If you just cover the t's with this tape, will you be able to see where it starts and ends. My grid matches, I just don't like some of the t spots.

Asked by: Karla
Because Ceilume's Decorative Grid Tape is a bright white that matches Ceilume's white tiles, the tape will stand out if you chose to only cover the T's.

How do you recommend cleaning the ceiling grid prior to ceiling tape installation? What type of cleaning substances should be used and what should be avoided?

Asked by: mcnewman
Formula 409 cleaner seems to be a great grease remover and has worked very well in our in-house testing. Any grease remover that does not leave residue will work for cleaning the grid. For best results, we recommend removing the ceiling tiles to start your project. Then clean the grid well and make sure to thoroughly wipe off an residue. When installing the Decorative Tape, make sure to place your fingers on top of the grid and use your thumb to seat the adhesive with a good, firm pinch. Just pushing the tape onto the grid from below will not provide enough pressure to seat the adhesive.

Is the tin color a silver tone? The picture online makes it look like a metallic taupe. Thank you!

Asked by: Jillian
The Faux Tin Deco-Tape is pewter/tin color and not taupe. Give us a call at 800-557-0654; we'd be happy to send a sample so you can make sure the color will be a good match for your decor.

Is the adhesive on the back of these permanent or do you need to use an additional adhesive to have it stick long term?

Asked by: Jillian
The Decorative tape has a "peel and stick" adhesive backing that, when installed according to the installation instructions that are included with the Decorative Tape, is permanent. The most important steps are 1) cleaning the grid prior to installation, even if the grid is brand new 2) installing the Decorative Tape before installing the ceiling tiles so you can reach above the grid to apply a good "pinch" from above and below the grid to properly seat the adhesive.

How do you figure the number of rolls you will need for the amount of grid you have?

Asked by: Judy
You'll need about 1 roll of Ceilume Grid Tape for every 80 sq ft of ceiling area. That works out to about 20 each of the 2'x2' tiles or 12 each of the 2'x4' tiles. Please make sure that you follow the enclosed installation directions to insure that the Grid Tape adheres properly for a long lasting installation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We are beyond thrilled with our Ceilume tile purchase and absolutely love the finished, installed look. We have received many compliments on how beautiful and professional the ceiling looks. My husband and I installed the ceiling ourselves and it was a breeze, not to mention the money we saved from not having a contractor install it! The decorative grid tape was the icing on the cake. It matches the tile color perfectly and again saved us the cost of having the grid painted. Thank you for such a wonderful, easy to use product and outstanding customer service. We are telling everyone to use Ceilume for their ceiling projects.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was on a new installation. I first put up the Tin tiles with the white grid and it looked unfinished. I then ordered the tape and was amazed how much improved the look was. The color and texture is identical to the tiles. It was easy to put up - but I had to take great care to keep the tape centered on the grid. The tape is a little wider than the grid - but there are spots where I can stand back and see just a slight streak of white if I am looking for it. I don't think the average person will ever notice it - I am just pickier because I saw it as I was putting it up. Still, it is a great product, and makes the room look more finished and classier. I am very pleased.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Be prepared to glue it. You absolutely need this tape if you want to match the gridlines to a new ceiling tile, especially if doing the white, white.The downside is that it does not adhere to the metal for long. The first humid day all the pieces will be on the floor. I used clear silicone and it has worked great for three months. Get a tube before you start.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our grids were dirty looking even after we cleaned them. Decided to give this a try. We found it slightly frustrating to put on. Just hard to keep perfectly lined up for long spans. Made the ceiling look much better!! We have had it up for over 4 years with no problems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I bought the grid tape a few months ago for my ceiling tiles. The tape is easy to cut and the glue backing is strong. Will order again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Grid Tape Not pleased. Ordered 2 rolls. One roll seemed to. E fine, the second roll apparently was lacking glue and fell off ceiling. Ended up having to pull all tape off ceiling and client not happy with me o er it. Planted the seed of doubt. Talked with customer service and not much help other than sending 2 grid covers to try which zi coukd then purchase o; top of the tape already purchased. Not. Great product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not sticky Client had her ceiling tiles replaced with this product and the tape kept coming off in some areas. We made sure the installer cleaned everything to ensure tape was not sticking to dust and it still kept coming off. Trying to figure out a solution to prevent this from happening.
