Adhere stacked stone veneer to brick fireplace with mastic or cement?

Francorosso's picture

I had a local stoneyard produce some nice cut stone to cover the brick around my fireplace, and they recommended that I use mortar to adhere them to the old brick.  I just want to know if I can use a mastic for the job.  The stones are cut on five sides so they stack nicely.  There will be some heat that comes out from the "burning glass" fireplace so I don't know if that will affect the mastic.....



Regular tile mastic and heat (post #194331, reply #1 of 1)

Regular tile mastic and heat do not work and play well with each other.

Of all the preposterous assumptions of humanity over humanity, nothing exceeds most of the criticisms made on the habits of the poor by the well-housed, well-warmed, and well-fed.  --Herman Melville
