In an occupied house, rolling is the way to go. Few pros will attempt to spray when the house is full of stuff that will inevitably get overspray on it without tediously completely sealing it off.

In new construction, spraying is the norm.

In a unoccupied repaint, I think it's kind of a wash; depends on what needs to be done.

FYI, is probably the forum to be for business-starting questions.

Painting new construction it is almost imperative to have an airless - in order to be competive. Most other types of painting, an airless should be farther down the list of needed equipment. Plenty of drop cloths, brushes, ladders, etc. should come first. Establish your business and then see if you have need of spray equipment and what type.

occupied re-paints, mostly brush'n'roll
