For most people, home improvement is not a full time job but more of a hobby or chore. Because of this, minute details such as, different styles of bricks, concrete, and mortar are things an individual might not know offhand. However, differences in these types of products can be very great, and based on the situation can directly impact the performance and durability of your installation.

A great example is mortar. Most people believe that all mortar is the same. It is all just a grey paste that is mixed together and used to stick bricks or other masonry products together. This is not the case. Depending on the project, specific types of mortar will be necessary. For fireplaces and other types of projects that can be exposed to extreme heat, a high temperature mortar is a necessity.

FireRock manufacture’s a high temperature mortar that is made specifically for FireRock products. This mortar can withstand both high temperatures and inclement weather. This combination makes FireRock’s mortar ideal for both our indoor and outdoor products.

“I use FireRock mortar on all of my fireplaces, even those that are not a FireRock. The quality of the product is superb and I have never had a problem with it not setting well. Once FireRock’s mortar sets, you are more likely to break the brick than break the mortar.”

A lot of times, when installing a project, the devil is in the details. Be sure to research all the minor details and ensure that you are getting exactly everything you need. Small details, such as the type of mortar, can make or break your project.
