Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great!! I received Drywall Advanced Liquid Nails a few weeks ago, and I have to say it works great!! We used it to drywall our addition we added to our house, and the results were amazing, the fact that it reduces nail pops by 90 percent makes it that much better. I love the PPG brand and will be purchasing again and again. I would definitely recommend this product to help with all your drywall needs.

We are DIY ers and this product really helped up in so many ways! The application was super easy and the bond , finished product was flawless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very strong! Liquid Nails was easy to use - no drip and extremely strong after drying. I used this on a remodel job in my home and it worked extremely well. I would highly recommend using this product as it easy to use and has great strength when dry. I purchased several more tubes to have on hand after using my first one! I will definitely be switching to this brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I started using this liquid nails in my rentals were the occupants had moved out and left a lot of ugly nail holes from having pictures and all sorts of decorative hangings and this product did an awesome job. Some of the holes were pretty big and some jagged but after using this as touching up with paint you can't even tell the holes were even there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adavanced formula boosts our confidence! You definitely notice the improved "grab" of the Drywall Advanced. It especially takes away some of the "panic" you always feel when installing ceilings! This is the first adhesive we've used that gives us the confidence to actually cut down on "just-in-case" anchors. Just as easy to work with as standard adhesives though -- squeezes nicely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good drywall adhesive I recently had a leak in my kitchen ceiling and had to cut a hole about 2 foot by 2 foot to make the repair. I used this product to help the drywall repair to ensure it was going to stay tight against the beams. As you would expect this is very easy to use and the clean-up is quick. This is a very good product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great product!! I was looking into buying liquid nails for drywall and I'm glad I was able to test these out. I used them to patch my walls and to put my new toilet in. So far it has worked wonders compared to other products that I have used in the past. This is very tough and can be used for a lot of different products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Liquid nails Liquid Nails is an amazing product that I've been using for about 20 years now. I use it primarily on the top of floor joists before I screw the decking down so that way we don't have squeaky floors or screws that back out can cause problems with your flooring. Definitely very handy item to use/have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this stuff This stuff is awesome. We used it for various projects around the house as well as drywall products. We didn't have a single issue. We even put a roof on a little shed with it. It goes on easy and not super messy. Dries beautifully, and quicker than most. I was extremely pleased with this product.
