Is it faster to spray or roll paint?
It’s a choice that many do-it-yourselfers face, and it can be quite a dilemma. After all, paint spraying is fast: no one can doubt that. Paint rolling is slower than spraying, but you’re able to lay down a thicker coat. Plus, you’ll have less prep work.
Are paint spray guns any good?
Paint sprayers are usually a poor choice for small painting projects. You may spend more time with preparation work and with clean-up than you would with the actual painting. Consequently, paint sprayers are best suited for large painting projects —a rarity for most do-it-yourself painters.
Do you have to thin paint for a sprayer?
Yes, the latex paint does need to be thinned. Even though latex paint is water-based, it is thicker than the oil-based paint varieties. The thick latex paint needs to be thinned to be able to spray a fine mist of paint. Before applying your paint, it is a good idea to test out the paint’s viscosity.
Is spray painting a house as good as brush painting?

What would you do if your paint does not spray from your gun or comes out blotchy?
If your paint gun is not spraying paint at all, it’s most likely due to a clog either in the air vent hole or the hose. Clean any dried paint with a toothpick, and use a cleaning solvent to clear any remaining gunk. If you’ve cleaned your paint gun and find that it still isn’t spraying, take a look at the air supply.
