PAINTING & TAPING
What’s the secret to a wonderfully painted room? It’s not just the paint. The secret behind a professional-looking paint job begins with a good painting tape. Not all painting tapes are the same, and the least or most expensive might not be the easiest to apply or remove. To ensure maximum protection for baseboards, trim and doorways or to create sharp lines and a clean, smooth finish, make sure to use the right tape for the job.
Different tapes are used for different substrates. There are specific painting tapes for wallpaper, drywall, metals and woodwork. There are also tapes that work on multiple substrates. For example, Painter’s Mate Green® painter’s tape, is made from premium paper and backed with a one-of-a-kind adhesive with the strength to create a tight seal on a variety of substrates. Tape made for drywall may not perform well on metal, so be sure to read the uses on the label before you start painting.
