I've debated painting the interior walls of the house with
metalized paint (RF shield). The downside, of course, is
that it makes wireless transmissions into/outof the house
impractical (that's the whole point!).
We don't use cell phones so there's no real cost/loss to us.
And, if it inconveniences guests... <shrug> [My house,
My rules! :> ]
The big bummer, though, is dealing with resale; who would
want to buy a house in which they couldn't use a cell phone?
[I suspect this would be the sort of thing you would HAVE
to disclose at time of sale -- or leave yourself ripe for
Scraping the paint *off*
would be tedious/difficult -- at best.
But, the "primer for repainting old plaster" thread inspired
a possible solution: what if I put up <generic> wall paper
and then painted OVER that? (assuming it doesn't look like
sh*t) I'll have the interior that I want, cosmetically
(pick a color that I like!), the electrical shielding that
I want *
and*, when I want to "undo" it, just strip the
wallpaper and repaint/paper the wall beneath! (?)
Of course, stripping wallpaper typically takes advantage of
the fact that you can soak the wallpaper and the water will
permeate the paper and loosen the glue. I don't think that would
work if the paper had been painted -- esp if a metalized paint!
(I would have to investigate in more detail)
Does this reasoning make sense? I.e., that stripping would
be almost as hard as trying to remove the metalized paint
from the walls, directly?? I've not hung paper in 30+ years so...
