DAP Seal ‘N Peel – Removable Weatherstrip Caulk

DAP Seal N PeelDAP Products continues to release new caulking products that help improve the quality of caulking and sealing projects. Properly sealing windows and doors is one of the best and easiest ways to save energy and money around your home. According to the EPA’a Energy Start Site:

  • Improving your home’s envelope can save you up to 20% on heating and cooling costs, or up to 10% of a total annual energy bill.
  • Air leakage accounts for between 25 and 40 percent of the energy used for heating and cooling in a typical residence.

Removable Caulking Review

SealNPeel applyWe love the idea of a removable caulking product. Just thinking about all the possibilities creates an endless list of ideas. So the true question is how well does it work and how easy is it to remove.

In order to test the DAP Seal ‘N Peel we applied it to a wood window sash using a standard caulking gun. Next we let the removable caulking dry and stay on the window for over a week so that it would cure.

We were pleasantly surprised at how easily the DAP Seal ‘N Peel removes from the wood surfaces. As you can see in photo the caulking pulls right away from the wood surface in a single piece.

    My experience (and many others, from the comments online in other places) is that DAP changed the formula in 2016 and the newer version does NOT peel off easily or cleanly.

  2. Leo Sullivan says:

    It IS a handy product that eliminates drafts well, but Would agree with the above. Current formulation tends to rip in smaller bits rather than the nice long peel of former version. You can minimize this by laying down a full bead- maybe wider/thicker than really needed- so there’s more substance when time to remove. Also, be ready for the pronounced vinegar smell during and a couple of hours after application. I try to use small- foam backer rod most of the time, even using scissors to cut in half for small gaps. Tighten up!
