What kind of self-stick tiles do you have?

I know. They are a quick fix and I am doing the same by putting a thin layer of glue down w/ a smooth edged trowel. If you have a lowes they carry HENRY's and also the guy said that Armstrong makes a glue that will work w/ those tiles!!! Just don't use a notch trowel b/c glue will ooze out onto the edges of the tile. I just bought 250 sq. ft of these tile made by armstrong. Seem to be thicker than the sheet linoleum!! But what I am doing is tearing up the asbestos floor and putting a skim coat on the subfloor where the joints meet. Cleaning it of debri and everything and laying them down. I will probably have to skim coat the areas that have glue still stuck on the subfloor. Good luck

Yeah, I know. But if you follow the manufacturer's instructions, prime with whatever the manufacturer recommends, and have a nice, clean floor just before you lay the tiles, you'll do okay. So will the tiles.
