Painters provide technical advice and recommendations on appropriate surface applications and preparations desired to obtain protective or decorative effects. They are responsible for stripping or preparing building, equipment and furniture surfaces for surface applications. Painters select, mix and apply paint, stains, varnishes, cements and plasters. They hang wallpaper, install tiling, plaster walls, letter and stencil signs, and clean-up work areas.

Painters assist in the design and implementation of a scheduled painting program, recommend repair work, coordinate repair schedules with other maintenance staff, and maintain appropriate records and logs.

They also prepare cost estimates and related reports, as well as requisition supplies, equipment and materials.
