Drawing and Painting Interview Questions & Answers

  1. Question 1. Which Method Is Considered The Best Between Brush & Rolling Or Spraying?

    Answer :

    This is a very general question and in certain situations one can be an advantage over the other. On siding, it is usually better to spray and then back roll. For stucco, using a roller leaves the surface uneven and can even triple the price as opposed to spraying. By sealing and penetrating the stucco by rolling, it can also change the texture and the sheen of the surface as well. Fascia boards are exposed to sunlight and rolling that surface can benefit the life of the paint by absorbing more into the wood. Spraying a vacant apartment unit can save time depending on how much masking is involved. Depending on the situation of the job, each one can be considered better.

  2. Question 2. What Is The Difference Between Paint And Stain?

    Answer :

    Paint forms a protective film that binds to the substrate, protecting it by preventing the surface from being damaged by abrasions or weathering. Stain, on the other hand, forms a very thin film on the substrate. It protects by penetrating the surface and thus preventing water or ultraviolet light from damaging the surface. A stain’s thin film can hold it’s color but cannot provide the uniformity of color that paint produces.

  4. Question 3. What Is The Best Method For Choosing A Reliable Painting Contractor?

    Answer :

    One of the best ways to select a painting contractor is to seek out recommendations from other managers or members that are involved with the same professional affiliations who specialize in the kind of work you need done. Afterwards, you should find out if that company is licensed, bonded, insured, with references available on hand. Find out what their payment schedule is like; this might be an important aspect when it comes time for decision.

  5. Question 4. What Kind Of Painting Maintenance Is Recommended?

    Answer :

    For exterior jobs, pressure washing will remove: dirt, dust, pollen, etc. This is will help keep your paint job looking new as the years go on. You can do this once a year. We suggest you regularly trim away trees/shrubs from your exterior walls. This is help keep too much moisture from building up on the paint. Make sure you focus on the sides of the house that get more sun everyday – in San Diego, this will be the East and West sides. You want to look for blistering or peeling of the paint. If you find any damage, get it repaired as soon as possible; the longer you wait, the more damage there will be.

    For interior jobs, any dirt or scuff marks should be washed away with a soft cloth, soap and water. We suggest you do not use abrasive cleaners or scrub new paint for at least two weeks. Even after this time. scrubbing and abrasive chemicals might remove the paint. Make sure you get a little touch up paint for your painter so you can also match the colors when you repaint.

  7. Question 5. How Long Will It Take For The Paint To Dry?

    Answer :

    This will vary from paint to paint and the weather conditions. It generally takes two weeks for paint to fully cure and before a newly painted surface can be scrubbed. Because San Diego weather is usually warm and dry, you should be able to move your furniture back against freshly painting walls within 24 hours. Humidity will affect the drying time so for projects close to the ocean, paint projects will take a little longer to dry.
