Now, the company is happy to announce that they’ve updated and enhanced their popular quick visual digital guide to choosing the right tape for their home improvement projects. They have recently revamped and added new resources to their comprehensive guide to help homeowners and DIY enthusiasts choose the best tape for the job.

What are the things to keep in mind when choosing the right type of tape?

  1. Not all tape is the same: Each type of tape is designed to help you accomplish a specific task or work best in a specific scenario. Using the wrong tape for the job can lead to real problems, and can even create a safety hazard or leave unwanted hard-to-remove residue on floors, window frames, etc…
  2. Pay attention to features: The width and thickness of your tape matters, but so does the temperature rating, conductivity, and level of water resistance of your tape. If working on an outdoor project, make sure the tape you choose is thick and ideally water-resistant.
  3. Tape versus sealant: For some plumbing and HVAC projects, the tape may not be the best choice. In certain cases, using a sealant or mastic can provide a stronger, longer-lasting, more resistant solution than tape. 
  4. Ask a Pro: If you’re still unsure between foil tape vs duct tape or which type of tape to use for your home improvement project, ask a home remodeling contractor or other building professional for some guidance. Big-box home improvement centers, hardware, or paint stores are almost guaranteed to carry the tape you need, and you can always get input from store employees as well
