I framed a lot of houses and was able to be there when painters were workin on exterior quite often. when I asked about why a crew was backrolling, the responses made sense- no runs,drips,sags and more even coverage.

im thinkin ya might need a couple different tip sizes for the primer and paint, which the SW guy should be able to help ya chose them. as for fan pattern, you can go as wide as pissible, but ya still want to overlap each pass about 50%

id suggest doin some reading online for airless spraying techniques. its not that hard, but theres a few things that need to work together for good results.

hope yer planning on washing the brick beforehand.
