Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Ray Too thin.
I'm only 1/4 through my first tube and I'm getting something else. It's far too thin and continues to run from the tube even after the pressure from the gun is released. Other reviews mention cracking, long cure time and a second coat. Based on how thin it is, I'm sure that's true.
I don't have time to do things twice.
Anybody want my second tube?

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Norm 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. :(

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mike This stuff is garbage
We used this caulk on our woodwork before painting everything white. The coverage seemed good at first, but a year later, it's cracked in many places and we need to re-caulk. Wish we would have used a better quality product!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MikeG cracks quickly
I used this to seal gaps between some trim work, let it sit a week before painting. The next day after painting it cracked.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Grant Low cost and easy to apply, but poor flexibility
Easy to apply, water cleanup. Commonly used by the DIYer.
However note that the joint movement allowance specified on the DAP website for this product is only +/- 12.5% . If your application experiences temperature and humidity swings, it will most likely crack (it has happened to me on numerous window area joints).
For a high flexibility use an elastomeric caulk, which advertise over +/- 25% joint movement. The consumer grade would be DAP Dynaflex 230. There are also other professional grade caulks that are better (e.g. Tower Tech 2 or Big Stretch).
So in summary, this stuff is only acceptable for interior joints with a constant temperature and humidity. But for just a few more bucks per tube you can use a professional grade caulking.
