Default Paint overspray prevention?


"Percival P. Cassidy" wrote in message
...
I have not so far used my Magnum paint sprayer, but when my wife mentioned
to our neighbor that I was planning to use it to paint our wood siding, she
(the neighbor) expressed great concern that the overspray would pollute
their new-last-year vinyl siding. Our end walls face each other about 20ft
apart.

I am planning to practice first on our shed, which is well away from their
house, but are there any general tips for preventing overspray? --
apart from the obvious warning not to spray when the wind is blowing in
their direction. I'll be using latex paints, if that makes a difference.

20 ft apart ??? FORGET IT...Unless you'ld like to buy your neighbor new
siding....With neighbors that close you can forget about any outside
spraying..You'll be paying for car damage as well as new siding...

Would wetting down the neighbors house before you start spraying
help???

Even with an airless sprayer?

So who uses these sprayers that are on sale "everywhere" if they are
unsuitable for use in ordinary subdivisions?

Twenty feet apart isn't an ordinary subdivision, it is a ghetto

I may have underestimated the 20ft somewhat. It's no ghetto (our lot is
almost 3/8 acre, the neighbor's a little less), but each of these two
houses has been built with the garage end not far from the property
line. On the other end of our house, where a living area faces the
neighbor's living area, the separation is greater.

20 feet is typical for anything but a McMansion subdivision, and even
some of those place the houses very close on tiny lots, for yuppies that
don't care to be bothered with much lawn upkeep. On old urban lots, a 10
foot side yard would be considered a fancy extra-large lot. On real old
urban lots with alleys, less than 10 feet between houses was quite common.

(looks out window) In this semi-rural 1960 sub, distance from my garage
to neighbor seems to be about 25 feet. Used to be further, but previous
owner added a 2-car garage with family room behind, and buried the old
1-car garage in the basement. (Wish there was a cheap way to un-bury it.
It would make a good woodshop if it had an outside entrance.)
