Question tile pop ups......

I applied the peel and stick tiles recently. It is an old house and the floors have a few imperfections. The tiles are refusing to stay down in certain areas. Is there a glue or something that i can use to provide an extra bond to keep the tiles from popping up????

There's several products on the market made for glueing down, vct, don't know if they're recommended for use with the peel & stick tiles you're using. Honestly I've never installed peel & stick tile myself, a guess would be that the old floor had some sort of dust or residue on it that the glue on the peel & stick tiles can't adhere to.

With peel & stick glue being less then stellar, you must have the floor clean enough to eat off of. Then you must prime the subfloor to get a good bond.

I use Hemrys 430 clear spread adhesive as my primer, and depending on the tile, I'll flat trowel it on, or I'll roll it on with a tight nap roller. Then let it have plenty of open time to tack up and clear out, without force drying.
