    As a spin off of another thread... What have you guys found to be the best adhesive for caps and some decorative designs requiring adhesives? I agree with whomever in another post that it seems to me that guys are relying on and using a little too much adhesive in places where maybe theres a better alternative? ideas? thoughts?

    We have always sworn by PL Contruction adhesive. I have always wondered about their landscape adhesive but have never tried it.

    While on the topic, has or does anyone use SRW Adhesive? We have been to a couple of seminars that swear by it, nad saw it is flexible enough to withstand freeze thaw cycles.

    PL is ok at best. It doesn't always hold and is so easy to peel off brick after a year or so. Check out this glue by Alliance. No way you are moving a cap after using this stuff.

    I would be talking to the people who sell you the block and ask them to throw in the pl for free. Ask, and I bet they do it for you.

    LOL,

    that's $1K of glue...
    i'll give it a try, but we already got a huge price break on the block, so i would doubt they will do it.
