Whether you paint, stain or varnish with normal paint brushes, you might take a lot of time and effort, not to mention the right technique. As a result, we want something easier that takes less of our time so we use paint roller instead.
A paint roller usually helps you accomplish the task faster. However, if you get the one with lousy a frame, instead of saving your time, you’re gonna spend a lot of time pushing the roller cover back to the frame and those awful finishes might get you frustrated in no time.
In this article, we will help you select the best paint roller frame by providing a list of the top paint roller frame so you can base on this list to make your own decisions.
This is the table that summarizes the details of the product in our list. It includes the products from three famous brands such as Wooster Brush, Purdy, and Shur-line. There are four paint roller frames of the common size which is 9-inches. The other two are bigger, ranged from 12-inches to 18-inches.
In this article, we review the list of paint roller frames in the most common used size, which is 9-inches. Besides, we also include products with larger sizes from 12 inches to 18 inches.In the 9-inches section and 12 to 18 inches section, we have five products that serve different needs.
Wooster Brush R017-9 Sherlock – We include this product for the lazy or busy readers who have no time to do research. The overall performing of this product is superb. On top of that, the price is pretty low yet durable. It is doing well in every aspect except for being noisy and heavy.
Purdy Pro-Extra Cageless is made with aluminum alloy material, providing a strong, durable yet light-weighted roller frame. If your hands get tired easily, buy this one.
However, the product is cageless. Thus, it is not good enough to hold the roller nap in place. You might have to waste your time pushing it back to the roller frame over and over again. Everything has its cost, so evaluate carefully base on your cost and benefit before purchasing it.
Shur-Line Premium Twist N’ Reach is equipped with the flexible three-sections extension pole that can reach up to 3 feet (0.9 meters). With a simple twist, you can extend the pole from 18-inches to 33-inches (0.45 meter to 0.83 meters). Such a long reach is suitable for painting high walls and ceilings without using a ladder.
Although the pole is flexible, it can be broken easily if applied enough pressure. Be careful when using it. Put some epoxy paste and wrap it with fiberglass if necessary.
Purdy Adjustable Paint Roller Frame – Purchasing multiple frame rollers for several covers might cost you a huge amount of money if you only purchase the high-quality ones. Nonetheless, if you get the crappy ones, it might not do the job.
To solve this problem, why don’t you get a high-quality roller frame that can fit all the covers you own (from 12-inches to 18-inches). Even though the price is a little bit high, it is still more inexpensive than purchasing multiple high-quality roller frames.
Unfortunately, the clips used to hold the roller cover, are made of plastic, it might not hold up to the pressure of rolling all day and might slide out. Make sure to apply just sufficient pressure to keep it from being slid out or broken.
Wooster Brush Big Ben is designed to hold 18-inches roller cover. Such cover size can cover a large area of the ceilings or the walls. You can complete the painting job faster with this one.
Despite the large size, it is made of extra-strong polypropylene, providing a strong, durable yet light-weighted roller frame. You don’t have to worry about getting your hand tired because of the large size.
The roller clips, same as those of Purdy Adjustable, are made of plastic. Make sure to be gentle with them.
Wooster Brush is famous for producing quality paint brushes, let’s see how it performs in the paint roller frames market.
We confidently rate this one the best product in our list. It has superb quality and durability, dealing well with the cover slippage problem so you don’t waste your time pushing it back, and can be cleaned up without messing your hands.
Judging from such qualifications, it serves perfectly the main purpose of buying a paint roller frame, to save your precious time. Unless you have a problem with your ears or want something light-weighted, you should consider purchasing it.
Purdy is another well-known brand of this industry. Hence the price of Purdy’s product is usually high compared to others because of “Purdy quality”. However, will the paint roller frame from Purdy live up to its name? We will evaluate its performance so you can judge on your own.
The price and the cover slippage are huge minor points of this product. You might end up wasting a lot of time with these problems if you are not an expert.
The only good thing about this product is the plastic made a universal threaded handle, providing a comfortable grip and fitting with most of the standard extension poles. Besides, the aluminum alloy making the roller frame durable and light-weighted.
Anyway, if you want a light-weighted and durable paint roller frame without minding spending some extra cash then it should not be a problem.
From the words ‘Twist ‘N Reach’, you probably can guess the selling point of this product right? The twist pole is what makes this product unique, and we will show you what so special about the twist pole and other features of this product.
By and large, it does a good job with that twist pole. Use it gently and so you can use it again. By the way, the price is affordable so purchasing a new one won’t be that painful.
Judging from the light-weighted material, the comfort grip cushioned handle, and the twist pole, we strongly recommend Shur-line Twist ‘N Reach for painting ceiling and wall.
Another Purdy’s product, but this one is more unique. Let’s take a look at some of its special features.
Tips: put two metal screws to hold it in place so that it won’t slide out again.
In general, it’s a good product, and everything works just fine except for the price. The typical problem of getting a Purdy’s product is always the price.
But it wasn’t that bad anyway if you own many roller covers in different sizes. You can save a lot of money by not purchasing different roller frames for each cover.
The cost of replacement for the low-quality roller frames you purchase for each roller cover might be even more than the cost of purchasing one strong and durable roller frame. As for that reason, we recommend buying it in case you own multiple roller covers.
The design is a little bit similar to Purdy Adjustable except that it is not adjustable. This roller frame is compatible with 18 inches roller covers. If you need big roller frame for the large ceiling but are somehow unsatisfied with Purdy Adjustable, then you might take a look at this one.
With the fact that it is light-weighted, durable, easy to clean, large area coverage, and more importantly, no cover slippage, making the price of this product is quite reasonable.
Although it has fragile clips just like Purdy’s, you can’t find any solid plastic clips anyway since the material itself is fragile. Besides, the metal material is usually harder to clean.
The product is perfect for you if you are a lazy painter who wants everything to be fast and easy. We recommend using this one with an angled paint brush to cutting in edges and corners.
You can see that choosing the best paint roller frame is not an easy task. It’s important to get one that fits your needs.
We advise that you should pay close attention to the roller frame’s ability to hold the cover tight since you might waste a lot of time pushing the roller cover back to the frame. That goes against the purpose of getting a paint roller frame, which is to accomplish the task faster and easier than regular paint brushes do.
Another important factor that should not be neglected is the weight. If you don’t want to get your hands tired easily, buy the one with the particular weight that your hands can endure. Moreover, find the one that gives you a comfort grip.
For the roller frame size, it’s a situational choice based on your purpose. For example, if you need to paint the high ceiling, get the one with an excellent extension pole.
Overall, we rate Wooster Brush R017-9 Sherlock Roller Frame the best product in our list based solely on the price over the performance.
