I'm getting ready to paint a 2100 sqft house inside and out. I
would like to buy a sprayer to do the house with as I have problems
with my hands that make using a brush difficult.
I know the little Wagner sprayer is junk but I am wondering if the
bigger unit is worth buying. I found this one at home depot for
$178.00 which seems like a bargain if it actually works.
Opinions? Better suggestions that wont break the bank?
I bought a Wagner a while back when I built my house...$500-600. Worked
fine, blew 20 gallons an hour IIRC.
Didn't use it on the outside, it was easier to roll/brush than to
mask/spray. I did use it inside as all the windows were still masked from
spraying drywall texture. Unless your house is empty - no
furniture/carpet/tile/cabinets/etc. - I think you'd do better rolling.

I bought a sprayer 10 years ago. It is an real pain in the ass inside. Mask
and seal everything. If you have some help on masking and removal it is not
so bad. What you save in time painting is used up in masking and removal.
costs are about the same as rolling.
Outside it shines, however masking and leaving the tape on over night is an
really bad idea. If you can mask and paint and remove all in a couple of
hours your ok.
Trick is once your done painting/spraying you need to get busy cleaning the
If you do not your buying pistons and parts because the paint clogged
If your doing large areas with no cutting in then the sprayer works well. I
like it on ceilings, I just remove everything from the room and then seal
the door with plastic and tape. Rollers really do have their place
especially for doors when you use the shiny stuff.
A eager helper makes it go pretty fast and good. The pros usually use 2 guys
to prep and remove to every painter.
