Today’s article is a side-by-side video comparison of Airless paint spraying versus traditional brushing and rolling.

How long does it take to paint a room?

For a standard room, if you begin by cutting in above the trim, below the ceilings and around the window- and door frames, followed by rolling the walls, it can take you 1-2 hours per coat.

It takes less than 10 minutes to paint a room with an Airless paint sprayer.

Ian Crump at PaintTech demonstrates how long it takes to paint a room, trim and doors.

He uses a traditional roller and brush; and compares that with the efficiency of Airless paint spraying. A timer is provided below the scenes.

How long does it take to paint a room with a sprayer?

It takes less than 10 minutes to paint a room with an Airless paint sprayer.

You will need additional time to prepare the room before spraying.

How long does it take to paint trim?

With the correct spray tip, pressure and technique, a few minutes is all you need to spray trim in a standard room with an Airless paint sprayer, Trim that contains many grooves often takes much longer with a brush and the coverage isn’t as even.

Air-assisted paint spraying will offer a smoother, finer finish than the traditional brushing method.

How long does it take to paint a door?

Using the correct spray tip, pressure and technique, a few minutes is all you need to spray a door in a standard room with an Airless paint sprayer,

The traditional brush and roller method takes a lot longer, especially when the door has panels or “stile-and-rail”.

Its my first time spraying Airless, where do I start?

You can begin your paint spraying journey with an entry level sprayer such as the FARBMAX Airless M10 Plus or Graco GX 21.

For spraying trim, windows or doors, you may opt for a Graco GX FF or look at some of the air-assisted or HVLP models.

There are specialized Airless paint sprayers and general purpose sprayers, depending on the materials, job frequency and volume of material needed to be sprayed.
