Can I use Titebond wood glue to glue a chairrail moulding to

Resolved Question:

Can I use Titebond wood glue to glue a chairrail moulding to the marble tile in a bathroom? The wall is set back from the tile about 1/2" so the moulding sits on top of the tile.

Hi. Welcome to Just Answer.

I am sorry, but no. Wood glue is desogned to glue wood and other wood products. It will not adhear to tile. The most permanent and best way to do this would be to bolt the moulding to the wall framing and then use just a touch of caulking (apply, wipe with a soggy rag and then with a damp one, and finger smooth) to trim in the corners.

Please let me know if you have any other immediate concerns.
