Don't risk ruining your doors, windows, or trim during a painting project. Without the right coverage, there's a good risk that you could damage your valuables. You could end up getting paint all over your surfaces and it'll certainly be visible to all of your guests or customers.
Fortunately, there's a better way to go.
ThePaintStore.com carries a variety of masking paper and film to keep your property safe. It's easy to use and doesn't require anything special to deploy, so you'll be able to tape off any area even if its sensitive. This kind of special tape doesn't leave any residue or stickies all over the valuables you've been protecting, so you can use it even on areas that already have at least some form of existing paint.
Masking Paper & Film For Painted Areas
Even professionals who have a steady hand around tight corners will experience some splatter. Using masking paper and masking tape is a great way to keep clients happy. Or, if you're doing a project at home, it's a great way to keep the paint within the lines.
Those who have to preserve an existing paint job that's directly above the area they're painting will be among those most likely to appreciate these kinds of extra supplies. Best of all, though, nobody is going to have to go around looking for the type they need.
Take a moment to think about how much easier that makes the process.
There's no need to shop around for the right product. We carry masking paper from trusted brands like 3M and Trimaco. They are heavyweight, so these products will stay put and protect your floors, windows, and other surfaces.
Most of our rolls offer 60 yards per roll, which is perfect for large-scale jobs. Even if you only have a small area to cover, you can save the rest of the roll for your next major project. We also have massive 330-foot rolls if you're looking to stock up.
For serious builders, we have products that also protect floors and cabinets from debris that may come from construction work. Even Trimaco's larger rolls provide a lot of coverage so you won't have to worry about ruining your valuables with splattered paint.
We also carry film that clings to objects and protects them from paint overspray. Those with bigger projects are definitely going to want to look into this particular type of material.
Keep in mind that even those who aren't spraying paint can be at risk for overspray since paint can eventually drip. You'll want to ensure that all potentially sensitive surfaces are covered before you start to paint with a roller, brushes or anything else. Those that do spray, however, will want to take some extra precautions because of the risk that they might get paint everywhere.
Take a few moments before you start to map out every surface that could eventually get covered in paint. Some of these might not be a real risk because you might end up painting over them anyway.
That being said, you never want to take the chance with any surface that actually still remains attractive. Use masking paper and film on everything that you'd prefer to keep protected.
Depending on the type of project you plan on tackling, you may also want to consider full-sized drop cloths, which can cover the entire floor as well as any furniture that you're working around. These work quite well alongside masking paper and film so that you can constantly remain protected even if you have to work along with a fairly large indoor plot of real estate.
Always double-check once you've gotten all of your supplies before you actually start to mark off any parts of the project area. While this might seem like a waste of time, there's no reason to be hasty. You'll want to be extra sure that you have more than enough material to tape everything off before you even start painting.
Anyone who happened to be on a painting project that didn't include this step might very well have some bad memories of it. After all, there's a good chance that at least a little bit of painting drippings or overspray got onto something. Considering the risk that it could get on something expensive eventually, there's plenty of good reasons to go through the extra step.
