Can the tile be installed over a granite slab ? - My fireplace has a boring black granite surround and I want to redo it in something more interesting. I love the glass tile that you used, but can it be installed over the granite and how would I have to do that?

I believe it is very secure. I worry that it would be cost prohibitive on just my social securiy income to remove the granite. I had hoped to do the tiling myself without removing the three pieces of granite (one on each side and one on top) as the joins are level. Or if I use a tiler it is good to know how they should be doing it. These slabs are currently around the gas log fire insert and inside the wood surround. Very boring! Especially with all the gorgeous options for tiling now available. Thank you for responding and for any advice you can give me!

Is glass tile an appropriate material for a fireplace surround? - I would have thought that glass would crack under the heat of the fireplace. Since you have designed this fireplace, I assume you can use glass tiles this close to the heat source. ?

We use it as an accent often in our homes in and around cooktops and around fireplaces. One of the most important aspects of installing glass tile is providing the proper substrate and you should be fine.

Thanks for your question. We usually use Honed Black Absolute Granite. This hearth was a remnant our local Stone Company had laying around. It is a Honed Caesar Stone. They also make a Logos Blue Limestone which would look nice as a hearth.

Absolutely love the look of your fireplace design! Is glass tile an appropriate material for a fireplace surround? I am concerned that the heat of the fire will crack or otherwise damage the glass tile. Please comment.

Gorgeous use of mini glass tile! Love it! They answer the question of cracking in another post. I will quote them "We use it as an accent often in our homes in and around cooktops and around fireplaces. One of the most important aspects of installing glass tile is providing the proper substrate and you should be fine."

It's a glass tile and in fact is Cashmere Mosaic Blend. Thanks for your questions.

Dimensions of mantle and fireplace opening - Is it possible to provide some dimensions to this fireplace mantle--looking to understand teh depth from wall for the legs, the width of the legs, the mantle shelf dimensions, etc, as well as trying to understand the dimensions of the fireplace inside to relate those. Its very, very nice.

Another question about the tile surround. - We are home builders in Knoxville and I can't get my tile guy to cover the black metal around the face of the fire box. This appears to be a pre-fab gas fireplace from what I can see on the inside. Is it? And do you have to do anything special to cover the metal or just glue it? Thanks.
