Another pinner said: I wish I had seen this years ago!! Tape before caulking. Smooth out with finger. Then peel off the tape immediately, before it dries. Duh and duh. Where was this the last 10 times I've resealed a tub. Tape Immedi, Painters Tape, Houses Repair, Remember This, Good Ideas, Years Ago, Dailyshoppingcart Com, This Old Houses, Caulking Tips

Using painters tape: 1. Apply low-tack painter's tape on trim to create sharp, even line. 2. Press and smooth your tape with a putty knife or a credit card to keep paint from seeping under the tape edge. 3. Once your paint is dry to the touch, remove the tape and slowly peeling it back over itself.
from Fix Now, Save (A Lot) Later comment: SamD | Tue 9/7/10 One roof related big money saver is to get 10 more years out of your roof by spraying the roof with clear Thompsons Water Seal once per year. This sealing keeps the gravel of roof tiles to stay on the shingle and out of your gutters. -- DOES THIS REALLY WORK? Would it void the warranty, or alter how the shingles respond in sun & cold?
