Questions & Answers

For exterior use? Paintable?

Asked by: Anonymous
You need to be careful when using this as an exterior caulk. You'll see many bad reviews for this not holding up when exposed to water. You need to read the instructions. It can NOT be exposed to water until it is fully cured. This takes roughly 7 to 14 days. So, in some areas, this is ok, but where I live, going 2 weeks without rain is tough during some times of the year.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Totally overrated reviews for exterior applications 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 (not holes) 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 yrs 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.

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 3 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from READ THE CURE TIME! The cure time is 168 hours! That means this product must not get wet for at least 168 hours if it is to adhere properly. With this in mind we can see that one must remember to keep this stuff dry for the entire cure time if it is to last for 35 years. Do not use this product in bathrooms or kitchens unless paint will be covering it. For unpainted applications you must use a silicon caulk like GE Silicon II. Latex doesn't last long if it gets wet. The only reason for using latex caulk is that paint will stick to it. Paint does not stick to Silicon.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent for interior trim - does not react well to high temperature locations I have used this product for many years and never had a problem. It paints over well and does not shrink too much when dry. I recently sealed a tongue/groove ceiling treatment using this product and after 6 months it has yellowed and cracked badly in many places. I guess the higher temperatures in the ceiling were too much. Bummer - took me 2 days and 15 tubes to complete. Will have to redo that with a better suited product.
