In our 1st blog we will be talking about application and the best rollers to use for interior painting of your home.
5 Roller Covers you can Count On.
These 5 roller covers are the best in my experience for appearance, application and coverage.
The type of roller cover you use can make a world of difference on the application process and final appearance of your painting project. Here are 5 roller covers I recommend, along with where to use them and the key benefits they provide.
1. Purdy Marathon- 1/2 inch nap
Great overall hide. Consistent uniform finish. Great pick up and release for increased productivity. Great for big projects as it is very durable and long lasting. Controls spatter to a minimum. Use on smooth or texture walls.
2. Sherwin Williams Contractor series Polyester 3/4 inch nap
Best overall hide. Consistent uniform finish. Good pick-up and release for productivity. Better for smaller projects as it doesn’t last as long as a blend of nylon and polyester fabric. Limited spatter control. Use on smooth or texture walls.
3. Purdy Colossus
Great results over texture substrates. Good overall hide. Uniform finish. Best pick-up and release for productivity. Great for big projects as it is very durable and long lasting. Controls spatter to a minimum. Can also be used on smooth walls.
4 and 5. Purdy White Dove and Sherwin Williams Contractor Series Soft Woven-1/2 inch nap
Good overall hide. Smooth and uniform finish. Good pick-up and release for productivity. Controls spatter to a minimum. Use on smooth walls.
All of these Roller Covers can be used with Oil and Acrylic Latex paints and primer.
I’ve have used many roller covers in my time as a painter. These 5 are the best for each application they are designed for. I hope you have gained some valuable insight and this information provided to you helps in your painting projects. I do advise that before you start painting with new roller covers that you 1st wash them with warm water to get the loose hairs fibers off the roller. If you don’t do this you will have hair fibers on your walls which can and often are visible once the finish coat dries.
