  1. Concrete, Stone & Masonry
    Greetings everyone! My wife and I are updating our 1980 basement and I have run into a challenge I’ve never faced before: removing bricks. this hearth is five rows of bricks and it sticks out much too far (we have to make a wide arc around the hearth when we want to walk around the fireplace)...
  2. Concrete, Stone & Masonry
    Hello, There is an older thread with similar question, but I thought a new topic could be opened since my question is how to ensure pressure is distributed evenly underneath a fairly large granite slab. My project is refacing a masonry fireplace. Existing hearth is brick+mortar topped with...

    Hi all, new to the boards and wasn't sure if this should go here or in the remodeling section... I have a boring "builder grade" ceramic tile fireplace in a home I am buying built in 2000. I want to remove the large beige tiles and replace them with some subway tile, some mosaic, or some of...

  7. Flooring

The existing hearth is about 3/8 inch higher than the wood T&G floor, with no subfloor (cheap 1942 construction). I'm planning to install 12" x 12" slate, so only about...
