A paint roller is a tool used for painting. It consists of a cylindrical roll of absorbent material, such as fabric, that is covered with paint. The roller is then rolled over a surface to apply the paint. Paint rollers are often used to paint walls and ceilings.

Paint rollers come in a variety of sizes, depending on the size of the surface to be painted. They can also be found in different materials, such as foam or microfiber. Paint rollers can be purchased at most hardware stores or home improvement stores.

Why use a paint roller?

Paint rollers offer a number of advantages over traditional paint brushes. Paint rollers are less likely to leave brush strokes, and they can cover large areas more quickly than a brush. Paint rollers are also less likely to drip or splatter paint, making them ideal for painting ceilings.
