Flex Seal Liquid Rubber - Reviewed

 Flex Seal liquid rubber in a can is a liquid rubber sealant coating. Flex Seal can be brushed on, rolled on, poured, or dip something to create a rubber coating.

Flex Seal Liquid Rubber - Reviewed

Flex Seal is an easy-to-use liquid coating that dries to form a watertight rubberized seal. Once Flex Seal is cured it will seal out water and moisture on a variety of surfaces.

Projects that I have used Flex Seal For:

Closet Corner

My basement closet corner was the very first project where I used Flex Seal. The wall and baseboard were wet and turning black from mold.

I was walking around the hardware store trying to figure out how to fix this and that is when I found Flex Seal. I had seen it advertised on television so I thought why not give this a try.

After we cleaned all of the mold from the wall and baseboard, I painted the area with a primer. Then, I brushed the Flex Seal onto the wall, baseboard, and even part of the floor.

As you can see in the photo, after two years there is no moisture or mold. 


Outdoor table
This is our outdoor dining table. I told Fran last year that this would be it for this table, next year we will have to get a new one.

It is a glass top table with a metal edge. The problem is that over the years the edge rusted. I have restored this table a couple of times and really thought it was time to get rid of it.

The edge rusted to the point where it had some holes. I filled the holes with a product called JB Weld SteelStick, sanded it down, brushed Flex Seal over the edge, and then spray painted to match the color. 

We just may get one more year out of this table.


My third project for Flex Seal was to seal some leaking gutters. The end caps and seams on the house gutter were leaking when it rained. 

I brushed on Flex Seal to all of the seams and end caps on the gutters and the problem was solved. This I don't have a photo of because there was no way that I was going back up the ladder to take pictures.

I'm very pleased with the performance of Flex Seal on the projects that I have used it on. I am sure there are many more uses for Flex Seal. It comes in a liquid, spray, and caulking I believe you can buy it in white or black.

  1. I've seen TV commercials for Flex Seal for years, but never paid them much attention because I couldn't believe that a liquid could really work as a sealant. But your review, Sam, certainly convinced me of all the benefits of this product. It's really amazing that simply by painting or spraying you can seal a surface and solve a problem with leaking and water damage. Your 'handyman' hints are always very helpful.

  2. This sounds like a product every home should have on hand, especially a home with a basement. I've never had a basement, but everyone I've known with one complained about water damage. I wouldn't have thought to use it on the gutters, but it does sound like the perfect solution for them too. Being able to use it outside would be awesome. Like you, I would much rather repair than replace.

  3. Sam, I definitely plan to show your review of Flex Seal to my husband. There are several areas around the baseboards in our bathrooms and kitchen where the ants get in during the good weather, and regular caulk hasn’t held up that well. Maybe Flex Seal can do the trick!

  4. I'm sure that once my hubby sees this he will find a few uses for this product too. Thanks Sam, I do believe my outdoor table might get another year too!

  7. Sam, thanks so much for this review. I'm looking for something to put on the basin of our shower (you know, the part you stand on) - It's not leaking, but. it needs a clean look. I'm not sure if this is the product for that, just wondering. This is a handy product to have on hand though; I've seen the commercials as well. I like hearing first hand from someone I know though.
