Default Rolling Walls

These are my basic steps to rolling walls.

1. Clean sleeve with tape to get unwanted
fuzz off. Nothing pisses a good rollerman off more than crap in his finish product.

2. Prepare paint, bucket and grid for painting insure all 3 are clean.

3. Cover up as needed and begin painting.

4. Load roller prevent excess paint on frame.

5. Unload roller on wall surface in a alphanumeric patern.

6. Lay paint on, keep roller loaded like your going to roll to THAILAND!!! Dry rolling will ruin a roller.

7. Lay it off, keep a tight steeple, no B52's

You can tell an experienced rollman from a rookie. Their walls dry faster.

I like to roll right to left with my left hand infront and my right hand in back. I will work 2 wet edges.

Then I work left to right with my right hand in front and left hand in back. This works all your muscles equally so you don't wear out 1 side of your body.

Pulling both wet edges into 1 in the center of the wall.

Certain types of paints and wall finishes my technique may vary slightly.

Tried and true method of rolling $$$ chaching

ABC-123. I really like N's I's & M's,1's & 0's.
I have done ALOT of swing stage work
on towers over the years where a 2 man crew will POWER roll. 1 man just laying it on and 1 man laying it off. Keeps the clutter down on the shorter stages where space is at a premium. 3's & Z's work the best when hanging and banging 100'+.

Excellent point Ole34. Body mechanics are
very important.
2-4, 4-8 and 6-18 foot poles are my friends.

We'll need all the rollerman we can get. And I'm sure tight stipple wont matter too
much. I heard when it does break ground 22,000 homes plus.
