Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by mmsmm2 DAP Dynaflex 230 caulk, DO NOT BUY
I used this caulk to seal around raw wood trim with a wood surface. The caulk did not dry after letting it sit for several days in 60 degree weather. I will now have to remove it and spend another day re caulking all the tim.

I have been using Dap caulks for years. We had to reflash a window and re stucco the outside. I purchased this item in almond color to closely match the stucco color. The tube says the caulk is ready for painting after 2-4 hours. No way!! Even in Reno with extremely low humidity, the caulk is still tacky after 30 hours. I also noticed that adherence is not as good as their previous products or certain other brands but that may change if the caulk ever cures.
The "fair" rating assumes the caulk actually fully cures within another day or it is one star.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Peter The trick is to let it dry thoroughly
I have tried scores of caulks over thirty years of home maintenance projects, I have settled on Dynaflex for most interior and exterior uses, with the exception of places I know are either going to stay really wet, or need to be painted quickly. DAP's Sidewinder works well for those caveats, but it's harder to clean up and it doesn't finger tool as well. I'm only writing this review because someone was asking me about caulks today, and I couldn't quite think of "Dynaflex" since I didn't have a tube of it handy---so I checked DAP's website for the name, then came across the review from the person who had trouble with paint adhesion. My guess is that the gaps were wide enough to need a little extra drying time. I wait until the whitish color goes away completely, then it's safe to paint. It's flexible, it's easy to work with, it doesn't reek, it's easy to clean up, and it's relatively inexpensive.

This product flows on so soupy that it drips.. When it dries it's concave. Cannot recommend this product. I am returning all that I bought and switching off to some other product.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Marsha paint won't adhere
We replaced siding trim on a back porch exterior with Hardy board and used this caulk to seal all edges and holes. It dried overnight and the next day we painted with Sherwin Williams Emerald exterior acrylic latex paint (very expensive), and it would not cover the caulked areas. Everywhere we caulked the paint bubbled. After painting the caulked areas 4-5 times, the cover was finally almost acceptable. We will never use this product again and are returning what is left to the store.

As a General Contractor I have tried many caulking products over the past 25 years and I have to say this is my go to caulk. I not only use it on exterior projects but it also works great caulking in backsplashes and trim components. Have also inspected projects several years after completion and the caulking still looks great.

I used this to re-caulk around a screen door frame after adjusting it. It went on fine, and the color shown on the nozzle was an exact match for the frame. But after a couple of days of curing, the caulk itself is much lighter and much more red than the advertised brown. Just as well it's paintable... :-)

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Not waterproof, do not use in a shower
I recently completed a tile walk in shower. My grout was brown so thought I would use this caulk in brown to caulk around the Kohler glass doors I purchased from Home Depot. I caulked the bottom track both inside and out with this product. Let it dry 2 days before using the shower and noticed a leak. Come to find out the caulk on the shower side of the lower track turned to a brown gue. Now I need to clean all this out let it dry and will use a silicone caulk not a latex like this product. Product says it is waterproof, but is not. Do your self a favor and use a silicone caulk like that made by GE. When that stuff dries it is really waterproof.
