    Hi all

    I will be soon attempting to lay a limestone hearth in my living room

    Should it be laid on a 4/1 mortar mix?
    Also do I need to seal the tile before laying? If so what is a good product to seal the hearth with anyways once it is laid?
    Thanks

    4:1 is good. no need to seal underneath , maybe just wet them underneath before fixing. i used clear japlac stuff on mine.
    do you have a concrete base to lay them on?
