Rolling the 18×18 Kitchen Ceiling

image

John bought a large pan for the 18″ roller. He poured more than one gallon of primer to start.

John prefers an 18″ roller on large ceilings because it holds a lot more paint. The goal is to get as much paint as possible on the ceiling. By using an 18″ roller, it eliminates railroad tracks.

John rolled right over the high hats. Before he started, he vacuumed the dust out of all high hats and outlets. Otherwise, the dust would be picked up by the paint and rolled onto the surface.

He bought an Adjustable Pro Roller Frame that expands from 12″ to 18.” This allows him a lot more flexibility for different size painting projects.

John has an airless sprayer which is great for jobs like this one but he feels more comfortable using an 18″roller.

Looks flawless…

Tip: With a 5-in-1 tool, take out particles or chunks of debris. John uses the light/lamp, holding it about a foot from the ceiling looking for dust/dirt particles along with any railroad tracks. He corrects imperfections before the field dries.

  1. This is exciting. Even when you are painting a color on the wall, just getting the primer on gives you a sense of what the room will look like with paint.
