Ensolite Corner frustration - Help

Working on the trillium and it is cleaning up very nicely but a few of the corners have come off and may have been like that for a while. I am using contact cement to re-attach but it seems that they have shrunk. Do you just try to stretch them back or is there any trick to this? Only way I can seem to get the seams to match is to leave it away from the wall in the corner. Hair dryer help any?

Thanks!

Hair dryer or heat gun will do the trick...just be careful and don't over heat it.. Start out heating it up and stretching it at the same time just be careful and don't tear it.....

When I did mine I just made sure the edges were down and slowly pushed down the centre point, and slowly worked the rest down. Has held fine for 7 or 8 years.
