Now we will have a look at each of them in detail.

BRUSHES: Brushes are used to paint the walls in a perfect manner. Only the right brush can give you the perfect finish. Our interior and exterior brushes do the job well and are durable, assuring you of smooth application and a long-lasting finish. Also applying paint with a paint brush sounds really easy. Grab a brush and paint! Sounds simple, doesn't it? Painting walls is by far the most common DIY home improvement project—so common that almost everyone thinks they know exactly how to do it. Professional painters, however, know that it's not as simple as it first looks and that there are proper techniques that make the job faster and give you much better results. There is a process to proper paint brush usage, and it involves these steps: Loading the Paintbrush, Applying and Distributing Paint, Smoothing out the Paint.

There are a number of types of brushes that are used for different purposes. Let us have a look at them.

Never agree for a cheaper paint brush just because you think it’s cheap. This is a long time investment and a cheaper brush can ruin your paintjob. High quality or more expensive brushes have distinct advantages over the cheaper ones. First of all, a high quality brush will finish the job more quickly. This is because a top-quality brush has the ability to "hold" more paint in reservoir, which means you will spend less time "painting the can" than applying the paint to the surface.

A top-quality brush will also not shed bristles like a cheaper brush, because of how firmly the bristles are seated in the ferrule (the metal band that attaches the bristles to the handle), and also determined by the material used as plugs (space plugs inside the ferrule that bond the bristles in the ferrule, add taper to the bristles, and finally create "wells" in the centre of the bristles to hold paint) in the ferrule. Also, a top-quality brush will have a tapered end, which means there are shorter bristles on the outside and longer bristles in the centre.

Now moving on to the next tool on our list, let us get started with the rollers.

ROLLERS: these are an important tool to paint your home. It helps you paint the wide walls. The disadvantage of rollers id that it cannot reach to the edges and the corners of the walls. But with the help of rollers it is really easy to cover a wider area within no time and also it ensures the neatness and the even spread of the paint over the walls. Always read the packaging of a roller cover to ensure that it is made to paint the surface you need it to. This can save you from too rough of a texture on a normally smooth surface. In addition to the different nap lengths, there are also textured paint roller covers. These covers add a pattern to your painted surface. Using a textured paint roller is more difficult than using a standard roller. But the results can be beautiful with a little practice. Knowing which paint roller to choose can save you time and improve the completed look of your next painting project. Picking the appropriate paint roller requires knowing the different types of paint rollers and the different naps that cover paint rollers. Whether you’re painting smooth trim or a rough ceiling, there is an appropriate roller that will have subtle differences from the rest.
