Removing floor level brick hearth

clagaOctober 15, 2009


We are resurfacing a brick fireplace with travatine marbel and we want to remove a floor level brick hearth that is surrounded by hardwood flooring.

Does anyone have any suggestions on the best way to remove the brick from the hearth?

We have removed the old stone fireplace hearth and will be replacing it with granite with 3 beveled sides. Does it look better to raise the 3/4 thick granite so it ends up 1/8 to 1/4 higher than the existing floor or have it even with the floor and forget the bevel on the sides?
