Painting and Decorating

The UK construction industry employs more than 2.2 million people. Painters and Decorators are a major contribution to this figure. As a Painter and Decorator you have the responsibility for the painting and decorating of buildings to make them look better or to protect them from damage by water, rust, corrosion and mould.

This work could also include new buildings, the maintenance, refurbishment or renovation work of old buildings and can fall into public funded projects or private work. Painting and Decorating make a huge contribution to the Construction industry all around the UK. The number of houses being built is set to rise by 20.2% by 2018 so the demand for Construction Industry Tradesmen is currently very high so you can look forward to a long and rewarding career in this industry.
