I found some vinyl tiles I wanted to lay in my vanity area of my bathroom. I pulled up the carpeting and found a subfloor. I consulted my local hardware store who informed me that all I need is a primer. I prepped it with a primer, after thoroughly cleaning it, however the tiles continue to slide, they are not sticking. I don't know what the problem is. I was wondering if any one could help rectify this. I need help as soon as possible, as I have company coming for Thanksgiving and really need to get this done - quick. Thanks.

whne installing vinyl tiles you need to use an adhesive called a dry-set or sry-tac adhesive.

the adhesive needs to cure dry before placement of the tiles.


There are two ways to do any job. The right way and the wrong way. Do it right everytime.
