Spray Gun Recommendations??

Posted by ginnys_2010 (My Page) on

Years ago I bought a Black & Decker spray gun to paint the inside of my garage, and it worked great. The only problem was keeping the hose line in the bucket, and the cleaning of the gun - granted this was a low dollar gun. Now I'm looking at painting the entire inside of the house - latex, and am thinking of doing it with a gun vs roller and brush. This is a DYI project (not professional painter), and I'm looking at Graco Paint Sprayer (Model 257065 (Lowes)) and Milwaukee Airless/Fine Finish (Model M4910-21 (Home Depot)). I've kinda crossed the Milwaukee off the list 'cause I read the internals are really Ryobi. Anyone have any suggestions on which sprayers are the best? Or any others I should be considering?

Thanks for the help!

Rent a Professional spray system.

You can purcahse the highest end sprayer on the market , but if you are inexperienced with the process, it will result in the same as using a harbor freight special. You are still planning on backrolling along side the spraying as an assumption? It's all about the prep as well. A sprayer is only a small part of the equation for a quality paint project if you go the sprayer route. Do some research if you are inexperienced and as mentioned above, if it's a one time project, you might consider renting along with a helper for back rolling.

I've never seen a spray painted wall that looks like home. :)
