Across Caterham, countless business owners and homeowners are reaping the benefits of UPVC spraying by professionals like Revamp Spray. The results are undeniably excellent, making the property look amazing and all for the fraction of the cost of replacing external cladding, shop fronts, doors and windows, conservatories and kitchen cabinets.
However, getting a perfect finish takes skill and dedication; our team of spray painters are highly trained specialists who take great pride in every job.
If you are considering a change of career or have a keen interest in becoming proficient in spray painting, why not enrol in a training course?
As experienced professionals, we can teach you all aspects of spray painting, allowing you to establish your own business in Caterham or join an established, reputable company like Revamp Spray.
Our spray painting courses will teach you the full process, leaving you equipped with the knowledge, skills and experience to spray paint at a professional level.
Here's what to expect:
Learning how to handle all equipment safely and efficiently is key to becoming a skilled spray painter. You'll also need to learn how to use different types of equipment proficiently, including how to strip, clean and service a spray gun.
This is professional-grade equipment and is more complex and technical than most of the machines available to the public. As well as learning how to use this correctly, you'll be shown how to mix the paints to get the right colour.
The mixing process is vital to the success of a project; the colour and consistency have to be just right. Many customers choose bespoke colours, and business owners rely on a specific colour for their brand awareness.
Cleaning and maintenance of the spray equipment are also very important, and this will be included in the training.
Every tradesperson and contractor knows (or learns very quickly!) that preparation is the most important step in any project. If you don't prepare the surfaces adequately, the paint job is likely to fail or the results will be far from perfect.
During your spray painting training course, you'll learn how to mix cleaning products for degreasing the surfaces. Some cleaning agents are covered by the COSHH rules (Control Of Substances Hazardous to Health) so you'll be made aware of the safe handling of these liquids.
Masking and papering the spray painting area properly is also essential to providing a perfect finish, so you'll be taught how to use professional-grade materials to mask any areas that need to be protected from overspray.
At Revamp Spray, we take pride in our reputation for leaving the site clean and tidy on completion of a job. Any spray paint training course should include a section on ensuring that all tools, equipment and debris are cleaned away before leaving the site.
If you want to get on in the decorating industry, you must be proficient in various painting methods. Training includes the use of airless spraying, air-assisted airless spraying, air spraying and HVLP spraying techniques.
You'll learn the advantages and any drawbacks of each method, and discover ways to minimise overspray and waste.
The appeal of any paint spraying technique lies in speed, accuracy and a perfect finish. This fact lies at the heart of our spraying course.
You'll be able to test out these methods in a special booth at the training centre to gain practical experience.
As a UPVC spraying specialist, you'll be presented with a whole range of different scenarios. If you aren't familiar with these and unable to provide a competent service, you are unlikely to be successful.
That's why Revamp Spray ensures that paint spraying courses include training for all eventualities.
Here are some of the areas that will be covered:
External domestic projects generally involve spraying UPVC windows, doors, garage doors, conservatories, soffits, fascias, bargeboards, guttering and downpipes.
While not all projects involve such extensive work, you must be prepared for the eventuality. Each one offers a different set of challenges that you must be prepared to overcome.
These have become extremely popular as a way of home improvement without the cost of a refit. You'll be taught how to dismantle the removable parts, mask the rest and provide a flawless finish before reinstalling the doors and drawer fronts.
Some kitchens have wine racks, shelves, tray spaces etc. that can't be moved. You'll be shown how to paint these expertly in situ.
Another brilliant money-saving method, this is where old furniture is restored with a coat of spray paint. However, this only works if it's done correctly. Our paint spraying courses show you how to prepare the surface and get a flawless factory finish each time, making the furniture look brand new.
Whether it's a factory that needs revitalising or a shop front that's seen better days, as a professional UPVC spraying specialist, you'll be expected to tackle any project with confidence.
Business premises project an image, creating brand awareness and perception; a run-down building presents a negative picture and could lead to a loss of custom.
It's your duty to achieve the best possible finish, so you need the very best training!
Revamp Spray values its staff and takes health and safety issues seriously, which is why our spraying course includes a section on working safely.
Aside from handling paint and chemicals for cleaning, you may have to work at height. Therefore, it is essential that you are aware of all potential hazards and always ensure you have a stable working platform.
Any Revamp Spray staff who use scaffolding, ladders or mobile elevating work platforms (MEWP) are trained and hold the relevant certificates to do so.
Whether working at a residential home, an office block or a shop on the high street, there may be members of the public or staff in the area. It's vital that you are aware of any hazards and that you set up barriers to protect people from wandering into the spraying zone.
Your spraying course will teach you all about these issues to reduce the possibility of accidents when you begin your career in spray painting.
Generally speaking, the training centre provides a mask, overalls, gloves and safety glasses. You will need to ensure that you have suitable footwear. Upon signing up for a paint spraying course, you'll be given clear instructions as to what is required.
Other than this, you should bring a positive attitude and enthusiasm to learn from the best.
The spraying course includes practical as well as theory sessions, and the more you put into it the more you'll achieve.
If this sounds like something you'd be interested in, we'd love to hear from you.
