I need to replace some slate floor tiles on to an exterior concrete front
doorstep. Can't remember what I used originally (about 10 years ago!) but
they came loose in short order and I stashed them away until I got round to
sorting it out - and that particular tuit has just come home to roost!
It's actually for a rental property which I'm tarting up for sale, so a
reasonably quick'n dirty method would be preferred TBH! Anything
recommended from Screwfix or Toolstation? Is there a suitable glue-in-a-
tube I could use, rather than mixing up tubs of powder etc?
Think most decent exterior stone to stone adhesives will be a variation on
mortar. So most probably a powder you mix with water. Most decent DIY
stores will sell it. Look for a tile adhesive suitable for exterior use.

Gripfill. Works for slates on the roof that come loose, so no reason
why it shouldn't work with slate on a step provided the slate is well
bedded and doesn't rock. Just wire-brush off any loose stuff from both
step and slate first.
My feeling too, but, about a year ago, I used Stixall to glue down a 4' high
x2' square angle iron bench to slabs, outside. It's still secure and has
been used for many jobs. Somehow I still don't really trust it.
OK, interesting. Even those sold specifically as floor tiles, then? I
think I'll just reuse the ones I've TBH, as they aree already cut to size
etc and as I mentioned, am just tarting the place up for sale anyway.
Thanks to everyone else for the Gripfill advice - am off to Toolstation! :)
