Loose concrete Roof tile, whats the best adhesive?

Found 18th Mar
Hi,

I have a loose end toof tile that has broken loose from the corner edge of a roof and found in the guttering.

What's the best adhesive (ready mixed if possible)here in the UK that will stick the tile back on and also re-inforce the cement used on the corner seam going up the side?


Thanks

Dead flies... Have you ever tried getting those suckers off your windscreen at the end of a long fast drive? Damn things blood must be made of superglue.
Use some expanding foam - toolstation.com/sho…=no

I've used it for similar. remember it "expands" - so don't use to much. Fit the tile in place first then spray this under the tile, keep the tile pressed down for a couple of minutes until the foam cures as otherwise the expansion could force the tile to lift a little. Once dry and excess foam can be cut away and if necessary anything that is left exposed can be painted to match surroundings.
3 parts sand to 1 part cement. Get rid of any loose material and re-do whilst up there.

For the sake of £10 just do the job properly.

Thanks for the info, can you get ready mixed roof cement?

The roof tile should have a small hole to enable you to nail it to the roof batten then just use a mortar mix to redo up the edge, you can buy bags of mortar mix in most diy shops if you dont fancy buying seperate bags of sand and cement
