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.

10.1 oz. Alex Plus White Acrylic Latex Caulk Plus Silicone (12-Pack) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 209.

Looked great initially. Found out after 2 weeks when it rained, that it dissolves with water after joints had set for 2 weeks. Have used DAP caulk before and had no problems. Looks like I got a bad batch. Would recommend always trying a sample, letting it dry, and seeing if it's set and waterproof before doing the full job. Very disappointed with this box.

I have been in the trades for over 40 years and this caulk just works. Good body for filling, great adhesion yet gives a good caulk line. This latest installation I did around 20 years ago the first time and it didn't need any recaulk, amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't know yet I just used them last week, they seem to be pretty good. They said they can last for 40 years but will see. I bought my house after 5 years, i saw some of my Windows's caulking were cracked, but that's different because i don't know what kind of caulking that contractors used. Rightnow i would say it is great.

The notable problem is that the product had some issues of needing to be punctured from the tip, which is not required of the product. This happened in the last case I purchased. Possible quality control/production issues. Did not make the product bad, just bad packaging.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great material Dap is a great product for filling space. Holes when painting. Holes where air passes and holes where moisture needs to stay out. Easy to clean up and affordable. Cheers, Jim
