How to paint a whole house very quickly?


Thanks very much for all your thoughts. Because some rooms are plaster we'll probably need 3 coats and because the other rooms have been painted dark colours we'll need 2, so really we'll be painting the equivalent of about 26 rooms.

If spraying is much harder and doesn't save much time because of the taping that's fine

Just was hoping to save a bit of time as I've had to learn the electrics and joinery so far and that's taken 2 months.

Brushes and rollers it is

Thanks again.

if you want to save some time spray the closets and ceilings.. not much you can screw up there ( unless you have finished floors already in) and minimal prep as you just need to avoid the light fixtures and you can spray on the ceiling/wall joint as your cutting that in w a brush anyway. they are pretty fun to do in my opinion

One thing that helps move things along is using the bigger roller covers.
The typical size is 9" , there is also 12, 14 and 18" . I like the 14, not too big and heavy, and can get most places. But you need a special frame and bucket to use it.
Wooster makes the whole set up, and I think Purty has it too. Might have to buy online.

Plaster is the same as drywall. Prime then two top coats.

Using the bigger roller is a time saver. I bought a 24 inch one and have used it, but it is a pain in the back the next day.

Bottom line, cutting in, trim and other detail work is what takes time. Rolling it out is FAST.

24! Dang, I haven't even see one of those! I bet it was 18...

Jarhead- is the big ben adjustable to different sizes? I actually ( and suscefully) use the one with wing nuts. But I don't ride it every day. Needs to be a big enough space or many rooms, same color to justify bringing the set up. I don't carry the big bucket ( which , BTW, is a rubbermade 14 gal bin with 2 screens wired together for the 14" for me) all the time.

big ben is not adjustable... 3 years in production painting gave me lots of practic on using the 18 in big open and close tight spaces.. its all i use unless im doing a small bath or kitchen..

I bought a Big Ben this year----Nice tool. My old 18" frame was magnesium and would leave oxide streaks in the paint .--Poor design,the roller caps rubbed the frame.

It would only be faster with an airless if there is only a sub floor down, then prime everything and paint all of your ceilings with the airless, but you still have to back roll when spraying. In a finished house that's just getting a re-paint I would not think about using an airless I would just brush and roll. An airless is very efficient, but there is a time and place to use one and not to use one.
