About Me


Scott Martin Hello , I worked for Dowlen Construction painting for over 25 years and as a trim carpenter for around 5 years. I studied mechanical engineering and business at Chattanooga State. I enjoy photography, hiking and camping with my wife and wood working. I am married and we live in the city of Red Bank even though our mailing address is Hixson. I have attended Oakwood Baptist Church in Chattanooga since 2004 with my wife. We were married there in 2006.

Masking Tape

Posted by Scott Martin on Wednesday, February 15, 2017 Under: Painting Tips
When I started painting it was easy to pick a masking tape. There was tan type and it was not great. It is still being made and it is cheap. We never use it anymore because it can be hard to remove even after being applied just a few minutes. It does stick well sometimes but maybe a little too well for my taste. 

We use the Scotch Blue masking tape when we need to tape things off. Now that is said all blue masking tapes are not created equal. Not some prevent paint bleed using special adhesive. So when you go buy masking tape look closely.
Now Frog Tape has green masking tape and yellow masking tape that is safe to even use on wallpaper without damaging the wallpaper.

I am sure making tape will continue to evolve of time to become even better. You can learn more at these company websites.

Till next time!
