“For new builds and big renos, painters mostly stick to spraying. We spray all the walls and the trims and then we’ll roll the final coat on all the walls. Everything is back rolled after you spray it, except for the trim. We use a finefinish tip on the trim so you get a factory finish.” — Matt Beyers, owner of Indelible Paint Works
