Choosing the right paint roller for the job can influence the finish.
Paint rollers can often complete a project much quicker than using a paint brush, especially on larger, open surfaces.
With such an extensive range of paint rollers available from your local Brewers branch, it’s important to discover the type of roller which is best suited for the project.
Here Brewers rolls out the facts to ensure you get the best finish with the right product:
On large, flat surfaces using a roller can save a lot of time compared to using a traditional brush. However the type of surface, in particular it’s texture, will determine the best type of paint roller to use.
For example, rougher surfaces need longer fibres to the roller - longer fibres allow the paint to penetrate into the ridges of the substrate such as textured walls or artexed ceilings. Whereas on smooth surfaces such as newly plastered walls, shorter fibres allow a more even coverage.
Your local Brewers branch will be happy to help advise on the best roller for the job.
The type of paint being used is an important factor to consider
before choosing a roller. For example woven rollers are perfect for many solvent-based
paints, whereas microfibre rollers are ideally suited for water-based paint
