How Will I Know Which is the Best Brush for My Project?

It is always best to ensure that you have multiple paint brushes and paint rollers to complete your project. Paintmaster brushes are made from pure bristles – as such, they all deliver a high-quality service and even coverage for all paints and treatments.

There are several things that you need to consider when choosing the best paint brush for you. These can include:

  • Comfort – Find a brush with a comfortable handle. Easy-grip handles can help you to apply the paint evenly and professionally for as long as you require.
  • Bristle Quality – Different kinds of bristles will deliver a different service. For example, some synthetic bristles are better at applying water-based bristles. In our experience, pure bristles offer the best all-round coverage and service for treatments and paints of all kinds.

You should also take care to choose the right width of brush for your needs. Many projects will require brushes of different widths to complete the project to a high standard.

What are Different Brush Widths Used For?

If you want to create a professional standard paintjob, you need to take advantage of several different brush sizes and rollers. Brushes of different sizes are used for different parts of the painting and decorating project. As such, choosing a brush width of the right size is extremely important. The different brush sizes you’ll need to complete your project include:

  • 4” Pure Bristle Brushes – These are some of the widest handheld brushes available. They can be used to quickly cover a wide surface area to a high-quality. They are large enough to quickly cover all kinds of surfaces, but small enough to easily and comfortable control.
  • 3” Pure Bristle Brushes – These are a good size for covering small, medium and large surfaces. They are most effective on flat, even surfaces and areas with minor decoration, such as woodwork, doors and painting skirting boards. A 3” pure bristle brush is a great medium-sized brush for painting and decorating.
  • 2” Pure Bristle Brushes – 2” pure bristle brushes can be used to comfortably decorate all kinds of surfaces. They are small enough to be easily controlled, but large enough to cover the targeted surface as quickly as possible. They can be used on flat surfaces and to create even lines on decorative surfaces.
  • 1” Pure Bristle Brushes – These small pure bristle brushes are the perfect choice for small surfaces and painting around delicate areas and decoration. 1” pure bristle brushes are commonly used in a range of projects to cut-in paint. These paint brushes are used in almost every project to ensure the surface’s edge are clean and even.

When Should I Abandon the Brush and Use a Professional-Standard Roller?

If you’re looking to carry out a bit of DIY or a domestic project, you may be reluctant to swap the brush for a roller. However, rollers can help you to finish any painting and decorating project much quicker and to a higher standard. Rollers and roller sets can also be used to apply most kinds of paints and treatments. If you’re looking to cover a large surface area, rollers are the most effective method.

There are many situations where a roller will be a better option than a handheld brush – these include:

  • Painting Difficult to Reach Areas – Thanks to the extensions of a paint roller, they can be used to quickly paint surfaces which are out of reach. This means that rollers can be used to high wall and even ceilings. Without a roller, you would be required to install temporary scaffolding to complete these painting and decorating projects.
  • Quickly Covering Large Areas – Thanks to the width of these rollers, you can quickly cover a large area. The roller will apply paint and treatments evenly and to a high standard. Depending on the type of paint, you may need to apply more than one layer to achieve the correct colour.

Here at Paintmaster, we can provide industry-leading painting accessories to help you complete any project as quickly as possible. Whether you’re looking for professional-standard brushes or roller sets to quickly and easily complete any project, we are here for you.
