Roller marks on walls

I just recently had my interior walls painted by a painter who came with very good references. I was disappointed to see that all the roller marks are visible on the wall. Can you tell me what causes this and how to get rid of them?

The most likely culprit for those marks was too much paint on the rollers. I suggest giving your painter a call and letting him know you’re less-than-thrilled with the final result. See if he’s willing to come by and take a look at it. That might be the easiest fix for you. If not, depending on how thick the marks are, you might have to have them sanded down with an orbital sander before you can do anything else. If they’re light enough, another coat of paint might make them disappear.
