Painting & Decorating Question

Spray vs roller painting


I have just had my whole house replastered and people have told me to use either of the above methods for decorating.

I have been advised that the spray method is much simpler for the person painting my home, but the downside is that it could peal compared to the traditional roller which will move the new plaster around and soak in the 2 or 3 coats of paint better.

Cost seems to be similar but that doesnt answer the question on which is best for me. The last thing i want is my new paint to peel off the new walls. I prefer the spray method so there is less mess.

Please help.
