Painters apply all types of paints, varnishes, lacquers, sealants, and stains on a great variety of surfaces and materials. They prepare those surfaces and materials to receive the finishes they apply. They also apply wallpaper, vinyl wall fabrics, and all types of coverings or coatings.

Work is done indoors and out, in and on all types of buildings. Drywall Finishers apply tape, topping, and texturing to drywall. Both painters and Tapers climb ladders and scaffolds and may have to work at heights. They may work also in dusty or cold conditions.
