Hi all,

I am planning to install a multi fuel stove into my old Victorian fireplace and I'm wondering what's the the best solution for repointing the stonework inside.

I have seen other threads about this but most have brickwork but I have huge stones and slate.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks

OP,
Will the fireplace opening dimensions allow you to fit your stove of choice?
The flue itself can be swept by a chimney sweep using various brushes & flails - you will then, of course need to drop a flexi flue liner down the flue.

First rake out all the existing fireplace mortar to what seems a reasonable depth.
With a hard & dry scrubbing brush scrub away as much residue & soot as possible.
Then carefully point up (dont smear the stones etc) with a 3:1 sand & cement mortar
Keep a damp sponge handy.
