Which uses more paint, spraying or rolling? I have a pressure pot spray
gun set, but have been looking at power rollers. I'm re-modeling a
large house, and would like to make best use of materials. Any advise?
I have a sprayer and power roller and always end up rolling the old
fashioned way. Spraying is messy and power rolling is hard to cleanup the
whole setup. If you are doing the whole house in one shot use the power
roller otherwise do it the old fashioned way.
Most painters I know Spray and back roll on the exterior. On the interior
it depends on if the ceiling is a separate color. In my house they sprayed
al the ceilings white, then rolled the walls. The guy that painted my house
( also a friend ) has been painting over 25 years I have never seen him use
a power roller. I would think spraying would take a little more paint, but a
whole lot less time. I go for saving time because you know when you start
painting you whish you never started.
