I don't care for this product. It may be relatively inexpensive, but the results don't last. We had the interior of our house painted and the painters used this on all joints. Cracks have appeared everywhere in less than a year. I've used this product as well. I recently took out two tubes (purchased last year). When I cut the tips off, water ran out. Huh? Then I shook them (which I've never done with caulk) and put them into the caulking gun. Caulk gushed out like thin toothpaste. I threw both tubes into the garbage. I can't recommend this product.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kovich14 Not Quite Dry After 20 Minutes
This caulk was not dry and ready to paint in 20 minutes, as claimed, although it did dry faster than a regular caulk. I applied a small bead to interior wall and door trim and came back after 30 minutes or so to tape off the trim for painting...and found it still wet in some places. I don't want to be critical, but it did say it was paintable within 20 minutes. Otherwise the caulk performed as expected and it was competitively priced. I give 4 stars.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Schlub Terrible, terrible caulk--cracks and peals within a week.
I used this to fill in the gaps on my kitchen cabinet door faces as part of a painting project. I sanded and primed the doors, then used the DAP product to fill in the spaces between the door panels. I left it cure a full 24 hours before painting over--well beyond what the instructions recommended. The caulk started cracking within a few days and continues to get worse and worse two weeks later. Huge unsightly cracks on otherwise perfectly finishes cabinets throughout my kitchen. THIS CAULK IS TOTAL JUNK.
This is not the first time I've had issues with DAP caulk. Unless you use a bead that's a full 1/4'' thick every DAP caulk I've used starts to crack quickly--as in a few weeks. I can't believe Home Depot even carries this stuff. STAY AWAY!!!!!!

I bought a couple cases of this calk. I used it in warm, mild and cold weather. I calked EVERY outside and inside window.
EVERY SINGLE BEAD HAS CRACKED. THIS IS STUFF IS COMPLETE JUNK.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jerimiah Great to work with
Dries as fast as it says. Work in sections instead of hitting the whole room at once. Doesn't shrink, nice texture. Tried a few other ones but always come back to this.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JSMasterBath Great product for the price
I have used this product for many years. For the price it does a great job. If you want more silicone in your caulking, then you need a 50yr. Price goes up accordingly. For general painting needs, it does the job well! Adheres well to a properly prepared surface, sanded and cleaned!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 44LT This was the best Caulk of 2 or 3 types I tried
I bought some GE and other brands but I picked up a squeeze tube of this ALEX Fast Dry and I was getting my work done in 1/2 the time. For us women who need to take care of touch ups this is great.
It did not dry too fast and cleaned up was easy. It seemed to work better in colder outdoor temps than other caulk I tried.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JTP11 WARNING. Don't waste time and money
I recently primed and repainted my home's interior. Before painting I used Alex Fast Dry as directed for all trim seams, where it meets the sheetrock. Now, a few months later, many of the seams are cracking. I purchased almost 2 cases of caulk in belief that Alex Fast Dry with a 35 year warranty would easily outlast the paint.
Now I need to purchase new caulk, apply it, and then repaint all the seams, both wall and trim. That's only after I move furniture out of the way. I wonder how many times I'll need to repeat this process when the rest of this product fails.
I should have used Phenoseal.
