If you hate cleaning up between coats, or if the thought of disposable trays and rollers turns you green, then the SealPro might interest you. This sealable roller tray will keep your paint and roller from drying out for weeks.
The SealPro tray holds up to a gallon of paint, so you spend more time rolling and less time refilling the tray. An integrated magnet on the side of the tray holds a ferrous-ferruled brush, keeping it handy for cutting in. For those moments when you just have to stop painting for a few minutes, the tray lid also doubles as a roller holder.
When it comes time for storage, the roller sits in a special holder inside the tray. To keep both the paint and roller fresh, the SealPro top displaces 95% of the air in the tray and creates an airtight seal.
The SealPro runs about $30 at Amazon. Though it’s a little expensive for a roller tray, it might be worth the ability to start and stop painting without a lot of fuss.
