Jeremy Sanchez

My name is Jeremy and I’m here to assist you in choosing the right glue for the job!
My passion for adhesives and building spans decades, ever since I was old enough to know what glue is, basically.
I was always fascinated by how you could mash together several materials and create something new with them.

Naturally, glue plays an essential role in building. But I’m not only a hobbyist who does this for fun.

I have direct experience in household repairs and professional repairs, as well as construction.

I’ve worked with adhesives all my life and gathered ample knowledge on how to use them proficiently.
This knowledge, and more, I offer to you in the guides on GlueTips, all of which are based on research and my experience.

I use the same adhesives that I’ll tell you about in these guides, and I choose them using the same criteria described here.
All that is here is to help you become a better handyman and use glue like a professional constructor.

Using my experience with glues, I’ll give you simple facts and helpful tips for specific projects.

I won’t beat around the bush and only present you the facts as I observed them throughout my years of home repairs.

Even now, I use this knowledge for my projects around the house.

Think of me like the expert you come to for a piece of advice on adhesives. You can leave comments in the comments section and I’ll be glad to share my recommendations on any topic.

Need to repair your plastic radiator or work with stainless steel and polypropylene but you don’t know what glue to use?

Not a problem because I’ve worked with all these materials and I know how to bond them permanently.

I’m also an avid learner, so I’ll always do my research before talking about a topic.

After all, the industry is constantly evolving and new tech pops up all the time. You can expect fresh and factual information that’s tested and industry-proven.

I hope you’ll find these adhesive guides helpful and I’ll see you in the comments section for any problems you encounter!
