Rated 5 out of 5 by from Less nails, means faster install. I used the Liquid Nails Drywall Advanced adhesive on a basement office/ game room fitout project where the studs were not always true, and it was a real time saver for us. It holds fairly fast, but does allow for a few minutes of adjustment when needed. We had been trying to work with all low-VOC products since the family was still occupying the upstairs, so the fact that this adhesive is low-VOC was a big plus. The drywall went up a lot faster with less manpower and we used a lot fewer nails on this project. We will definitely be using this again on future projects.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressed! At first I was skeptical regarding this product because Brands are always claiming they've come out with a product that out-performs traditional methods. Our company has done drywall repairs & replacements for over 25 years & just recently we did a whole bedroom drywall replacement & used this product. I am more than pleased to say that it worked exactly as promised. And, more importantly, it made the job as whole look great. This was my first time trying this product & I can confidently say it will not be the last!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great adhesive!! I received a case of Drywall Advanced Liquid nails and tried it on two different surfaces: concrete and wood. It dried pretty fast and worked great on both kind of surfaces. We tried a whole sheet of drywall as well as couple of small pieces and all of the pieces held up perfectly. It was nearly impossible to take of our glued sample pieces of drywall. The color of adhesive is kind of white to light gray. It can be used as liquid nails as well as an extra layer of insulation between the wall and drywall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I have used this brand liquid nails on several projects recently. I tried on different surface types as well to make sure I got the same amazing and fast acting response and I did. The tubes are a perfect size and go a long way. The tube is also very easy to use and I found it super user friendly. Just the right amount comes out as needed and the tip is perfect for multiple applications. I highly recommend and will use again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong bond I recently had to redo my daughter's room. I basically gutted out her walls and put new sheetrock up. This product out did my expectations. It was was easy to use and very durable. It definitely got the job done faster and less messy. The nails didn't show and I was very pleased with the outcome. I even used it on a couple of projects and it stuck together like cement. I was surprised how well it worked.
