Totally low quality I caulked the same joints like 3 times and the cracks keep coming back, i have used this product on warm temperature inside no problem no cracks sometimes. now on cold weather doing interior work it keeps cracking, and my walls don’t move to crack the caulking because if they where moving all the drywall tape was going to be damaged

Thank you for posting your feedback, we're sorry to hear about your experience with DAP ALEX PAINTER'S Caulk. Because you did not provide any background regarding your project, application technique or application conditions, it is difficult to provide a proper response or any specific product usage guidance in this format. DAP ALEX Painter's Caulk (general purpose caulk) is designed for use where low to moderate joint movement is expected. For application where higher joint movement is expected, we would recommend the use of softer/more flexible sealants such as DAP DYNAFLEX 230 or DAP EXTREME STRETCH. At your convenience, please contact DAP’s Technical Customer Service Department at 888-327-8477 so that we can obtain some additional information regarding your experience and to discuss the above-referenced alternate product options.

Thank you for posting your feedback. We're sorry to see your low star review on DAP ALEX Painter’s Acrylic Latex Caulk. Based on your commentary regarding "cracking" during the initial drying phase, it would likely indicate that application site was subject to movement/instability prior to the product reaching full performance and/or that insufficient amount product was applied to the joint. Joints that are prone to experience significant expansion/contraction forces may require higher performance products, such as DAP DYNAFLEX 230 or DYNAFLEX ULTRA. These types of more specialized elastomeric joint sealants offer several times the amount of flexibility offered by DAP Painter’s Acrylic Latex Caulk. Because you did not provide any details regarding your experience, such as application surfaces, bead size, temperature, humidity or any information regarding your application technique, it is difficult to provide you with a more detailed response in this format. At your convenience, please contact DAP’s Technical Customer Service Department at 888-327-8477 so that we can obtain some additional information from you about your experience and to discuss alternate product options.

this is much better than the Alex Plus that has silicone, because it is much easier to work with and does not shrink. But, in wet conditions, for example in my architectural fence cap, it loses its bond.
