I'm planning on painting the vaulted ceiling (rises to about 14') in the
"great room". Would like some comments on rollers that can be used while
standing on the floor. I believe there is a roller available that is fed
paint through the shaft so you don't have to keep dipping the roller in a
paint tray. Are these any good? Are there more than one brand/type to
choose from? Which would you recommend keeping in mind that price is a
factor since I might never use it again so don't need a professional grade
I have also seen a paint advertised at Home Depot that goes on with a
colored tint and dries white to make it easier to tell where you have
already painted. Does this stuff work as advertised? I thought that since
the surface will be 8' above my head, it may be easier to assure that I am
getting complete coverage of white over white.
Rent scaffolding use an extension ladder or hire a pro, how do you plan
on cuttin it in at 14 ft, If you have to ask about special paint and
poles you may end up redoing it . Those paints and poles are gimmicks.

Totally agree with that approach. Get the scaffolding with the locking wheels
and you'll save hours labor and get a decent job to boot. Don't forget to get a
good sized ground cloth, A basic rule of old time painters is " the higher the
job, the wider the spatters". Good luck.
I have a fairly large living room (52 x 20) with a vaulted ceiling that
runs from 10 to 20 feet high. I have scaffolding and the appropriate
ladders and was planning to paint it myself but on a lark I got a quote
from the fellow that does my exterior painting and he only wanted $250
for two coats of Benjamin Moore. Needless to say he got the job and it
