Default Paint overspray prevention?

Perce,

We do it all the time. If I have any concerns I have my helper stand about
15 or 20 feet away and watch which way the over spray is going during the
first few blasts of the gun. You can also turn down the pressure and buy a
tip that has a lower out put of paint to minimize over spray.

If your neighbors house is a single story you might buy a roll of very thin
plastic sheeting that comes in 9' wide by either 400' or 600' lengths for
$15 to $20 bucks. Use blue painters tape and cover the side of their house.
The plastic comes in a red and white box at HD or Lowe's.

Always have the hose nearby.

Painters do this every day. The nay sayers are just wrong.

Magnums are great pumps for the money. After cleaning run a mixture of
automotive anti freeze and water thru the pump and gun to lubricate and
prevent the innards from rusting.

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.

And painters are insured against such claims...well, they're suppose to
be.

I have never met a painter who has had to file an insurance claim for their
overspray.

I guess the painters you know are real and experienced painters that take
all necessary precautions. Still, I bet they have a general coverage
policy.

It's so unfortunate that 5 years ago, cm died in a paint explosion. He is survived by a wife, 19 children and 673 gerbils. The gerbils really miss him. 8-(
