carpet tile adhesive problem
I've recently refinished the basement in my 1885 victorian. The basement is dry and I had the old cement floor skimmed and smoothed out by a subcontractor. The floor is now smooth, but not perfectly level (nor was that the plan). The problem I have is that I installed commercial carpet tiles using a releasable adhesive. After a few months the adhesion is completely inadequate - tiles are loose all over the place. I though I might have not used enough adhesive the first time (I used a roller), so I redid a section using a 3/16 trowel. While that section is better than the other areas I am STILL getting lift around the edges of the tiles.
Has anyone had a similar problem? Any suggestions on how to fix it?
