Paint Sprayer for log home


Hi,

I have a log home that needs stain every 5 to 7 years and was hoping someone could suggest a good airless paint sprayer to apply the stain to the exterior of the home. I have seen a Graco 190es for ~$500 and Wagner 9195 for ~$600.

It would get heavy use for 2-4 days then used sparingly for light work the rest of the time.

Thanks in advance.

For that kind of usage, you may be better off renting one, use a garden sprayer for touch ups and such. Keeping one stored that long, even if properly prepped, is chancy at best. Parts seize, seals deteriorated... etc. JMHO

Unless you have other uses for a paint sprayer, rent a good one every 7 years. From a real paint store. Buying your own appropriate tips is not a bad idea IMO. If you keep them clean you will know they will work. Last yahoo to use the equipment may have forgetten to be diligent about cleaning them.

I would also think about a tank sprayer, heavy nap roller cover, or giant but quality brush. Or some combination. By the time you mask everything off for using a sprayer, you could be done.

If you do spray, remember to mask all the windows, doors, light fixtures, doorbell, garage door handle, nearby sidewalk or deck surfaces and all first. Move the cars, dogs, cats, pet elk or whatever too. Turn the patio over, even if it is poured concrete, too. Have your neighbors downwind do the same if they are close.

I may get grief for this, but it worked for me so something to consider:

I bought the cheapo H. F. HVLP all in one turbine system to prime and paint our wicker patio furniture and it did a pretty darn good job. I was pretty amazed.
I got it on sale and with a coupon for like $75 I think?

Sherwin W. Oil exterior primer then latex exterior paint over bare, wore out, pressure washed, partly dryrotted old wicker furniture.

I had to refill the paint cup several times and thinned the primer and paint slightly, and strained it and was good to go.
A helper with a 2nd fresh cup of stain coming every 10 minutes or so and you'd be ready to rock. It's key to do it on a near windless day... and you may have to backbrush a little for optimal penetration.

Rockler sells it as well.

Good luck!
