Tips for people starting off in the painting and decorating industry

Whether you're looking to start up in the painting and decorating industry or you are just looking to grow your business further, we have compiled three important tips to help you. 

1. Improve your communication skills - To ensure your work meets customers expectations, it is important to communicate effectively with your customer. Good communication means listening to what the customer is after and respecting what the customer wants. 

2. Know your materials - There are more factors that differentiate paints than just the colour. They also vary by texture, drying time and viscosity. You also need to know the differences between primers, sealers, finished and varnishes. This can be the difference between a good job and a poor one.

3. Be as detailed-orientated as possible - What makes a great paint job is in the details. Crisp edges, even coats, and well-adhered layers are essential in producing a high quality paint job.

Hope these little tips go a long way!
