    Replacing a fireplace face,
    I'm in the process of refacing a fireplace. After removing the original rocky face the wall underneath is not very even.

    How do I even out the surface, and what would be the most effective way to tile the face of the fireplace? Can I do it without chicken wire or cement backer board? Do I have enough time to finish in a day? Thanks

    Furring the wall out with strips and then facing the furring with cement board would be my best guess.

    In a day? Good quality work takes time! What's the rush?

Fireplace [ 1 Answers ]

I have an existing fireplace (insert) w/ a brick chimney. It is fairly old, but in decent shape except for the back wall of the insert itself. It appears to be nothing more than concrete or mortar of some type over top of the back metal wall of the fireplace. It is cracked and has several plugs...
