Anyone have experience glueing back paling? Would Gorilla Glue hold it back in place?

Welcome to Workshop. It's great to have you join the community.
I suspect that fence palings warping over time is a common problem so I'm sure there will be plenty of interest in this topic.
Feel free to post anytime you need a hand or have a project to share.
Hi @Prof - thanks for the response; warping alongside the adjoining palings not the rail and overlap of palings isn't much hence trying to avoid screws.
Ah..I see what you mean..bit of a tricky one..I'm thinking that there's nothing really suitable for a permanent cure..
Once palings are warped there's not much you can do except replace them...
"overlap of palings isn't much hence trying to avoid screws."
Overlaping as seen in No.1?
Are some of the boards bending sideways as in No.2?
All I can think of is screwing all the top ends of the boards into a piece of wood at the back - and painting the exposed unpainted edges.
But it still probably won't look that good. 😞
Thanks @Noyade - good illustrations, exactly like No. 1. I am able to push them back, hence I was thinking of using strong wood glue (with a clamps until dry).
Hi in the past I have used polyurethane adhesives which works well, however like all treated pine no matter what you do warping will take place.
I take it the fence is treated pine? The other factor is that the fencing is cut so thin hence warping is common. I have noticed in some places in NSW the palings are around 10mm thick reducing some warping.
hope this helps
Thanks @r23on - yes the fence is treated pine, think you are spot on the palings are to thin.
