10 Mind-blowing Paint Zooms to Go For


10 Mind-blowing Paint Zooms to Go For

Did you know that about 10% of the paint we buy is eventually thrown out, and that a majority of the paint is for residential use? Well, in a typical set up such as the US, that’s about 60 million gallons of paint down the drain. But, thanks to this zoom paint review, you will learn a thing or two about reducing the wastage among other things.

Painting surfaces could be daunting especially without a paint sprayer which significantly reduces your work and of course, offers a charming look of the painted surface.

Adding colour to the world with paint is a unique human activity—one that dates back in time. For this and among other reasons, it’s fundamentally wrong not to do it right or maybe, not using the right equipment.

Let’s get down to a bit of history… Spraying paint traces back to the early 1880s. Joseph Binks, a supervisor at Marshall Field’s Wholesale Store developed the first hand pumped cold-water paint sprayer machine for paint surfaces in the sub-basement walls.

Later on, Francis Davis Miller adopted Bink’s technology to paint at the Exposition—taking considerably less time to paint.

In 1949, one Edward Seymour developed a kind of spray paint called aerosol. The paint could easily be made available in a can using a compressed aerosol. On and on went the developments till we came to the current painters.

Before I have you doze off from tons of historical events—I’ll dive right into the things to look out for when shopping for a great paint zoom paint sprayer. The features may not apply to all spraying machines but just to be safe than sorry, keep the following in mind when shopping for one.

Features


1. Storage hook—a good painter comes with its storage compartment. This will save you a lot of time and a likely mismatch when getting one separately due to the numerous brands out in the market. Consequently, if the storage hook is not included in the price of the painter, try getting it from the same seller to avoid incompatibility issues.

2. The capacity—if a sprayer has a storage capacity of less than 800ml, you might consider going for a higher one. This saves you refilling time—I’d imagine climbing that ladder every fifteen or so minutes to have a refill; not cool, right?

3. No Spills or drips—one of the main reason why most painters are shying away from traditional painting methods is neatness. A great place to start this would be getting a paint sprayer that is dripless. How exactly will you know this? Get the seller to test it for you using a medium such as water before buying. You might also want to ensure its storage lid tightens up well.

4. Paint coverage—as much as you may love painting, you wouldn’t mind saving time, would you? With a sprayer that has a wider coverage area, you will be able to paint a wider area in lesser time.

5. Light and portable—most paint sprays are light but there’s no harm in shopping around for the lightest. The weight matters especially if you plan on painting wider surfaces which may require long hours of lifting the spray. Portability, on the other hand, can’t be substituted when it comes to painting.

6. One-piece design—a perfect paint zoom is an improved one-piece model that suits the current painting needs. If you don’t do complicated, you might want to go for such features in a paint spray.

7. Multi-directional nozzle—the spraying nozzle has to be tiltable to give room for proper adjustments whenever needed. This capability makes it adaptable to smaller or cornered working areas.

8. Versatility—a good paint sprayer should be able to work with Colron Danish oil, Timbercare, Acrylic paint, Bug clear pesticide, Vanish, Wood primer and Undercoat, Vinyl matt paint, Decking Cleaner and Restorer among others.

9. Sturdy—the spray should be highly robust to the extent of using it for a long time with little or no maintenance. The process of maintaining a Top Rated paint zoom could not only be expensive but also tedious—imagine how hard it could be to get parts of something you may have bought miles away through Amazon or eBay.

10. Superior painting—the whole essence of getting a paint zoom is so you can have great and professional finishes—no one wants to settle for any less. This might be impractical to determine especially if you intend to buy online. However, checking for reviews about the product could be your best bet—so be sure to make some good use of this one; it could be the only thing standing between you and a good paint sprayer.

If these features are taken into account—you’ll certainly learn a trick or two before you make your purchase.

Just before the reviews, here are a few pros and cons of paint sprayers to always look out for.

Pros


  • Even coating—so, you’re done painting for a whole morning and on looking at where you started; oops…you missed coating alignment somewhere. Thanks to paint sprayers, the paint particles form a fine mist—covering the surface more proportionately as compared to rollers.
  • Speed—this is undisputable about the sprays. They save on time and come to think of it—it could be fun and with fun; time flies.
  • Variety—the paint sprayers come in different shapes and sizes to meet your painting needs with the most common being airless and air models. For whatever project you undertake, go for the best your money can ever afford you.
  • Superior finishing—we all agree that a surface painted with a paint roller and a sprayer could be distinguished miles away, don’t we? The sprayer blends proportionality with efficiency to produce one fine paint spray that stands out on any surface.
  • Less material usage—sprayers, especially the airless ones, atomize the paint automatically reducing overspray.

Cons


  • Surfaces painted using sprayers have been found to be less lasting as compared to roll brushed surfaces—that’s why most painters prefer to go through spray paint with a roller or brush to make it longer lasting.
  • If you needed to paint using a spray on a windy day, you can only imagine how messy it could get.
  • Apparently, the sprayer system uses up more paint… any painters in the house to confirm this?

Tip: Try as much as possible to get a hold of both the roller and the sprays—they seem to complement each other well enough to want to own both.

At this point, you know exactly what to look out for in a sprayer, don’t you? Well then, let’s now get a little bit more specific, shall we?

What we love

I could overlook all other features of this sprayer but not the fact that it comes with two simple guides and weighs 10 pounds only—not so typical of Graco products.

Who it’s for

This sprayer is for anyone looking for a paperweight painter that has been tested by a good number of people.

With these 10 reviews, you can now paint like a Pro having made sound buying decisions.

Final Word…


As much as using paint brushes or rollers suck, believe it or not, this Paint Zoom Reviews won’t hide from you the fact that these sprayers could be a pain in the ass if not properly used. The sprayers shoot paint hard enough to penetrate your skin.

A protective gear, a long sleeved shirt, a respirator, gloves, and goggles must be worn whenever painting.

Otherwise happy painting folks…
