What does the paint roller thickness have to do with anything?

The general rule is that the smoother the surface is to be painted, the thinner your paint roller nap should be. If it is a perfectly smooth surface with no texture, a 1/4″ nap is ideal or a 3/8” works also. If you are painting a textured wall or another rough surface like brick or rough fencing, then a 1/2″ or 3/4″ thick nap works best.
