when spraying a house do you back roll with a bucket of paint or just roll the paint on the walls after spraying

Backroll new drywall. It saves a lot of dipping and time.

I think i understand what you are asking.
No bucket, just back roll over what you just sprayed. It helps lay the paint down and will reduce fuzz. Is best with 2 ppl. One to spray and another to backroll.

I know when I spray new construction and am looking for some dimple effect I back roll. I usually have a helper when I am spraying ,having my helper do the back rolling. I use a 1/2 to 3/4 inch roller skin depending on the amount of dimple I am trying to have.I also use a telescopic roller extension pole with a 5 gallon bucket.The bucket will have a grid in it to keep the roller from getting to loaded up with paint. Keeping the millage and dimple all uniform and no fat lines. Hope this helps you out.

You really should give the 18" roller a try for back rolling.

If you have two people, backroll as it gets sprayed.

If you're going it alone, you'll need a bucket.
