Masking tape peels paint

Posted by ChrisR on October 21st, 1998 09:24 AM

Seems that whenever I apply masking tape on trim,
then paint a room, wait til it dries, and then remove
the masking tape, it sometimes peels some of the
paint, because the paint is both on the wall and the
masking tape. I end up remasking about 10% of the trim
and repainting. What's the cure for this? Base your
answer on the fact that I need two coats of paint, not
just one. I could remove all the masking tape then
reapply it but I figure that remasking 10% is better
than 100%. Thanks...
