Painters & Decorators use a wide range of paints, varnishes, wallpapers and other coverings to protect and enhance indoor and outdoor surfaces. They can work on domestic houses, commercial properties, hospitals and schools, large structures like bridges and heritage sites. Hours of work vary, typically Monday to Friday with  overtime at weekends and possibly overnight when working on commercial jobs.
