Airless Sprayer for Beadboard??


Can I spray beardboard (4x8 Georgia Pacific plybead panels) and just backroll with a roller, or do I need to brush the paint into the grooves?

Thanks

Airless Sprayer for Beadboard??


Great! I appreciate your help....Again!!

So, no brushing!!!!!!!!!! Are there any special techniques for grooved surfaces, or will the sprayer fill the gaps without any problems?

I'm still on the learning curve. A couple things I've learned is I'm using MUCH more paint spraying then I estimated. As a matter of fact, I don't think I'm going to have enough paint for my project. Also, I got a few sags/runs on my chair rail (I assume I was overloading the paint when I overlapped it (I did above and below the chair rail separately and used the chair molding as my starting/stopping point).

By the way, I didn't have any problem backrolling myself. My MAJOR, MAJOR problem was seeing!! Between the paint on the goggles and them fogging up, I couldn't see anything!!

Thanks again for the help!!
