Interior Paint Problem Solver

Back to Problem Solver Menu
Roller Spattering
Tendency of a roller to throw off small droplets of paint during application.

Possible Cause:
Use of exterior paint on an interior surface.
Use of lower grades of latex paint.

Higher quality paints are formulated to minimize spattering. Using high quality rollers which have the proper resiliency further reduces spattering. For ceilings, use a premium ceiling paint. Overloading the roller with paint will result in excess spatter, as will overworking the paint once it is applied to the substrate. Working in 3' square sections applying the paint in a zigzag "M" or "W" pattern and then filling in the pattern will also lessen the likelihood of spattering.
