While painting renovations are a great way to renew and update a home, all DIY projects start the same way – with the preparation. Whether your customers are painting inside or outside of the home, painter’s tape is an essential accessory for the job. However to get the best results, it is important to use the proper tape for the surface. It is for this reason that Scotch® brand has a whole family of tapes specifically formulated for all surfaces. When your customers choose the right tape, they are choosing to create a better result.

Walls, skirting boards, tile and glass are just some of the most common surfaces involved in painting jobs and often call for a multi-surface painting tape.
