One of the reasons I like my Surfside - the relatively square corners (at least as compared with a Boler) is causing a problem. The ensolite - smooth, not popcorn - is pulling away from the corner, but in the middle of a sheet. I'm looking for good ideas on how to glue it back and hold it in place until the glue sets without surgery on the sheet. Any input welcome.

Not on a seam and not in a corner? Maybe take a hint for repairing veneer on wood...use a syringe filled with glue. I've only done that on a table top, but worked well when a weight was placed over the glued spot, until it dried. Maybe build a brace of some sort that pushes against the spot?

I think I read your question right

I was thinking syringe, too. I know my original ensolite was attached with rubber cement. You may need to take the needle out of the syringe. Bigger hole, but still not noticeable.

For what it's worth,
