Vinyl Tear Away


Anytime I have used it I sprayed both the piece and the surface.

What else other than spray adhesive can I use? Can I use a bead of construction adhesive or just plain old staples? I don't want a fracture.

Re: Vinyl Tear Away


Thanks for sharing Steve.

Ultimately I made a call to trim Tex Technical Support. Spray adhesive and staples are really the only method they support. They don't want any solid wood attachment or other means that would prevent they expect to happen.

Re: Vinyl Tear Away


Excuse my ignorance here but I see no real advantage to using this. Am I missing something ?

It keeps mud off unwanted surfaces and gives you a clean edge after you peel away the strip.

I use it in basements that aren't getting finished ceilings.

Re: Vinyl Tear Away


That’s a stupid video. Hack job. I stopped it after about one minute. Poor example.

I kinda thought the same thing.

For years I've just used tape, mud and caulk it. This tear-away thing looks like a lot more work to me. Tape it, mud it and done.

I skimmed through it. The guy is a hack fo sho. He did say he was also a realtor. What was he trying to accomplish with drywall under the windows?

In fairness to tear-away, the video is not everything you need to know about it.

Re: Vinyl Tear Away


Freaking "Youtube." Instructions on how to do chit wrong.

"Install a ceiling fan" really should be titled "How to burn your house down"

"How to repair your lawmower" should be re-titled "How to lose 3 fingers in 2 seconds."

"Easy way to re-roof your own house and save money" should read "How to be a dumbass and break your neck falling off your roof."

Re: Vinyl Tear Away


Tearaway has some unique places that make it awesome.

I've used it against brick allows you to spackle nice and just tear it off afterwards. I've even used it to replace a ceiling where the walls were wallpapered and I didn't want a flat tape against the wallpaper.

Thanks, I'll have to look into it for sure.
