    Hi everyone, first ever question asked, :oops: hope someone can help.

    We have decided to install a new "in-built" or "Cassette" type woodburner. We have done all the blookwork modifcations and lined the opening with firebricks just to be on the safeside, but we are realy stuck on the surrounding plaster. We have been told that normal plaster will crack at the temperates kicked out by the woodburner. So what do we use?

    Please does anyone have any suggestion or experiences?

    Hi Samsmum,
    I think you would be better to ask the manufacturer of your burner for the best "plaster"to coat the walls surrounding it.Im sure it would probably be cement or fireclay based,but anymore than that I couldn't say.Normal plasters as you say are of no use.
