Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by zewkini Perfect For Knockdown Texture
After getting frustrated trying to match a repaired area on my knockdown ceiling texture, I tried this. It worked perfectly for this task, which is why I gave it a high rating.

It lasted about 100 sq ft and then started to come apart. I had to pick pieces of the roller out of my deck!

This roller is not good for wood deck that has been there for a while! I would only use on new boards and smooth concrete!
NOT for a restore project...

The roller started to fall apart towards the end of the job. Better purchase more that one for large jobs. It fits nicely in the barrel of restore so you don't have to use a paint tray.

These work good to give the restore a non-slick serface

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tygra Works great for adding texture
This works great for adding the required texture. It can get a little messy because of the large holes in the roller, but that is to be expected given the rough texture.
I'm not sure about the reviews stating that the roller wears down. I've had really good luck with mine. I've used this brush to texture real concrete and it made it through 4000lbs of concrete okay, plus an additional 4 planter boxes done with the restore paint after that (and my roller is still fine). I do wash it after every use.
I think the key is to reducing the little splashes is to put on a heavy coat of the restore with a paint brush, then just lightly roll over the area with the roller for the desired texture.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Carol Great when used with the grate purchased separately.
This 9" roller, as well as the 4", work great when used with the grate kit. The grate kit comes with 2 4" rollers and is definitely worth it. It eliminates any spattering. The picture for the grate shows it attached to a big 4 gallon bucket of the product, but I just put it on my paint tray. I dipped the roller in the product and then rolled it on the grate to remove excess. Yes, the roller does eventually fall apart. Just have extras on hand. I like just throwing it out instead of cleaning it. I replaced the roller after about 3 gallons of deck Restore. I thought that was acceptable. They might be a little pricey, but they definitely worth it to me. If you use the 4", just roll it down the middle and then roll on each side. It provides full coverage without the drip in between deck boards that the 9" causes.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Decked Better Off Using A Paint Brush
Soaked up product. Wasted a gallon of Restore. Went back to Home Depot to buy another gallon and a 4 inch brush. Was told that the roller should only be used if you want a textured surface. Uses a lot more product than a brush. Finished covering 3x's the area with 1 gallon of Restore, using a paint brush! Which also is easier to get into cracks and crevices.
