Rated 5 out of 5 by Beth This product has been all over my house!
I am a first time homeowner and have been completely remodeling my house and this tape has been so useful! Not only is it good to help trim around objects, and to assist in that perfect accent wall, but it is GREAT to help do stripes or any other types of line. We also used it on our refinished hardwood steps as we were painting the backboards on the steps.
Rated 4 out of 5 by WildIvy Don't just use masking tape!
When I finally broke out of painting everything white, I learned a few hard lessons about applying color paints. Lesson one was that when one color meets another, it needs a good edge or it looks sloppy. For that, you need tape for masking, and you need to apply it carefully.
The second lesson: tape sticks with adhesive. Use the wrong tape or leave it too long, and it will either leave adhesive behind when removed or take up the finish underneath.
The third lesson: Projects go over; the tape will probably stay there for too long.
Carefully applied, the painter's tape gives a good line. And the longer grace period before adhesive problems are liable to crop up is well worth the little extra cost over going with just basic masking tape from the drawer.
Rated 5 out of 5 by mazie Works great!
We have recently painted every room in our home. We used this tape to go around all windows, baseboards, and vents. It went on easy, stayed in place, and the paint did not run behind it. It worked great for us and less expensive than most brands!
Rated 3 out of 5 by skinnyminny14 Good, but could be better
The paint tape worked well but there was quite a bit of bleeding onto my baseboards. I also had a roll of this really expensive stuff that worked much better.
So, do I go with the OK brand and get a few mistakes.....
Or, do I go with the expensive stuff and not be botherd with cleaning up mistakes.
Something to think over.
Rated 5 out of 5 by JDCA13 Worked Great
As a semi-pro painter I found that the surface of the wall needs to be clean prior to using any tape product. Of course it won't stick to dust and dirt and will pull off. I've gone thru over 12 rolls of this tape and hadn't had any problems. I recommend this tape. If you have issues let them know. I've has issues with 3M tape before.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PrincessDuck Easy to use and comes off clean :)
I found it pretty easy to use and it continues to work perfectly fine for my purposes. I used it while I was re-painting the frame to a mirror so I wouldn't paint on the glass. Now I'm re-doing a house and I use it when I'm painting the trim of the rooms. It comes off easily and gives me clean lines, just like it says. I would recommend this tape. It was the cheapest and works great! :)
Rated 1 out of 5 by scottraa Spend the extra couple of bucks for Scotts
My husband spent 2 days taping the wall in our living room in a very meticulous pattern. Half way through the tape process he ran out of Scott's painters tape so I ran to the store to get more. Since the Duck brand is well known and it was $2.00 cheaper per roll I thought we would give it a try. You defiantly get what you pay for. Once all the painting was done and we went to pull off the tape, the Scott's brand tore off very nicely but the Duck brand tore off our base coat all around where it was taped. Now we have to spend another day just to touch up all that was destroyed by this tape. Complete waist of time! I will definitely spend the extra couple bucks next time.
Rated 1 out of 5 by mamakoala10 IT DOESNT EVEN DESERVE ONE STAR! WORSE TAPE EVERRRR
i had to use the grey duct tape to keep it on the wall!! it would fall off as soon as i would put it on. it didnt make my line clean at all! i am painting a baby room because i have twins on the way. and i had to completely redo my striped because of this useless tape. it took up a whole bunch of my time for nothing!! i will NEVER reccommend this tape to anyone.
