3 tips about selecting a roller

Jun 24, 2016

Picking the right size, fiber type, and nap length paint roller for the job, I want to share 3 tips about choosing a right paint roller.

TIP 1: Use a 9-inch roller for general painting, a 14- or 18-inch roller for quickly coating large walls and ceilings, and a small foam roller on door panels and wainscoting.

TIP 2: Choose a roller's nap length based on the roughness of the surface: a ⅛- to ¼-inch nap for smooth surfaces, like plaster; a ⅜- to ½-inch nap for lightly textured drywall; and a ¾-inch nap for textured surfaces, like stucco or brick.

TIP 3: Use rollers with polyester and nylon fibers with latex paintst that is polyamide paint roller; natural fibers, like mohair and lamb's wool, with oil-based paints; and foam rollers on porous surfaces, like bare wood, or where you want a glossy-smooth finish, like on cabinets.
