maybe that was it and I used silicon mastic .
But what about if I want to get as close a match to the colour of the slates? Can that be done?
I use mastic along the vertical spaces between the slates as a quick repair job if there is water getting in under the slates.

Thanks.Kind of suck 'em and see.
I imagine it is s no brainer that surface preparation is 90% of the battle.
