Hi!

Any advice much appreciated. What material do you use for the roof of a masonry firebox?

The discussion and comments here: http://www.livingstonemasons.com/instructional/how-to-build-an-outdoor-fireplace seem to indicate that you can just use cement for the firebox roof.

If regular cement is used for the roof, not refractory cement, should the cement be painted with high-temperature paint such as Rutland or AW Perkins?

Thanks!

p.s. The bottom and sides of the firebox would be fire brick with refractory mortar. It is the roof of the firebox that I am concerned with.

What are you calling a "roof"? The slanted shelf, or the shoulder on top, or the chimney cap?
