The Skinny on Paint Rollers

PAY AT­TEN­TION TO A COU­PLE OF KEY TERMS TO MAKE SURE YOU GET THE RIGHT ROLLER FOR THE JOB.

Do It Yourself - - DIY Q&A -

1. NAP: A larger nap means a less smooth sur­face of the roller. This works well on rough, tex­tured sur­faces like brick. The longer fibers make it eas­ier to get into all those nooks and cran­nies.

At the other end of the spec­trum, the small­est naps—about ¼ inch—of­fer a su­per smooth fin­ish for walls and other con­sis­tent sur­faces.

2. ROLLER FRAME: Smaller rollers are de­signed for small ar­eas like trim and cab­i­nets. A big­ger frame makes quick work of walls and ceil­ings.
