Reviews for silicone and silicone-based sealants can be found on Bestcovery and Amazon.com. Bestcovery provides expert-written reviews for top-rated brands, while the reviews found on Amazon.com are posted by customers who have purchased and used the product in question.
Reviews for silicone sealants can be found on Bestcovery in the Home Improvement section, under Adhesives and Sealants. In the Best Caulk category, silicone sealants are divided into five sub-categories: All-Purpose, Tub and Tile, Exterior, Paintable and Colored. This allows the consumer to find reviews best suited for the project in question. As of 2015, reviews on Bestcovery are written by carefully vetted and approved experts in each product niche, and articles undergo a thorough editing, review and approval process.
In contrast to Bestcovery's approach, customers are allowed and encouraged to write and post their own reviews on Amazon.com. These reviews are typically based upon ease of use, effectiveness and overall satisfaction. Reviewers also rate a product with one through five stars, with five being the top rating. These star ratings are averaged out for the overall star rating of the product.
In addition to providing reviews based upon real-world applications by home improvement do-it-yourselfers, Amazon.com also provides links to related items.
