Why do painters wear white?
In England, in the 18th Century painters started wearing white clothing because the most popular paint colour used was white. More specifically – Whitewash. Whitewash was a common substance used mostly on the exterior of a building. The liquid was a cheap substitute for real paint. It would rub off onto your clothing if you leaned against even after it was quite dry.
Now think about the fact that whitewash was used outside. This meant that painters had to work long hours in the heat and sun, and the best colour to repel the sun is white, it made sense to wear white.
And finally, when you got plaster or whitewash on your clothes, the painter would still look clean.
Union painters provided the next good reason to maintain the white and turned the regular white clothing into a uniform they were proud to wear. The union painters wanted to differentiate themselves from the non-union painters, who would wear white shirts and dark pants, so union painters started wearing white pants, white shirt and a bowtie. Yes, a bowtie. Making them look more professional than the non-union painters.
Today, painters that wear white do so for many reasons.
I wear white because it shows customers and potential customers that I am a Professional Painter.
In case you want to get technical, white is not actually a colour! Pure white is the absence of colour. In other words, you can’t mix colours to create white. Therefore, white is the absence of colour in the strictest sense of the definition.
What type of paint do you use?
Benjamin Moore. Most often we use Regal Ulti-Matte by Benjamin Moore on the walls. In kitchens and bathrooms we like to use Aura Bath & Spa by Benjamin Moore because of its superior durability in rooms with moisture.
What should I do to prepare for painting?
The following are things you can do to prepare for painting:
- Remove any curtains and curtain rods from the walls we will be painting
- Circle lightly with a pencil all the holes that do not need to be filled prior to painting because you will be using them again after painting.
- Remove any light switch and receptacle covers from the walls we will be painting and set them aside. We suggest that you put them in a plastic bag with a zipper so you don’t lose any small screws
- If you’re able to move the furniture, please move it to the centre of the room and away from the walls to be painted.
what kind of safety precautions do you use?
Wagg‘s Painting is fully insured. If one of our painters gets injured on your property or damages something – it’s our insurance that will take care of it and not yours.
