    1. Suspect how well any tape works would depend on the weather and the condition of the brick. If it rained in the last few days or the brick is wet probably not going to work. However, if the weather has been dry for a few days and you are working on the sunny side of a building you would probably have better luck. Brick is also supposed to be sealed to keep moisture out of it. Some sealers have silicone in them and that may affect the ability of the tape to stick to the brick.

  1. I have tried Duct Tape Gorilla Tape and caulking to try and seal around basement windows. Nothing works. Gorilla tape will stick for a couple days but will pull away. There is no moisture in my basement. they are cinder block bricks painted for home foundation. I cannot find anything that will work. Anyone have any ideas? Thank you.

  2. I just contacted Gorilla Tape before visiting this site. I need to cover up a bad fireplace with plastic and was sold the Clear Gorilla Tape by Lowe’s. Fortunately just before I started to do the job I phoned Gorilla Tape Customer Service 800 966 – 3458 and was advised DEFINITELY DO NOT USE THEIR BRANDS OF TAPE for this project unless it was going to be for a permanent application. Problem is the adhesive left behind will be almost impossible to remove once the tape is removed is what the rep told me.
