When it comes to painting or a painting job although it is a job people would rather take up by themselves whereas the other would rather have it taken up by professionals. But most people don’t understand exactly what goes into a painting job. Here is a basic understanding of what exactly a house decorator duties and responsibilities are when it comes down to their job.

Finalizing an estimate

Most painters before starting or confirming a job, go to the area they need to work on and examine is and the chief task being starting on the job itself. Initially required to give in a rough estimate or quotation based on the tasks required by the employers to be done. This estimate will involve whether not insurance is provided by the company, the materials and paints required and whether the materials need to be purchased by them or the employers as the well as the rough time estimate taken to complete the job based on the amount of painting or redecorating required.Usually, the employer or homeowner will gather around three to four quotations before finalizing on the selected painter and decorator. This will finally give the “go ahead” to the selected painting company. 

Purchasing of the Supplies required

After the company is finalized, as mentioned before the supplies that need to be used for the job can either be purchased by the Duties of house painters Camberwell themselves or the homeowner/business. The given brand, right colour and required amount of paint need to be bought. These also will depend on the homeowners/ business requests or needs. Depending on the colour they prefer, the area they need to be painted as well as exactly where the paint is to be applied. For example, if it is painting the exterior of the house, the painter will require specially mixed waterproof paint as this paint will be exposed to all sorts of weather conditions depending on the area you live in.

Most paints that are not specially mixed for the exterior of the house may not be able to last even longer than a month due to the weather conditions presented. Other painting supplies such as paint primer and brushes, rollers and sprays also need to be purchased. For the right interior painters will require a certain type of paint such as Latex or oil along with masking tapes to ensure this is will be a neatly completed job.

Required process of the job

Once the painter has got all the needed materials to hand he will proceed to complete his job, which may require stripping down of old wallpaper and repainting over old paint. He will sand down the necessary areas of the paint to ensure a smooth and completed job.
