Hi dmgds,

If the tiles are loose, maybe you can remove a couple and install/nail/screw/glue in a cross-brace between the josts JUST ABOVE where the loose tiles are. You would only need something like a 1 x 3 that's cut to the width of the joists.

You can try to use Construction Glue to glue the ends to the inside of the joists, then glue and install your tiles to that. It sounds like their weight was too much for what you did.

My best to ya and hope this helps.
