|1||Yes! Not only Important as PPE as Paints Can be Toxic/Corrosive. It also Distinguishes him/her from all the Other Tradesman on site. Plus, if you Ask me Personally it looks more Professional|
|2||Yes, it’s important to wear whites. It gives the tradespersons a more professional look|
|3||I’m a believer that wearing whites shows professionalism|
|4||They are a uniform for decorators. It makes you look professional and reassures a customer that you’re not some jobsworth and you’re going to do a good job. The downside for me is there far too hot to wear in the summer.|
|5||Gives an identity to decorators. Looks professional.|
|6||I think it is important to wear whites as it is a sign of professionalism, however it’s fair to say that for some, they could become irritable. Therefore some decorators may not want to wear them.|
Against – They can get heavy and pull your shoulders.
|8||Absolutely, it’s the mark/uniform of a professional. Everyone recognises a painter when they wear whites. Without whites you look like an average DIYer that has had a go at painting their own house. Wearing whites can also get you work through recognition. I.e. a member of the public will recognise a painter and ask for a quote etc .|
|9||Yes, looks more professional|
|10||Looks far more professional than turning up in a pair of Adidas popper pants and your dads old jumper! People can identify you as a decorator rather than just a scruffy looking sod.|
|11||It is important. You have to look the part and be professional. Those that don’t just look like handymen|
|12||I think it is important to wear whites and clean whites at that. I think it makes you instantly recognisable on site and in the street. Every trade has their own colours to wear and should do so in my view.|
|13||YES! also its practical and useful.|
|14||It is definitely important as it makes a decorator look professional and you should change the whites often as you don’t want to look scruffy. Cleanliness is paramount.|
|15||Yes, I think so as it shows what profession you’re are working in.|
No arguments always have always will
|16||Yes. Gives a more professional appearance. Also don’t like decorators wearing their overalls to travel to site in!!|
|17||I feel it is important to wear whites as a decorator, this defines the difference between a DIYer and a professional. It is always about appearance when working in a domestic setting and clients do not like you coming in to a house in scruffy jog bottoms. Also, as we do a lot of outside work the white repels the sun meaning we don’t overheat this is important for our health.|
|18||100% not important to be white.|
100% needs to be comfy and look respectable.
|19||I think so, looks more professional|
|20||Yes. Makes you look and feel more professional. Customers and public then can see you are a decorator. Public image.|
|21||Yes, it’s what separates us from bob a job cowboys|
|22||I’m defiantly for. Whites are synonymous with decorating and you want to look smart as your look represents your company|
|23||I think so, I feel it gives the customer confidence in your ability|
Against: in the summer working inside I find them horrible to wear. thin cotton joggers are what I wear and have never had any one comment on why I’m not wearing whites. I think a company logo t-shirt or trade t-shirt is more important.
|26||Of course! Professionalism is important. Also, why wouldn’t you? Many pockets to use etc|
|27||Yes, would you trust somebody who turned up to decorate your house looking scruffy or in joggers?|
It’s the uniform of decorators! You don’t see a fireman turning up in jogging bottoms and a hoodie.
