To spray or not to spray!

A frequently asked question when I’m painting interiors is,”are you going to spray?” Well it depends on what type of job it is, what the budget might be, and if you want to be able to touch it up. If you have a rental and cost is a factor, then spraying is the way to go. When I paint doors, trim, furniture, or cabinets, I almost always spray. Spraying is much faster and will produce outstanding results, but it has its downfalls. As the depth of color increases, the ability for touch up decreases. Also the touch ups will flash, meaning the sheen will appear different. It is always best to brush and roll the walls, if you know you will be living there for awhile. Spraying may help keep your budget, but remember the disadvantages.
