Can you use a paint sprayer and compressor to paint the interior of a house? We are trying to get a home and will need to repaint most of the interior. I would like to use m air compressor (this makes it tool related) and a sprayer instead of rollers and brushes.

Frank, I used a sprayer on new construction, only once. A roller leaves a texture. The wagner paint sticks works best for me. The stick holds about a pint + and the paint is squeezed out the roller. Non stop painting. Makes painting the ceiling easy.

A cup sprayer doesn't spray latex paint worth a D. By the time you thin it down where it will spray it will take 4 or 5 coats to cover. Latex paint needs to be under pressure to spray well. Using a compressor you would need a pressure pot to spray. I have a 2 1/2 gal pressure pot attached to a siphon sprayer with 25' of hose. Still if it's just walls and ceiling without a lot of detail to mask I would rather use a airless.

If it"s new construction before the woodwork and floors are installed a sprayer is OK if you cover the windows and doorways with plastic.

In an existing house even the professional painters use rollers and trim with brushes. They only put plastic on the floor and tape it to the top of the baseboards, no other taping. If one person is working alone he covers one wall at a time with a roller then trims the edges of that wall with a brush. A two man crew has one person on a roller and one trimming with a brush. They carry a damp rag to wipe off any drips and spatter from the rollers before the wall is dry. They are fast. and do a good job without much taping.

A friend gave me a commercial airless sprayer. It is intended for large jobs. It was surplus to his company because they could hire it out for less than they could do it themselves. Any way I used it for the exterior of my shop. I was amazed at how little over spray there was. I loaned it to a friend to do the third floor of his house. He loved it. It is true that you should roll behind it. but it goes very fast because you never go back to the can to reload.

On a new house spray works great, on an older house it is just as quick to roll and a lot less mess. A lot of the pro painter's in my area still roll even after spraying for an evener finish.

I restored quite of few house over the last 50 yrs.

If the house is of vintage, try the procedure "they' used when the house was new.
Probably hand brushing. Later rollers, and of course these days....spray.

If the house is YOURS, I would use the best way for your next project.

Moral to the story.....speedy...spray.
Down side....lots of prep. and cleaning afterwards.

Final time involved about the same, regardless.

John,PA PS: I even ROLL the finishes on vehicles. Sand out, and buff. Same value to the vehicle, afterwards.

it takes longer to set up and cover every thing then its worth. it works good on a new house that not trimed out and no door to cover

I have done this several times.

When I was a kid (a long time ago) I worked for a pro-painter. We sprayed the interiors of homes with a 20 gallon compressor and a Binks cup with gun combo. (quart size from what I remember) In a the larger areas we used a 2.5 gallon pressure tank and the gun by itself fed by a 25 foot hose with line. Remember to tape off mask off all stuff you do not want painted.

The best is when it is new construction, you only have to mask off the window with a hammer tacker and visqueen.

I painted the interior of a porch and the inside of my sister's laundromat with an airless sprayer. Cover up everything else you don't want painted because the mist will be all over everything. Wear a mask too.

I picked a roller that has paint in the handle,kind of like a giant syrenge with a roller on the end it worked surprisingly well really speeds up the job you draw paint into it and it has a racketing handle as the roller runs out squeeze the handle and just keep on trucking makes cielings a breeze no ladders needed unless you have really tall cielings

You got it right C.R.
Google Paint Stick. Just cut in with a brush and roll away. Clean up is the hardest part but once you do it, its a breeze. 1 reminder "don"t underestimate how much paint will be needed"

I painted my entire house and my son's house with a airless sprayer,just mask the wood work and cover the floors,the clean-up of the sprayer took longer than the actual painting,turned out great!

Best not. Over spray on floor, edging is an issue. I would use a roller.
