    I have an old house with solid brick walls, walls are cold and damp so I've put up some thermal paper. I used regular solvite extra strong but some parts of it are peeling off.

    I see now there is thermal adhesive which is probably what I should have used. Should I tear it all down and start again or just remove the peeling bits and re-apply using the correct adhesive? 95% of the paper is stuck flat.

    Could It be peeling just because it's cold though? The Old paper was peeling away in the same spots and that was regular wallpaper stuck using regular adhesive.

    Thanks. Lee.

    Are you sure it's not damp causing the pealing? Wallrock thermal liner (just used some brilliant improvement!) has it's own adhesive it seems more like a pva consistency than normal paste.
    That said I would try some vinyl overlap adhesive on the lifting bits before going to mad stripping.
