There is no licensure or formal apprenticeship for Westchester painters—or painters anywhere else. An inexperienced person with little more investment than a ladder and some paintbrushes can lay claim to being a painter.
This means that the quality of personnel that might be sent to your home or business by a Westchester painting contractor can vary widely and—let’s be honest—not for the better.
After all, you’ll be giving total strangers access to your home or business, which means they will also have incidental contact with your family or customers, and eyeball your possessions or inventory. Some caution is called for.
At Yorktown Painting, we hire friendly, neat, courteous, experienced people who regard painting as their career and who take pride in learning and applying the painting standards and techniques prescribed by the PDCA, our professional organization.
And when we hire a trainee, we provide the necessary instruction and supervision to make sure that person becomes a long-term asset to our company—and to your experience with us.
To the best of our ability, we do not hire people who think about painting only as an “odd job” or temporary “gig” until they find something that better suits their tastes. Of course, we also perform background checks, collect references.
To attract and retain quality personnel such as these, we offer premium salary & benefits, measured to be within the top 10 percent for the region. And we pay our Westchester Painters hourly rather than “by the job,” so that there is no incentive to rush or cut corners.
As well, we provide ongoing training and education to make sure our Westchester Painters stay conversant with the latest painting techniques and standards, as well as the ever-evolving local, state, and federal painting codes for homes and businesses.
