In this video, you will learn about common paint roller mistakes and how to avoid them.

A common mistake is taking a break from painting at a bad time. You don’t want to stop painting a segment of your house in the middle. Wait until you finish the current part. Otherwise, you will see roller marks where you left off and started again. This can look very ugly and should be avoided.

Another common mistake is not overlapping strokes. You should be overlapping strokes with the roller by about 40%. This will make it much less likely for you to miss a spot. In the end, this will save you time, while also make the surface look great.

People also often do not choose the right roller. Not just any roller will do. Rollers are divided into different types based on the length of the bristles. If you are using a highly textured surface, use a roller with longer bristles.
