I have more lumber to paint now and learned my lesson about using cheap
brown masking tapes last time...took me a long time to finally get the tape
off with razor blades and "GOOF OFF"...so this time I will get some
Can someone recommend what tape to get for painting in the exterior.
I will be using acrylic paint and primer on pressure treated lumber. I will
be applying the tape onto:
(1) Aluminum - extruded aluminum from overhead screen enclosures.
(2) Foam - styrofoam - yes I am serious. I am concerned if I put tape when
I peel off the styrofoam will break. If you are wondering why I have
styrofoam this is from installing a roof panel over a planter area using the
PALRAM SUNTUF system. Their horizontal closure strips comes in foam...see
Look at page 3 accessory 5, the polycarbonate panels sit on top of the foam
closure strips, and they are attached to lumber (2x2) that I am going to
paint. I know if I paint the foam the paint will crack in no time so I need
to mask them off.
I saw some blue 2" 3M tapes at HD for $8.00 a roll are those any good?
Thanks in advance!
