There are different length bristles for different surfaces. Half inch bristles work well on smooth surfaces. The short bristles don’t provide any extra unwanted texture. Meanwhile, 3/8 inch bristles work well on semi-rough surfaces. The larger fibers are ideal for getting in textured indentations in the wall. Lastly, one inch bristles are great for painting walls with a lot of texture. A perfect example of this would be popcorn walls or ceilings. The long bristles are able to easily reach into the crevices and provide a clean paint as you roll the paint onto the wall.

When you begin painting, make sure to fully submerge the roller in the paint. This will make sure that the paint goes on evenly. Also make sure to start painting from the bottom up.
