http://www.elegantpainting.com/importance-of-back-rolling/ ELEGANT PAINTING is one of very few painting
companies in the puget sound area to back-roll the entire siding. While other companies use sprayers to get
the job done quicker, Back-rolling (or back-brushing) the siding is the most efficient application
method recommended by all exterior paint manufacturers. Spray machines lay the paint on top of the
surface, allowing the coat to dry and trap millions of microscopic air pockets underneath.
 As  paint ages,  the resin oils that bond the pigments together begin to weaken.  When
exposed to high temperatures, the trapped air expands  and causes the premature failure
of the entire paint-job in the form of bubbles, cracks, peeling, and chipping. Back-rolling increases adhesion by forcing
the paint into the grain and pushing out the air that would otherwise be trapped in the
texture.  This method adds an additional 4-5 years to the life of our already durable
paint-job. While some painting companies claim to achieve
the same cosmetic effect with a sprayer, back-rolled coats will always have superior durability.
 Paint that has been rubbed on the surface will always have better adhesion compared
to material that has simply been blown at the surface with a spray machine. We use spray machines to deliver the paint
from the bucket to the siding, while a roller spreads the material and works it into the
grain.  The sprayer is simply there to prevent the roller from having to be dipped in the
bucket every few seconds. We also use premium fine finish sprayers on front doors and interior
trim. ELEGANT PAINTING®
