painter can assist by cleaning the timber and applying new stains, oils, varnishes and paints to the time.
  • Special finishes: If you don’t want to stick to standard gloss or matt finishes, why not choose special paint finishes to make a bold statement. Special paint finishes include suede, metallic, pearl, satin and marbling.
  • Spray painting: This is the quickest and most effective way to paint a large exterior area. It is best used on outside surfaces as the spray can drift when it is applied. While you can do a DIY spray painting job, hiring a professional will ensure a sleek finish.
  • Commercial painting: Just like residential properties, commercial buildings also need to be painted from time to time. Whether it’s a shop, school, hospital or office block, we will create a look to suit your needs and aim to get the work done with minimal disruption to the business.
