Best paint roller for quick coverage

13
Posted 15th Dec 2019
Hello does anyone recommend a good roller/tray for quick coverage of walls?

The walls are already painted so just painting over the top with the same colour to freshen up.

Bought a Harris one from B&Q and it’s chronic ! Hardly holds any paint and requires real force to Apply the wall.

Paint pads. Inexpensive, hold paint well and good coverage with minimal splash / spillage.

Tried them recently and the finish was dreadful, had to sand the walls and roller!

Get a proper, angled edging/cutting brush. I have 2 Axus Decor Precision Angled Cutter Brushes and they’re awesome.

This toolstation.com/ham…ton was recomended on a similar thread recently - i've since bought a few and they're a great brush, very easy to get a straight edge finish.
We got ours from Screwfix and they’re excellent.
Thanks all

Learn to cut in and use a 4 inch roller of the same matching brand but smaller to take out the brush marks
