Painters in Boksburg

Boksburg, a city on the East Rand of Gauteng Province, became known due to the discovery of gold in 1887. After Johannesburg, it is the second-oldest town on South Africa’s Witswaterand. Boksburg, an industrial town, shares many similarities with the surrounding towns of the East Rand, such as Germiston and Benoni who were also established to serve the local gold mines and provide accommodation for the workers.

The city of Boksburg sports a well-developed transportation system: it is quite close to the OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg, and is served by the Metrorail line as well as three national routes and three regional routes.

For April 2019, the average asking price for a three-bedroom property in Boksburg was listed at R1 423 823, of which 2 168 were available on property24. This was followed by 1 380 two-bedroom properties (valued at R709 909).

What does a professional Painter do?

A professional Painter prepares and paints interior- and exterior surface and may work for construction companies, contractors, or building management companies. Depending on their employer or project they may paint residential houses, industrial business structures, or a range of other structures such as bridges. It is also not uncommon for a Painter to work alongside other professionals on a project or jobsite, such as an Interior Designer.

Regardless of the structure that requires painting, the Painter will always start by preparing the surfaces first. This might require removing old paint, filling holes, washing walls, etc. A variety of tools are used to correctly prepare a surface, including sandpaper, wire brushes, scrapers, and more. It is also the responsibility of the Painter to ensure that all surfaces are not susceptible to moisture by sealing cracks and corners where building materials meet.

Once the surface is clean and ready for paint, primer is applied, which depends on the location and type of surface being prepared. It is vital that the Painter applies primer and paints at the appropriate spread rate and temperature in order to ensure first-rate results.

Any professional Painter needs to have a keen knowledge of colour theory. The choice of colours for a painting project is ultimately up to the client, yet a professional Painter needs to be able to advise the customer and understand how to create the required appearance of the painted surface. For this, varnish, oil or paint additives to derive specific colours and textures may be used. Painters also rely on special techniques to provide decorative touches and faux finishes, which usually require the use of washes, glazes, layering, sponging, distressing, stippling, and colour blocking.

Another important factor of a professional Painter’s job is site preparation and cleanup. Scaffolding is built and drop cloths or tape may also be used to prevent paint spills and dust.

How to hire a professional Painter for your painting project

Since you probably won’t be around for the entire duration of the Painter’s work, it is important to hire a professional that you trust. So, let’s start with the basics:

1.    The check-up: Before hiring anyone, check their certificate of insurance to guarantee that they have general liability insurance and that their workers’ compensation insurance is in effect (if they have other employees). It’s also best to check past work in person instead of looking at photographs. But because the real test of a paint job is measured by how well it stands up over time, inspect a painting job that was done at least three years ago. Look for the following:

·         Consistent wear over the entire surface

·         Peeling or flaking paint

·         Cracked glazing compound around windows

·         Signs of overspray and splattered / spilled paint (especially on the roof, driveway, and sidewalk). If it’s a house that the Painter painted, ask the homeowner if they’ve picked up any problems with how the paint is weathering, if their landscaping has suffered any ill effects while the Painter was working, if the professional stuck to the budget, and if they would hire them again.

2.    The contract: A contract is your opportunity to commit the Painter to follow specific prep and application methods, use quality materials, do their job (which includes cleaning up) properly, and set a payment schedule.

3.    Prep work: Don’t be content with vague contract language like “properly prepare all surfaces”. For example, if you have wood siding, let the contract explicitly state that the Painter will power-wash the house with a bleach or TSP mixture. Let your contract also stipulates that all gaps be filled with caulk and that all siding be primed with a penetrating, slow-drying primer.

4.    Application methods: Whether the job calls for spraying or brushing, ensure that the Painter makes use of the correct methods and, more importantly, that they are experienced. Let your contract also state the minimum drying times to ensure the Painter doesn’t speed through a job and doesn’t leave enough time for the first coat to dry before applying a second one.

5.    Material quality: Write into your contract the paint you want by putting in the manufacturer’s name along with the grade, colour, gloss and base. Although Painters may recommend a specific paint, a lot of them only do so because they’re getting a good price on it. Do your own research to know what’s best for your project.

6.    Site protection and cleanup: Make sure your contract stipulates that the Painter will use drop cloths, masking tape, and anything else to protect flooring surfaces, exterior shrubs, etc. Also require that the Painter return the site to pre-job conditions, especially with gardens / landscaping.

7.    Payment: Your Painter must never be paid more than 10% of the total job cost when signing the contract. Thereafter, you may disperse one-third of the remainder on the first day of work, another third at the midpoint, and the final third after the project is complete and the Painter has properly cleaned the job site.

8.    Do inspection: Before the project starts, take a walk with the Painter around your house (or whatever the job site is) and make notes of all cracked glass panes, previous paint spills, etc. This is important so that there won’t be any arguments about old and new problems at the end of the painting project.
