How to glue molding on plastic windows


Hello
I noticed a cold draft right under my plastic windows (PVC)
I put some caulk, but was thinking to put a piece of molding (wood) over it
Can I used acrylic caulk to glue that piece of molding, or should I buy a specific glue?

No clue what piece your talking about that would be PVC beside the window it's self.

How to glue molding on plastic windows


I did notice a thin "crack" between the bottom of my window's frame and the stool, and cold air was passing thru
So I've put caulk, but was thinking to put a piece of wood onto it, that I would paint in white

So I am sure there are some specific glues for wood onto PVC, but was wondering if some caulk can do it....

You only use latex caulking there. DO not use glue!

The one I use most is Alex 230. It has held up better and is real easy to apply.
