Review Summary

What’s not to like about the HomeRight Finish Max? This spray gun is easy to use, lightweight, and it produces a result that will allow even beginners to enjoy high-caliber, do it yourself finishes.

HomeRight, for those that do not already know, is in the business of making budget friendly sprayers that are suitable for the beginner. While you probably are not going to want to use this tool if you are a pro, or even if you have been around the block a few times, it’s a great entryway into the world of spraying.

Now, given the price tag, you probably won’t be surprised to learn that this tool is not without flaws.

It is not extremely powerful, which means that you are going to need to over-thin latex paints, and it also clogs pretty easily, which may mean that you will need to stop mid-session to mitigate the issue.

There are definitely tradeoffs, but that comes with the territory when you buy a tool in this price range. Is it worth dealing with the cons to get a good sprayer at a great price? Decide for yourself as we now dive into our review.

Affordable: Great for the Beginner:

It is debatable whether or not the price of a tool can actually be counted as a feature. However, the affordability factor of the HomeRight Finish Max is definitely worth expanding upon a little bit.

Most paint sprayers cost several hundred dollars. And that is a good price. If you shop for a pro caliber unit, the price tag can reach the thousand dollar region.

The ability to use a paint sprayer while spending only a small fraction of the typical cost is a feature that most people will appreciate. Like we said in the introduction, this is not the tool that you go with if you are a professional painter, or even an experienced do it yourselfer.

This is a gateway tool that will let you tackle small projects at an affordable price.

The cost of this tool definitely makes it an inviting option for people that want to dip their toes into the waters of do it yourself painting.

Lightweight Design: Good For Long Hours on the Job:

The HomeRight only weighs several pounds. The lightweight design of the tool makes it a good option for anyone that has a lengthy project on their hands.

While you don’t often think of getting fatigued while using a paint sprayer, the idea is not as ridiculous as it might sound. Many projects, like painting a deck, can take all day to complete.

Long hours at work can be exhausting if your equipment trends on the heavier side.

That isn’t an issue with this sprayer. The remarkably light gun is going to allow users to comfortably operate the tool for hours on end without experiencing exhaustion or fatigue.

Adjustable Paint Flow: Good for Complete Control:

Lastly, the HomeRight Finish Max also features a nob for adjusting the paint flow of your sprayer. The benefits of this feature are straightforward.

The more control that you have over your paint flow, the better you will be able to customize the approach you take to your work.

You can adjust the spray pattern so that it comes out vertical, horizontal, or circular.

FAQ

Is this sprayer loud?

Nope! The HomeRight Finish Max is not the most powerful sprayer on the market. While there are obvious cons to that, the benefit is that it won’t be as noisy as some of the more powerful options out there. Even if you have sensitive ears, you should have no problem using the HomeRight Finish Max.

Can you use this product for bigger projects? Like painting a house?

You wouldn’t want to try to paint the exterior of a house with this product. HVLP sprayers are designed to produce refined finishes on smaller workpieces, like furniture, or even a deck.

Is this sprayer durable?

Durable enough. Sprayers won’t usually get beat up during the course of the working day. However, if you do run into some jobsite wear and tear, you shouldn’t have much of a problem.

What the Users Say

User reception to the HomeRight Finish Max is pretty mixed. That’s usually the result that you get with sprayers in this price range.

The people with positive things to say about the sprayer are usually beginners. Users that are new to painting generally appreciate the fact that this tool is easy to understand, lightweight, and of course, affordable.

It’s the users that already have a little bit of experience that bump into problems. We have heard from many experienced painters that say they have to thin their latex points much more than usual with this sprayer.

Thinning paint isn’t usually bad, but after a certain point, it can affect the quality of the finish, which is certainly something to look out for.

We have also heard a good deal of complaints regarding the sprayer’s tendency to clog. This also is to be expected.

Even high-end sprayers are often overly prone to clogging. It is the biggest downside to using a spray system over the traditional brush and roller.

Still, many users are seeing it happen a lot here, which they aren’t crazy about.

Potential buyers will have to decide for themselves if the pros outweigh the cons with this tool.

Conclusion

Is the HomeRight Finish Max perfect? Nope. It wasn’t really even made to be perfect. This is an entry-level tool. Errors come with the territory.

The fact of the matter is that for a budget tool, you get a lot of quality. This sprayer won’t stand toe to toe with the higher end units, but it was never meant to.

Our thoughts are that for the beginner, it would be hard to find a sprayer more suitable for your needs than the HomeRight Finish Max.

The friendly price tag, and the easy to use interface make it a great sprayer for the blossoming painter.
