Question about Crafts & Hobbies
We are in Charente Maritime in France and have a Charentaise farmhouse which is 170 years old.
Our fireplace in the lounge is made of solid stone and the mantle which was obviously in two pieces originally ,has lost its mortar and has split in the middle. We, also have a wood burner in situ.
How do I repair the mantle?
If your mantle is stone I would suggest drilling 2-3 holes diameter should be relevent to the thickness so as not to split the stone. do this on both sidees of the mantle. Use a branded epoxy such as araldite and bond steel rods into the holes in the stone mantle bridging them together, any fine cracks can be filled with a fire cement and wiped clean.
Hope this helps
