Unless you burn the edges. cringe must have been one of the newbies. Second rookie mistake is stop your rolling to give a camera interview or any distraction, once you've started you have to continue consistenly wet-dry Reply baldy6789 says: July 13, 2019 at 4:59 am Hi can you please tell me where I can get the rollers for cutting in on the ceiling Reply Bill Kuhl says: July 13, 2019 at 6:35 am People always talk about painting fast.

The guy with big roller will have neck problems, that big roller is for big open ceilings following the spray men making roll texture and one coat covering using backrolling technique. 😁 Reply UNSTOPPABLE KING says: August 11, 2019 at 12:10 pm When using flat ceiling paint with a 18" nap it doesn't matter which direction you rolled from it Will still look amazing when dry… 18" nap eliminates imperfections and plus you will get the job done faster and easier…I have been painting for over 9 years ..

You probably know, but roll side to side, never over your head, leave a bit of pressure against roller toward the direction youre moving. I do half the room, then feather my other side into it. I can roll a typical bedroom in ten minutes. After cutting. I've never used that 9" naptip, but I do sometimes cut with a roller after cutting the corner with a brush. I use CHB, it's flat & doesn't flash. The pressure thing, will keep lines from forming. Reply Shaun Carr says: October 30, 2019 at 2:08 pm Roll outside dceiling first Wat a load bollocks Reply Dharos says: October 31, 2019 at 11:18 pm Amateurs ….. Reply Arational says: November 1, 2019 at 3:08 pm Wow.That's a lot of bad advice.That "edge roller" left drips all over the walls that will have to be sanded out if they are allowed to dry.That will cost more time than cutting in by brush.Never paint vents in flat finish They will look dirty within a year.

Didn't know. Reply Learndaanswers says: November 6, 2019 at 6:43 am Ok, so I've been a painter for some time and I always cut in the walls to ceiling first. 2nd I'll cut around all light vents and ceiling fans. 3rd I'll feather with a 9" roller appx. 9" from each ceiling fixture. Finishing up with the right direction to trick the eye to follow the light flow of the room. 4th using a 9" with a 1/2" nap load with flat latex is a challenge in it self. Never let the roller become to dry and keep moving with a feathered overlap. Rolling is always fast but adding the weight of a 18" roller with hardware and the pole becomes a bit challenging for a beginner looking to be a speed paint, because to this day with the strength I have and the skill I have my suggestion to beginners is to always paint with patients Reply Chino Cruz says: November 6, 2019 at 3:34 pm 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 Reply Jason Castro says: November 9, 2019 at 1:15 am So do you guys always use a 3/8s inch roller regardless of texture on the walls and ceilings? Been using the colossus 3/4 knap roller covers but wondering if the smaller knap covers work better. Tia Reply Chuck Kocinski says: November 10, 2019 at 3:40 pm sorry ,,I have to disagree on the 9 inch roller around the perimiter of the ceilings ,without feathering out the drips and heavy areas on the walls that it creates . What we do is go around quickly before the drips dry and feather them out with a mini roller. other wise if a satin or semi gloss paint gets used ,you can see the imperfections . Actually using that hand held sprayer to cut the ceiling in is the most effective way to do it. Reply Burt Bowers says: November 10, 2019 at 10:51 pm I don"t understand why the couple air vents on the ceiling was not removed? the resessed lights obviously was, it would been much easier to roll the roller over the whole ceiling without having air vents in the way as the painter was trying to be careful stopping painting a square around each air vent are you kidding me?… it would had only taken minute to remove each one of these vents & a clear pass with the roller over the vent hole & to think without doing it leaving the vents up you had to brush around each vent taking even more time when again vents could been removed to avoid all the hassle & bet that the vents got paint on them & seeing brush strokes around the vent framing.. as a pro painter myself you had gone about this completely wrong & recommend that you correct your approach of how to prep before painting ceilings by removing everything from the ceilings for a pristine professional look which is expected by the customer.. Reply Firearms 101 says: November 13, 2019 at 6:20 pm Lol it don't matter what direction you roll flat paint in its flat. Lol light direction? Smoke another one guy's.
