    I'm about to paint my bedroom ceiling and boyyyy would I love to have those guys to do it for me 🤣

  7. Eddie Rodriguez says:

    First rookie move I've seen this guy do, is lay his wet roll on the walls thats a "never do" thing. 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

  27. iker perz says:

    Forget about straight lines in walls after rolling the perimeter like that . 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. 😁


    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 ..

    Do you prime with a gracco also? Do you prime before every job?

    So when you cut in the spot lights you have to circle them
    Which always leave a brush shadow
    There is a new paint in the UK called antiflex you can paint it any direction with a 2inch roller if you want it won't shadow now what

  33. Manlius Renovations says:

    Could you please post the link to that 9" roller cover with the nap covering the edge? Thanks

  37. Jonathan Bolding says:

    As a painter I like the 18 as well. Great coverage and speed. I also like to tape the can light pigtails into the can and remove the HVAC registers. Sure speeds up the process. Great work guys.

  43. Dawn Bryant says:

    You talk too fast!

  44. Regina Bowe says:

    When you use the small roller to cut in do you worry about any excess paint that is left on the wall? Won’t that effect the wall paint? Hope that makes sense!

  45. Kevin says:

    With so little to mask off, why not spray the ceiling? I see a dark color up there, rolling may take two coats

    Where can I purchase the 9" Roller Nap that you use for the corners?

  58. modsquad01 says:

    You wouldn’t last long in Australia cutting in the edges with a roller occasionally you’ll get away with it but I wouldn’t be promoting it on a video that’s not how a painter is taught how to paint ceilings we call it a roller tray seems to make sense here in Australia what did you call a can? Lol can is what you get your baked beans in

  67. Beck Ganiyev says:

    I think 1st method is not good because paint is gonna build up at the edges of the ceiling and it’ll be hard to get sharp cut. I used to do that and moved back to use brush the corners.

  80. William Mentalcase Masterson says:

    Blue shirt guy will have back problems, rolling like that. 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.

  81. Shaun Carr says:

    Roll outside dceiling first Wat a load bollocks

  82. Dharos says:

    Amateurs …..

  83. Arational says:

    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.

  84. david walin says:

    Je trouve que en France en est plus technique plus pro , déjà le rouleau qu'il utilise c'est pour pein le sol … Je trouve que c'est nul

    I‘m a Painter in germany 🙂 its funny to see other painters in other countries, in germany in this job u wont get much money… cause there are less people want to do that

  87. Get It Goat says:

    So John Cena does painting tutorials. Didn't know.

  88. Learndaanswers says:

    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

  90. Jason Castro says:

    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

  91. Chuck Kocinski says:

    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.

  92. Burt Bowers says:

    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..

  93. Firearms 101 says:

    Lol it don't matter what direction you roll flat paint in its flat. Lol light direction? Smoke another one guy's.

  96. Zachary Kingston says:

    Should take all lights and fixtures down..n if u don't cut first..also it's dripping down wall…ise lambswool 9 inch or 18 if ya really need to…overall good explanation otherwise..also should pole sand first n use ur hips like ur swinging a sythe to cut grass ..if that makes sense
