Undo Storm Damage with Construction Adhesives

At the start of storm season, you can use LIQUID NAILS construction adhesives to improve the wind uplift resistance of roof sheathing. Run a bead of LIQUID NAILS Brand Subfloor & Deck Construction Adhesive (LN-602) or LIQUID NAILS Subfloor & Deck Construction Adhesive for Extreme Temperatures (LN-902) along the junction of the sheathing and the rafters.

For more information on improving the wind resistance of roofs, contact the Institute for Business and Home Safety or the Federal Alliance for Safe Homes.

To streamline the installation process without sacrificing quality, use LIQUID NAILS® Brand Heavy Duty Construction Adhesive (LN-903) as described below. This allows you to skip metal fasteners for beautiful, durable results in less time.
