Jmays - I used the SW pva and it had no flashing but then I rolled it on with a 1/2 inch roller and did not spray it. I make enough mess with just a roller.

Lets just say its a good thing there is still only concrete flooring.

My only issue was one spot that I didn't sand real well that I had to go back and spot fill and then hit again.

Serious question, does spraying put on a thinner or thicker coat? I know its a more even one but curious if spraying is thicker or thinner. Never sprayed so really don't know.

"Does spraying put on a thinner or thicker coat"

It can really go either way. With a sprayer, you have more control over the coating thickness, so Whether the coat is thick or thin is determined by the technique of the person spraying. The same thing is true with rolling.

Spraying has the potential to put on a very thin coat, and it is often done that way. But it doesn't have to be.

Personally, I pay close attention to coating thickness, as I feel it's very a important factor in how paint performs. I have posted this before, but this is a simple tool used to measure the thickness of a wet coating. It's called a 'wet film gauge'. If you ask, they will usually give you one for free at SW. The little teeth on the card sink into the wet coating to varying degrees to give you a good idea of how thick your coat is. Most interior latex paints are specified to go on between 3.8-4 mills.
