I have a stone walkway and steps up to my front door, and the front facing pavers/stones on the top step have come loose yet again. When I put them back up, in order to have them flush at the top of the stair, there is about 1/2 in gap on the bottom. It looks fine, but I think the lack of support on the bottom is causing these things to repeatedly fall down.

Should I just find some slightly larger pavers? Or should I build up the bottom layer with something to offer support? If I did this I think I would only want it in the back so it was not visible. Or should I try the same approach with some possibly better adhesive (any recommendations here?) and convince my 4 year old daughter to stop standing directly on these "hanging" stones?

    Hello, and welcome to Home Improvement. A picture of the problem would really help us. And, you should probably take our tour so you'll know how best to participate here. – Daniel Griscom Aug 3 '19 at 18:30
  • larger pavers will help as will some sort of glue, what is under the pavers? – Jasen Aug 3 '19 at 23:43

    Got to have pictures. Show us the gaps, what's underneath, and how the pavers fit into the steps, etc. – Greg Nickoloff Aug 6 '19 at 17:43

Try the Gorilla Ultimate Construction Adhesive. Your four year old will be grown up before you know it and won't be a problem anymore. Good luck.
