Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by use the right caulking you need to use the right caulk for the right job. Baseboards and crown molding you should use a caulk with silicone so that it remains flexible and can flex with floor movement and expansion and contraction. Using the wrong product will give very bad results. Don't blame the product when the wrong product is chosen October 24, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very good product In all my paint and drywall work I allways use this product. Use it around the edge of painted ftim on doors windows or trim. You get a nice clean look. Don't use this outdoors or around a tube or shower. Cleans with water. October 27, 2010
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worst Caulk Ever This is the worst caulk ever. I used this when I built my house and in two years it had shriveled up, cracked and dried almost to non-existence. I used some of dap's roofing tar on my grandmother's skylights; It cracked and leaked in less than a year. Worst caulking ever. To put it plainly, you get what you pay for. Junk! Do yourself a favor and spend a little extra money for the good stuff. And do your research. June 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to Use I recently used this when building a mantel to fill in around the ornamental pieces on the legs & it worked great. Dried quickly & smoothly to create a finished looking product. Will use again! February 14, 2011
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Save your time and money I have used many caulks over the years, but this one is the worst. It is very thin, and it cracks and splits within 3 months time. I used about 2 dozen tubes of this caulk, before I got wise. Everything I used it on, had to be redone, at my expense. October 31, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by It's ok. Not the best caulk I've ever used but I think it's ok for a temporary fix. It doesn't hold up very well over time. But for the price I don't think I should complain! November 2, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by So far so good. After 19 tubes of caulking I got the hang of it and was very pleased with the results. Caulking is a bit messy, but I'm glad I restored my old home and am very pleased with the results. October 30, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great! I used two cases of this on a house I am remodeling and am very pleased. The product was very easy to work with cold, or warm. Would highly recommend this product. February 22, 2013
