DO YOU NEED TO USE PAINTERS TAPE?

People always seem to have the misconception on if the tape is needed and where are the best place to use it?

The Advantage Of Painting Tape

Using painter’s tape can create great-looking paint lines and edges where needed. If you are doing any kind of line striping you will want to use tape and we recommend green frog tape.

Tips For Taping

The two problems people are faced with are the paint seeping under the tape and also peeling the paint off the wall.

In order to prevent the paint from seeping under the tape, you will need to press the tape down firmly with your finger. We typically suggest two-inch blue tape for your house painting project. Yellow tape is used more on commercial properties.

Once you have completed your brushwork and rolling of the walls you need to remove the tape as soon as possible. This will prevent the paint from totally curing and the tape ripping the paint off the wall.
