Tin fireplace

jwsjws99December 30, 2011

I am building a home and want to use a prefab insert and then want to use rusted tin to create a metal looking fireplace. Has anyone ever done this or seen it?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Tin melts at about 450 degrees Farenheit. Not the ideal material anywhere near a fireplace which can easily produce temperatures of 600 to 700 degrees. Tin is also very expensive and is used to plate other metals because it is highly resistant to rusting.
