When a painter works in new construction, typically he or she is brought in as major construction is wrapping up or done. The painter assesses the various interior and exterior surfaces to be painted and consults with the contractor about recommended paint and primer types. Typically, the painter applies a thin layer of opaque white primer to help cover logos on drywall and assist with paint adherence. The painter then blocks off the areas to be painted with masking tape and applies finishing coats of paint using brushes, rollers and sprayers.
Painters can also be contracted or subcontracted for maintenance work. Often, this work is performed on public buildings and institutions. The painter may refresh surfaces where aged and weathering have damaged existing paint. In some situations, the painter covers vandalism and graffiti. In these situations, the painter may be required to carefully match the new paint to existing colors.
Painters work both indoors and outside as weather permits, and climactic conditions and their effect on newly applied paint plays a role in when painting work can be performed.

Most painters in construction and maintenance work during daylight hours during the workweek. (Copyright 2017 PayScale.com)
