A good building painter listens carefully to his client’s needs. He asks all the necessary questions to understand better what is desired, and then he answers precisely the client’s questions. He could also suggest products, methods, or related tasks to complete what is asked.

Perfectionist

A great painter is meticulous, he likes well-done work and straight edging lines. To do so, he chooses the best techniques for each project and won’t hesitate to ask questions to paint retailers so he makes sure he has the products which will give him optimal results.

A good construction painter is versatile, which means he has he necessary competencies for the roller, the paint brush, the spray gun, interior and exterior painting, surface preparation, replacing or repairing sidings, plastering and masonry.

Honest

A reliable painter also must be honest and able to tell the client when a project is not for him. Moreover, if he does not master the required techniques or doesn’t have the expertise or necessary tools for a particular project, the professional painter should be able to refer you to someone who can help you: mason, plasterer, carpenter or other.

He stays up to date with new products and technologies of his field. Obviously, a painter can’t know every paint product on the market, but he must be aware of new innovations and trends.
