If you need to paint a fence, a bedroom, the outside of your house, or furniture, you will need to do that with a brush, roller or a paint sprayer. For a host of reasons, a paint sprayer is a better option than the other two. But paint sprayers of different types, and you will need to find one that works for you. In this post, we will try to help you choose a paint sprayer based on your project.

Choosing a paint sprayer that works for you

There are several types of paint sprayers available, so you need to choose one that works for you. Paint sprayers of two types: low-pressure (HVLP) and airless paint sprayers.

With an electric motor, airless paint sprayers releases paint at high pressure. But if you need very fine spray, you should use an HVLP sprayer because this sprayer uses low pressure to atomize the paint. An HVLP sprayer is a good choice if you need precision of work.

Airless paint sprayers

There are several models of airless paint sprayers. Bases on your project, you should choose a professional model or a handheld unit. Airless sprayers are great if you need to paint pergolas, fences, weatherboards, garage doors, sheds, gazebos, walls and lattices.

These paint sprayers can be used with oil-based paints, water-based paints, topcoats, primers, wood preservatives, aluminum paints, oils, polishes and stains.

Fine paint sprayer

Known as a finishing tool, these sprayers use HVLP technology. They are really good if precision is important for you and you need to paint pipes, shelving, furniture, window frames, cabinetry, shutters etc. If your project involves painting any of these things, feel free to use a fine paint sprayer. They can be used with primers, oil-bases paints, stains and wood preservatives.

Safety

Before you start working, you must ensure safety. Cover surfaces and cover yourself with tape and drop cloths. If your paint needs thinning, use turpentine or water. Read the instructions carefully.
