If you see a line of paint near your home or business, it might be the result of a contractor’s work. But what else do you need to know about contractors and their work?

We’ll walk through the different kinds of line marking Melbourne  contractors and their roles in this article. If one is right for you, we’ll tell you how to find them and what to expect when hiring one as well as tips for dealing with them throughout your project.

Do you need a contractor?

If you are going to use a line marking contractor, you should be aware of the differences between contractors and employees.

A line marking contractor is a contractor who will work on your property but is not your employee. This means that they do not have to follow all of the rules that an employee would follow, such as paying tax or taking out worker’s compensation insurance.

If you only need their services once or twice, it may be cheaper for you if they don’t pay tax because then it won’t affect them as much if they make mistakes or charge higher prices than necessary due to increased costs associated with being an employer (like having workers’ comp). 

However, if this person does poor quality work and makes too many mistakes over time then there will be more money lost than what was saved by not paying tax.

What do you need to know?

An important consideration when ordering a line marking job is the type of paint you need to use. There are many different types of paint for every environment, which makes it difficult for you to choose the right one. 

Another thing that may affect how much time and money you spend on this project is whether or not the surface needs preparation before painting begins. If it does, then more time must be set aside so we can prepare it properly before painting can begin.

 The same goes if there’s an existing coating that needs to be removed by sanding or other means (we’ll let you know if this will be necessary). In general, though, most surfaces don’t require any preparation before they’re ready for application—so long as they’re clean and dry!

What’s the job really like?

The first thing to ask yourself is: What’s the job really like? Working as a line marker can be rewarding, but it has its challenges.

  • What is the typical day like? You will work outdoors under sometimes harsh weather conditions, so you’ll want to know what to expect in terms of safety and dress code.
  • Are there any difficulties involved in the work? Line marking can be difficult if you have asthma or allergies, so make sure you’re comfortable with the environment.
  • How do I feel about working in an open field or on a street corner? If this sounds good to you, then great! If not… maybe line marking isn’t for you after all.

The role of a labourer

A labourer is a person who performs physical work. Labourers are usually paid per hour, and the amount of work they do depends on the budgeted rate of pay. The role of a labourer is quite important in the construction industry, as they need to be physically fit and reliable. They also need to use various tools and equipment while carrying out their duties.

There are different types of labourers:

  • Heavy duty machinery operators – operate machinery such as forklifts, bulldozers and graders on construction sites
  • Construction carpenters/joiners/plumbers – join together materials such as wood or metal using nails or glue; build structures like homes using wood or concrete blocks


It’s important to know what you need and what you want before choosing a line marking Melbourne contractor. Once you have this information, it will be much easier to make an informed decision. Once the decision has been made it is important that both parties agree on their roles and responsibilities in order to work together efficiently and effectively.
