Best outdoor wood glue?

Ruby RedApril DeatonLaura


I bought a broken wood reindeer dirt cheap, figured I could just glue the broken pieces. But I need to know the best outdoor wood glue to use. It needs to withstand cold temps and snow/rain without cracking. Elmer's Wood Glue and Gorilla seemed to get the best ratings when I did a Google search but would like to get any woodworkers opinions.

    Use E6000 glue. Works on everything indoors or out.

    Loctite is a very good outdoor adhesive. You can find this in the paint department at HomeDepot.

    I have found that if you are attempting to have the glue set in cold temperatures nothing will work PERIOD! However being that I also do a lot of DIY all winter long I learned this myself the hard way. I have used Elmers as well as Gorialla glue for just abput everything just not when its cold out.

    Hi Ruby Red, I really like Titebond brand indoor/outdoor wood glue. I prefer to use a wood glue on wooden items, just my personal preference!

    I just fixed a wood item with E6000 & its holding up very well to very cold temperatures and a lot of wet weather.

    I would just get clear drying Gorilla Glue.
