Alex Plus 10.1 oz. All-Purpose Caulk Clear is rated 2.4 out of 5 by 36.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I trust this product I have had nothing but success with this product. Part of that success is using it as intended as specified on the tube. Joint fill is only as good as your preparation of surfaces. Clean,dry surfaces no more than a 1/2" applied at at the appropriate temperature and humidity. It's really that easy. I will continue to have success with this product for years to come.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I would not buy this product ever again. I have destroyed 2 tubes of Dap Alex. The caulking gun has pressed the plunger further into the tube without allowing any caulk to come out of tip. Yes, after cutting open the tip to accurate size of need. Still need to complete the job, but this might not be the best product to use. Frustrated. Pfooey!!!! Will be returning product to store where purchased. If they don't take back, then returning directly to DAP.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Excitement to frustration. I was excited to get this product for sealing around my exterior home; window, trim, etc. Excellent flexibility (I need that for cedar siding!), adheres to wide range of surfaces, shrinks less (in my opinion it shouldn't shrink at all), waterproof (oh, a must --- I live in the Pacific NW!), etc. What could be wrong about this product? Oh, joy! Grinch time --- there it is in small print in 2 different sections; "Caulk ...dries clear in 7 - 14 days" and "Allow to dry clear before painting" (Seriously? 14 days?). So, when it is cured, it is clear. In 14 days. Really?!?! But the real kicker is "Don't apply when rain/freezing temps, are forecasted before full cure can occur." And, based on their label, that is 7 to 14 days. So, if there is a chance of rain within 2 weeks and you want to caulk, seal, and paint your home --- don't buy this product. Wishing now I would have purchased the "....paint within 30 minutes. Can apply in rain..." alternative brand. :(

Calling it clear when it is not is an insult.Saying it will turn clear,but when it does not well it's something the user did wrong. Why don't you just label it white and be done with it? Or make a truly clear caulk? Misleading and dumb to call this clear when it is not.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This product sucks. We did three apartments in Santa Monica, over three hundred windows. More than three quarters of them leaked with the last passing of rain. When I spoke to the company about it, they basically said it was my problem. Never again will I use this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Packaging Created a Mess! Used Alex Plus and it blew the nozzle off the can. Can't get it back on. Used a tube of Alex and the back of the tube blew out pilling caulk all over the counter top and rug. Garbage quality control. I am through with any of your products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Alex Plus is my first choice Alex Plus has been my first choice all-purpose caulk for decades, first in New Jersey where rain and humidity where the primary exterior challenges, and now in north-central Nebraska where temperature extremes and intense sun are the challenges. I consistently get excellent results. My first and most often repeated lesson as an apprentice was, "Understand your medium." Wood moves. Some species more than others. Some environmental conditions cause more movement than others. That's the basic understanding the wood medium part. Caulks dry differently, adhere differently, and harden or remain flexible differently. As long as one understands and selects the right medium for the job, and matches media that are complementary, there will be success. But when one attempts to bind up a board and batten wall with caulk, for instance, product failure and dissatisfaction are bound to follow. The board and batten system was designed to accommodate the movement of the wide boards, so let them move, or find a caulk that cures with the elasticity of a glob of chewing gum on hot pavement.
