About Painting, Decorating and Plasterboard

Painting and decorating professionals finish rooms in residential and commercial buildings. They use a range of application techniques to apply paint, wallpaper and specialised materials to create perfect finishes and effects.

Plasterboard fixers and finishers (plasterers) work on the interiors of residential, commercial and industrial buildings. They fix plasterboard to interior framing to create walls and ceilings, then plaster the joins and prepare the surfaces for the application of paint or another type of decorative or functional covering.
