"I've been doing DIY for years and came across this product in a reference book. Previously have used all the big brand name fillers and they've nearly always needed a bit of sanding. This stuff is flexible and works in some of the most awkward filling jobs. My house is c1880's and I've used it extensively throughout to seal and smooth cracks and gaps. I would really recommend it to anyone.
Small downside is that the instructions on the packaging don't tell you that it is suitable for exteriors too. And that it can be sanded. It also says don't run your finger along it to smooth it - which I find works brilliantly in awkward joins (especially if you wet your finger). You really can get some amazing results and a top finish.
Love it."

Pros: easy to use
Cons: make sure you have the right size gun
"I recently helped my nephew(professional decorator) decorate my son's new house, and for 40 years I have used various fillers to fill gaps. This stuff is brilliant it seals those fine cracks along skirting boards etc. dries quickly and is easily decorated.
So much easier than a filler which usually needs sanding before you can paint it."

"I love caulk. It hides a multitude of sins and is surely one of the greatest inventions ever. The price is unbeatable and the quality as good as any."

"Sadly this product failed dismally, for us. It does produce an initial fill for joints; but, after 24hours it shrinks to such an extent that re-application is necessary. OK, we probably over-filled the joins; however we have used similar products from EU suppliers that have never exhibited the same problems of shrinkage and cracking.
As a small crack filler, and at the price, probably acceptable, but don’t rely on this one in a commercial filler."

Response from Wickes:By Wickes Decorating Team07 October 2009
Overfilling joints will always cause problems. The recommended coverage of this product is a 6mm bead, and when applied at this rate it will not crack unless there is excess movement within the substrate. It is a water-based product and some shrinkage will occur, however this will not be noticeable if you have followed the instructions and used a 6mm bead.
