I have the answers you’re looking for when taking on large exterior painting projects.Are you looking for a sprayer that is easy to use? Are you looking for a sprayer that is easy to clean? How about one that will give you a professional look? You’ve come to the right place because the Control Pro 190 Cart Sprayer is all of the above, and then some!
Evaluate the Space
Our back porch has a vaulted ceiling, and a load of rafters, making a paint brush and roller completely out of the question. I needed a paint sprayer that could take on the volume of outdoor space, and I needed a high efficiency one with a lot of reach and very little overspray.
Choose a Sprayer
The answer: The Control Pro 190 Cart sprayer. I don't even know where to start first, because this paint sprayer is so great! The first selling point is that there is no need to thin out the paint before spraying. There is no guessing game if you've mixed the paint too thinly, or if still too thick. This sprayer works straight from can to spraying, even with a primer / paint combination. And the best part? It is high efficiency!! Simply stick the wand in the paint, prime the machine, then start to paint. This absolutely is the best way to spray a porch.
Adjust the Spray Pattern
The spray is adjustable, from more of a narrow spray to a wider one, and the coverage is so even. When painting the walls, I found that moving the sprayer from left to right, and with spindles moving from top to bottom, works the best.
Move at a Steady Pace
Here is another one of my tips that I found when using this sprayer: I was in question how fast or how slowly the motion should be when I sprayed. The song by the Bee Gees, Stayin’ Alive, has a very consistent and steady beat throughout the song, it isn’t too fast or too slow, and if you follow that beat, that is how fast you should move the sprayer. This is a quick tip from me to you, and will help you achieve that professional look!
The Control Pro 190 sprayer is the best paint sprayer on the market for larger and exterior jobs. It’s easy to use, easy to clean and comes with well-written directions for use. A very wise investment, indeed. See the full post by Farmhouse 1820!
