Fireplace Renovation

Posted by ChrisReno (My Page) on

We want to refurbish our outdated brick wood burning fireplace. The bricks are held on by a Black mortar type material and almost impossible to remove. Can we just put the new mortar over top of this material? We are replacing the brick with a rock material. What is your advice?
