Ayuh,.... My question is Why attach it at all,...Hi Everyone
I'm in the process of installing a woodstove in my (new to me) home. I've got Terrazzo Tile on the floor, so I realize I don't REALLY need a "hearth pad" or a platform. But i think esthetically, it'll be more pleasing to raise the stove UP a bit. So I have a few options. The obvious one being = build a wood platform with 1/2 inch plywood and 1/2 durarock with hearth stone on it. But, would it be LESS expensive and MORE expedient to create the pad with concrete block, fill it with cement and cover THAT with durarock? I'm leaning towards that...but then...how to adhere it to the wall/floor? I'd rather NOT start drilling holes in the floor. And, tho' codes differ I'm sure there are similarities...would cement block beneath meet code?
I'd be interested to hear what you'all think will be more economical and if speedier...so much the better.
thanks in advance for your imput.
Gravity will hold it in place, just fine...
