Painters & Decorators
Painters and Decorators have been about for hundreds of years staining and decorating loads of different and important buildings. If you want them to do a job for you, they should be well trained or have good experience, preferably with college education or have a time served apprenticeship.
They train you in loads of different finishes at collage, such as, what the correct coatings are for all the different jobs. This is very important as it for reasons such as preservation, decoration, sanitation or for identification.
Get a well recommended painter and decorator in to do the job. If you do not know anyone then it would be wise to either find a good decorator through a painters association, such as dulux or the PDA The painting and decorating association. They only select decorators who have references, insurance and who are qualified.
Reasons for getting the decorators in to do the big jobs!
You need a well trained painter and decorator to do lots of important jobs on big industrial sites, such as painting certain pipes the right colours to show gas, water, acids, air and other liquids.
Different rubber coatings for health and safety.
Painting of large buildings with scaffolding.
For the painting of bridges such as the fourth bridge which takes many years and costs around £13M a year!
When it comes to house painting and decorating allot of people are very capable of decorating their own house's and can't afford to get a decorator in to do the job for them, I'm one of those.
Allot of people need to get a decorator in through lots of different reasons such as health and safety,high ceilings, staircases, disability or if you generally hate decorating like lots of people, and you can afford to have them in to decorate your property, then why not ?. Painters and decorators can usually put in new panes of glass and re-putty which allot of people cant do. Paperhanging is another job you have to be skilled at to get a nice finish. Especially if you've just bought expensive wall paper. Sometimes it can cost hundreds of pounds just for each roll.
Painters and decorators are usually very friendly, polite and respectful. And if you make them a cup of tea you might get them to do a couple of extra small decorating jobs for you whiles their there.
The reason why there are so many D.I.Y. stores over the country is that you can go out and buy materials to do some work on your own house without having to pay someone to do it for you. I cannot understand why most people have to employ a painter to paint their house for them (except for the elderly). This is one trade out of them all where you don’t need expertise just confidence. So keep your money in your pocket. A painter would not be allowed in my house because he could be jack-of-all-trades and master of none; you could probably do the job just as well.
