DAP ALEX 10.1 oz. Painter's All-Purpose Acrylic Latex Caulk (12-Pack) is the product my question is about. If no, can you recommend a similar product that is? It must also resist the weather, because it will be used outdoors.

Yes paint over, don't use this product outdoors or wet conditions because it doesn't stick well and will crack away from surface. Don't used in kitchen and bath. For exterior Purchase the same brand but one step up in price and tube will be marked "exterior / paintable".

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Contractors Pack Good Price for a case count of this product, wish i could get crates of this stuff versus just the 12pack case June 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LAUNDRY ROOM RE-CONFIGURED Total re- model on my home. What a mess. Had popcorn ceilings removed and all trim an baseboards were replaced. Needless to say there was a lot of caulking to be done. Even I was able to use this product with good results as well as the professionals who worked on my house. The pictures below are of a "laundry room re- configuration. Hot water heater was moved outside to the garage which is on the other side of the laundry room wall. Door , Pluming and electrical were relocated to the other side of the laundry room allowing straight through access to the house from the garage. Made the laundry room much more user friendly.
