Home projects, crafts and more all require the right tools and supplies. A lot of these projects can include the right type of tape.

With the help of Blain’s Farm & Fleet, you can learn about the different types of tape and their uses around the home.
They say that duct tape can fix anything – it really is a super tape. Duct tape is extremely adhesive and can even create a watertight bond. While it traditionally comes in gray, duct tape now comes in a variety of colors and patterns, making it perfect for art projects, crafts and more.
Electrical tape is used to insulate electrical wires. Black electrical tape is used to insulate the electrical wires, and then colored electrical tape is used to indicate the phase of the wire and the voltage level.
If you’re planning on any painting projects, masking and painting tape are a must. Easy to apply and peel off, painting tape keeps surfaces protected from paint splatter and runoff. Whether you need to spray paint a picture frame or redo the walls in your home, painter’s tape is always handy to have.
Mounting tape is great for attaching lightweight items to practically any smooth surface or wall. The double-sided foam tape can hold up decorations, paper products and wall-mount pictures. It’s perfect for classrooms, dorm rooms and other areas where nails and screws aren’t allowed.
Sheetrock tape – or drywall tape – is used to strengthen the seam between sheets of drywall. Tape is used in the first step of hanging drywall.
