I had some painting and waterproofing to do at my house, so I purchased a few Work Force brushes to help me with my work. One brush was a four inch size for applying stains, about $7.97 in cost. The other brush was 1.5 inches for painting small areas, about $4.97 in cost. I didn't want to pay too high a price for brushes, and the prices for these Work Force brushes seemed pretty economical.
I used the larger brush for applying waterproofer to my wooden gates, and the smaller brush did the painting of the window sill and woodwork in my bathroom (well, I did the painting, but the brush helped). These brushes actually did a pretty good job. I was afraid I would have to worry about loose bristles while I was working, but I think that happened only once or twice. The brushes cleaned up very well and can be used again. They came in little see-through plastic protective coverings, and for a cheaper brush, I was pleasantly surprised at how easy they were to use.
If I need to purchase more brushes, I will most likely use Work Force brushes for the job.
