Professional Tool Reviews for Pros

Painting Tool Reviews

When you think of painting tool reviews you naturally come to airless sprayers. While that’s a core tool in this segment there are also drywall sanders, ladders, hoses, and other products. We checked out the Werner PD6210-4C fiberglass podium ladder as well as the Stanley Fatmax Professional Grade water hose. These tools help round out any painting professional’s tool set. Painting Tool Reviews for Pros We’ve covered tools like the Titan Impact 640 airless sprayer as well as materials like Behr Premium Plus Ultra paint. Cordless sprayers are also tested to see if they might serve well for fine finish work. As for airless sprayers, we test full systems as well as spray guns that claim to improve ergonomics on the job. As with any job that can interact with dangerous materials, lead paint topics will also fall under this category. Our painting tool reviews help you understand which tools are Pro and which are more consumer-based products.
