Questions & Answers

What do you do when the calking cracks after you used it according to directions?

We also used the dap 35 year warranty and calked our whole house and then painted, days later, checking for touch up spots all the calking seemed to have shrunk, now we have to recalk and paint again, we don't want to use the same product again, we are out hundreds of dollars and I took the week off work to paint, now it's all for nothing.

Same thing happened to me and their warranty is useless I hope the attorney general stops them from offering these fake "30 yr warranty"

What would be the best caulking to use for white floor moldings? I only want to do this once. Thank you

Asked by: Flipper
A white acrylic / silicone mix is my preference. Clear shrinks too much when it dries. Most likely, you will want to cover the caulk with one coat of paint as touch up in order to make sure it is sealed and does not yellow on your trim.

Confused about dry time before painting over

Why do the online specs say you can paint over the caulk in 20 minutes and the use and care PDF say 40 minutes?
Asked by: 24SevnLibrarian
For normal thin caulk lines you can paint over this in like 20 minutes, but if you lay the caulking on kind of think. Say to span a 3/16 gap. Then Id wait about 45 minutes before painting. It really depends on how you lay the caulk.

When applying White Acrylic Latex Plus Silicone Caulk to a recently painted white baseboard do I need to paint the caulk?
Asked by: Sue
Paint application is not required for proper performance, it is typically done for cosmetic purposes only.

Alex Fast Dry 10.1 oz. White Acrylic Latex Plus Silicone Caulk is rated 3.1 out of 5 by 24.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Embarrassed and humiliated by non-drying ALEX FAST DRY I have used a lot of different types of caulks but this is a stand-out for products to avoid. It works okay for paper thin cracks but other than that, it can't be trusted. I put it into a gap in my wall and when I came back the next day, it was still wet. I was flustered and I had to dig most of it out of the wall.

PROS - Fast dry time CONS - Cracks quickly in climate sensitive areas like windows & doors. - Kept coming out of the tube almost 3 minutes after removing it from the gun. Same happened on three different days. If you have a very thin area to caulk (1/16", no more than 1/8"), it should do fine but only in areas not affected too much by temperature. Stay away from areas like close to heater, a/c, doors & windows. I had brought only 2 tubes to try out. After using about 1/2 of the 1st tube, I trashed the remainder out as well as the 2nd tube.

Just a bit more expensive than the standard Alex caulk, but with a faster dry time. This was beneficial when I needed to touch up some caulking before painting later that day. It was nice to have the quick dry time. Good, but only spend the extra when it is really needed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Eh! Look for something better. I don't care for this product. It may be relatively inexpensive, but the results don't last. We had the interior of our house painted and the painters used this on all joints. Cracks have appeared everywhere in less than a year. I've used this product as well. I recently took out two tubes (purchased last year). When I cut the tips off, water ran out. Huh? Then I shook them (which I've never done with caulk) and put them into the caulking gun. Caulk gushed out like thin toothpaste. I threw both tubes into the garbage. I can't recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does stated uses and a few more I have used alex fast dry for several different purposes. From making trim work look good after painting to actually mounting things to a wall like signage and mirrors. So far all of the things mounted were small; less than 24" X 24". When working with the fast dry version of alex it is good to remember that it skins quickly and if it is something that shows can create a less than perfect surface. For this reason I do not recommend adding color to it.

Caulk gushed out too quickly and would not stop until removed from caulk gun. Very runny also. The caulk I laid down started to crumble and bead while I was attempting to smooth it out since way too much caulk was applied since it is so thin. Sad! Fortunately, I only purchased a tube of this trash to finish the very end of a job so at least the whole project isn't ruined. Use DAP Alex Flex 10.1 oz. White Premium Molding and Trim Sealant instead. Marginally more expensive but far superior for interior molding work.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not really paintable You can paint it, but the paint doesn't bond well. Where I taped near it, the paint just pulls right off the caulk when pulling the tape off. In this case "more doing" is just "more redoing".
