    Hi
    I've removed all the plaster on my living room chimney breast down to the brickwork and need it plastered. I've had conflicting advice on whether to use hardwall or render as a base coat? The fireplace will be possibly used with a log burner in the near future if funds allow.
    What would you guys reccomend?
    Thanks in advance

    If you render it that could be your final finish, I’ve done a couple like that, if hardwall it’d be skimmed which may have issues if a woodburner gets installed?
