Half Decent Rollers

Post by lijongtao » Wed Jun 06, 2018 3:04 am

I'm about to start painting the hall and landing. I am looking for some very good quality paint rollers. They are for a smooth ceiling and smooth walls in emulsion.

Can anyone recommend the best ones to get to do a good job?

Many thanks Li

At a minimum "Hamilton perfection medium pile" ... and they may also have the word "microfibre" thrown in or not. I am sure there are better roller sleeves out there (American stuff).

You will need a 9" sleeve or two and a frame/handle for it. It you are going to use a pole to reach higher parts you would be better off also getting and using a 12" sleeve as above and a double frame + pole fot it. There are trays for 12" sleeves (I think) around £5 or a bit more (toolstation?) which are easier to use than a scuttle.

I second the Hamilton perfection roller sleeves, the 9 inch are better than 12 unless you are doing ceilings, I mean 12 is just heavy and unwieldy on a wall.
You can get them at many stores, they help you avoid paint flashing! In other words, make a nice finish much easier.

Also, they wash well and are not too expensive!
