I need to do some painting this spring and at 70 it's getting tough to do
ceilings. I was looking at -first a power roller -and next the new goes on
violet and drys white? paint . ( would like matte finish as opposed to
flat. Any help with either ?
I did a lot of painting last year with a Wagner power roller. Although some
people dislike power rollers, I wouldn't consider using a regular hand
roller after my experience:
1) After doing one ceiling, I discovered that I didn't have to bother to
lay tarps/plastic sheets down - the power roller's guard prevented drips
and spray. End result of painting the ceilings and walls in the living
room, dining room, kitchen, and entry hallway ...no drips, none, nil, nada,
2) Painting is very fast with the roller. On the other hand, clean-up takes
longer than when using a hand roller.
3) When doing my cathedral ceilings, I had to use a system of ladders. With
the power roller, I just went from ladder to ladder and didn't have to mess
with moving a tray and risking spillage.
