HOW TO CHOOSE
THE BEST ROLLER COVER
Use this guide to help you choose the right roller cover type, size and thickness (nap) for any job.
Selecting a roller is similar to selecting a brush and depends on the type of paint (latex or oil) and the surface you’re painting (smooth, rough or textured). You’ll also want to consider the size and, of course, the quality.
Stipple (orange peel) is the pattern that the roller leaves on the surface. The amount of stipple depends on the roller’s fabric density, which can range from tightly woven fabric to loosely microfiber & knitted fabric.
When production matters most
Knit fabric holds more paint and covers more area, leaving some stipple (orange peel).
When smooth finish matters most
Woven & Microfiber fabric helps reduce lint while providing an exceptional finish, with less stipple (orange peel).
For fast, beautiful results
Choose the combination of material and density
that will hold the most paint while still releasing it
evenly with minimal splattering over your surface.
