A quality roller frame is a critical part of every professional painter’s tool kit. A good frame will ultimately save time and effort, so it’s very important to choose the best one possible. The type and size of paint rollers needed will depend on the size of the project, as well as the skill level of the painter.
Sizes usual range from 2 to 18 inch versions. For more options makers offer a range of different handle sizes as well.
For larger scale roller applications you can choose metal or plastic frames.
Large paint rollers are usually used for interior commercial painting. Although they require considerable effort, larger roller frames can cover sizable areas quickly, and they are very useful when ‘back rolling.’
