Mirror installation help


I need to install a 32"x39" bathroom vanity mirror. It is going to be framed with a 1x12" marble pencil. I would prefer to not use clips but want to make sure the mirror is installed safely and won't come off the wall! I'd also like whatever adhesive to be "green". Any suggestions here?

They sell something called mirror adhesive that will keep the mirror secured to the wall. Since the mirrors weight will be supported by the frame, that's all you should need.
Do a search for, "green" mirror adhesives if that's what you want.

Mirror installation help


About 5 years ago I had a very large mirror - about 48" x 72" delivered and had the delivery folks install it on a remodel job I was doing.

All they did was to put several large globs of silicone on the wall (drywall - primered) and push the mirror in place. They held it for about 5 minutes.

It is behind a marble tiled tub surround, so the area gets moist. It's still there, no problems.

No doubt the frame you are going to use will be fine.
