CHECK that the roller has a heavy wire frame and that you’ll be able to get re­place­ment sleeves (the bit you ap­ply paint with), so you don’t have to bin the whole roller when the sleeve gets worn or you fail to clean it prop­erly.

Roller sleeves take a great deal of clean­ing (in wa­ter) and if you in­ad­ver­tently leave any paint to dry on the sleeve, it may ruin the fin­ish the next time you paint.

If you don’t have time to clean the sleeve prop­erly, it’s tempt­ing to leave it to soak, but this can cause the frame to rust, which bleeds into the paint when you use the roller. So take the sleeve off the frame first.
