A house painter is a tradesman responsible for the painting and decorating of buildings. The purpose of painting is to improve the aesthetic of a building and to protect it from damage by water, rust, corrosion, insects and mould. the painter is primarily responsible for preparation of the surface to be painted, such as patching holes in drywall, using masking tape and other protection on surfaces not to be painted, applying the paint and then cleaning up. Larger firms operating within the trade were generally capable of performing many painting or decoration services, from sign writing, to the gilding of objects or the finishing or refinishing of furniture.
