FAQs

A list of most asked questions and answers related to Hearth and Fireplaces

  • Decorative objects such as artwork, vases and candles can be placed on the surface of a fireplace hearth to create a beautiful focal point. To further enhance the style of fireplace hearths and overall ambience of the room, you may also think about adding a rug, a fire screen or a stunning arrangement of firewood. Also be conscious of adding decorations that are combustible.

  • It’s important to hire credible and professional fire hearth installers, like the experts at Impala Stone, to ensure your hearth provides expert protection from the heat as well as looks amazing. Typically, they will first clear the area in front of the fireplace and then, with the chosen non-combustible and heat-resistant material, they will cut the material to the right size and shape and install it in front of the firebox, securing and finishing all edges and joints for a polished look.

  • The process for tiling a fireplace hearth in the UK is similar to those in other countries. Selecting the right tiles, preparing the surface, applying adhesive, setting the tiles, grouting them and sealing them are all necessary. When working on fireplace hearths, local laws and safety precautions must be strictly adhered to, and that’s why the best option is to get in touch with Impala Stone to tile your hearth for a fireplace.

  • It is vital only to use non-combustible materials for your hearth that meet all legal requirements and building codes. Hearth stone materials including natural stone, granite, limestone, marble, concrete, slate, brick and ceramic or porcelain tiles all have the necessary heat-resistant properties that make your fireplace safe. Choosing a material that accompanies your home’s look and style will mean you’ll have a safe and aesthetically pleasing hearth fireplace.

  • The floor area in front and within a fireplace is known as a fireplace hearth. It is composed of heat-resistant materials and is intended to shield the surrounding area from heat and embers. It also improves the fireplace’s overall attractiveness by acting as a decorative element.

  • A fireplace hearth is the floor space in front and within the fireplace. Fireplace hearths are made from non-combustible materials, such as stone, brick and porcelain tile, and protect the surrounding area from heat and embers, as well as giving the fireplace a beautiful touch, serving both practical and aesthetic objectives.

  • Your preferred style is the main factor that will determine which base is best for a fireplace hearth. Here at Impala Stone, we provide multiple choices for hearth tiles for your fireplace, including heat-resistant and durable limestone, sintered stone, granite, marble, slate, sandstone and gritstone. We can recommend the best base and materials to use for your home’s hearth, with tailored solutions to suit your visuals, cut to exact sizes.
