    Hello.
    I'm about to do first layers on my freshly painted extension. I'd really love some advice on what equipment to.buy.

    Firstly ceilings. I've got a large pitched, high ceiling with roof lights in in.
    The other is flat and lower
    Walls are just walls
    Exterior is smooth render (I've chosen duly weathershield).

    All brand new plaster/render so I want to make this good! It's just me and my ladder so I guess I need a pole? Is a big roller and tray better than a normal sized one? Any advice very greatfully received.

    Thankyou for reading

    Got high pitched ceilings, hire a access tower, easier to work from & safer.

    Get yourself a hvlp sprayer and some statically charged sheet with the tape on the edge

    What's 'some statically charged sheet with tape on the edge'?

    Is that mostly used with hvlp spraying preparation masking techniques as I have never heard of it?

    I’m not sure, I was looking for a charged dust sheet one day as I know they use such things on the automotive paining so I just stumbled upon it, I think it’s great the roll is about 5 inches thick but unfolds to about 1 meter

    I imagine there would be a risk that if you brushed your hair, the sheet could slide of the bed and wrap itself around your statically charged head.
