Alex Plus 10.1 oz. White Acrylic Latex Caulk Plus Silicone is rated 3.1 out of 5 by 44.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from pretty good stuff This is a very good product. It should be know that in the instructions it says there is a 10 minute tooling time. That doesn't work for me. at room temperature I'll run about 10' of of a straight bead, less for more detailed work, before tooling it. Once even a slight skin has formed you wont get a nice clean face. For deep cracks I recommend not filing the whole void, fill less than a 1/4" or so if you can. This will greatly reduce the amount of shrinkage you'll get. If you want to fill deep voids plan on doing 2 or more coats with a day or more dry time between them.

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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible. After 24 hours in a very low humidity indoor setting, it barely has a skin on it. I can... Horrible. After 24 hours in a very low humidity indoor setting, it barely has a skin on it. I can't paint over it, the brush dragged the skin off in one corner already (less than 1/4" gap). Tube says you can paint in 30 minutes. LOL

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 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 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.
