and with dark colors it just magnifies the problem. I had one house that had to be sprayed corner to corner, you couldn't touch it with a roller or a brush, iit was a PIA. Try telling the elite that they cant have the color they want. one lid we had to have it skimmed coated and paint with no primer, because as we built the paint, it flashed bad. that was a painful but yet good learning experience.In my neck of the woods,smooth texture is in.
Usually in the high end NC homes,it's all smooth.
It's a real PITA though,cause you cant touch them up,everything you do to tu a smooth wall shows IME.
Even when I backroll the wall,I can go to roll some tu spots,it shows.
Really ticks me off too,end up rolling whole walls that dont need to be repainted over some silly little dings the carpet people put on em or whatever.
If the tu spot is really tiny,I will get a small brush and just put a tiny dot on it and that will work,hand prints and smears that will wipe off thats what I do.
I hate touch ups.
