If you do any amount of painting, you’ve probably used or at least seen paint brushes, rollers and other paint products made by Purdy Corporation. For some reason, whenever I hear the word “Purdy”, I picture a lecherous hillbilly eye-balling the brush and telling me it’s “Purdy”. Insert Deliverance soundtrack here. Since the Purdy name is simply a family name, I think I’ll need to get over it. Despite my weird issues related to the name, I like Purdy paint products.
Not too long ago, I made the mistake of buying an off-brand roller cover (a big box store “special brand”), and it shed more than a Siberian Husky sprinting through Death Valley CA in late August. I don’t know about you, but I like my paint applied without it looking like a fuzzy animal got caught in the wet paint and died. Since then, I’ve stuck with Purdy’s rollers, which I find to be well made and less prone to mass-shedding.
One of Purdy’s most popular roller covers, the White Dove™ series, is billed as the “Industry’s Most Lint Free.” The White Dove rollers are for use with all paints and exterior stains, especially where a smooth, not-so-linty finish is desired. These rollers also use high density acrylic fiber, capable of carrying large quantity of paint for improved efficiency and productivity. Improved efficiency is music to my ears (just not Deliverance music), since most times I’m painting I hope to be done asap.
Purdy makes great brushes too, with a whole line-up of specialized bristles depending on what you’re doing. Check out Purdy paint brushes and rollers here, and you can find them at most major home improvement retailers and paint stores.
