Which caulk before paint job?

That is some of the better caulk on the market. I am with you on the DAP as well. It used to be good stuff but lately it is pure junk that will repeatedly crack.

I think I'm playing more to leah now than Chrisn.
He's gonna be cuttin and pastin and quotin for days over this thread.

Good lord,I am over whelmed "QUOTE"

I was not sleeping and I actually buy some stuff @ the depot( like my new weber grill). I do hate Behr paint.I do type with 2 fingers(slowly) I do get up about 3:30 every morning( slept in a little this AM because I need some blood tests done). I am a painter( would like to be known as a wall paper installer ONLY).I do like gardening. I did used to work for Bartlett Tree Experts.I am a terrible speller and am much worse @ punctuation.I have hep c, shingles and Lyme viruses lying dormant. I am probably full of lead(among other substances) from burning off the back of my house. I do not drink any alcohol, I do smoke cigs. I have a pretty thick skin , the good Dr does not bother me too much, nor does anybody else( except a certain JP on another forum) I am getting better with the quote button. My 2 fingers are getting tired and I need to take my old diabetic, blind, dog for her daily 2 mile walk before the blood work and actual paying painting job that I tend to work at about 13 hours a day.

SO, good morning to you all, I will be back this evening to see what has transpired in my absence:icon_c heesygrin:

Did you ever respond to that other thread? I was not trying to be harsh if that was the way it came across.

Yeah, good stuff there from chrisn...good luck, guy!

In the 3-4 years I've been on here, he's one of the guys I try my best to read, as he makes a whole lot of sense - amongst others, of course. A man of few words...

One of the painters who is working up an estimate indicated he uses Sherwin Williams 950A or similar for caulk. I don't necessarily need a $8/tube caulk, but I want the best all-around caulk for the job at hand. Water clean-up and tooling would seem to be a big plus.
Actually, that DAP Alex for $1.50, if it's the clear version, is not bad. I used some to fill some large quantity of large gaps in my plank sheathing and 5 years later, it's still as rubbery as it was when it first cured. The white colored version, or probably any color, is crap though.
Of course with that said, I am partial to the OSI brand of caulks.

I'm such a girl. You're all right; I should stick to technical talk and stay out of the boys business. Sorry to muddy the fun with my two X chromosomes.

DrHicks - you're right. I did take things too seriously.

jsheridan - I think I'm further away from mutual understanding of the sexes - I promise I won't report you to NOW. BTW - I have been on a dude's golf outing.

And I now get the spirit of the thread. You're all hacks who use blue painters tape.
