Floor Tile

We got some checker board floor tile and installed it last week before we did our first weekend outing. 6" black/white squares on 12" self-stick vinyl tile. Looked perfect.

Some of the tiles tend to drift, and the adhesive seems to become gooey and non-permanent (temperature-related?), sometimes bunching up against adjacent tiles. Is there anything I can do - like Gorilla Glue or anything, to keep them in place?

I've been a "fixer dude" (maintenance) all my life, and have never run into this before. I've done self-stick tile on my own home, and never had any problems like this. I'm wondering if it's got something to do with it getting kinda warm in the TT when we're not running the A/C. Still, I've never had this problem.

Fixer dudes never want to do a job the second time! <GRRRR!>

I've never had much luck with self stick tiles. Now I use vinyl tile glue and glue them down like dry back tile. That said what did you lay them over. If vinyl floor was it clean and wax free? If wood did you seal it first?

I put it over vinyl. I did a pretty good job cleaning it. (BTDT before, and knew how critical it was that it start off really clean.) I'll have to look into getting some of that glue.

Thanks for the input, Jim.
