  • Refmix mortar

    1. I cannot easily obtain fireclay. Any recommendations instead of the sand-fireclay mixture for the underfloor paste? I was going to use either plan sand or a thin layer of Refmix mortar.

    2. Any objections with using Refmix mortar in construction of the vent, chimney, and openning arch?

    Re: Refmix mortar

    Hey Jeff,

    Refmix will be perfect for the vent, chimney and opening arch. That area gets hot, so using a high temperature mortar is the right thing to do. Plus, it has a nice, fine grey finish, so it will look nice.

    I don't think you need to go to the trouble or expense of mortaring down your floor bricks. If you can't find fireclay, you can use a bed of fine sand and tap your floor bricks into place with a rubber mallet.

    Would other builders agree with that?

      I also found that by time i cut all my bricks in half, i had more than enough dust/sand for underneath the hearth. i still have a bag left over. But it would be a long drive from Calgary to deliver it to you )
