Default parking garage

Doing one today, a basement one. About 115 stalls. Im going to try the tarpaper trick I read about a few months ago. Block filler, and latex topcoat.

My question is what size tip n pressure? I have had issues before with overspray floating out past the drop/tarp/rosin and leaving a silhouette. .. im thinking lower pressure with a 4/523 for topcoat? 533 for filler?

Bryce Man U use some big tips. I noticed before.

.19 is about the biggest we use for finish. A .519 would b what I would go with. All the way up though. The first 50 gal goes a little slow till it loosens up. Then it is Kool.

It's been a while since I used the thick conventional type block filler. Lately we've been using the looser paint like kind. A worn out .519'is fine with that. The thick block filler I used to use a .635 or so with no filters. Been a while.

If u never used it. The block fill/finish is my favorite. Two coats of that and ur golden. If it was my call I'd go with the block fill/finish all the time. Must be pricey. I don't know. But it's real easy to put on. It looks good as anything. And you get the color on with the first coat. Good stuff.

Tar paper works great, you make have to adjust your spray style to not get air underneath it. 30lb felt works best being heavier. Not much help on the products you are using.

Used a 531 for heavy block filler. Had an awesome day, got on about 180 gallons an we were just masking the first 3 hours. Two of us, shielded the 9-10' ceiling off step stool. Sherwin Preprite, seemed more watery than I remembered, and I always used to use a 535...?

Three rolls 30lb felt all cut into misc lengths n shapes. By far the best tip I've harvested from PT yet!

I agree fill n finish b nice. Better hide I imagine, and less pinholes. Who's product?

I like big tips cuz, well, more gpm on the wall!!!!! I've gotten pretty doggone good at it as well; its hilarious giving the new guy a 531 at 2800 psi an tell em "go paint those ceilings." They come back complaining the paint comes out too fast. I tell em theyre movin too slow. Part of the fun!!!

I don't know. The block filler. Yeh. They watered it down. Used to be like cement. Much more like paint now. Which is fine with me.....doesn't fill quite as good rough block.....load up on the finish is all.

Tar paper eh?

How much you pay for that?

Red Rosin does the same thing,for about $15 a roll.

Use it all the time on Exteriors,or 2 mil plastic.

I use the rosin paper too, 8.00 per roll here (Chicago Burbs).

Rosin paper wouldn't last a hot minute. We typically spray right down to the tar paper so there is a fair amount of paint buildup on the tar paper. Rosin paper would get too soggy, then it would tear and then you'd have paint on the floor.

This is the rosin paper after 2 coats. When we rolled it up when we finished, the floor needed no clean up.

Plus if you don't cut it you can roll it up and reuse many times.
