# Let’s begin with quality. To witness a high-quality paint job, you should never opt for paint brushes or rollers available at dirt cheap prices. These choices substantially compromise on quality. This not only leads to a low-quality outcome, but also makes the entire process time consuming and lengthy. As these brushes tend to drip excess amount of paint & you also happen to find lose bristles left behind in the paint.
# Quality of paint brush & rollers make a significant difference, in holding & distribution of paint. High quality paint brushes can also be used well by beginners & inexperienced home painters, as the bristles uphold their shape & hold the paint more consistently.
# We do not recommend highly expensive brushes for a DIY project. But if you are a professional, investing in top-quality roller or brush can work wonderfully.
Size & Shape
# In-house experts at painting companies, recommend 2.5inch angled brush, for added flexibility & control. The angle makes it easy to get a clean, sharp & defined edge while cutting around floor, trim & ceiling.
# With respect to rollers for walls, experts suggest using a paint roller between 7 to 12 inches wide.
# A decent mid-grade brush will be available in nylon or nylon/polyester combination bristles. Makes sure to check the smoothness. Smoother the bristles, better will be the final look.
# To roll out paint on an average wall, a polyester roller sleeve also known as cover with a nap of 3/8inches will serve the purpose.
