Is there a specific kind of tile for wall around the wood stove?


Using Ceramic Tile Near Wood Stove - I am looking at putting tiles around my wood stove that currently has a very outdated stone surround. I am curious if there is a specific kind of tile I should use on the wall around the wood stove.


ANSWER - Any type of a clay based ceramic tile, which includes porcelain tile, is suitable around heat. Most quality ceramic tiles are fired in kilns near 2,000 degrees F, so they can withstand the heat. Just make sure you are bonding it to a stable stone or cement surface, and not to wood or any other type of material that is sensitive to heat. Also make sure you do not use an organic mastic adhesive and only use a cementitious thin-set adhesive. Good Luck.
