Fixing Screw Up Exterior Edge Finish

The Job is an exterior walkway over concrete finished with porcelain tiles . The tile installer did not overlap the floor over the edge finish and so the edge pieces are all in the process of popping off exposing the bare edge concrete again. I imagine it is because there is nothing stopping water /frost from seeping in. Given that redoing it is out of the question what can be done to finish the edge. I though bricks /pavers as a trim or other stones but then the same thing is likely to happen with the mortar. I though some kind of exterior applied concrete product top give it a finish. And then I thought well lest ask a bunch of other smart people and get some knowledgeable feedback so here I am. I can post pictures if required.

Welcome, Niels.

It'll help a lot if you'll post some photos of what you're dealing with.

Will also help if you'll add some information to your User Profile giving us a geographic location for this exterior project. Could make a lot of difference in the responses.
