Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 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 1 out of 5 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 out of 5 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 5 out of 5 by Great Product from DAP Really like this product. It's goes on easy and easy to blend in. I dry really fast. Love the product. August 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 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
