Roller marks using semigloss pain(t)
 
WE PUT UP NEW DRYWALL PRIMED IT TWICE AND PAINTED USING VALSPAR SEMI GLOSS KITCHEN ENAMEL. ROLLER MARKS ARE SHOWING AFTER 2 COATS ANY SUGGESTIONS? WE HAVE SPENT ALOT OF MONEY ON THIS REMODEL AND WE WOULD LIKE FOR IT TO LOOK REALLY GOOD. FAIRLY NOVICE WITH PAINT INFORMATION ANY SUGGESTIONS WOULD BE MUCH APPRECIATED:confused1::confused1:

First- all caps is like yelling . Stop it.

Lots of reasons- what was the nap size of the roller cover? Do you know how to lay off paint?
Semi is not easy- it shows all novice errors.

I'll try and find some basic rolling instructions-

Here's one

Also- I work with remoddlers and strongly encourage them to NOT have the homeowner do the finishing. Like you said- you put a lot of money into a remodel- but the finishing is what you will always be looking at. You are proving my point. Sorry to be blunt- but it is the truth. There actually IS some skill to painting.

Budget or no, you need to hire a REAL painter. As brush pointed out, this step is what the world sees and needs to be done right, a 3/8 nap is not the answer.:no:
