Reattaching stone paver

Just Starting Out

Reattaching stone paver

Hello, Happy christmas eve! 

One of the pavers near our pool has come off and we need to reattach it. 
I believe it is some kind of natural stone but not 100% sure. 

We bought a bag of Ceremacrete but arent sure if we should use this considering how thick space is and the type of tile. 


Any advice would be deeply appreciated! 

first pic is of the tile (flipped over)  and second pic is the space where it was.

Re: Reattaching stone paver

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @summer33. It's marvellous to have you join us, and many thanks for your question about reattaching a stone paver.


If your pavers are made of natural stone, such as granite or limestone, it is generally not a good idea to use Ceremacrete. However, it is suitable for slate, and there's a chance that is what your tiles a made from. If you believe it might be some other form of natural stone, then you'd likely be better off with Davco 5kg SMP Evo Tile Adhesive, which is a type of polyurethane adhesive that is specifically designed for use on natural stone surfaces. It is formulated to provide strong, flexible bonds that can withstand the movement and expansion that can occur in natural stone surfaces due to temperature changes and other factors.


Another option would be to glue the paver back into position with Selleys 415g Liquid Nails Landscape Stone Concrete Adhesive. This will only work if the original mortar is still in place, allowing you to glue the two surfaces together as there is no depth to fill.


If you are unsure what type of paver you have, it is a good idea to consult a professional or contact the manufacturer to find the best repair method. 


Please let me know if you have any questions.

Hi @summer33 


It would also be good if you can  rub the back of the paver with a  half brick or  a flat hand size rock  use it like a cheese grater and sand some of that old  morter/glue off so you can get a good glue bond  and the paver sits flat not  a little proud.  

Like wise  in the old hole  tap the  white cement looking morter reasonably hard  with a hammer edge or  brickies chisel and see if it breaks up a bit.   If it is too hard then dont risk it as a misplaced swing  can hit another  stone and dislodge it not the end of the world but extra work.


Ps dont forget a refund  for that unused
