PeopleReady Painter - Rio Vista in Rio Vista, California
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.
