Can anyone give me some tips on fitting a clay fireback? We've opened up a
wall where a fireplace used to be, but there's just a hole with no fireback.
I assume I need to back-fill the void between the back of the fireback and
the back wall and make good any gaps on the sides, but ISTR fire cement
coming into the picture somewhere - also, what's the deal with the optional
lintel they also sell - how do you know if you need to fit one?
No one at the merchants I went to seem to have a real top on the answers, so
I thought I'd pick your collective brains. I've tried Google, but I haven't
found any detailed fitting guide.
Any pointers gratefully received.
