Why Seal Pro Painting Back-Rolls Exterior Paint Jobs!

Here, at Seal Pro Painting we love what we do, and we love to talk about it with others. We want friends and any potential customers to know what we do and why we do it. This week’s Pro Painting Topic is all about back-rolling. Let’s go over the breakdown of back-rolling and pro’s to using this method.

What is back-rolling?

Back-rolling is a technique commonly used in the painting industry when painting the exterior of a home or building. Back-rolling simply means that after the paint has been sprayed on, it is immediately rolled using a paint roller.


First, this method will help the paint penetrate into the surface of the home or building. In most cases the exterior of a home has a porous or grooved surface. When we back-roll, we ensure that the paint is being pushed into the grooves of the surface ensuring every inch is covered.

Second, back-rolling helps to ensure there is a good adhesion between the paint and the surface of the home. While pushing the paint into the grooves of the surface the roller is also helping to ensure maximum adhesion by firmly pressing the paint onto the surface creating an even layer of paint over the entire surface of the home.

What surface would we not back-roll?

A scenario where we would not back-roll would be a smooth surface like a metal door. A metal door has a smooth non-porous surface and back-rolling would create stippling. This would make the surface look textured where in most cases a metal door does not have a texture.

At Seal Pro Painting we back-roll all of our exterior jobs because we believe this method is a tried and true way to get the most years out of your exterior paint. With our commitment to excellence for the customer, we wouldn’t do it any other way.
