nvesting in a good quality roller sleeve is a must. Cheaper covers tend to not hold enough paint and increase the time it takes to do a good job. Use a 3/8 inch (1 cm) nap for flat paint on walls and ceilings, 1 inch (2.5 cm) nap for rough surfaces like textured ceilings, and ¼ inch (.63 cm) nap for satin or semi-gloss paint.

It is essential to pick the correct roller sleeve for the type of paint and substrate you are painting. We recommend the following:

   Purdy White Dove for leaving a perfectly smooth, lint free finish ideal for domestic jobs.

   Purdy Marathon for where versatility and a quality appearance is desired.

   Purdy Colossus for larger jobs where productivity is essential.

Ensure you brush around the edges first, as rollers cannot get tight to edge. The first painting step is to brush along the ceiling, inside corners and mouldings.


Start with the top half of the wall, so that drips fall on unpainted areas. Dip the roller about halfway into the paint. Run the roller along the grid until the sleeve is nicely saturated but not dripping.

Work in small zones of two to three square feet at a time. Listen to the roller. It should sound wet. When the roller loses that crinkly, moist sound, it’s time to load it up with more paint.

Paint a stripe up the wall, bottom to top. At the top, turn the roller sideways, then zigzag it back down. Repeat these steps across the length of the wall, with each new stripe overlapping a three-inch portion of the area already painted. For all types of rooms, most experts recommend two to three coats.


Scrape excess paint from the roller before you wash it. Use your putty knife, or better yet, a special roller-scraping tool with a semi-circular cut-out in the blade. A Purdy 6-in-1 tool is perfect for this task.

Wash the roller with warm water and detergent. Lather up the roller and scrub the mat with your fingers. The detergent will pull a lot of the paint residue out of the mat and make the next step easier. Rinse the roller cover until the water runs clear.
