Trimming Roller Covers for Performance

It seems like no matter what the product is that comes my way I end up tweaking it in some way to make it better to get more out of the product.

These white woven covers are not top of the line quality but the price is right but they need trimmed before use.

I do not have a before photo at the moment but here is the after photo. I use scissors to snip a nice bevel around the cover. I snip way back. One of the guys on the job grabbed my loaded roller to roll something and when he brought it back he said “that's a nice cover, what kind is it”? Funny, my answer was, “the same covers you guys have been using for years, I cut a new bevel on it”.
