Paint Problems


Spattering (Roller)


Spattering: A spray of paint droplets from the roller cover as the paint is being applied.

Spattering probable causes: Economy roller covers will generally spatter more. Overloading the roller cover. Over spreading the paint. Selecting an improper roller cover and nap length for the paint type being applied.

Spattering solutions: Use high quality paint and roller covers with proper resiliency to minimize spattering. Avoid overloading the roller cover. Begin with an upward zigzag stroke in an “M” or “W” pattern and fill in the pattern with parallel strokes without leaving the surface.

Primers & interior finishes: Priming is essential for better adhesion, sheen uniformity, mildew control and durability. Select a top quality interior paint in the color and sheen of your choice.
