Paint rollers, the wrong one can mean the difference between a good paint job and a bad one.

Don't cheap out on your roller, you need a sturdy roller to give you the right pressure and control.

Look for a steel cage and construciton with a comfortable handle that you can grip comfortably.

Make sure that it has a threaded base that you can screw and extension pole onto.

You'll also want to test your roller head to be sure it fits snugly you don't want a roller sliding off the cage when you're working.

When you're picking a cover look for dense fibers for the best coverage.

If you're painting a smoother surface you want shorter fibers and for coarse surfaces you want longer fibers.

Just a few simple steps to ensure that you choose the right roller for the job. I'm Mrs. Fixit and it's just that simple!
