    i am in the process of having a new double garage constructed which has a hipped roof constructed out of trusses.
    I plan on painting the interior of the roof including the trusses and sarking boards (I am in Scotland) white to brighten it up.

    Due to the limited space I was planning on using an airless sprayer, but I am unsure as to which type of paint would be best as it is a large area of wood.

    Would a cheap emulsion be suitable, or what else should I consider?

    Use BEDEC BARN PAINT. Self priming, self undercoating 2 coat finish. ;)

    If you spray, then you don’t really want to paint the sarking as it needs to be breathable.
