    Just had my drive and front path done and as you can see the front step is showing its age so seems a bit silly not to get it done as well.

    Am I ok tilling on top of these tiles or would you knock them off, also what tiles do I need for outside I would like some slate looking ones if possible. and finally what do think it would cost for someone to do it as Its the front of the house I want it done right.

    Looks like they're falling off anyway so personally yes, remove them, the drive looks like pattered concrete as opposed to block pavers, if I had done the job in pavers I would have replaced the step in the same style, an alternative would be to get a few natural patio stones an cut them to size then cement them onto your step.

    Don't be afraid of raising the threshold level up on the step to lose the pvc door frame a bit. Give yourself less to trip over.
