Would it better to screw or nail it????
What kind of glue would be the best????
The pole is just in the way.
Only reason it's there is because of the sag.
But it just has to go.
I would get a jiffy pole and jack it up . also remove any weight on top if possible. the then jack it up as straight as possible. the glue and screw with 3/4 inch plywood and 1 1/2 inch screws with PLR
LePage PL Premium Polyurethane Construction Adhesive, Interior/Exterior, Waterproof, 295 ml
and then let it sit for a weekend, the slowly remove the jiffy pole . it it stayed true then fine in not then repeat with a second layer on top of the first . this time with 3 inch screws.
