What does a Painter do?

As a painter, you design, coat and clad interior walls, ceilings, floors and facades of buildings. You maintain objects made of different materials and give them a new surface by applying coloured coatings. You also carry out finishing and drying work to ensure heat, cold, sound and fire protection.

What is important?

  • Carefulness (e.g. when taping and filling cracks)
  • Observation accuracy (e.g. when recognising mould stains, rust flags or efflorescence)
  • Accuracy (e.g. when applying paint evenly)
  • Freedom from vertigo (e.g. when working on ladders and scaffolding)
