Many well-intentioned people who want to save money look into building their own spray paint booth for their garage or shop. There are many sites and online discussion boards that give instructions on how to build your own equipment. For $200 and with basic construction skills, it doesn’t seem too challenging to do so on your own. However, you have to consider who you’re getting instructions from on how to achieve this project. How knowledgeable are they about proper air flow, filtration, and design?
A Common Scenario
Many DIYers go to their local big-box store for materials, clean out a space in their shop or garage, and build a booth. They disregard concerns of adequate filtration, ventilation, and egress. A door may be cracked open for ventilation, and that creates a high potential for a fire or explosion. The cracked window also results in items being coated in overspray in and around the unit and outside the shop, further leading to fire hazards. This homemade equipment may also lead to fines because of the fact that it’s not code compliant. As appealing and simple building your own paint booth can seem, nothing beats the assurance of investing in a well-engineered piece of equipment.
Working With a Budget
Another option many consider when on a budget is purchasing a used piece of equipment, but this too comes with its own drawbacks. When buying used equipment, you don’t know about its maintenance history, which is important when it comes to both safety and longevity. Tearing down, shipping, and assembling the unit can also require a huge time and money investment. Even on a budget, it’s best to invest in a new piece of equipment. Even the most basic, no-frills unit will cause you less trouble and save you money in the long run.
