    Painters & Decorators

    Is it better to apply deck stripper with a roller or with a spray can product?

    "Hi June. You can use a roller but note with a roller some of the stripper may not get into the deck grooves and may not remove all of the paint. A brush would be more effective. Spray is also effective but you would need a lot more of it to cover the area you require."

    "A roller you can throw away after. Good even coverage. Wear gloves."

    "Roller is good and better because with the spray, unless your a professional you can’t always control where the spray is totally going to cover, unless you set too low pressure which will obviously take longer which nullifies the speed."

    "Preferably a brush. It will use less than a spray and it will cover better than a roller. It will get into the crevices a roller cannot"

    "Brush is more effective and it needs to be a dry day with temperature +10 and above. In a cold weather will not work properly."
