around it, not bowing, just a bit soft
any magic cures?
one idea was to inject some construction filler/adhesive...
or a big no no?
years ago we used this foaming yellow sealant for a rough opening
in new construction, I remember the stuff has to be dealt with care as it
expands, the name escapes me & it came in a can with a tube
anyhow, any thoughts are appreciated
You are thinking of Gorilla glue, just the right stuff.
