Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 12reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not what I expected Bought this product at Sherwin Williams. Painting exterior doors so I wanted straight lines. Thought this would be easier to put on. Positive - it will tear in a straight line - but you have to tear in the right spots or it doesn't tear. Negatives - doesn't seem to adhere that well, it rolls up and the ends stick together if you are not careful and you'll waste a lot of tape, not sure it's worth the extra money. August 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This outdoor tape worked great for the entry way on the house. The tape stuck to where we wanted it to - and it did not pull off the old paint later - it worked remarkably well on a vinyl-sided home. July 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by kitchen tool I used to paint my kitchen and it really worked well January 9, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Does not adhere I tried to use this product to attach plastic sheeting to painted T1-11 siding. It would not adhere to any of the surfaces, and would not even adhere to itself very well. Finally had to end up using the original blue painters tape on the job. The original blue tpae is advertised as having less than half the adhesion of the exterior tape, but in fact is twice as effective.Very disappointed for the price. October 26, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by Quickly curls up and sticks back to itself when peeling off roll The concept was good. It appears it would have been a water resistant tape based upon the vinyl feel to it. But the moment the tape is torn from the roll, it very quickly curls up and sticks to itself, rendering it useless. Once the adhesive has stuck to itself, the tape is no longer useable. I ended up throwing away more than I used. October 2, 2013
