Stonework......theoretically

If I were interested in getting some stonework done around my fireplace.....who would I call? Where could I see some samples of patterns and such so I can pick a design? Does anyone know anybody that does this work?

Granite specialist. The guys that did my countertops in my kitchen also due fireplaces. They are located in the city just of Cicero and Belmont. Granite City. Unless you mean like grey stone or something.

Brian, I did my fireplace, slate, it's so freaking easy. I'll send pictures later. I can't remember if you seen it before.

That'd be cool Rick,

I've been thinking about doing this myself. My biggest obstacle is design right now because it's an island fireplace. It's not like I can buy a prefab and slap it on. Right now it's just got some tile around it. But the builder screwed up and the tile is falling off

Ya his builder used like a teaspoon full of glue and stcuk the tile to the wall. I still woudl call neumann about that and ask why the tile was not put up correctly?

Take some digi pics of it and send it to them, it should be a full layer of stuff back there put on with a notched trowel and grouted in, not glued to the wall with construction adhesive.

If I wanted it fixed I would, but I don't particular like the options they gave me for the fireplace and I think it would add soooooooooooo much to the house to make it look REALLY nice, since it is the focal point of the whole lower level

True, you did.......

The island part isn't that big a deal if you go with a cast stone product, they make corner pieces to match. Some expanded metal mesh, mortar, and a good eye for random fitment of the stone and VIOLA!

Seriously, I do it but it's just to far to go for work right now.....I'm still not done with my place and it consumes all my time at the moment. If you could wait 'till late spring..........

Ya brian its really not that hard. put up the mesh, spread the morter, place the stones, bag in the joints with morter and tool it to look good. You can handle this, and even with a minimum of swearing.

Come to think of it I might just do this as back splash in my kitchen.

Taz, is there someplace I can go to decide on what stones or slate, cornerpieces, or whatever else I'm going to use?
