Durata Dry-Stack Stone Fireplace – Hicksville, Ohio

Durata Dry-Stack Stone Fireplace - Hicksville, OhioNO MORTAR REQUIRED!  These homeowners asked for a simple stone fireplace built around an electric fireplace that they’d already purchased.  Rather than a traditional mortar application, we used this dry-stack stone product from Durata (Shenandoah color).  It is made of stamped & colored concrete, so it has the authentic look and feel of real stone.  The installation requires no mortar, but rather a series of heavy duty hanging brackets combined with a good construction adhesive in each groove (we used PowerGrab).  Our main concern was making sure the structure that we built could withstand the weight of the concrete, so we placed studding 12″ apart and used a massive 2×10 double header over the fireplace opening.   Should do the trick!  This project can be completed for right around $2K in most cases (fireplace and television not included).  Let me know if I can build one of these for you!  419-212-3200
