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.

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 use DAP Products often and used this one to seal a seams on White gutters around the house. One of the seams continued to leak 2 days after drying. I reapplied and it seems ok now... It could have been how I initially applied it, but time will tell. Seems good though

    To begin the DAP Alex Plus Caulk is by far a better product than any I have previously used of a Dap brand or other brands. I would definitely purchase this product and I was aware of if before I tried it, but hadn't used because I didn't think the "Plus" aspect of the product would make a difference, it did. The product was very easy to work with from cutting the tip to size., using to clean up while in uses and after, I was please at the quality and ease of use. I would highly recommend this product, DAP Alex Plus Caulk, mostly for ease of using and over all quality of seal and look provided.

    I used this to replace some old nasty caulk in my shower, and I was pleased with the outcome. I then put some around the cracks on the outside of my back door, and it worked just as well there. That one was nice bc I was able to paint it to blend in, and I don't have to worry about the crazy weather we get here ruining it. I'd like to keep
    Some of this stuff on hand, good stuff.

        I've used a lot of caulking sealants in the past. Most are adequate, but can be a little messy. This one has a nice flow to it without being too runny. I find some are either too thick or too thing. Forgive the Goldie Locks reference, but this one is just right. I can't comment on if it can be painted easily, but the white is a nice clean bright white. It's forgiving when pushed into cracks with a fingertip and smooths out nicely. Drying time was fine, although not fast. It maintains a little flexibility so I expect will last many years. Definitely recommended.

          I love this product! Typically silicone can be hard to work with, but this combination of materials that make up this sealant are outstanding.

          I used this around my exterior windows and doors (just moved into a new house) and wanted to not only weatherize them but also keep the bugs out. This product worked great, not only in its coverage, but also its application and cleanup (for the times I over applied).

          Greatest part about the product... the lifetime on it! Silicone based material will last!

              I had a couple of windows that had developed large gaps. I was concerned that if the caulk would shrink too much it would pull away and wouldn't work. The gaps were slightly larger than recommended by most caulks. The DAP product filled easily. It painted well and now after a couple of weeks there is no sign of leakage. I got this tube as a sample, but it is now my go to caulk.

                    I have had nothing but success with this product. Part of that success is using it as intended as specified on the tube. Joint fill is only as good as your preparation of surfaces. Clean,dry surfaces no more than a 1/2" applied at at the appropriate temperature and humidity. It's really that easy. I will continue to have success with this product for years to come.

                          This is a very good product.
                          It should be know that in the instructions it says there is a 10 minute tooling time. That doesn't work for me. at room temperature I'll run about 10' of of a straight bead, less for more detailed work, before tooling it. Once even a slight skin has formed you wont get a nice clean face.
                          For deep cracks I recommend not filing the whole void, fill less than a 1/4" or so if you can. This will greatly reduce the amount of shrinkage you'll get. If you want to fill deep voids plan on doing 2 or more coats with a day or more dry time between them.

                              Comments about Dap Alex Plus 10.1oz Acrylic Latex Caulk Plus Silicone in Antique White (18172):

                              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.

                                  How about you other reviewers stop trying to use a basic multi-purpose painters caulking because you are too cheap to buy higher end DAP products designed for siding. Also, try prepping your walls first. Did you even remove the old paint or caulk?

                                  And Norm, how about not being dense and use white if you had planned to paint or a fast dry sealant. Stop blaming the caulk for your stupidity!

                                    My friends said I couldn't have a giraffe. So I just decided to build a 10' giraffe.

                                    I have used SEVERAL tubes of Alex Plus chalking so I named my giraffe "Alex", I'm actually on my 4th case of Alex Plus caulking. He is so awesome.

                                        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. :(
