Answer: 
The rougher the surface, the thicker the nap
The smoother surface, the thinner the nap
Most drywall applications use a 3/8in nap but you can go from 1/4in to 1/2in. Some may even use a 3/4in but only with flat paints. Going to this high of a nap will leave more stipple (roller marks) on your walls.

Answer: 
The best way to determine the paint roller cover needed is by reading the packaging and the surfaces recommended for that particular roller cover. However, in general, heavier knap roller covers are used for textured surfaces on celings and walls. Smooth surfaces are best painted with a low to mediam knap roller cover.

Answer: 
I am assuming that you are asking what knapp do you need. If that is the case, it depends upon the surface of the walls/ceiling that you are painting. Once you determine that the rollers generally state on the label which wall surfaces they work best on.

The surface texture, its porosity or roughness, determine the required pile thickness. For rough surfaces thicker pile is required so the paint can fill the pores. Deep pores may still need a brush to fill the pore. Short piles ( 1/4 - 3/8") fit smooth surfaces and will yeild a smoother paint texture or less stipple or "orange peel".

If you are not a professional you should ask the seller for advice on your needs. Basically, the thinner the cover the smoother the Finnish will be when completed, and the smother the Finnish the thinner the cover you use will be. For finer finishes use a thin cover and a quality one. as the texture becomes more bumpy and or porous the thicker the cover, You will find that a 3/8 inch cover works for 95% Read More

For finer finishes use a thin cover and a quality one. as the texture becomes more bumpy and or porous the thicker the cover, You will find that a 3/8 inch cover works for 95% of the painting you will do, even on the smooth surfaces like doors and smooth wall. I never go thicker than 3/4 inch and even then I don't like to use them. I use a 3/8 inch cover for everything with little exception. Read Less

Answer: 
Coverage is determined by the type of surface you intend to cover. For inside flat smooth walls use a smooth roller cover for deep stucco outer walls use a deep thick roller cover. Let the paint do the work, spread it evenly and your all good.

Answer: 
The thickness is based on the material you are using as well as the texture of the wall. heavier textures require a larger nap while smooth surfaces work well with a shorter nap.

Answer: 
Depending on how rough or course the surface is that you are going to paint will determine the thickness of nap on roller. For example, smooth drywall; you would use 3/8" nap roller sleeve and for rough wood surface; you may need 1/2" nap roller sleeve.

Answer: 
The general rule is "the rougher the surface, the thicker the nap; the smoother the surface, the shorter the nap." Nap is referring to the thickness of the roller fabric. For normal drywall, 3/8" nap is the most popular size. You can also refer to the packaging for surface recommendations.

Answer: 
For most decks, you should use at least a 1/2in nap roller but the preferred would be a 3/4in nap. The product you have listed here is too thin to cover an uneven surface like a wood deck. Knit or microfiber would both be good fabric choices. Thanks,

9 in. x 3/8 in. High-Density Polyester Roller Cover (3-Pack) is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 245.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lint! Sheds like crazy Noticed little pieces of lint all over the walls I had just painted. All over! Realized the brush sheds like crazy. I took the unused one and pulled gently on it and the fibers just came off. Really frustrated. Purchased a non HD brand that was a little more, but worth the price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Coverage. Waste of money The entire time I was using these rollers I kept saying that I hated them. We went through so much paint because these rollers absorb so much without putting hardly any paint on the walls. I can't even finish my project with these. Waste of money on rollers and on paint.
Date published: 2016-11-26
Rated 1 out of 5 by from started falling apart on a small job I have used dozens of these rollers over the last few years. They have always worked fine until my last painting project. The roller started shedding it's fibers while painting a cream colored paint. This made them pretty much camouflaged until the paint dried. It was only a hallway that I was painting, but there is thousands of fibers sticking out of the paint now. What do I do now? Spend how many days trying to sand them out of the paint? Who the heck has time for that? This issue has made me extremely unhappy with this product that had always worked well in the past.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good if prepped I've used these rollers for years. They are a good nap, and work well. The key is to "prep" them, so you won't get fuzz on the surface. First, put the roller on the handle. then make an "okay" sign and run the circle created by your thumb and forefinger along the roller a few times. This will get a lot of loose fuzz off. Next, go to the bathroom and run the roller under the tub faucet, like you're cleaning the roller.. Lastly, spin the roller along the back wall of the tub a few times to get most of the water out. Now the roller is primed and you're ready to paint. Don't worry that the roller is a little wet, as long as it's not dripping, you're fine.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent Product If you're looking for disposable roller covers, these do the trick. I ended up buying the 1/2" nap because my walls have texture and these covers asked for just a little more effort because of the shorter nap. They are very good in the no-shed department. However, one of the rollers was a little out-of-round, which made it hard to produce consistent coverage.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value I've used these roller covers several times, and they hold up pretty good without sliding off the roller while I paint. I never clean them, at that price I can just throw them away after use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Purchase Great purchase for the remodeling person. You will need to do at least 3 coats (primer and 2 of the color) for each room. We have 5 rooms and lots of color. These are great.
Date published: 2016-02-23
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fuzzy Meh. Without jumping through hoops to prep these you'll end up with a wall textured with roller lint. Spend a few extra dollars and you won't have this issue.
