A friend of mine asked me to post this. Thanking you in advance
for any advice you can offer. I'll pass it along.
"You are good at these. I need to see if I can stir up some
direction and wonder if you could plug this into an appropriate
forum to see if you can get some feedback.
I am retiling my fireplace. In doing so, I've had to strip off a
layer of granite tile and ceramic tile. I have it down to the
brick except on top of the hearth where it appears they built the
hearth up about 2 inches using a cement. Getting the tile off
the top of the hearth has been a real chore I presume because it
wasn't set right on top of brick but a much more porous surface.
Do I chip it all out? Should I regrout it? How do I repair the
edges which are real rough - I presume I have to get those back
to 90 degrees again. How do I prepare that surface so that I can
put wonderboard down and then retile?"
Memory was given to mortals so that they might
have roses in December.
