    Hi everyone,

    I've had one of the rooms in my house skimmed, but have decided to keep the old fireplace, hearth etc. Unfortunately, on closer inspection have realised that the hearth is not level, and consequently it is making the surround look wonky against the newly added picture rail and coving. Any ideas on how to raise one side of the surround so that it looks level? Have looked at the wedge shims from screwfix which I thought may work. Ideally I want to put the whole thing on an inclined plane, rather than just jacking up the one side, as I'm worried that it might cause the marble (fake) panel in the middle to crack. It's out by about 1cm.

    If the hearth is the problem why do you want to adjust the surround?
