House Painting Fun Facts #1

November 17, 2016

Today I wanted to share a fun fact about house painting with you all.  I will keep them coming

 as I get time to write them up:


Why do painters always wear white?

I get asked this question all the time.  Its surprising how many answers there actually are to this question. The most common answer being, we use white and off white colours of paint most often.  Back in the day they only had one colour: Whitewash!  Today we have every colour of the rainbow but prefer those off whites for ceilings, trim, and doors.  So this is typically going to make us appear cleaner then if we were in say black.  Those with black cars definitely know!  Our mud and caulking are white as well and I know that stuff is a magnet for your pants:(

A few other reasons are:



-Back in the day white cloth was cheaper because it was absent of dye, and knowbody likes to get paint on their expensive clothes!

-Whites can be bleached

-Union workers wore white to set themselves apart and represent professionalism.

-You want to be wearing white if you're working outside in the hot sun. 

- And of coure the good guys always wear white
