Now you are fully protected from the microwaves, and haven't damaged "their" property at all.
The new smart meters that our electrical utility company installed on my house sends out powerful "WiFi" signals in bursts. I am concerned about the long-term health effects of these microwaves and so I decided to make a shield to stop them. Now, as you may know, the whole reason they installed it (in the short -term, anyway) is to be able to read my monthly use remotely so they could lay off an army of meter-readers. I have an issue with that too, but I have no shield for their jobs. Blocking the transmissions of data will force them to come out to read it manually anyway. Too bad: Nobody asked ME if they could put a powerful transmitter on my house, so they will have to deal.
Here's how: Aluminum window screen, available at most hardware stores, TOTALY blocks this type of microwave radiation. A single layer is enough. One could simply tape a big piece over the whole thing, but I wanted something more user-friendly and more long-lived. First, wear some leather gloves. This material is hazardous and WILL poke your hands but GOOD countless times if you don't ! I used sheet metal shears to cut it, but some good heavy kitchen shears will work. You may find them more dull afterward though. It's pretty easy to cut. I used a hot glue gun with clear sticks to bond the base to the cylinder, and shown in the photos. I used some small aluminum pop-rivets to attach the sign, and nylon thread (waxed) to attach the "lid".
I bought about 4' x 3' off of a roll, and cut the piece that the base would be made from. I designed it to be double-thickness for stability and durability. Just cut about 14" x 28", fold it in half and then fold about 1" over itself on the edges to thicken it.
Then mark and cut a round hole in the center of that square that is 1" SMALLER than the cylinder you need to enclose the meter.
