what to buy for painting.......

rbiggMarch 21, 2011

I have zip knowledge of what I'm asking.

I'd like to know of maybe two or three things (brands/models) I can find in pawnshops or craigslist that will give me the capability of painting my house, and huge deck. I have no idea of prices these gadgets will bring. Suggestions welcome

I will do pieces of it at a time. No big deal.

What I'd like to have is the thing that I can put extensions on (6'), and paint pretty good swaths with it. I think one thing I'll use is oil base stains for the deck, and maybe latex for the house.

Your thought will be welcome....

On option would be Wagner power painters. They come in several sizes, I just painted my house last summer in 6 hours using 7 gallons of paint. I put it on extra thick. The one I got had 25 foot hose and two gallon hopper on the top. Start out price around $200 plus bucks or may find them cheaper on Ebay new in the box.

A word to the wise: Paint house first/ deck second!
Over-spray is hard to control, especially if any wind. Move or cover cars, or anything you don't intend to paint! Cover windows/doors! Wear paint mask! Not those little white paper masks!

I have 2 of the Wagner wide area painters. 1 has a backpack container which is great for house painting. Honestly, when I bought it- I thought it would be one of those tools I'd use to paint the house and toss because it would be junk when I was done. But no, it painted a 2 story house + 3 out buildings, several other projects. Not as temperamental as i expected after seeing all the problems my BIL has w/ his pro air sprayer. Keeping any sprayer clean seems to be the key. I bought a second refurbished as I had to spray a tie coat which had to be followed up with a top coat quick and in a hurray before the 1st coat dried. You can get different nozzles for different applications.
