How to Tape Baseboards for Painting

First and foremost, when taping off anything to do with painting, use a good quality roll of painter’s

  •  High quality painter’s tape will not leave residue and will also not increase the chance of
    damage when being removed from walls.

To begin, place tape around the baseboards.

Taping Corners

For difficult areas such as corners, use a flat edge and place it on the tape when tearing. This gives the
end of the tape a nice clean straight edge.

Removing Tap Off Walls

When your paint job is complete, slowly remove the tape by pulling it flat against the walls. This will
prevent damage to your walls.
