Hi. I’ve got a problem I’m looking for ideas to solve it. Years ago we installed vinyl tiles on the walls of a first floor hall. It looked great, wiped down easily, and still looks good (it was rated 15 to 20 years for on the floor). We also used vinyl for the backsplash in our kitchen, same thing, love it. Last year we re-did our stairway and used vinyl 12” x 12” tile. The glue Lowe’s had was not what we had used before, but was supposed to take its place( I think it was supposed to be more earth friendly). Anyway, as of mid winter some of the tiles (randomly) are starting to de-bond from the glue. They looked good for approx. 9 months. The glue is Laticrete Premium Multi-Mastic Adhesive (white). Is there anything better available? I want to scrape the glue off the wall and re-tile. Since its staying on the wall, is there some prep I could do to the tile to make it bond better?

you should try ‘Silicone caulking’ or ‘urethane glue’.
