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.

Paint Time

How soon can the clear product be painted after application?
Asked by: Gran8wall
When Jcb Painting first starts a interior painting job the first thing we do is caulk all gaps in the woodwork. You can paint after a few hours but we prefer to let the caulk set up solid and do the painting the next day. That way we can paint without worrying about messing up some of the deeper gaps with a brush and we can paint faster.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Been a contractor for over 45 years so I've had... Been a contractor for over 45 years so I've had lots of time and experience to make a decision on what caulk to use and DAP is my choice on any and every job. Quality and consistency of product is excellent - whether you buy it in single tubes or you by the case as I do. I have had tubes carry over from one year to the next - whether in the shop or tossed in the bed of my truck - in hot weather and below freezing and the stuff never fails. And I know I've used tubes that have somehow gotten "lost" in the bed - under a foot or so of junk, plywood, etc. and might have been there for a few years and again, the same consistency and performance. That's why I rated DAP Caulk "Excellent."

On four occasions in the past six months, I have found defective tubes of this caulk. Mostly the plastic plunger was missing and the open end of the tube contained a layer of dry caulk. In one instance the tube had a plunger but was clearly mostly empty just by weight. I understand occasionally manufacturing issues happen however the same issue for at least half a year... DAP either does not care enough to fix this issue or is unable to do so. I have contacted them directly more than once so believe me they are aware. In any case, I am tired of wasting my time and money on a product I cannot use... absolute junk!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 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. :(

I am using it to caulk along the edges of newly installed laminate floors. For this use, it takes several days to dry adequately based upon the amount I am using, and even after several days, it is still far from completely dry. In small quantities, it seems to work much better, but shrinks quite a bit. Based upon the amount I need to use, I will have to settle for a cheaper caulk like this one.

I used a couple cases of this stuff, to fill saw cuts in my acid stained basement floor. I masked the cuts, and warmed the caulk in a warming drawer -- and it went down real well and looks good. Time will tell, but hopefully it'll hold up well too.
