As the title suggests, House Painters are responsible for painting the interior and exterior of houses. They remove old paint, smooth the surface using sandpaper, and apply paint, varnish, and stains to change the appearance of the house. Furthermore, they are responsible for analyzing the painting needs of a house, deciding paint color and types, mixing paints, and selecting appropriate painting tools.
To work as a house painter, one should possess in-depth knowledge of paint types and techniques, budgeting skills, physical dexterity, attention to detail, teamwork, and good communication abilities.
A high school diploma or equivalent is generally required to work as a house painter.
