I had a custom tile fireplace built to replace a wood burning one. Tile was mounted on Hardie board and framed out of wood. Tiles are 4×4 inches and 1/4 inch thick. Frame protrudes from the wall 4″ .
I planned to convert to gas but fireplace company says the frame cannot be wood. Contractors say this should not be an issue and they can install.
Does anyone have any insight on this?
Ty very much in advance.
