    Hi,

    I will be starting painting one of our bedrooms and have seen the join tape coming off. What is the best way to address the same ?

    1. Remove/Peel off the existing tape and redo :-

    Which tape should be used self-sticky or paper : I am a basic DIYer so will prefer easy method ?
    Is it just tape and then paint over it or I have to do something else as well ?
    Shall I peel the complete run of tape from one end to another or peel till one corner and cut from there leaving rest intact?



    2. Also there are patches in the en-suite shower room as per pictures attached, how should they be treated before painting over them.


    many thanks for your help

    Regards,
    inky
