Customer Questions & Answers

For exterior use? Paintable?

Asked by: Anonymous
The only good thing about this product is that it's cheap but, on that note, you get what you pay for. DAP latex caulks are ok for the purpose of caulking over nail heads on siding but, I do not not recommend using any DAP latex caulk product for any exterior window, siding, or trim applications. It is a water based product that will dry out and will not stand up to the prolonged exposure to the outside elements and constant high temps of summer. It will fail within 5 yrs regardless if the product says 10, 25, or 40 yr etc. Using this product has been the cause for me personally having to repair rotted siding, trim, window frames, and retro fit style windows, and in some cases the cause behind extensive repairs to the exterior wall framing because the caulking had cracked and completely failed, and always in the 5 yr time frame I stated before. I recommend using a polyurethane based caulk for exterior applications such as these. It will save you in the long run, and I will happily dispute this with anyone who tries to say different, including the manufacturers themselves.

can this caulk be stained?

Asked by: shorty
I had some dried Alex plus caulk that I had wiped away from sealing just today. Just tried Minwax stain which is what I just stained my countertop with. The short answer, no, it does not do well. It stained ever so slightly, but it made it look dirty. Our stain color is Minwax color: Provential, so it's on the darker side and the caulk didn't take the color at all besides just the little bit. Out of a 10, it was like a 1 1/2 that it took the color.

It worked well for that without shrinking too much. However, I used it also to fill nail holes and found that it shrank too much for such an application and I had to switch over to wood putty to complete the job.

I've always liked Dap products, and when we installed new windows in our home, and trimmed the outside, this Dap Alex Plus 10.1 oz. White Acrylic Latex Caulk Plus Silicone (12-Pack) was the perfect product for caulking the new window trim. Thanks Dap, and Home Depot!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Did ok I have used this product fo filling in areas to seal off holes and other open areas. It is easy to apply. Noticed it cracked after several weeks but may be partially due to not painting right away. Also it shrunk a bit so had to reapply over nail holes etc.

I install doors for a living and I use it everyday for interior caulking, I would not use it on exterior or under threshold unless you have 10ft overhang, for exterior I would use DAP for windows or QUAD

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Caulk Easy to work with, dries fast, paints over very nice. About every 4th tube had an air bubble in the middle which is only bad when working with pneumatic caulking gun. Still better than other brands.
