Clean/Glue Ensolite walls

What do you use to stick the ensolite back in areas where it is
torn. Closet area has a few rips, and we want to paint it.
Also where in Canada can you get a new oven.
Any help gladly appreciated.

Re-gluing Ensolite

Liquid Nails (ie Construction Adhesive) worked well for me. You'll have to prop something up against the roof/walls to hold it in place while it dries - but it holds fairly well after that.

For filling the gaps/rips I'd suggest paintable caulk. Works well especially if you're planning on painting the walls somehow. (As posted elsewhere) I hit mine with spray vinyl which blended the caulked-in seams very well.

Thanks, heading into the city to pick up paint etc etc.
Yours looks great, we don't have to do that amount,
mostly where the cushions rubbed it. Used your pic to show where.
Trying to decide what to do there.

Thanks as well Chester, going to use the melamine paint as well.
Once you get the beast home they show all the little owies they
have been hiding. Nothing major but still need to be taken care of.
We have a piece in front of the table that is used to protect it so maybe we can use the same type and place it on the side to stop the
wear. I noticed you used the laminate flooring, that stuff is great.
We have in in our house and cleans very well.

You can see the area under the window by cushion

check to make sure the window is not leaking. that's the first thing that comes to mind when I see stains under the windows. drain is plugged. or caulkings cracked, or both. Course if it's cut or worn off then that's another story. :)
