painting T1 11 plywood siding


does anyone have trick for painting T1-11 siding, I am using Brush for grooves, and roller for the flat face of siding, It is REALLLY a hassle and very time consuming to switch between the 2, I wish there was a roller to cover it all in one move. All suffestions are apriciated. Thanks

spray it on, or brush grooves first, then roll.

You can try a pad. I remember painting a house full of T1-11 and tried several types. Ended up with the pad as it seemed to be the best. Nothing was great. Spraying has got to be the best way to go.

1" or 1 1/4" roller nap. Keep roller nap very wet.

Spraying would be the most efficent method of application. Otherwise use a a 9 or 18 inch roller with a 3/4 inch nap and brush the grooves.
