contractor left roller fuzz

Posted by peonyfan (My Page) on

I had some moldings replaced and noticed that roller fuzz is left behind. The scope of work was for one coat of paint. The workers were still finishing and I couldn't use the kitchen, so we left for dinner, but I mentioned the fuzz before I left when the worker asked me to take a look and make sure everything looked ok. Does this stuff sand off? and/or is this just to be expected or should I say something to the owner? Thanks.

It sands off, but sometimes it takes a bit of work. It's not really to be expected either, usually comes from using cheap roller covers.

RE: contractor left roller fuzz

If a painter is leaving FUZZ...they don't know what the H*ll they're doing!

Any decent painter should know to use covers that are good enough NOT to fuzz!! I'm always shocked how scared people (AND some painters....) are of paying a couple extra bucks for a good roller that will save them time, AND make their work look better!!!


RE: contractor left roller fuzz

Should'nt have been using a "roller" in the first place

One coat of paint?? No primer???

Who are you if not the owner?????

RE: contractor left roller fuzz

That's all true, but sometimes even good roller covers can shed. They go through good and bad phases, just like paint. Wooster is notorious for this and it's why I always save old roller covers that I'm sure won't shed when the new ones I buy start to screw me.

RESOLUTION: contractor left roller fuzz

Good news--the company (that's what I meant when I said owner) called to say that he'd be back to finish up before I had a chance to contact them. I just think it's odd, like some of you said, to not spend a couple extra bucks to avoid the fuzz problem in the first place. Yes, it was primed, I didn't think to mention that. He'd done drywall for me and didn't notice any fuzz but I guess it's more apparent w/semigloss than flat primer on drywall. Thanks all.
