Can tile be installed on a fireplace?
Tile materials such as porcelain and ceramic are known for low heat transfer properties. It is important to note that where you intend on using tile in a fireplace application is of the utmost importance, i.e. fireplace surround vs. insert. Ultimately, every scenario is unique, and every application and installation are different therefore we would strongly recommend consulting a licensed installer who has experience with this type of installation and will provide a suitable warranty to cover your application. Your installer should verify that the conditions and application meet local requirements or industry expectations. Any installation guidelines are not intended to supersede federal, state, or local regulations which may require modifying the existing installation, materials, or structural components. The customer assumes responsibility for compliance with all building codes.
