Extension Poles

We’re starting off simple, and it’s more than likely you may already have extension poles for your rollers in your painting arsenal, but it is a must-have. Making those hard reach areas much more reachable via an extension pole is much easier than trying to position a ladder, especially if you’re working a hallway and staircase.

Must Have:  Purdy Powerlock Extension Pole


Heavy Duty Wipes

Sick of getting clumps of paint stuck to your hands? Having some heavy duty wipes to hand will help get rid of paint really easily without much scrubbing, and they’re always handy to wipe off any mishaps on surfaces you didn’t mean to get paint on.

Must-Have: Heavy Duty Big Wipes


Scotch Tape Dispenser


Preparation can be a pain and pretty time consuming so cutting down the prep time should be one of the top priorities. A scotch tape dispenser can really cut down the time spent protecting skirting and other fixtures from unwanted paint splatters.


ProDec Duragrip Scraper
