How We Choose Our Painters

At University Painters, we pride ourselves on hiring only highly skilled and qualified professional painters to work on your project. While paint may not seem like something that needs too much thought, a great (or terrible) paint job can either make or break the overall look of a home, building, or office space. Hiring an experienced contractor is vital to achieving a professional result.

As our client, you may wonder how we choose our painters, and what kind of training they must undergo before we assign them to a job site. When evaluating potential painters to hire, we thoroughly research their prior experience and talk extensively with their references. Getting the details right is important to our business, so we make it a point to bring only the most detail-oriented workers onto our team.

Painters must be familiar will all the required tools, including a range of brushes, rollers, scrapers, and sanders. They must also be skilled in the use of various texturing tools and know which ones to use to achieve the desired effects. Different tools are required depending on whether the work is done on the interior or exterior of a building while other tools are used for special techniques, styles, or textures.

Knowing which kind of paint to use on a particular project is important for a successful outcome. Paints vary not only by their color, but also by their thickness, texture, sheen, drying time, and a host of other considerations. Painters who choose the wrong products for the job could end up with peeling, cracking paint, or simply a paint job that just doesn’t look as good as it should have.

While it’s not the first thing that comes to mind, a painter needs a great deal of manual dexterity in order to achieve a smooth, crisp finish. They must also have the strength and physical ability to move equipment efficiently and safely, as well as a good sense of balance to avoid falling off ladders and roofs.

Our teams at University Painters possess all these skills and abilities, and put them to work for you. For more information on our complete range of services, please visit our website at
