Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Tape! This tape worked great. I liked the way that it tore cleanly. It was very sticky, but didn't leave any residue upon removal. April 22, 2014

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Didn't work for me We're painting the exterior of our house in heat and high humidity. Started masking windows and doors with plain masking tape at first... it started peeling off in hours. So, after discovering Scotch made "Exterior Surfaces" tape especially for just such conditions, we went and bought two rolls. Well - it performed slightly better than plain masking tape. It held for a couple more hours but still ended up peeling off of every surface. One thing it DID stick to was caulking - stuck so much that we have to re-caulk the areas that were taped. Unlike regular masking tape - it did not leave behind residue on our siding. Note - the straight "snap tear" feature works great... except for when you tear off a piece more than maybe a foot - then the slight elasticity of the tape springs back and causes it to curl around itself... ruining the piece. So - surfaces it didn't stick to - painted aluminum siding (very old paint - but scrubbed and chalk removed), painted wood (recent - one month old), powder coated aluminum window frame, or its own backing. Surfaces it sticks to well - the adhesive sticks like glue to its own adhesive. Sticks to caulking to the point of doing damage when removed. Not to knock Scotch, we used their "Original" blue tape after becoming flustered with the "exterior" stuff - the Original is holding quite well so far. September 2, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sticks Overnight After A Rainstorm I bought this tape for painting our back patio after reading that it sticks on with moisture. Here in Florida we have a lot of humidity. Not only that, we started to paint and we couldn't finish because of an afternoon rain storm. We started back up the next morning and were surprised to find the tape sticking everywhere we applied it the previous day. When we finished up that morning, we were totally shocked to see that none of the paint we applied both days had gone under the tape. Now that's great sticking tape!! April 24, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Painters tape blue I try to keep some painters tape in my craft room as I am always painting a project. Say a nice picture needs an updated frame and I dont want to remove the paper seal from the back - I tape off the picture of the front. Then paint the frame. When the paint is dry, I peel the tape from the photo or glass & there's no damage! Easy, Peasy! I love Scotch's painter's tape! April 30, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I've purchased this product so I could paint my living room two separate colors, we had to divide the walls so I could have a light color on top and a darker color on the bottom the tape does what it says the colors didn't run an the tape didn't leave any residue on the wall.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by best tape yet !!!! Hands down the best painters tape on the market. A 5 year old can get a straight edge tear every time. Loooooove this stuff !!!! January 14, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tough job The exterior on my house is stucco. I have had trouble finding a tape that would stick to stucco until I tried your exterior painters tape. What a difference that made, the tape was wonderful and did all I could have wished for. You don't know how great it is to find a tape that works on stucco. I can only say that if it works that good on stucco it will work on any surface. July 31, 2014
