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’.

Stumbled upon this post and just wondering whether you’re still here and whether you managed to find a good solution. I am thinking that vinyl tiles are very portable and probably easy enough to keep in storage if you need some extra ones to do a patch job. So would be great to find out how easy to fix they are too.

Still around. Cleaned and remounted the problem tiles with a silicon based glue (like the caulk but fast set). So far they look great, and the wife loves the ease of wiping them down.
