Default Will Liquid Nails bleed through composite marble window sills?

The guy at Home Depot said that if I use Liquid Nails to adhere my
window sills - which he said are some kind of composite marble, not
true marble - directly to the exposed wood frame of the window, over
time it will bleed through and become visible in the shape that it's
applied. His assertion was that I should nail lathe to the frame and
use thinset for the sills.

Thoughts?

I have no idea about your liquid nails and composite marble. We have
marble sills with, perhaps,
a half-inch overhang. Appears all that holds them in place is the trim
strip down each side of the
window frame and caulk around the edge of the sill. Very secure,
whatever the method.

Sounds like a fantasy story IMO. Liquid Nails won't bleed through a
1/8" piece of fiberboard. so how could it show up in a cured resin
matrix of faux marble? By the way. why would you want to nail a
machine tool to your window sill (the lathe)? Most people would use a
wood strip called a lath. G

Yes, I have thoughts. Stay away from Home Depot.

I'd use polyurethane construction adhesive. Tough stuff.

Not exactly the same, but...

Our kitchen countertops have a fake (cast plastic) limestone "cap"
around the edges, which I originally adhered with thin-set. After
several of them fell off, I asked the pros at a local tile shop what
they would use, and it turned out to be high strength construction
adhesive.

Your local lumber yard, hardware stores, appliance dealers, etc. Home Depot
has 500,000 items, but never what you really want. They carry a lot of
mediocre brands and products. You can often beat their prices too.

The big box stores give the impression they have well trained and
knowledgeable staff, but in fact, most are not.

I've never heard of this but am by no means an expert on construction
issues and know enough to know there's a lot I don't know on the
subject. That's why I'm tapping into the collected wisdom of folks
here. :-)


By the way. why would you want to nail a

Are you kidding? It's all the rage. Just last week Martha Stewart had
a segment on how a milling machine attached to your living room window
adds that perfect homey touch.

It doesn't appear to me that it would be necessary to be too concerned
with securing them, they're basically there for appearance and don't
bear any weight other than their own.

I use clear silicone and Goop for everything. Never had a failure or
bleedthru yet.

I think he meant one or the other - if it isn't a clear silicone job, it
must be a goop job. I use clear
silicone for everything, but have never tried goop. Favorite tool is
razor-blade scraper....takes off
clear silicone, burn on grease, old tape residue, etc. Mebbe I should
try goop? )

Yes, the hand cleaner is nice, but the adhesive is better:

guests.
