    yes

    We buy a lot of white and clear caulk, but not many places carry such an assortment of colors as Zoro does, and, they don't gouge you for wanting something different. That's why I buy from Zoro. #sweepstakes [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

    yes

    You can purchase black caulk at most hardware stores but Zoro is a one stop shop for a wide assortment of many other colors, throw in value pricing and free shipping and what you get is loyalty. #sweepstakes [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

    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. :(
    Thank you for posting your feedback. We're sorry to hear about your experience with ALEX PLUS. The 7-14-day dry time indication on the package label is intended to be conservative. As this is a water based (acrylic latex) formula, the sole drying mechanism is the evaporation of water. Dry time can be significantly impacted by cool or humid application conditions or by thick (deep) applications of the sealant. The purpose of the guidance is to ensure the best chances for a successful application. Under most normal conditions (warm and dry), dry times are much shorter. DAP also offers a line of fast cure sealants for use under more difficult application conditions. 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 and so that we can arrange to provide you with a sample of DAP 3.0 Window, Door, Trim & Siding High Performance Sealant.

    Smooth flowing

    I found out by accident by leaving this caulk in a hot garage that as it warmed up it was easier to flow. Would recommedn that if you don't neet to use this item when you purchase it to warm it up a bit.

    Not holding up to rain

    Doing work on outside of the house. I put trim around windows and doors. I used this and it was set for 2 weeks before it rained. When it rained, it all started to wash away and turn to jello like. I used 15 tubes! Not happy

    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.
