The edger works wonders holding the brush the exact distance from the edge, making sure you get razor-sharp edges, time after time.

The company's specially-designed shield is able to keep the paint from getting on the trim/ceiling.

CONS

You'll have to apply extra force to keep the edger adjoined to the wall.

Accubrush MX 11 piece Jumbo kit

Less Tedious Work with Accubrush Paint Edger

Accubrush MX 11-piece jumbo kit packs just about everything you need for residential painting works. The package works wonders reducing the time spent applying the masking tape.

You'll be able to quickly and effortlessly cut in a 4-inch wide band of paint along the edge of any wall. You'll have no issues edging from 5 to 8 feet between reloading the roller.

Compared to dealing with just about any paint pad, the company's rollers deliver rolled texture all the way to your walls' edges.

You'll be able to feather out the edge of the band to avoid the usual "picture framing" issue or a thick band of paint around the edge of the wall.

The brushes, on the other hand, are able to provide the sharpest, most precise cut-in line. You won't have to load the brush with paint. The edger works wonders holding the brush the exact distance from the edge, making sure you get razor-sharp edges, time after time.

Plus, the brush is adjustable (in and out), making it possible to work with textured walls, including but not limited to orange peel and knockdown textures.

Last but not least, the company's specially-designed shield is able to keep the paint from getting on the trim/ceiling. The shield lets you paint a sizable room before having to clean paint off that shield.

In short, Accubrush MX 11-piece jumbo kit presents the best deal for painting contractors on the list. The kit lets you paint 10-20 times faster compared to the usual sash brush approach. Painters with very little or no experience at all will be able to paint consistent, straight edges with no paint on the trim.

HomeRight C800771

Nice and Clean

HomeRight C800771 keeps things quick and simple. The tool will let you quickly and cleanly paint edges around baseboards, window trim, doors, and ceilings. The model's build is surprisingly robust and its overall design is very well-thought-out.

The durable handle is able to hold up to 4.5 ounces of material. You'll have no issues painting up to 50 feet of wall space per single fill. Just press the trigger and draw the small yellow handle back to draw the material directly into the main handle from the paint can.

Other than that, the model's built-in edging guide is probably its biggest strength. At the same time, it is also the applicator's pad convex design that enables precise paint application along any edge.

The corner pad attachment (sold separately) will let you paint the trickiest corners with ease and finesse.

The locking pad head is able to rotate to four painting positions, providing a comfortable grip at any angle.

Finally, the model lets you remove the pad attachment and save the unused paint by triggering it back into the can.

In conclusion, HomeRight C800771 is a paint edger tool that is easy to fill and maneuver. It is able to hold paint in the handle. The model lets you control your paint flow. It offers precise application and allows you to replace unused paint. In other words, arguably the best paint edger on the list from the practicality perspective.

Shur-Line 500ZS

Ceilings Too

As you can probably tell, Shur-Line 500ZS is a little different. The model's square/rectangular design has its upsides as well as its flaws. As far as we're concerned, the biggest flaw is that the wheels collect paint.

At the same time, there are multiple advantages to its design. It is able to attach to threaded extension poles, making it possible to paint the ceiling without using ladders.

The pivoting/swiveling mechanism allows for constant, even application. It also provides greater comfort.

The aforementioned guide wheels are far from pointless too. These things allow the tool to deliver a straight, clean edge along any ceiling, window, door, chair rail, baseboard, etc.

All in all, the model allows for clean trimming around windows, doors, moldings, and cabinets. The woven pad is massive. It is able to assure straight and smooth lines along any surface.

There isn't much to add here. The model's plastic composition looks a little flimsy but it is surprisingly durable. Its 5.75-inch painting width lets you cover larger areas, delivering faster project times.

People with very little painting experience might benefit from doing the edging in the more awkward spots without paint before actually using it. The model has a relatively steep learning curve but you'll definitely get there.

Wagner 0530000B SMART

Reach Any Corner

Wagner Spraytech 0530000B is able to make preparation work easier and about as enjoyable as it can be by eliminating hours of taping and cut-ins. The model's 3-inch roller is able to cover a decent-enough area. It is easy to load and, according to the people behind the product, easy to clean.

Having said that, it really isn't always that easy to clean. We would recommend taking the cleaning instructions one step further to make sure you're able to fully clean the model's "tank".

The tool's overall design is pretty awesome though. The Lock-n-Roll™ connector lets you easily change the angle and reach just about any area. You'll have no issues painting behind bathtubs and kitchen cabinets. The twist-and-trim mechanism works wonders delivering sharp clean edges. The built-in thumb trigger allows for controlled and precise paint delivery.

The model's integrated paint reservoir is there to eliminate any and all need for a paint tray. Last but not least, that reservoir is able to hold up to 6 fl. oz. of paint and cover up to 96 linear feet in one fill.

To sum it all up, Wagner Spraytech 0530000B is able to streamline the overall painting process/progress. The model is as effective and efficient as it is practical and easy to use. There isn't a corner you won't be able to reach. As far as we're concerned, this is the best paint edger here for tackling hard-to-reach corners.

Mr. LongArm 0470

Gets the Job Done

Mr. LongArm 0470 is pretty basic compared to every other model on this list. At the same time, it beats sash brushes any day of the week. Plus, as you would imagine, it is much more affordable too. Sure, the model doesn't feature our best pick's functionality/utility but it costs much, much less too. Plus, it isn't like this affordable product doesn't have anything going for it.

The handle that can be attached to threaded extension poles is a really nice touch. You'll be able to paint ceilings without a ladder. It incorporates very light but noticeable non-slip texture that gives you a firm but relatively comfortable grip.

Plus, the handle is also angle-adjustable, so you'll be able to tackle hard-to-reach corners with ease and poise. It can be a little hard to maneuver at first. But you'll likely be able to get there in no time at all.

The model's horizontal and vertical guide wheels are absolutely worth mentioning too. A relatively small detail, these wheels ensure sharp clean lines and keep the paint off baseboards. The fact that the foam pad is replaceable is always a plus too.

In other words, Mr. LongArm 0470 is the best budget deal in this lineup. The model excels at doing more with less. Plus, the foam pad is surprisingly durable and long-lasting.

What Is a Paint Edger?

Paint edgers run circles around sash brushes. As you would imagine, these tools are a little more expensive. At the same time, they let you trim ceilings, baseboards, windows, doors, and molding. These edgers deliver razor-sharp lines and allow you to avoid drips more than you would with most painting methods. The best models are able to reduce prep work by eliminating hours of taping and cut-ins. They're perfect for interior painting.

There are many little details between these "best models" and the products' inferior counterparts though. Sometimes, the former tools feature specially-designed shields that keep the paint from getting on the trim/ceiling. These shields let you paint a sizable room before having to clean paint off the shield.

Paint reservoirs built into the handle is another little detail that separates high-end edgers from budget models. For example, a handle that is able to hold up to 4.5 ounces of paint will let you cover up to 50 feet of wall space per single fill.

Other than that, it is the little details like handles that you can attach to threaded extension poles, built-in guide wheels, replaceable pads, etc.

Paint sprayers work great with paint edgers. In a different way, so do garage cabinets.
