Default Over-spray Prevention On Attached Buildings

I've got a building to spray and it is attached to other buildings. I've attached a pic. the brick building is obviously what i'm painting. What are some ways you would prevent overspray from the attached building?.... stretch a sheet of plastic on some sort of pole or 2x?

You hardly got anything there, a slice of 10ft plastic clamped and maybe taped from the soffit on down would take a couple of minutes is all.

Often, the best overspray prevention, is to not spray.

For the tin roof you could fog it with a clear protectant that you simply pressure wash after painting. The just run 10ft of plastic underneath roof along building your protecting. Pretty easy or you could always cut and roll 6 or 8 ft away from area your trying to protect and spray up to it..

I just started my business last year. I sprayed 2 exteriors last fall. They turned out great but there was no nearby buildings. Thanks for the input.

I wouldn't trust shields for that project.

Tar paper > drop cloths > masking tape and 16" paper connected to the tar paper overlapping the drops for the sidewalk.

Tape everything else off with .31 mil plastic, masking paper and drops.

Use a smaller tip to keep the over spray down.

Similar to this.

Nice 440. i spray and either back brush or roll all my exteriors. I wouldnt even think about doing anything by hand. To me exterior paint as all about the prep and and proper amount of product. spraying will get you there alot faster.

With something rough like brick that you would (presumably) back roll/brush, overspray control becomes easier.
I would turn the pressure way down, use a big tip, and hold the gun close. You don't need a good fan pattern on something like that, the sprayer is just to get the paint on the surface. It can be done that way anyway.

On a calm day, a 12" piece of paper and a shield would be all the overspray protection needed.

Another option would be a paint stick roller attached to a spray rig. I dont have one anymore but they do work nice for porous surfaces. Myself I would just fog the roof and mask the building.
