Do you have a creative way that you like to express yourself?
Perhaps you'd be interested in painting this town red? PeopleReady
is now hiring Painters who can bring a positive attitude and
professional flair to the jobsite.
Professional painters begin by preparing surfaces for painting.
This may require removing old paint, filling holes, and washing
walls. Sandpaper, wire brushes, scrapers, and abrasive blasting may
be used to prepare surfaces. The Painter fills holes and divots
with putty, plaster, or caulk, and then ensures that surfaces are
not susceptible to moisture by sealing cracks and corners where
building materials meet.
After a surface is clean and ready for paint, professional painters
apply primer and paint at the appropriate spread rate and
temperature in order to ensure the best results. Primer selection
is based on the location and type of surface being finished.
Our Painters also show a keen knowledge of color theory. While
color selection is ultimately up to the customer, painters advise
clients and craft the appearance their customers seek. They may use
varnish, oil, or paint additives to derive specific colors and
textures. Some special techniques provide decorative and faux
finishes. These finishes often require the use of washes, glazes,
and layering. Professional Painters may also use techniques such as
sponging, distressing, stippling, and color blocking to build
effects for their clients.
Painters also handle jobsite preparation and cleanup. They may
build scaffolding and use dropcloths or tape in order to clean
paint spills, dust from sanding, and other materials, and remove
them from a completed jobsite. Although some painters do all types
of painting, many specialize in one type, such as new construction,
signs, exterior or interior work, or remodeling. Regardless of the
type, we would love to talk more about this full-time
