Paint interior with spray gun or Wagner power roller or other?
Welcome AliceT, to the best DIY'r site on the web.
"I'm going to use white on the celings and trim" - Hope you are planning on (2) differenct whites, ceiling white for the ceiling and gloss white for the trim.
1 - what is the best cleaner to use and the best (easiest) method to use to clean everything?
Soap and water and elbow grease, works every time, paint cleanup warm water for latex paint.
2 - Is flat paint the best choice for ceilings? It's what I usually use.
I always go for ceiling white, in a 5 gallon pail, and have used the big box and SW, I really didn't see any differnce.
3 - I have access to a good quality airless paint sprayer, but I've never used one before. Would using one be fairly easy? Any faster than painting with a roller? I also have an old Wagner power roller that I've used about a half dozen times in the past with good results. I only use it for really big jobs (last one was the outside of a house that had 12" wide siding) because cleanup time is so long. But I do find that on large jobs it is much faster than a regular roller. So I guess my question is would using the paint sprayer be any faster or better than the Wagner power roller?
Sprayer are faster if you know what you are doing, lots and lots of overspray, oh did I mention the overspray.
When its all said and done there is usually more said than done
