Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dedicated2HomeDepot Never ever again
I am dedicated Home Depot customer, make no mistake. I've been using 4" foam roller around my house for decades. Last week my last roller fell apart after 2 years of service and I did pay a visit to HD for a replacement. The current 4" roller with a high density foam was a worst roller I've ever used. 50% of the rolls were freely sliding off the holder, when I was choosing in a store. Found decent couple, started working. The holder fits into the roller's inserts too tight, with feelable friction. Instead of rolling, roll slides on the painting surface leaving the slid marks. The way the product was packed for sale did not let to try the rolling action on the nearest wall.
This roller was only one brand of 4" size available in the painting section. Got to shop somewhere else.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Cody Helpful But Not Great
I was painting my kitchen cabinets. I told the sales associate I didn't want roller marks. I was going for more of that factory sprayed look. She recommended this roller made for this application. The roller ended up pulling little dimples in the paint and leaving the roller lines. It was better than the orange peel look of a traditional roller but definitely not what I wanted. I then back brushed the rolled paint with a high quality Purdy brush. That gave me the smooth look I was going for. Moral of the story....you can apply the paint quickly with the roller but if you want the roller marks gone, back brush it with a quality brush.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JMH126 Good for small areas
The roller was good for the small paint area in our kitchen. I would not recommend it for any large areas.

Bought this roller for my side garage door. It leaves a textured -- NOT smooth -- finish. Not good for doors! At least it actually rolled, unlike another Linzer roller I tried.

Great to use on smooth surfaces. doors, walls, finished and sanded wood.
Definitely worth recommending for easy applying paint. Better than any brush I've used.
