Hi
We are looking to replace our existing wooden fire surround.

We're not sure if the surround is all in one piece or whether the pillars and the mantle are separate.

Will the marble backplate be set into a rebate between the pillars or are the pillars usually solid up to the edge of the marble backplate ?

Thanks

Thesesunits are generally made as a single piece, although not always. It will probably be secured to the wall using two or more glass plates and screws which may be buried beneath the wall paper or even the plaster. Measuring from the face of the pillasters the distance from the front face to the wall should be greater than the distance from the front face to the face of the marble. The marble is often secured in place using just grip adhesive (e.g. Grip-Fill). At least that's how mine is done
