must I remove existing mantel to reface my fireplace?
I have a tile surround on my fireplace and want to install granite over the tile. Do I have to remove my existing wood surround to do this? I have a flat hearth and realize that I will be adding 1 1/4" to the base. My granite will butt up against the wood instead of the wood sitting on the granite. If I have to remove it, can it be saved and reinstalled?
Thanks for the advice!
