When it comes to painting a wall, it’s no surprise that you’re not going to like it and would prefer to be done with it ASAP. But, which is the right tool to make that happen, is it the trusty roller or the paint sprayer that claims to do it better?
Let’s find out:
Let’s start with a basic introduction of what each thing does: with a roller; you’ll be using the tool to roll the pain with equal proportions on a wall whereas with a sprayer you’ll need to do so prepping after which it’s a relatively fast procedure.
But, what gives the roller an edge over spraying is that you won’t need to do any prep mentioned above which involves masking those zones on which you don’t want the paint to spray. There are quite a few advantages of just not letting these such as less wastage since roller puts every drop of the paint on the surface instead of spreading around on unintended surfaces.
However, that doesn’t necessarily mean that spraying doesn’t have it set of benefits. The amount of detail that you can give to objects is not possible with rollers; it’s incredibly fast if you are painting places like your garage or ones without any unintended surfaces around since it warrants no prep time at all.
In a nutshell, it depends on your budget, your needs, and your surrounding area. To answer our question on the title: Spraying is better because it gets the work done faster and rolling is better because you will be keeping wastage to a minimum and thus save some cash at the end of the day.
