There are so many variables in painting. From quality of paint to the humidity level. I had painted our house with a roller. The air was too dry, letting it dry fast. It gave a streaky paint job. If I would do it again, I would get a sprayer. I think it would be easier to get a smoother finish.

You will never get the penetration with a brush that 35-40 lbs of pressure with a sprayer gives you. Having said that, a brush and roller are more forgiving of poor prep.
