Hi Guys, Thanks for this opportunity. I am finishing my home and am at the painting stage. I have an spraytech airless sprayer which has been an amazing investment for past jobs. I have a question on painting newly installed drywall. I have applied the first coat of primer and have back rolled the whole first coat. In the past I would typically roll the job but with this sprayer I am thinking that I can just spray the ceiling with out back rolling. The drywall is new and the spacklers did a great job and this first coat looks great. Your adivce is most appreciated.
Thanks
Joe

Why didn't you just mix paint with the texture?

Heck most new houses only have 1 coat on them here.

But, hey I am not in the new const. biz, I do repaints.

I personally would spray and backroll the finish coat.
Roll towards the entry door and the brightest window. All one way, all parallel to a wall (hides any tails that the backroller may leave)
