I have two red brick fireplaces which look a bit shabby. I
would like to resurface them in either tile or a thin stone
such as slate. If anyone has experience with this,
- do I have to use heat resistant tile, or will standard floor tile
be ok? It will be only on the surround and hearth and not
inside the firebox.
- what type of cement product should I use to cover the bricks
and create a smooth surface for application of the tile?
- is this a bigger job than I am thinking? Would it be simpler
to use some type of flat stone which will be easier to apply
to a nonsmooth surface?
Thanks for any suggestions,
