Answer: 
Yes, but use a solid body latex stain for best results. I recently repainted one of my rentals and used Thompsons Water Seal solid body stain, after prepping then using this caulk in all the trim joints, on top of horizontal trim, nail holes, around the windows, doors, fascia boards, soffits, etc. It works well.

Answer: 
Hey Gran8wall,
Typically, you'd paint the caulk after it has completely dried.
Depending on humidity, temperature, and other factors, this can vary.
But typically, you should be able to paint over it within 2-4 hours after application.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SUPERB PRODUCT! RENEWED THE LIFE OF MY RANCH HOUSE!!!! We have an older ranch house and had a terrible time with the 40 year old wood siding having cracks and having cupped and pulled away from the house. These issues allowed all the flies and bugs within miles to migrate into the house for winter hibernation. We had to deal with bugs all fall and winter. We also wanted to repaint the house. We needed a superior product that would seal the cracks and openings caused by the cupping of the boards. We also needed a product that would allow us to paint over it so the new paint job would look good. The product was superb and superior in every way. It blocked the flies and bugs from the house and the paint covered the Alex Latex Caulk. We could not be happier with this product and buy it by the cases. Next project is the barn!!!! Thank you! Susan & Mike Dickson November 11, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by NICE product This white caulk with silicone is a very nice product for interior use. Not so good for exterior use. AND do not confuse this product with the CLEAR caulk....that product is strange....takes too long to dry! But to get back to the subject. New tube of this has good workability, cleans up with water and skins over in good time. February 11, 2016
