What glue to use to seal garage strip in winter?

I used liquid nails to glue the garage door threshold seal and now the glue has cracked and the seal came off. Is there any glue I can use now (in winter) and not cracked?

You mean a threshold seal below the roll up garage door? Mounted on the concrete?

I've used both PL and Liquid Nail and they both held up fine...no cracking or flaking. You have to make sure you get a relatively fresh tube though. One of the seals I put down, the adhesive they sent with it was hard as a rock, no way would it have held.

Warm the adhesive slightly as well before use. Even then...I would wait for as warm a day as possible...mid-50s at least. Do it early so it has the day to set before it gets cold.

It has to be super clean. I used acetone on the concrete and alcohol on the seal. You also have to work fast...if the adhesive skins over too much, it won't adhere well.

I think the PL is a better product also.

In fact a lot of the mastic-type glues will do the job. And of cause it has to be super clean.

Not specifically for this application, but, in general, my experiences have been that PL holds better than Liquid Nails on concrete or concrete products.
